40 Birder's Guide to Gear | November 2015 coordinates, which is handy for entering your lists into eBird. Power • If you have a lot of gadgets that need to be charged every day and you plan on traveling in areas with limited electricity, you may also want to take along a portable power bank and a portable solar charger. Both (available at REI and Amazon) can charge any device that can be charged via USB. To charge the portable power bank, you can either hook it up to a portable solar panel, like a Goal Zero Solar Charger, or to an electric outlet. Extras • I recommend stashing a few of your fa- vorite energy bars in your backpack, especially if you have any dietary restrictions. While prepack- aged foods are widely available, having something familiar and tasty is a welcome accompaniment to your list of lifers. Take only processed, pre-packaged foods, though. Anything unlabeled and/or perish- able is likely to get you in trouble with customs.
