Charge your phone from the sun or keep your beer warm for hours with these top outdoor gig-going gadgets.

A portable phone charger that contains enough juice to charge an energy-sapping smartphone three times over.
Don't be one of those people who spend an entire festival without washing. This portable solar shower heats cold water in around three hours.
Keep your beer cool for up to 12 hours with this insulated keg, perfect for festivals, that has a capacity of 20 pints. You'll never drink a warm can of lager again.
An amazing piece of kit that not only acts as a stove, but also uses the heat from burning twigs to power a generator that can then charge all your electrical devices.
Keep your tent illuminated with this funky lantern that you can carry round like a torch. It uses six super-bright LEDS.
The unfortunate truth is that while at a festival you will probably injure yourself, whether twisting your ankle in the mud, or tripping over a guy rope. This handy travel first aid kit should help keep you dancing.
If you've got your hands full, this headtorch will keep you out of trouble. It uses the latest LED technology, lithium batteries and delivers 40 lumens of light.
If the line-up isn't doing it for you, there's always your iPod. This hardcore speaker set is waterproof, shockproof and will even float if you end up dropping it in water.
Another must-have for festival-going iPhone owners, this combines an-edge-to-edge protective case with a charger that doubles the battery capacity to keep you fully charged all day and all night.
Stick it in the sun and it will collect rays to keep devices powered for hours.
