Cool Camping Tech: Multi-use items to help you on your next trip

If you’re in the wild this summer, you’re not alone. The number of first-time campers during the pandemic reached more than 10 million and access to cellular/Wi-Fi while camping, glamping or doing the RV/van adventures was top of mind for 57 percent of those folks.

Verizon’s tech expert Diana Alvear can take you to the next level with eco-friendly and affordable tech for your remaining summer adventures.

If you want your devices to multitask on the road, check out this mophie powerstation that doubles as an air compressor! This powerhouse device can charge up to two devices and can easily jump a full-sized truck or a 12-volt vehicle battery. Jumper cables are included! The air compressor has interchangeable nozzles and adjustable pressure settings – and there’s a bright LED floodlight. Way to be safe on the road.

The TYLT Power Bottle is also multi-faceted – a 17-ounce water bottle that’s double layered and vacuum insulated to keep liquids cold for 36 hours – or hot for up to 14 hours. The opening accommodates most standard ice cube sizes and the body fits most vehicle cup holders. And it’s BPA-BPS free. The battery base is both waterproof and removable for cleaning. So, stay hydrated and keep your device charged while on the road – a two-fer value.

Let’s say you’re traveling to a great park destination that has Verizon’s 5G coverage – or checking out other tourist attractions along your route. The Motorola one 5G UW ace can take advantage of all that network speed? Enjoy ultra-clear video chats with your check-ins back home. Go over 2 days on a single charge with a 5,000 mAh battery and get hours of power in minutes with fast charging. Capture low-light photos and ultra-wide angle shots with the 48 MP triple-camera system. And for safe, hands-free control, it supports multiple Google Assistant and Alexa.

And here’s a big one: Verizon will plant a free for every Verizon eco-friendly accessory sold this year – up to 1 million trees. That’s one way to invest in your technology – and also the future. Our eco-friendly accessories are made in part from plant-based or recycled materials – or they are 100 percent compostable. Check out Eco-Friendly accessories on our website – from chargers to phone cases – like the Incipio and Tech21 cases for all kinds of devices.

We wish you a safe glamping, camping, van and RV travel experience! You can find more on Verizon’s website for the latest deal at
