Portable chargers and gadgets for the festival season

The festival season is just around the corner, so we wanted to share some of the best chargers and gadgets for music events, camping trips, or just for use out in the summer sun.
The tech we feature in this article is affordable and will last you a good few summers. On top of that, it can all be purchased through Techscheme for up to 12% off the prices listed, so make sure to stop by our pricing table at the end of the article.

Juice Long Weekender Portable Power Bank - £29.99

Juice Long Weekender Portable Power Bank

The name explains this portable power bank perfectly. The Juice Long Weekender gives you enough juice to get through a long weekend. You get a total of 10,500 mAh on a full charge, which will give you about 3 to 4 full smartphone charges, depending on how large your smartphone battery is.
You can also charge up to two devices at once. The dual charging feature makes the Long Weekender a perfect choice if you’ve got any friends that desperately need some extra battery on the go. Digital LEDs are included to show you how much battery is left and the entire charger is covered in an anti-slip coating to keep it firmly in your hands.

PNY Slim 20000 Portable Power Bank - £34.99

PNY Slim 20000 Portable Power Bank

If 10,000 mAh isn’t enough for you, the PNY Slim 20000 power bank may be an alternative option. This has 20,000mAh which means you can get 7 to 8 charges out of a full battery. There are LED indicators on the top to tell you how much juice is left.
This is a slimline power pack, so it’s smaller than some 20,000 mAh batteries out there, but be warned, this thing has a lot of weight to it. The battery takes up quite a lot of space so make sure you have a bag to put it in to keep it safe. This portable charger can also support up to 2 devices being charged simultaneously.

JVC portable wireless speaker - £22.99


Maybe you aren’t planning to go to any music events this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring music to your own outdoor events. This JVC portable wireless speaker costs under £25 and it has a huge 8 hour battery life. If you start to run low, you can always charge it via USB with the portable chargers we listed above, too.
On the inside, this JVC portable wireless speaker actually has two different speakers driving the sound, which allows for a crisp, decent sounding volume despite the cheaper price. There are better options for more money, but it’s certainly a more affordable option.

JBL Xtreme 2 - £199 - Was £279


If you feel like splashing out extra for the ultimate outdoor music experience, the JBL Xtreme 2 is a great choice. It’s also available for £80 off right now, and even more off through Techscheme.
The JBL Xtreme 2 is highly rated for some incredible sound ranges, some punchy bass, and all around a great listening experience. The JBL Xtreme 2 is waterproof, durable, and you can even pair multiple speakers together for even more powerful sound. You can also have two devices connected to the speaker at once to make it easier to create an ongoing playlist throughout the day, or two days, because the JBL Xtreme 2 has a beefy 15 hour battery life.

Tile Mate Bluetooth Tracker - £17.99

Tile Mate Bluetooth Tracker

Want to make sure you don’t lose your phone, keys, wallet, or other valuable things at a festival? With the Tile Mate Bluetooth Tracker, you can track the location of your items by playing an audible sound when within Bluetooth range.
You can even use it to tag your friends so that you can keep an eye on each other’s location. For under £20, and even less through Techscheme, there’s no harm picking up a few for the upcoming festival season this year.
