The best kit for your summer in the British countryside
As summer approaches, the urge to migrate to the countryside becomes greater. Whether you’re after a quiet trip away with the family or a raucous festival adventure, the British countryside has something for everyone. But what’s life without a little tech? Here are my top picks for gadgets and accessories to bring your home comforts with you.
An essential piece of kit, wherever you are, MP3 players are the perfect portable solution to keeping all of your music with you without lugging about hundreds of CDs. Dominated by Apple’s range of iPods, they come in all shapes and sizes, from an iPod Classic for the extensive collector to the Shuffle for the more adventurous listener, there really is an iPod for everyone.
We all need some ‘me time’ at one point or another, so why not spend it with a good book? Like an MP3 player, but for books, eReaders are great for keeping an entire library’s worth of your favourite books on one palm-sized device.
After your holiday’s over, all you’re left with is memories. But why leave it at that?! Capture those special moments on a camera or camcorder and relive them at your will. We do a great range of tough and waterproof cameras and camcorders that are designed for holidaying in the elements, so whether you’re camping in the rain or dancing at a festival, we have the perfect camera for your needs.
A tablet is the ultimate portable entertainment device. In the last few years they’ve transformed from niche business appliance to all singing, all dancing must-have equipment. So whether you’re desperate to get on the internet without a Wi-Fi connection or you want something tough that can take on nature, you’ll be able to find your answer with us.
So now you have your tech, how about some accessories to go with it?
Portable wireless speaker
What good’s music without any way to share it? Portable wireless speakers were built for this very purpose. Stream music directly from your iPod, smartphone or tablet and let everyone else join in the fun.
Away from civilisation and your phone dies? It’s not a disaster if you have an emergency charge from the likes of Juice and Mophie. These ingenious items use their own batteries to repower your technology, so you won’t be without power for too long.
After spending your hard earned money on all of this tech, it would be a disaster to lose them to water or shock damage. Cases from LifeProof and Optrix will keep your smartphone and tablet safe from varying levels of water and drops, so there’s no need to worry about an accident ruining your holiday.
