Travel, Electronics, and iPhone Chargers

Hey neighbors!

As you all should know by now we are traveling again. I love to travel, but it does often make it difficult to keep everything charged and usable. You know, between plugging in laptops for charging, cameras, because of course we are taking loads of pictures, and then the iPhone Charger or iPods. I mean with a family of eight on the road we carry so many portable electronics it isn't funny. Each person has a laptop and then an iPad, iPod, or MP3 player. We almost have to have a trailer for just the electronics:)

For example last night we stayed in a prophet's chamber at a church. For those who don't know what a Prophet's Chamber is, this is an area the church has set up where traveling preachers or missionaries can stay overnight. This one was set up in the basement of the church where they have 3 bedrooms, a kitchen and a dining area. The problem was we have so many electronics that my husband forgot to charge his computer. So he thought he would just plug in when we went to breakfast. Guess what? No outlets where we ate. So now his computer is dead until we check in tonight. What an inconvenience.

It would be so helpful to have a way to charge all these items as we travel staying in campgrounds. We also camp throughout the year using tents and when we tent you usually only have two outlets. This definitely makes homeschooling difficult when they each work on their individual laptops. Not to mention charging phones and anything else we might need to plug in. We have actually considered purchasing some sort of portable energy supply system, like solar based, or a charger of sorts that could be charged up and then used as an extra power supply while camping. This would be perfect!

Do any of my neighbors have a solution? I am open to any feasible ideas. It would be great to not having to worry about keeping everything charged on our trips. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

This is a sponsored post for Goal Zero, however, all the points and views are my own.

We traveled this summer with a small power strip so that we could plug in all of the charging cords when we stopped for the night. I'll have to look for a picture somewhere. I think we managed to charge at least one laptop, two portable DVDs, 2 or 3 iPods, and a couple of phones most nights.
