RainOn Adventure Tech Field Kit

In additional to the standard plethora of cameras, electronics and communications gear that equips an Everest Base Camp, this season Garrett and team will be utilizing a RainOn Adventure Tech field kit. RainOn Adventure Tech is a hand selected set of devices, apps, and accessories for location sharing, dispatches, documentation, and entertainment. The 2011 Everest/Lhotse RainOn Adventure Tech field kit is comprised of:
The iPod (or iPhone) is the heart of the RainOn Adventure Tech field kit and acts as our field computer, media input, capture, and editor, communications device, and entertainment source (eBooks, music, movies, and games).

We are very excited to be using the mophie juice pack air for the iPod touch 4G to virtually double the battery life of the iPod in such a stylish and cool case. Also the mophie's standard micro USB connector for charging means one less cable for us to carry. The same cable is also used to charge the zoomIt SD card adaptor and the standard Apple iPod cable is not needed in the field. In our opinion, mophie makes the best battery cases for iOS devices and we can't wait to check the performance in the demanding Himalaya environment.
