Convenient Phone Rechargers

It is super handy to use a recharger to keep your phone battery topped off while camping without electricity. The capacity of the power bank and number of connection ports are important factors to consider in relation to your power demands. To determine the best recharger for you, think about the number of devices you have, the length of your camping trip and how much you will be using your devices. Ask yourself, “Will I actually need to recharge my recharger during my trip?” If your answer is “yes”, you may need an entire recharging kit.

Use Your Car Battery As A Phone Charger

If you are camping near your car it is possible to use your car battery to charge your phone. Many car chargers have multiple ports so you can charge more than one device at a time. Just be careful that you don’t run your car battery down too low to be able to start your car when you are ready to pack up and head for home. Some car chargers have the ability to display the charging status of your device as well as the car battery voltage.

Reduce The Need To Charge Your Phone Without Electricity While Camping

If you are willing to conserve power you can reduce or even eliminate the need to charge your phone while camping without electricity. Here are a few tips to lower your phone’s power consumption.

  1. Update apps. BEFORE you leave home, make sure your apps are all up-to-date so your phone is not trying to do an auto update while you are in the wilderness.
  2. Turn off apps. If you are not using apps … especially your social media apps … you should turn them off instead of letting them run in the background because they are big power drains on your phone’s battery.
  3. Turn off notifications. Do you really need to know one of your friends is chatting on Facebook Live when you are trying to unplug? Ummm, no! Notifications demand power so turn them off when you are camping.
  4. Connectivity features … just say NO! The convenience of an electronic map is great until it drains your battery faster than the speed of light. If you are not actively using your phone’s Location (GPS), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionality you should turn them off.
  5. Use power saving mode. Some phones have “Extreme Power Saving” modes that limit the phone’s functionality for the purpose of saving power and extending battery life. Check out the specifics for your phone for details.
  6. Reduce screen brightness. The brighter the screen, the greater the power consumption. So, lower the brightness level as much as possible to extend the battery life on your camping trips.
  7. Text instead of call. If you need to communicate while you are camping, try to reduce your talk-time as much as possible. Texting requires much less power than talking on your phone.
  8. Turn off your phone. If you are camping in a remote area without good cell coverage, your phone will continue searching for a signal … this devours power and rapidly eliminates the battery power. So, only turn the phone on for short periods of time when you are actually using it.
