One thing I forget when I bought a car camping pass is that I am going to want to use my camera and phone throughout the weekend, and there is no way they will last 3 days without a charge.
I understand there are charging station(s) in the camping area but this doesn't sound like a good idea - crowded and time-consuming. Someone here also mentioned a solar charging device but this doesn't sound like a good idea either - I plan to be out and about when the sun's out. Ideally I'd like to charge my devices overnight.
I could plug them into my car but this might drain the car battery. And I don't plan to keep my car running all night either.
I thought about a small generator but it's not allowed. Besides, I imagine it would be a hassle to deal with.
So are there any alternatives to the small generator idea? Something that can charge small gadgets like phones and cameras at any time of day (particularly night) and can do so for 2 or 3 nights? I came across a couple items at Costco & Home Depot the other day that are along the lines of what I'm looking for (see pics below) - a Black & Decker Portable Power Station and the "Power Station PSX 2". Does anybody know how long these things can run for? Would they last the weekend? Keep in mind I would only be using them overnight. In my google searching I also came across this, the Mophie Juicepack Powerstation Pro...not sure if that might also do the job. help
