A quiet campground, free of the growl of a generator.
A silent forest, undisturbed by the grumble of ATVs.
A bike ride, less the sweaty uphill climb that leaves you too tired to go further.
A crackling campfire providing warmth, but also powering your cell phone.
Life in the great outdoors is changing. Battery-powered toys and tools for adventuring are the future of outdoor fun. At Camping World, we’re so excited by these new, innovative additions to recreation. So excited, that we want to bring them all to you, together in one place—Electric World.
The electrification of recreation is here, and you can shop all the newest electric toys on the market at Electric World, online, or at the new flagship store in Draper, Utah. You’ll also find select Electric World items available to try out and purchase at your local Camping World and Gander RV & Outdoors.
The Electrification of Recreation
So what exactly is the “electrification of recreation?” It’s a transition to a more sustainable future; a move toward protecting and preserving the great outdoors we love to explore; a step toward a smarter future fueled by clean energy.
The tools and gear we use on a daily basis are getting smarter and more energy-efficient. It’s an exciting time for an industry that has for so long relied on the combustion engine and fossil fuels for powering our adventures outside.
Here are just a few of our favorite items and electric gear from Electric World. Find them in-store, online, or at your nearest Camping World or Gander RV.
Bicycles are the original sustainable form of transit. But, when our legs aren’t enough to power our adventures, we have historically turned to motorized bikes, powered by gasoline, to get us uphill. But today’s electric bikes, e-bikes, are much more efficient. Not to mention, they’re a quieter way to get around. An onboard battery, when fully charged, can take you cruising for 48 miles. Fat tires allow you to tackle a variety of terrains, from sandy beaches to hard-packed snow. Its rugged adventure meets luxury design in the QuietKat electric bikes, outfitted with a 250-350 watt motor.
Electric mobility extends to almost anything on wheels. Electric scooters, e-scooters, offer a more comfortable alternative to the bicycle saddle. Capable of reaching speeds up to 15 mph, scooters are a great way to zip around the campground or commute to work. Perfect for taking on the go, these scooters collapse down, making them easier to store in your RV’s storage bays, tuck in the car, or take on the train.
No need to bring along the gas can on your next off-road adventure. Electric ATVs are here. The DRR EV Safari 4×4 ATV is absolutely silent, making it a great asset for the hunter. Explore up to 35 miles on a single charge.
The American Red Cross Weather Alert Radio with cell phone charger has everything you need to be prepared for emergencies. Stay safe and connected with a radio that is multipurpose. Powered 3 ways – solar, hand crank, or DC input, this radio won’t ever leave you disconnected. A USB charger makes this super handy to have in the hiking backpack in case your phone needs a boost to make emergency calls. Ideal for solo travelers and hikers, this radio’s built-in flashlight comes in handy if you’re hiking past dark. A strobe light is a necessity if you find yourself lost and trying to signal to rescue helicopters above.
The best kind of gear to keep onboard the RV is multipurpose gear. The Eton Aqualite works overtime as a thermos, a solar-powered lantern, a water filter, a first aid kit, and a fire starter–all in one.
Firepit and Grill
When you get back from a long day on the lake, there’s nothing better than kicking back by the campfire and enjoying some hot food. But, there’s no need to bring along the grill and the firepit on your next camping trip. The Biolight FirePit is both an electric fire pit and a grill. Not just any firepit, this electric innovation is designed with 51 onboard air jets that circulate air around the logs, dramatically reducing smoke. Kick back and control the fan speed by Bluetooth from your smartphone and watch the flames respond to the BioLite’s airflow. Mesh sides emit 360-degree radiant heat, so everyone has a warm seat around the fire. A grill top is a great size for cooking up some kebabs, or the day’s fresh catch over logs or charcoal–Hibachi style. But the Biolight isn’t done yet. It will also charge your cell phone too. The onboard battery provides up to 30 hours of burn time, and can also charge your devices in a pinch.
Man’s oldest tool–the fire–just got a serious technological upgrade. The Biolite firepit is three pieces of gear in one: a firepit, grill, and portable battery. When you’re trying to keep the packing list short, pack the BioLite Firepit.
It just makes sense to harness earth’s #1 energy source–the sun. Couple solar power with the energy efficiency of LED bulbs, and you can take your light show way off-grid for extended periods of time. Find all kinds of solar-powered light solutions at Electric World, from patio lighting to flashlights, to pop-up lanterns, and even motion sensor spotlights. No need for long extension cords, or cluttered drawers full of discarded AA batteries. A few hours out in the sun provides an evening of illumination, no plugs are needed.
The new BioLite Alpenglow portable lanterns showcase sleek, smart design with color-changing technology. Capable of recharging your devices, this lantern works double-time on camping trips, setting the mood and providing portable power.
The BioLite Solar Home system is a necessary part of your modern emergency kit. Ideal to have in the home for hurricane season, this setup is a solar-powered radio, lighting network, and music player.
The EcoFlow Pro portable power station converts all power into AC (just like the power you have at home) and can charge up to 10 devices at once. Pair the EcoFlow Pro with a briefcase of solar panels and you can keep all batteries onboard charged when camping off-grid. Recharge the Pro to full charge in little more than an hour. Weighing just 15 pounds, the Pro is easy to take anywhere and perfect for powering devices under 1200 W, like your computer, TV, lights, fridge, phone, or rice cooker.
If the EcoFlow Pro isn’t enough juice for you, upgrade to the EcoFlow Delta Power Station, a battery-powered generator. This powerful device can run appliances like blenders, electric stovetops, refrigerators, and coffee makers, thanks to an 1800 W output. The Delta is so powerful, it can even charge your electric vehicle, boasting 7.5 extra miles on a single charge. Truly a full-service generator, the Delta is unlike its gas-powered counterparts. Zero emissions and silent operation make it a truly revolutionary innovation in portable generators. No gas. No noise. No maintenance.
