Best gadgets for enjoying the outdoors

Summer has finally arrived, and if you’re looking to make the most of the good weather, you’ll want to be outside as often as possible. We’ve got the best gadgets available to help you enjoy the outdoors.

For those late nights…Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry Rechargeable Lantern

You might not like it, but whether you’re camping, hanging out in your garden, or you’re halfway up a mountain, the sun is going to go down eventually. Luckily, when it does, you can get the Princeton Tec Helix Backcountry Rechargeable Lantern out.

This lantern isn’t winning any awards for a snappy name, but it does take the biscuit for a great, dependable light source. Not only does it collapse in on itself, so you don’t need to fill your camping rucksack with a bulky light, it’s dimmable, it lasts for up to 18 hours, and it has a red LED mode to keep those flies away. 

To keep the party going…Sonos Roam Speaker

Bluetooth speakers, historically speaking, have been synonymous with terrible sound quality. The last thing you’re wanting when you’re enjoying the sunshine is music that sounds like it’s being amplified through a rubbish bin. Luckily, the Sonos Roam has changed all that.

This speaker has the sound quality that you’ve been looking for - without requiring you to stop your walk every twenty minutes, because your arms are getting tired from carrying the thing. It’s waterproof, drop resistant with a 10 hour battery life, so that you know your tunes will keep going at least as long as you do.

To cool you down…evaCHILL

If you live in the UK, you know that there’s a fine line between ‘Summer’s finally here’ and ‘It’s officially too hot’. We don’t like to complain about warm weather, but the majority of us don’t have air conditioning and routinely forget that 26 degrees is unpleasant, not enjoyable.

The evaCHILL is a personal air cooler. It’s portable, which means you can carry it to any excessively warm location. It creates less than 50 DB of noise which means having it running whilst you’re asleep is no issue, and can bring the temperature down significantly for between 3 and 8 hours, depending on the setting. 

For when you can’t get signal…goTenna Mesh

You’re out in the great outdoors, exploring the wilderness, or having a blast at a festival, and you realise you’ve lost your friend. You go to text them, and realise you have no signal. You have no idea where they are/where you are/where either of you are. What do you do?

Of course, this would never happen, because before you head somewhere with patchy Wi-Fi you’ll have picked up a goTenna Mesh. This clever little device pairs with your smartphone and allows you to send texts and GPS locations without the need for signal or Wi-Fi. 

For when you forget to put these on charge…JIGA Wireless Power Bank

If you’re taking a lot of tech with you this summer, at some point you’ll realise that something you’re depending on is out of battery. Either the party will be over, or you’ll reach into your bag and pull out a powerbank, and the party will keep on going.

The JIGA Wireless Power Bank might be bulky, but there’s a reason it’s our pick of the bunch. This is a 30,000 mAH battery pack, which means you can fill it and forget about it for the rest of your adventure. You can also charge five devices simultaneously, and it includes wireless charging, so you can cover for the person that left their phone charger at home.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
