Mobile phones and tablets are part of everyday life and they go everywhere with us. So if you’re planning to go camping, walking or hiking you’ll need the right equipment to protect and charge your phone on the go.
Luckily, there are now some great new gadgets on the market to ensure you AND your tech have a great outdoor life. The Trends Buzzer is on hand to help you protect your 21st century tools and keep them charged up and ready for action, even in the toughest conditions.
Full Charge Ahead!
One of the main gripes you have as a smartphone owner is loss of power. The problem is, plug sockets are a rare thing off the beaten path, and running low on battery is the thing of nightmares for those of us who depend on our phones for everything. Of course, due to the high performance of our smartphones, the battery life is nowhere near the 3 day eternity of your old Nokia 8210.
Keeping them going is the main battle when you’re far from the creature comforts and plug sockets of home. Luckily, we have a fix for that:
The Arctic Portable Powerbank is one of our favorites. The slim, brushed aluminum design means it doesn’t take up too much space in your backpack, and also keeps your tech accessories looking stylish – which we think is just as important!
The benefit of this pack is that it will charge any USB-charged device, so you don’t need one per product. This also means that you’ll be able to charge your friends’ devices if they get stuck too; always good for kudos on the trails.
The Arctic Powerbank provides up to 16 hours standby time, which is effectively an extra charge and a bit more. It’s intelligent too, so the unique charge controller keeps an eye on your device’s output to save both of them suffering from over voltage or current.
Protect Your Loved Ones
One of the most common ways to damage your smartphone is by dropping it. There’s nothing a shiny glass-constructed smartphone hates more than a fall from grace onto the hard surface below.
We’ve all been there, and we’ve all seen a cracked screen – not a pretty sight. At the Trends Buzzer, we don’t leave home without a protective cover on our iPhones, and what’s more this cover not only protects from impact but also from water.
Unlike most very protective cases, the Joy Factory Axtion Pro doesn’t turn your iPhone 5 into a rubberized brick – and it still allows you to use its features. Fully waterproof and shockproof, the Axtion Pro can even withstand being fully submerged in water for up to 90 minutes – perfect if you drop it in a stream whilst taking a short cut!
It comes complete with a highly protective but responsive screen protector, and the camera works perfectly thanks to the extra wide cut out – which also stops glare from the flash at night (a common problem on cheaper cases).
The ports are covered thanks to screw-in covers, which still allow you to use them if and when you need to.
Stay Inside Your Own Little Bubble
Not sure you’ll need protection built for the military, or want something a little more affordable? The Bubbleshield is a brilliant gadget, and designed to fit smartphones and tablets of all shapes and sizes.
The Bubbleshield is the perfect solution to keeping your smartphone or tablet dry in your hiking backpack, or safe in your tent should your groundsheet fail overnight!
The Bubbleshield will still allow you take photos and send messages too, so you can use your device even when you would usually keep it out of harm’s way. Splash-proof, rain-proof, BBQ sauce-proof; it’s the ideal pairing for your phone.
So if you’re planning to go out into the great outdoors, take some protection and energy for your devices, just as you will for yourself. Protect and charge your smartphone or tablets even in the most extreme conditions – or maybe just invest in one if you’re a bit messy and clumsy at home!
