Tech Essentials For Your Next Camping Trip

With spring in the air the great outdoors beckon. We've got plans to take a little hike, explore some new trails and go camping! But since we're Unplggd, we always like to be well equipped/prepared, and these great items can make your adventure a little bit more fun and safe...

SteriPen Adventurer Opti
This is a super tiny water purifier that you can carry with you on any camping trip without taking a toll on your backpack capacity. We like that is fast, lightweight, easy to use and leaves zero aftertaste. About 90 seconds is all it takes to clear a whole liter of water and eliminates all micro-organisms, bacteria and even viruses. It uses UV lighting to do its magic. A green LED lights up when the water is ready. Simple and powerful, we like that.

Victorinox Dual Pro X
This Swiss Army pocket knife comes with a pair of one hand opening lock blades and 10 functions in total. The dual density and very ergonomic handle will never slip from your hand. Some of the features are: Blade, Seat Belt Cutter, Phillips Screwdriver, Can Opener, Small Flat Screwdriver, Bottle Opener, Large Screwdriver, Wire Stripper, Reamer and even a key ring.

Energizer Trailfinder 6 LED Headlight
We love this tiny light that, weights almost nothing, has the new ratcheting tilt adjustment and the 4 light modes: Area, Spot, Flood and even Red LED for night vision. On/Off is done via a push switch and the soft elastic head band will make it less tiresome to use it and wear it. The fact that uses LED's that never burn or break and the 19 hours of runtime is what set it apart from the rest.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA102YL
Without spending a lot of money, you can get decent HD video and extreme waterproofing case to protect your movies. We like that it captures 14 megapixels stills and video at 1080p. We wish the image quality was a little bit clearer but that's the price you pay for the convenience of a weather proof package.
