For many, camping is about hitting the open road, exploring undiscovered lands and getting away from it all. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to find electric hook up points that far out.

Consider this, you're on your campervan holiday and you head out for a walk. Wandering in awe of mother nature's sights you make a wrong turn, venturing down a path and off the beaten track. Noting that you can't remember the way home you go to check your phone, and to your horror, you find out it has ran out of battery... ...Fortunately that is no problem providing you have your trusty Freeloadeer solar charger. It's also handy for GPS devices so you can walk wherever you want without fear of getting lost.
