Keeping your devices charged on the move is a permanent problem for techy travelers, but this portable charger promises to change that.

The Powerstation boasts A/C and USB-C + A outlets for compatibility with pretty much any device, and recharges using a solar panel. It can even charge up to five devices at once, so there will be no arguing over who gets to use it first.

Boasting a 27,000mAh battery, the largest size allowed in carry-on luggage under TSA regulations, the Powerstation will keep a small army of devices operational. Take it on a group camping trip or take it with you on a long solo hike through the wilderness.

It is capable of charging an iPhone X 10 times over or a Canon DSLR battery 12 times. For photographers on a multiday shoot, a battery pack like this could be a godsend.

You can get your hands on a Powerstation for $229 once the Kickstarter campaign ends. It seems like a lot of money if you just need something to boost your phone during a long day out, but if you are headed off on a more extreme trip, it will justify its expense.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
