Off the Grid - Camping Without 120-Volt AC Electricity




Here are some 12-volt-powered camping accessories can make outdoor life a lot easier

From the pages of Woodall's Camping Life Magazine

The lack of 120-volt AC electricity doesn’t mean you have to be up a creek without power. You can heat, cool, pump, curl, and light almost anything you could ask for with today’s 12-volt-powered camping accessories. 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 camping 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 Camping Accessories

The revolutionary SOLO 7.5 ($253) from Brunton brings power to the weekend camper or long expedition adventurer far away from electrical outlets. The new Solo can operate a variety of electronics such as laptops, TVs, air pumps and cell phones. The unit is easily recharged when plugged into a vehicle DC outlet, household outlet or 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 Camping Accessories

Compact, bright and always ready, the Rechargeable 12V LED Light ($20) spotlight from Cabela’s will come in handy whenever you need light in or around your vehicle, camper or campsite. The handheld 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 Camping Accessories

The 12-volt Inflate-All Pump System ($40) from Coleman is ideal for camping. Featuring both 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 ($30) from Coleman is based on the company’s simple, effective LED Rechargeable spotlight. The combination of the state-of-the-art halogen bulb, reflective mirror technology and 12-volt...
