Tentfinder light

Here at Camping Gadgets we’re constantly forgetting where we parked the car, the same can happen when you pitch up your tent (which is your home) for the weekend festival. After a few cheeky beers and the masses of other tents that have pitched up near you, the whole situation gets a lot worse.

  • Tripping over guide lines, falling into other peoples tents and generally running riot around the camp site can land you in hot water.
  • If however you’d of brought along a tentfinder light you’d find your tent in no time.
  • With the tentfinder light you can turn the lights on from 50 metres away, one click using the remote illumiates the 3 centre LED’s, a second click illuminates the outer 20 bulbs and a third click, (if you dare) illuinates all of the lights.

As the saying goes, ‘theres light at the end of the tunnel’, well…with this awesome camping gadget all you need to do is give the remote a cheeky click  and you can follow the light. If only they made something similar for cars!

Style and communications never looked so good with these walkie talkie watches

Apart from being totally awesome, Walkie Talkies are free to use. The major annoyance however is that conventional walkie talkies have to be carried around or stuffed into your pocket.

 Getting lost is a thing of the past

gps keyring

This ECCO GPS Keyring from the handsome guys at Firebox is a revolutionary gadget, if only it had been invented when we got lost in Glastonbury and instead of sleeping in our tent we had to kip on the muddy floor. With this GPS keyring you set your starting point, i.e. your tent (or even your car) go do your thing, and then simply follow the instructions (i.e the arrow) on the ingenious gadget to get you back safe and sound. It’s simple to use, has a great battery that lasts a month on standby, and has no extra subscription costs. It’s charged via USB, will find your location in 30-60 seconds and accurate to within 10 meters. Our favorite feature however is that you can lock in 3 separate locations, so if you are headed to a festival this summer then your first locked location could be the car (as finding the car in among the thousands of others can be challenging enough after a hefty weekend of boozing and dancing) and then your second locked location could be the tent (so that finding it when your drunk and it’s dark is a doddle) your third location then could be the tasty burger stand called something like ‘Tasty Joes’ or ‘Debs Burgers’ for example. If only it was that easy when we were young and carefree.

What we don’t like about the Garmin Dakota 10

The Garmin Dakota 10 Handeld GPS generally works very well and is highly regarded as a great GPS among everyone in the office, the one criticism is that you can’t read the time off the GPS, a minor issue but one we’d like to see in future versions.
