Social media and a strong online presence are more critical than ever for outdoor companies or brands, as well as individual hunters, hikers, anglers, and other outdoorsmen who are dedicated to bringing their passion for the great outdoors to millions of interested people online.
There are more opportunities to reach people than ever no matter what the size of the company or even if you're a solo outdoor enthusiast wanting to share your outdoor adventures with friends, family, and followers. However, because of photography drones, digital cameras that put past cameras to shame, exceptional Go Pros, and even smartphone cameras that become more and more impressive every year, the need for truly exceptional and original pictures and videos is larger than ever.
Portable Power Stations: Power in the Most Remote Locations
Pictures or videos of the most remote and beautiful natural areas were often few and far between, and mostly came from professional crews backed by TV or large corporations because getting reliable gear and the support you needed to those places was beyond your average budget – even for all but the most enthusiastic of hikers, hunters, anglers, or other outdoor enthusiasts.
This is the age of the online influencer. That means drone shots of the PCT, digital photos & videos of truly isolated hunting camps, and many thousands of individuals who can build an entire career on building a following of outdoor lovers waiting for the next picture, the next video, the next product pitch.
Mediocre stock footage doesn't work anymore. With so many great photos and videos already out there, it takes tools and effort to stay on top because if one photographer or outdoor video specialist won't do their best, another will go that extra mile.
This means they need high tech equipment, and they need those smartphones, Go Pros, GPS systems, photography drones, lights, and other equipment to stay charged at a moment's notice even when many miles away from the nearest building or outlet.
This is where the Bold North portable outdoor power station comes into play.
Portable Power Stations Are a Necessity
These aren't just an extra little toy or neat new gadget. Gone are the days where a company, large or small, can put a full color ad in a magazine and sit back and wait for the orders to come in. Online is where all the eyes are, and that means having your own powerful online presence or teaming up with those who do.
Outdoors influencers are playing a bigger part of the online advertising world than ever, because it's so effective. There are far more eyes on YouTube, Pinterest, Facebook, Google, or other popular online sites than regular TV – and even outdoor TV needs to get those shots to reach their audience.
The future of outdoor media & advertising is already here, and new demands means new gear is needed. When someone asks, "How do we keep our phones charged outdoors?" the portable power station is the answer. When someone needs to know how to make sure the GoPro is ready for those unexpected but perfect moments in nature, that's where the reliable portable power station comes in.
While still one of the best pieces of gear for isolated long-term camps, and a practical solution to important things like making sure the hunters needing GPS to navigate incredibly thick forests don't have to worry, these are the only practical and reliable solution for keeping increasingly high-tech cameras, recorders, and drones powered on trips that can take days or weeks away from any reliable conventional power source.
Perfect for All Levels of Outdoor Influencers & Outdoor Celebrities
Power2Go by Bold North Outdoors was designed specifically to be an off the grid power solution. The quality of design and construction comes from being designed, tested, re-worked, re-designed, and re-tested until it could deliver in the field for a wide range of potentially difficult situations.
Small companies who need to show their gear out in the field? This will work for all of their off the grid energy needs to keep the shoots going. Individual outdoor influencers needing more content for their YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook account? These portable power stations make sure a sudden low battery warning doesn't put the entire day-off track.
Larger established companies and established outdoor TV shows? These are a perfect backup for equipment that isn't always going to play nice a four-hour flight from civilization, in the middle of thick forests, or during winter's coldest days.
Whatever the specific needs, this portable power station is one that has been designed by people who know what they need, know the challenges that you face when outdoors, and understand intimately what can go wrong. When you're working off that type of knowledge, you end up with a truly useful and remarkable portable power station that really is made for specific outdoor needs.
Designed to Take on the Great Outdoors
Power2Go by Bold North Outdoors was designed specifically to be an off the grid power solution. No more need for multiple power sources for multiple chargers. The outer case repels water and keeps the battery ready to charge up no matter what the weather.
The case is easy to carry, offers mounts that specifically work with Go-Pro or Ram accessories, and multiple designs means being able to customize even further to your specific needs whether that means different batteries, mounts, or if you're watching weight.
Up to Situationally Specific Outdoor Challenges
Having a portable source of power is one of the unspoken needs that many outdoor influencers have, in addition to plenty of hunters or anglers who simply wanted to be able to record the best parts of their experiences.
Often times a battery would run out and then that was it. There was nothing else that could be recorded or done, although with an old-fashioned camera you might get some pictures – but nothing near the quality of what's expected today with digital technology.
Having that portable battery to recharge your cameras of choice is crucial to make sure none of the magical moments of any outdoor adventure are missed.
These portable power stations are especially crucial when trying to tackle an outdoor project that is:
· Particularly large, isolated, and time consuming or
· During an especially cold winter
The explosion of YouTube videos on thru hiking the Pacific Crest Trail or Appalachian Trail show how much has changed and how reliant on technology many influencers are as the demand for content from beautiful, breathtaking, and really isolated areas are through the roof.
The second should be pretty self-explanatory to anyone who has ever had to take a phone call during winter in any northern climate. That hour or two-hour battery suddenly doesn't last fifteen minutes.
Long-term winter hunt or ice fishing experience you want to film? Better have that outdoor power station ready to go!
