Battery Operated Space Heater for Camping

Although the battery operated portable heater that many folk seek out might disappoint, there are options that will do the job intended very well.

For example there are outdoor types using hand and body heaters and are very happy how they perform at keeping them nice and warm. Even battery powered coffee heaters can be great at doing what they claim to do.

Space heaters can be the biggest disappointing types purely due to technology not being advanced that far yet. However you might find the XPower Powerpack 1500 very useful.

Best Rated Portable Car Heater

Funny how you just take things for granted. This is what I found while researching for what the best portable car heater was. My friend had asked me the question and I thought, no problem I will have the answer in a day or so.

I had never thought how difficult it would be to attempt to heat up a car with just a 12 volt battery. I should just have stopped and thought out the question better.

Anyway all was not lost during this pretty fruitless research as I did come up with a couple of ideas, such as a good car heater for food, a heated travel blanket and a car seat heater to provide winter comfort.

Collapsible Snow Shovel for Car Trunk

Without doubt, a snow shovel for car driving in wintery conditions simply makes sense. Having it tucked away in the trunk for an unforeseen emergency such as being stuck in heavy snow will prove a blessing.

Nowadays we can find versions that are compact and collapsible although care must be taken when buying to ensure that they are strong enough for the task and won’t break easily.

Aluminum is an ideal material being light and strong enough for moving snow. Check out the selection on this post from companies like Garant and Seymour.
