It’s that time of year again. School is out and the warm weather is inviting us to go boating, camping, hiking and road-tripping. Besides sunscreen and snacks, there a few other essential items you should remember to take with you on your vacation:
Flashlights or lanterns – If you’re going to be spending time beneath the stars this summer, make sure you have a reliable, bright LED flashlight or handheld lantern to guide you in the dark. Rayovac’s Indestructible series of products are up to the task for any camping trip, withstanding basic drops and dings better than most other alternatives.
DC Chargers and Inverters – Portable power sources are crucial for keeping important devices running while you’re away from home. By plugging car chargers and inverters into your vehicle’s power outlets you can directly convert DC to AC electricity and continue using your phone, tablet, coffee maker and other critical electronics needed on your trip.
Mosaic LED flex lights – Decorate your boat or camper with these 2 ft. LED light strips, which come in 15 colors with a remote control.
LED Trailer Light kit – Get a set of reliable DOT-approved, fully-submersible LED lights for your trailer. Nothing is more frustrating (and dangerous) when hauling a boat across the countryside than having trailer lights that aren’t working properly. These LED bulbs are 100,000 hour-rated, so they should be the last ones you ever need to buy.
Maintenance chargers – Keep your marine or power sport batteries charged when they are not in use so you can rely on them when you need to. Just hook them up to the right SLI battery charger, and they will remain fresh, resist sulfation and never overcharge.
Alkaline batteries – Make sure to have some AA, AAA and 9-volt batteries around to keep battery-powered objects running when you’re away from electricity. Portable fans, lanterns, those devices that blow-up air mattresses, and many other things rely on these common batteries to operate.
Whether you get stuck picking up Aunt Edna at Cousin Eddie’s, or you’re able to get away for some uninterrupted fun in the great outdoors, it’s always good to stay connected with the power you rely on. Have a safe, enjoyable summer and stop by Batteries Plus Bulbs to make sure you’re ready for anything that comes your way.
