6 Gadgets for Beer-Loving Campers

For some, camping is about experiencing the great outdoors, going on hikes, “roughing it” and spending quality time with family and friends. For others, it’s the perfect excuse to do nothing but sit back and drink beer all day long. That being said, here are a few gadgets that we think will aid in the drinking, the drunk and the hangover.

1. A Portable Mini-Keg Dispenser

Coolers full of beer are nice, but ice packs go warm and often the cans do too. Besides, there’s nothing better than drinking draft. While there are many keg dispensers on the market, we decided to go with the Avanti 5L Mini Beer Keg as it’s designed to be portable, it holds camping-perfect 5L mini-kegs, and can be easily hooked up to any portable camping generator. Beers ahoy!

Cart Generates Electricity While You Shop

From the “Why have we not thought of this already?” question bag, the smart guys over at RedDot Online have put together a very impressive concept for a shopping cart which generates energy as you shop your local supermarket or retail store.

It’s called the e~cart and works very simply. As you push your shopping cart along gathering all your delicious food stuffs, the wheels generate and store energy. Once you’ve finished your trip, you place the cart back in it’s dock which has a device to extract the energy and store it. The power generated by all the shop’s patrons then can be used to power the store itself.

As e~cart is pushed around the store, it generates electrical energy from the kinetic energy of its moving wheels. When it is docked at a trolley deposit point, the power is collected and charged into a storage unit. A bank of deposited trolleys creates a chain so that the electrical energy flows through them to the storage unit. The store uses the stored electrical energy for its normal operations, generating savings on its electricity bills. The amount of money saved is donated to those less fortunate. Undoubtedly, customers will feel proud that they are helping those in need, and will feel encouraged to return to the store.
