Dry Case ($39.99)
For people who don’t need a rugged, waterproof case on their iPhone all the time, a product like DryCase is perfect. Whether you’re going on vacation, camping, kayaking, rafting, etc., using the DryCase will allow you to easily store your phone, ID, credit cards, and passport during your adventure. Plus, when the day is done, just take it out. If the $40 price tag is a bit steep, look on Amazon for cheaper brands that do the same job. The DryCase, however, has a few extra bells and whistles if $40 sounds reasonable to you.
PowerPot 5 ($59.99)
Cook your meals over the campfire and charge your phone at the same time with PowerPot. The PowerPot works over any stove or heat source, including open flames. For larger groups to feed, the PowerPot 10 does the same job in a larger size. Power Practical even claims that it will charge your device as fast as your power outlet at home.
EU Boom 2 ($199.99)
The UE Boom 2 is smaller than it looks, making it the perfect portable waterproof speaker for your camping adventures. You get up to 15 hours of playtime and it charges via Micro USB, which means you can also charge your speaker using the old PowerPot. What is a party without music after all?
RAVPower 10050mAh Life Proof Power Bank ($25.99)
I would recommend a solar charger, but in my opinion they just aren’t up to the task yet and work better for emergency situations. You can sit in direct sunlight charging your iPhone for eight hours if you like…or fill this power bank up before you leave for your trip and be ready to go. At 10050 mAh, it can pack a lot of power. In addition, it is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, which is perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities. You will get almost four full charges from iPhone 6. The power bank works as a flashlight and can charge two devices. Do you need more power? Review the RavPower Xtreme.
OlloClip 4-in-1 Lens ($79.99)
If you want to take particularly impressive photos on your adventure, check out the Olloclip. This 4-in-1 lens has a fisheye, 10x macro, 15x macro, and wide angle for a variety of options. If you prefer taking fun photos around the water, check out Hitcase for a rugged case with custom lens options. Either product will give you greater flexibility in the photos you take.
