Five Glorious Uses for a Generator on Your Next Camping Trip

We love getting outdoors and making the most of the Australian outback, beaches, and nature. Camping is a fantastic way to experience the true beauty of a place and to explore somewhere off the beaten track with your family. And while there’s a lot to be said for going truly ‘bush’ there are some times when it’s appropriate – even needed – to bring along a generator to power things up a little.

You might be travelling with your kids and want the extra power for some lights, or you might be heading out for a weekend with the boys or girls and want to be able to keep the tunes going all weekend long. Whatever your reason, these are five glorious ways in which you will be glad you brought the generator!


Keep the Batteries Charged

While camping is definitely a time to disconnect from the iPhones and to switch off from technology, there is something to be said for keeping your device charged, especially if you are in a remote area and may need to contact someone at some point.

You can use your device without any fear of being left high and dry, which means you can take it with you for walks and snap photos to your heart’s content without having to worry about draining the battery completely.


Light the Way

Campsites can get pretty dark at night, and as dusk falls and you are still cooking dinner, it can be helpful to have a generator with a couple of light burning just to keep things safe. If you’ve got young children it’s important to have a well lit campsite, so make sure you consider a generator for safety.

Once your dinner is all cooked and eaten, and the dishes washed and drying, you can turn the generator off and kick back to look up at the stars. A perfect end to a perfect day.


Pump the Tunes

If you’re heading out on the weekend with your friends, it can be great to have the tunes going all day and night – and a generator is a great way to make sure that you never run out of battery.

Just make sure that you’re keeping the volume respectful if there are other campers around.


Enjoy a Little Bit of Luxury

Sometimes it’s nice to camp and to cook over a fire, and sometimes it’s nice to have an espresso in the middle of nowhere. With a generator, you will have access to all the comforts of home without having to compromise.

If you have a particular penchant for coffee just how you like it, or if you’d like to whip up a bunch of frozen margaritas around the campsite at dusk, a generator will get you there.


Stay Connected

Safety is a priority when you’re camping, and while it is important to unplug, it’s also vital to ensure that you are staying connected with essential devices. This might be your camera for a special walk, or it might be a mobile phone that you want to keep charged. Either way, if you have a particular device that you really need charged, a generator is a great way to ensure you’re safe. Also, you can use a generator to jump start your car if you get stuck there as well – so generators really are multi-use.
