After I charged my phone, packed my camera, checked whether I had extra batteries, filled my water cans, changed my clothes, tied my sneakers, checked when the sun was going to set and how hot the day it was going to be, I also got a bug spray. Since my safety is my own responsibility, I will need to make sure I have the required knowledge and gear to ensure no harm comes to me.

Hikers and backpackers will tell you that spending some time communing with nature can help you to relax and at the same time put your world in perspective.

I wanted to make sure I really got prepared for the hike, which was the main reason I made a list the necessary items that are truly essential for any hiking trip. But after all that work, it really got me thinking about how all of these different items can help me achieve a stress-free hike in a developing country, even if they serve the same purpose but have different individual uses.


Outdoor activities can cause serious accidents, a flashlight or phone may be the only way to get emergency treatment that you or a friend or family member requires.

Keeping your battery charged may not be the easiest thing to do when you are away from civilization (and outlets) for days at a time. So what are the solutions to ensure that you never run out of battery cell phone while you enjoy your outdoor adventure?

Solar power chargers have increased in popularity in recent years. By harnessing the energy from the sun, this energy is converted to essential power, which is what the portable solar charger offers to those hiking or camping where there is no electricity to take advantage of.


As I went out for my hike, I made use of my Nokero solar flashlight N400s. This flashlight is one of the products that have been designed to efficiently charge, whether behind a glass plate or under direct sunlight.

I also made use of the Nokero N222 solar cell phone charger in Colorado while hiking. This portable solar charger does not need kerosene, it is robust and reliable and can be used anywhere, at any time. It does not have to be used for hiking. You can use it at home or in your car, to make sure you always have a fully charged battery using only renewable energy, thereby reducing your carbon footprint. I love this gadget!

On your Next Adventure Colorado Vacation, take charge of powering your cell phones or other small electrical devices with solar power!

So grab your backpack or solar charger on your next adventure backpacking Colorado, where the trails are waiting for you and so is all the scenery that Colorado has to offer. Once you take in the Colorado scenery for just one day you will never want to return to the city ever again.
