Bay Area naturalist John Muir once advised a disciple: “Break clear away, once in awhile, and spend a week in the woods.”
Good advice in 1915.
But a century later, we don’t mind a little help bridging the gap between off-grid and on.
Like some efficient, powerful camp lights that’ll also charge our favorite USB devices — aka the new NanoGrid rechargeable light pack from BioLite.
But let’s be real. Lose the compass, and nobody’s going to complain about using your phone’s GPS — now fully powered up thanks to the Nano, which also includes two small but bright SiteLights you can string along for 20 extra feet of illumination.
It also includes a lantern-style PowerLight that provides up to 200 lumens of light in 360-degree mode (what’s mood lighting back home is plenty bright in the woods).
The Nano’s also dimmable and features a strobe light. For “emergencies.”
As for keeping you on the grid: it’ll power “3.5 GoPros, three phones, or run the light for up to 72 hours.”
Because some habits are hard to break, Sr. Muir.
