This is the most expensive product on this list, and it’s not hard to see why. The ECOFLOW Delta is a massive power station that can keep you going for probably a week of camping. It’s a 1260Wh battery pack with 6 1800W AC outlets, There’s four USB-A ports, and two USB-C ports. There’s also a car socket on the backside.

So what can this thing power? Well a lot of things. It can power an electric fry pan for up to an hour and a half. Your laptop for about 23 hours, power your drone up to 23 times. And charge your camera about 65 times. This can also be used as a home backup in case the power goes out. It can power a CPAP machine for around 18-22 hours, or a fridge for 10-20 hours.

If you’re buying the ECOFLOW DELTA, then this solar panel is going to be a good buy to go with it. As it can help replenish the juice used by the Delta, thanks to the Sun. This is a 160 Watt solar panel that can be put out to collect juice and fill your ECOFLOW Delta, or really any other ECOFLOW power station.

It’s a pretty compact solar panel, weighing in at around 15.4lbs. It also comes with a kickstand case to protect the panels and prop them up to get the most amount of sun possible.

YETI Tundra Haul Portable Wheeled Cooler

You have to keep your food cold while you are out camping, right? And what’s better than a YETI cooler? This is the first ever YETI cooler that is on wheels. Making it easier to take it camping, to the beach or out to a picnic. It also has a durable welded aluminum arm with comfortable grips, so it isn’t so uncomfortable to wheel around.

It also has permafrost insulation, which helps to keep your ice, as ice. That’s thanks to the pressure-injected commercial-grade polyurethane foam in the walls and lid.

Anker 521 Portable Power Station

71fvfCb3YML AC SL1500

If you don’t need something quite as large as the ECOFLOW Delta, Anker is here with its 521 Portable Power Station, and this one is actually portable.

This has 256Wh of power, and thanks to it being a LiFePo4 battery, it’s going to last a lot longer, over 6,000 recharges. There are two AC outlets, a 60W USB-C outlet, as well as two USB-A ports and a car socket. It also has a very bright light below the ports that make it easier to see what’s happening. Which is a really nice touch, especially in a power outage.

This power station has actually come in handy for myself a few times, even though I don’t really ever go camping. That’s because of the powerful storms that rolled through Michigan last year, leaving us without power for a few days. And the Anker 521 Portable Power Station helped run fans, and charge my laptop without any issues.

YETI Rambler 36 oz Bottle

61NX4AoSblL AC SL1500

Whether, you’re camping or not. It’s important to stay hydrated, and that’s where the YETI Rambler comes into play. This is a 360z water bottle, that is also vacuum insulated to keep your cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot. YETI does not claim how long that will last, just “until the last sip”. Again, if you’re camping, you’re probably going to be drinking quite a bit of water, so that won’t matter as much.

This one also has the chug cap, so you can pop it off and chug as much water as needed.
