Power on the Go

Whether you tap into your camper's 12–volt house battery, your vehicle's cigarette lighter, or one of the many power points in modern cars and trucks, there's a vast array of accessories to make your life easier. Mom can still fix her hair in the morning with a 12–volt hair dryer and curling iron. Here are some products we found that will help everybody in the family stay connected even when you're not “on the grid.”

Brunton

The revolutionary SOLO 7.5 ($253) from Brunton brings power to the weekend camper or long expedition adventurer way off the grid. The new Solo can operate a variety of electronics such as laptops, TVs, air pumps, cell phones. The unit is easily recharged when plugged into a vehicle DC outlet, household outlet or using Brunton's solar panels. Weighing in at just four pounds, the lightweight, waterproof unit can provide power for hours.

Brunton's Solaris 6 ($139) gives you a unique way to juice your on–the–go electronics: solar power. The unit masters a 12–volt output and weighs only 6.4 ounces. It utilizes Brunton's new CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide) technology, making it an extremely efficient conductor in a thin film format.

Cabela's

Compact, bright and always ready, the Rechargeable 12V LED Light ($19.99) spotlight from Cabela's will come in handy whenever you need light in or around your vehicle, camper or campsite. The hand–held spotlight plugs into most 12–volt automotive, ATV and UTV power outlets for convenient charging and quick access. At less than 2 inches long, the green anodized aluminum body weighs just 1.6 ounces, and is impact, saltwater spray and fatigue–tested to ensure reliable performance in extreme conditions. Its NiMH battery operates for up to 120 minutes per seven–hour charge.

Coleman

The 12–volt Inflate–All Pump System ($39.99) from Coleman is ideal for camping. Featuring both a high–pressure (165 psi) and high–volume air systems and multiple adapters for virtually any air valve makes it a pump for nearly all occasions. Automatic digital pressure gauge allows you to set the desired pressure, turn on the pump and walk away, shutting off when the desired pressure is reached. Inflates and deflates high–volume inflatable products such as airbeds or marine towables.

The 12–volt Halogen Spotlight ($29.99) from Coleman is based off their simple, effective LED Rechargeable spotlight. The combination of their state–of–the–art halogen bulb, reflective mirror technology and 12–volt power supply produce 2,900 lumens of light, comparable to 3 million candlepower spotlights, for seeing halfway across the night. Trigger style On/Off switch compared with power–port plug provides illumination for nighttime navigation.

Coleman's Portable Camping Blender ($49.99) is powerful enough to chop, blend or mix anywhere. Powered by two 6–volt rechargeable batteries, it can be charged using the 12–volt or 120–volt chargers stored in its base. Blends twenty to thirty 48–ounce pitchers on one full battery ...
