Battery World Joondalup powers up campers

As we enter into winter, the ‘power couple’ behind Battery World Joondalup has prepared the ultimate travel guide for your next off-grid camping adventure.

Self-proclaimed ‘camping fanatics’ and experts in the industry with more than a decade of experience, Jordan and Jo Daw know everything there is to know about camping during the winter season. Embarking on over 30 camping trips with their two children, the couple love escaping Perth’s northern suburbs to places a little quieter during the winter holidays.

Camping is no easy feat with the family, but being prepared can make the world of difference, so keep reading to find out Jordan and Jo’s top tips.

Tip 1: Invest in solar

Apart from a tent and sleeping bag, the most essential items to take camping is food and drinks. To keep your food and drinks cold (and the family happy), you need to store them in a camping fridge, and to keep that fridge cold, you need a battery source. The most effective way to keep that battery source charged 24/7 is by investing in high-quality portable solar panels, especially if you’re off-grid camping with limited charging stations – trust us, you won’t regret it!

Tip 2: Always pack a jump starter

According to Jordan and Jo, it’s important to prepare for every situation when camping, and that includes packing a jump starter. During winter, the temperature can drop quite low which can put added stress on your car battery. When camping, most people tend to leave a car door open or their lights on for long periods, so it’s always a good idea to have a jump starter charged up and ready to go in case of an emergency – the last thing you want is to get stuck in the middle of nowhere, particularly in remote camping areas.

Tip 3: Check your battery before you go

Not sure if your battery is performing at its peak? Well before you embark on your adventure, it might be time to get a health check completed to see if you need a new one or if it just needs some charging and maintenance. Either way, Battery World Joondalup have all the equipment needed to test batteries ranging from trucks, cars, boats, motorcycles, and more to ensure they know exactly what capacity your battery has – and the best part is it’s completely free of charge and only takes a few minutes!

Tip 4: Choose your location wisely

When asking for advice on where exactly to camp during winter holidays, Jordan and Jo have got you covered. For wintery getaways, Jordan and Jo suggest travelling to the southwest such as Esperance or the iconic Margaret River – nothing beats toasting marshmallows by the beach in winter!

However, for longer trips the couple love heading north to the warmer weather including the Exmouth region, and Karajini. No matter where you go in WA, make sure you do your research on where you’re staying, the local fire restrictions, camping procedures, and everything in between so you get the most out of your holiday.

And remember, wherever you travel this winter, Battery World has stores right across Australia to ensure you stayed powered up all season long.
