It can be hard to find a cooler that is tough, portable, and versatile enough for all of your outdoor endeavors — whether you’re camping with friends or setting out on a day hike through the woods. The coolers designed to keep your beverages and food cold enough to last the day are usually too bulky for transport but Otterbox developed an ideal solution. The company’s new line of Trooper Soft Coolers is rugged, versatile, and offers quality insulation for food and beverages while on the go.

Otterbox implemented a soft-shell design, making the Trooper coolers light enough to carry with you to sporting events, camping trips, road trips, and overnight expeditions. Trooper keeps ice cold for 72 hours — longer than the average norm of comparable, portable products. The solid bottom frame provides protection where it’s needed most and a wide, open mouth makes for easy packability.

gosun new portable power stations gets you through outages power550 hero

GoSun's diverse lineup of solar-friendly products is expanding this week with two new portable power stations. The GoSun Power 550 and Power 1,100 are high-capacity batteries designed to help keep your appliances running when off the grid, whether that's due to an outage or being on a camping trip. Much like its other eco-friendly devices, these portable power stations can be charged using solar panels.

These portable power stations have plenty of power output options, including a 600-watt AC, a 1,000W AC, USB-A with QuickCharge 3.0, two 5V 2.4A USB-A plugs, a 60W USB-C plug, and a 12.3V DC. For charging, they use a 12-24V adapter, 18-24V input for solar, or 12V if you're charging it from the car.  Both AC outlets are pure sine wave, meaning your electronics get a more consistent feed of power. That's good news for your phones and laptops. It also has a Maximum Power Point Controller (MPPT) built-in, which helps to optimize the gain from solar panels. Other batteries lose a lot of efficiency on this front.
