In order to keep in contact with friends and family, update the website, archive and upload photos, reload music players, we carry the following electronic components with us. The goal has always been consolidation, and we’re always on the look out for shock proof, water resistant tools that have good warranties. Mountain Equipment Co-op offers a life time warranty on everything that it sells, so we have tried to use them whenever possible. The worst part of the mass of electronics is the fact that we have to charge each component and some of them come with their own proprietary charging connectors. With the use of a solar panel and battery backup, we’ve attempted to standardize on USB charging. It takes a while to get things fully charged, but we figured since we are riding anyways, we should get some benefit out of it, saving trying to find plugs whenever we reach a campground or a restaurant.
