explore TAMING THE WILD ★ Here's what you need to be a savvy camper. By Lynn Coulter Smart Heat You've earned a hot meal after a long day on the trail. Stoke up a fire and boil some water with the PowerPot V. While you recharge on cooked noodles, recharge your GPS, smartphone, or other mobile device with the pot's 5-volt, USB port. A flame-resistant cable and connector resist meltdowns, and the hard-anodized aluminum body is hand-washable. Bonus: If the power goes out at home, use this lightweight pot, which works like a thermoelectric genrator, on the stovetop. The lid doubles as a bowl or small frying pan. $149 Save Your Breath 50 Picture This When you can't get a campfire going, you need a Boy Scout. If you can't find a Boy Scout, try the BBQ Dragon. The Dragon's low-velocity, variable-speed fan shoots oxygen directly onto charcoal or wood to start fires quickly - but it won't blow ashes around. A spring-loaded clamp holds the Dragon on a grill or other surface. Use it on smokers, fire pits, fireplaces, and wood stoves, and forget the huffing and puffing. Connect a home or car charger to the Dragon's micro-USB port when you need to recharge the optional NiMh batteries. Recharge Kit, $50 ; BBQ Dragon, $30 Whether you're using time-lapse photography to film the night sky or zooming in on an alpine flower, a steady focus is essential for sharp images. MeFOTO's SideKick360 supports most smartphones. A 360-degree rotating balljoint lets you shoot vertically, horizontally, or in between, and an attachment on the base mounts the SideKick360 to a tripod. It's available in 12 colors, along with matching tripods in a range of sizes and weights, from DayTrip to the Backpacker, RoadTrip, and GlobeTrotter. Or opt for the WalkAbout monopod, which doubles as a walking stick. SideKick360, $49 ; Tripods, $119 and up ; WalkAbout, $59 JUNE 2014
