Over the past few months we have been having a lot of fun testing out camping gadgets. All of them have been functional. However, some are much more practical than others. Although this particular item isn’t the most practical, it has by far been the most fun! It’s a shocking good time, and we mean it!

 

Quite a Shock

Introducing the SUPRUS USB Lighter Arc Lighter Rechargeable Flameless Double Safety Coil Lighter Windproof Perfect for Candle Gas Stove Camping BBQ Party Gift Box. This thing is so much fun to use. Yes, we realize that matches or a standard butane lighter are much more practical. But at the end of the day if you are having a leisure camping trip with friends, this thing will be the talk of the evening. Everyone is going to want to light the campfire. If you have kids and want to put them to work, tell them that they case use the arc light but only if they build the fire too. It’s a win-win for everyone.

The Specs

It can be hard to appreciate this thing unless you have tried one for yourself. However, here are a few of the standard details just in case.

  • SAVING MONEY: Unlike torch lighter that uses butane fuel lighter refill gas. You don’t need to pay extra money to buy lighter fluid. Arc lighters are powered by rechargeable batteries.
  • SUITABLE FOR VARIOUS OCCASIONS: Long neck is ideal for lighting a candle in a jar, gas stoves, hot barbecue, and more without fear of burn.Arc lighter also can be used as utility lighter, cigarette lighter, cigar lighter. Perfect for lighting lanterns, candles, stoves, fireplaces.
  • SAFE TO USE: Child-Resistant Slide-Out Tip Design to conceal the switch when not in use. When ready to light, slide out the tip and press the activation button. If heating time is too long Automatically Power-Off System will cut off the power.
  • USB RECHARGEABLE (CORD INCLUDED): You can charge Candle Lighter with a Standard Micro USB cable in any powered USB port. 1-1.5 hour fully charged. Lighter can be used more than 1000 times per charge. Battery can be charged more than 500 times.

The Perfect Companion

A great item to use in conjunction with the SUPRUS USB Arc Light is the Hiluckey Solar Power Bank. Charge your arc light, cell phone, and other USB supported accessories with the power of the sun! This lightweight solar charger is a must for every adventurer! Read more here!

Blog intended for those 21 and over. Blog contains links to our affiliate program partner.

Camping is great, and beer is good. Almost sounds like the forgotten lyrics of a Billy Currington song. We at iCampSavvy obviously love to camp. We are also based in southern California, currently the micro brew capitol of the world. When you combine camping and beer together (in a safe manner) it is a beautiful thing. We have been having fun trying lots of gizmos and gadgets when we camp. Some are practical and some are not. Regardless, they have all been a blast. One of our most favorite, and to be honest impractical, has been the StarBright Cooler Light. On your next camping adventure, don’t aimlessly dig around your cooler at night to find your next beer. Let the StarBright Cooler Light guide your way.

 

Why Not?

Of course you can use a flashlight and try to dig around in your cooler at night for your next beer, but where’s the fun in that? We like to be practical, that’s for sure, but it’s important to have some fun along the way. This is especially the case if it is at an affordable rate. In addition to that, we also enjoy showing it off to our friends and getting a reaction out of them. The StarBight Cooler Light has helped us achieve all of the above.

 

The Specs
  • NO MOUNTING REQUIRED: Turn it on and toss it in! DOES NOT have to be permanently attach to the inside of your cooler like other cooler lights.
  • WATERPROOF IN UP TO 6 FEET OF WATER: The StarBright Cooler light is waterproof up to 6 feet and can last up to 48 hours submerged in your cooler on the energy saving setting. Place it in beneath, inside or on top of the ice.
  • WHITE LIGHT AND RED LIGHT: Cooler light will also has two color options: White light and red light. Red light is great if you are fishing, hunting or for any other outdoor activity where you want to maintain your night vision.
  • RECHARGEABLE, NO BATTERIES REQUIRED: One charge can provide up to 60 hours of white light and up to 31 hours of red light. An LED light indicates the power level and if the lamp needs to be recharged.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE: The light can be fully recharged in approximately 5 hours. It can be charged from most USB power sources. An LED light indicates the power level and if the lamp needs to be recharged. The cooler light utilizes long life LEDs that are rated for over 36,000 hours of use.

Go Camp And Drink Beer (Safely)

We encourage you to try the StarBright Cooler Light the next time you go camping! Find your next campsite through the iCampSavvyapp, available on iOSor Android. New campsites are popping up all the time, so be sure to check regularly for your next perfect campsite. If you are looking to earn some extra income, signup to become a campsite host on iCampSavvy.

One of the easiest ways to keep track of all of your camping supplies is to organize them in clear plastic totes. When you are ready to hit the road, all you have to do is grab them and throw them back into the car. When you are at camp, you can easily see inside of them without having to open the lid and go rummaging through. There is one thing that every camping tote needs at least one of, and that’s a solid camping flashlight.

 

Types of Lights

There are so many options to choose from when it comes to camping and flashlights. Each light has a specific purpose and some work better than others depending on the application. For example, a lantern works great back at camp because they put out so much light all around. However, they are a bit clunky when trying to carry them around. Headlamps are a great option as well because they allow you to use your hands. However, the light only shines where you turn your head. Even owls are impressed with all the head turning. Sometimes its best to go back to basics, and that is with a traditional handheld flashlight.

 

Old School Handheld Flashlight

Sometimes just carrying around an old school hand held flashlight is the best option around. They put out a tremendous amount of light, come in a variety of sizes, and can be very inexpensive but still decent quality. After testing a multitude of handheld flashlights over the years, one of our favorites is the GearLight LED Tactical Flashlight . There are a few reasons why this brand takes to head of the pack.

The Great Outdoors

We encourage you to bring your GearLight on your next camping adventure! Keep them in your camping tote, emergency kit, and in your car. They come in handy more often than you realize. After you are done finding your way through the dark, find your next campsite through the iCampSavvy app, available on iOS or Android. New campsites are popping up all the time, so be sure to check regularly for your next perfect campsite. If you are looking to earn some extra income, signup to become a campsite host on iCampSavvy.

It’s amazing to think how much we have advanced over the past few decades as a planet. From a technological perspective, new and revolutionary products are being introduced to the general public at an outstanding rate. Arguably one of the most important and impactful products has been the cell phone. Although the concept of a wireless phone has existed over 100 years, it wasn’t until 1973 when the first successful cellphone call was made.

 

Then and Now

Original cell phones were quite large. Some of them easily weighed a few pounds and were far from compact. It wasn’t until the 1990s did cellphones begin to shrink and morph into a shape more aligned with what we see today. In 2007, with the introduction of Apple’s iPhone, cellphones were never the same again. Phones, now smartphones, were becoming more powerful and sophisticated at an exponential rate. The concept of “apps” and the utility they brought users quickly turned into a multi-billion dollar industry. Before long, there was an app for pretty much everything, including camping!

 

America Runs on Solar

Ok, so maybe more Americans still run on Dunkin Donuts, but solar has found its way into many aspects of our every day lives. When out exploring the great outdoors, finding an outlet can obviously be a challenge. And as a safety measure, it is always a good idea to bring your cellphone along just incase. Unfortunately, sometimes things happen. Even the most experienced hikers can get lost. Finding a cell signal can quickly drain your battery and turn your cellphone into a paperweight. This is when a solar charger is here to save the day.

Hiluckey Solar Power Bank

Introducing the Hiluckey Solar Power Bank. Solar Charger, Hiluckey Solar Power Bank 10000mAh Waterproof / Shockproof Portable External Battery Pack with Dual USB for Camping, Travelling and other Outdoor Activities. This lightweight solar charger is a must for every adventurer.
