We've got some great products for your next camping trip. A decent torch is a camping essential if you want to stay lit, then the Goal Zero torch 500 flashlight is a fabulous option, especially as it can be used as a lantern, a flashlight, and can even charge your phone.

If you can't face the day without a java jolt, consider investing in Wacaco Minipresso GR. It's the perfect coffee maker for camping as it can rustle you up a shot of espresso without requiring any electricity or batteries, thanks to its pump-action design.

Finally, a clever gizmo that can entertain you as well as illuminate you is the RunningSnail MD-088s radio. As well as providing you with NOAA Weather reports, it has a useful built-in flashlight, and if its power runs low, it can be charged by a hand crank.
