A good stove is a necessity on every camping trip.
Upgrade the old clunky chemical burning one with a BioLite Wood Burning CampStove from REI for $130.
It's small, sleek, and light weight and burns twigs scattered around your campsite.
But don't worry, it gets hot enough to cook a full meal.
And here is the best part, it generates enough energy to charge your smartphone camera or any other gadget through a USB port.
Another good camping charger comes from JOOS.
It relies on the sun.
The JOOS Orange is the size of a tablet.
It can give you 2 hours of talk time after an hour of charging.
It's available on the JOOS site for $150.
Never drink sketchy water again.
Thanks to the SteriPEN.
Double A batteries power the UV rays to ensure a safe glass of water.
Models start at 50 bucks at select sporting goods stores.
