1. Tire Inflator

Longer road trips wear your tires down something fierce, if you have driven for any period, you must have noticed your dashboard at some point to see a warning light indicating one or more tires with low pressure. If this stays on for a while, it is time act fast to check the tires. There are two options - either pay for it at the gas station or grab a dependable tire inflator and fix it in a jiffy.

Fanttik’s X8 Apex is a great option for a few reasons. Aside from being palm-size, it takes mere minutes to pump most tires – in some cases, as little as 90 seconds. This is important, as the last thing you want is to be caught in bad weather inflating a flat tire for too long. Thankfully, this thing delivers inflation speeds that are up to 45% faster than other inflators on the market today with up to 150 pounds per square inch at maximum pressure. 

It’s also entirely cordless, running off a built-in 7,800 mAh battery pack that’s capable of inflating more than six tires on a single charge. For being only 1.2 pounds, that’s a ton of power in a small package that fits in your pocket. This makes the X8 Apex not only perfect for car owners, it’s the perfect companion for motorcyclists who don’t have much storage space on the go.

5. Power Station

A portable power generator is an absolute must for the road these days. Whether it’s a mobile phone, a laptop, or even just a small appliance you bring along for the ride, the EVO 300 Power Station is a solid choice to go with for a few reasons. 

A large 7-inch LCD screen displays must know info in a clear and concise way, including the remaining charge, power usage details, and even environmental conditions. All critical information when it comes to charging your sensitive electronics.

Built with 9 AC and DC power outputs, the EVO 300 can provide power for multiple devices at the same time. Your iPhone running low on battery? It can charge it while powering other devices such as fans, smart speakers, and even car refrigerators. Delivering 300 watts of pure sine wave power and 600 watts of surge power, it’s hard to find a better power station that works so well for road trips, camping, hunting, you name it.
