GOAL ZERO

These gad­gets look good and can take the hard knocks too, write Jen­nifer Dudley-Ni­chol­son and Rod Ch­ester

There are plenty of bat­tery packs out there but most aren’t as rugged as this one with an IPX6 wa­ter­proof rat­ing. It has a Mi­cro USB cable built in, or you can plug any cable into its two 2.4 amp USB ports. Its bat­tery packs in 7800mAh of power so it should charge your smart­phone two or three times or your ac­tion cam­era as many as five times. A panel of LED lights let you use this de­vice as a torch in your tent and it is de­signed to work with the Goal Zero so­lar panel, which will charge the bat­tery in eight hours of di­rect sun­light. Enough power for a few days of liv­ing rough.
