As technology gets more and more advanced, we tend to start bringing more and more technology with us on hikes. Unlike Compass & map, almost every piece of equipment requires power. Some turns to Solar Power as a source, but it is very unreliable in South Western BC where overcast skies rules the day. I personally brings a battery pack for my HD Camcorder and my digital camera, an iphone battery – case-mate fuel (which will charge the iphone 3 times), lots of AA batteries for my Garmin etrex GPS & flashlights, as well as all the cords needed to charge all these gadgets.
How do you keep your gadgets charged on backpacking trips? Please leave your comments below.
