Top Camping Gadgets

At Questor Insurance we know there is nothing better than getting close to nature while embarking on a camping trip. Spending beautiful evenings under the stars toasting marshmallows and spending days exploring the local surroundings are just a few of our favourite camping highlights. Throughout our camping trips we have picked up a few tips and learnt about some rather nifty gadgets which can really enhance your camping experience (even if some are just for fun!). Take a look below at our top 5 camping gadgets:

Top 5 Camping Gadgets

  1. BioLite CampStove BioLite

    Priced from £124.95 the Bio light camp stove is your perfect camping accessory, allowing you to charge your gadgets, cook and have light all from one small portable device. Rather than having to buy gas canisters the device burns twigs, pinecones and other biomass to create energy from a smokeless flame.

  2. Heater Meals

    Don’t want to waste precious time cooking? Heater Meals have developed self-heating meals, allowing your meal to be ready in 10-12 minutes without having to do any hard work or washing up! The self-heating range include green pepper steak, vegetarian three cheese lasagne, Southwest style chicken with rice and beans and many others to tickle your taste buds.

  3. Portable Phone Charger

    Camping doesn’t mean you have to cut yourself off from the world, there are many methods to keep your phone charged throughout your camping trip suiting all budgets. There are many types of devices designed to charge mobiles, some you have to charge before you leave home and others are solar powered. We advise only choosing a solar powered device if the weather looks promising, no-one wants a wet phone!

  4. Pocket Shower Pocket Showe

    Camping where there are no showers? The pocket shower is simple to use and can give up to an 8 and a half minute shower – perfect for washing your hair and freshening up! Fill the device with water early in the morning and leave it in the sun to absorb the heat, by the time you are ready for a shower the water will be a comfortable temperature.

  5. A Memory Foam Pillow

    Don’t ruin your camping trip with a bad night’s sleep and pack a supportive pillow. Our favourite is the Outwell Memory Pillow. It’s light weight, easy to carry and helps give a restful night’s sleep, you will soon be wondering how you lived without one.
