How will I recharge my iPhone for my upcoming PCT trip? I plan to use the phone as camera and GPS (in conjunction with paper maps) to save weight. But as a weekend backpacker who has always used paper maps and a separate camera on the trail, I felt like I had a lot to learn.
Several knowledgeable friends have been helping me out. They shared which batteries or solar chargers that they use and the pros and cons of different systems. Leave it to an electrical engineer to give me this answer:
|Ask the time of day, learn to build a clock. Special thanks to Peter for this one.|
|Learning to use the iphone as a GPS, with a lot of help.|
|Trying out the new iphone photo app and HDR functions recommended by another friend.|
