Ready for the Road?

Ready for the Road?

Whether you’re planning a road trip or taking a long journey to see family and friends, it’s important to be well-prepared. A small issue on the road far from home can be a big problem. You also want to be ready to enjoy your trip!


You need basic supplies of food (including plenty of snacks!) and bottled water to sustain you on the drive and cover possible delays. Take extra clothing for different situations and weather conditions. Bring all your technology too—who can live without their phone, e-reader, or portable gaming gear?! The most essential of all is of course your traveling companions!… Your partner, children, friends, dog… Shouldn’t need to mention these but I’ve seen how someone can be left ‘Home Alone.’ Maybe I’ve just watched too many movies! I’m sure that’s it, but we’ve all forgotten something when going away. There’s that nagging feeling, ‘I feel like I’ve forgotten something… Hope I haven’t!’ Then when we’re already well on the way or have arrived at the destination… ‘Kitchen sink! I knew I forgot something! ARRGH!’ On the plus side, I don’t need to re-fit it when I get back.


So, you’ve got your supplies, gear, and those most dear; but are you prepared to deal with a flat car battery, low tire, or various power demands while on a trip? Fanttik’s got you covered.


Flat batteries happen when you least expect it. FACT! Did you leave the headlights on overnight or were you just a victim of a suddenly failing battery? All that really matters is getting the car going right away rather than being left stranded. Fanttik T8 Apex Jump Starter is the perfect solution. Simple, powerful, reliable. Clip on, power on, and… START YOUR ENGINE! Off you go again. The unit has power for gas engines up to 8.5L and diesel engines up to 6L. Apart from getting you going when your battery has given up, this jump starter can also charge your USB-C and USB devices. It’s a very useful backup to have on your trip.

It’s important to keep your tires correctly inflated; especially for long trips. Benefits include better fuel economy, driving performance, and safety. If you ever have to repair or replace a tire, you may even need to inflate from flat. It’s clearly good to be prepared with a pump of your own and carry it with you on long journies. The Fanttik X8 Apex Tire Inflator is a compact unit that fits the bill. It’s a totally self-contained system needing no power connection to operate. Have air with you wherever you go. The extra-powerful Apex model inflates a typical car tire in about 5 minutes and can do four tires on a single charge of the large 7800mAh battery. It’s not just for cars though– there are adjustable presets for cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and balls (plus a manual mode). Precise pressure is clearly displayed and inflation stops automatically at the set pressure. There’s a light so you can see what you’re doing and you can even use the X8 Apex to charge your phone.

On an outdoor adventure, you probably want to keep various devices charged and maybe run a small appliance or two. How do you do that if you’re going off-grid? You need a serious power source like the Fanttik EVO 300 Power Station. It’s made for self-sufficient outdoor living, with a 299Wh battery capacity and compact, rugged design. The nine AC & DC outputs can power multiple electronic devices at once and there’s up to 300W of AC power for appliances. There are also three inputs for recharging, with the option to recharge from sunlight using the Fanttik EVO Solar 100 Solar Panel (sold separately). The bright light on the back also provides effective illumination for camping.


Take all the equipment you need, along with plenty of food, drinks, and clothing. Allow extra time for your journey and drive safe. Whether you’re a keen camper, road trip enthusiast, or just want some backup for your usual driving, Fanttik empowers you to enjoy the journey to the full.
