TIPS

Working out which electronics to take on your next adventure? The key is understanding your power sources and planning accordingly. Carrying a different wire or cord for every device is silly when you can power cameras, GPS, phones, iPods, tablets and batteries through USB.

Whittle down the different type of USB charging options you have and theoretically you could power your entire expedition off a solar panel and lithium ion battery using two different types of wire.

Powertraveller Monkeytails ensure that even these wires take up little space and are immune to varying temperatures.
