After all, it is essential to your safety. In this blog post, I’m going to give you some tips on how to ensure your phone stays charged while camping. So if you want to stay in touch with family and friends and take those mesmerizing campfire selfies with everybody in the group, make sure to read on!
Invest in Some Good Quality Gear
Before you make your way out on the camping trip, make sure you have the right gear. It’s always easier to charge your phone if you have some specialized camping equipment designed to keep your phone running for longer. Look for items like solar chargers, power banks, and portable generators. All of this will allow you to easily charge your phone’s battery while you’re out camping.
Conserve Your Battery
Knowing how to conserve your phone’s battery is the key to making sure it lasts longer. So try to avoid needless requests on your phone, like repeatedly accessing your inbox, playing games, or streaming videos while camping. If you must check your emails, try to switch your phone to low power mode or even airplane mode to minimize drain on the battery and conserve power.
Look for Places to Charge Your Phone
If you find yourself without any specialized camping gear to charge your phone, you may want to look for other places in your camping area to charge your device. You may have luck finding a local store that offers charging kiosks or even charging stations in areas with nearby electricity. Just make sure to read the safety instructions first before you plug your device into any of these outlets.
Share Battery with Your Group
Chances are you’re not the only one in your camping group who needs to charge their phone. So if you want to stay connected with the group and nobody else has any of the specialist camping gear, why not share your phone’s battery with them? You can do this by connecting your phone with another phone using a power cable or a special adapter.
Charge Your Phone at Home
If the option of sharing your battery with your group is not available, then the best course of action is to charge your phone at home before you leave for the camping trip. Make sure to charge it enough so that you can make calls, send texts, and surf the web during the entire duration of your camping trip. Also, make sure to bring a few power banks or portable chargers so you can recharge your device while you’re on the route.
Check Out Some DIY Charging Solutions
If none of the above solutions work, then you can always create your own charging solution while you’re out camping. Hopefully you’re well prepared for your camping trip and brought some basic items like paper clips, socks, and matches with you. You can use these items to build your own charging cable or to construct a makeshift charger. If you need extra help, watch the video tutorial below for more information.
Keeping your phone charged can be a real challenge while camping, but taking the right steps will help you stay connected and safe. Utilizing some of the aforementioned tips, you can ensure that your phone stays powered for the entire duration of your camping trip!
