With August heating up and the bank holiday approaching, we take a look at some outdoor tech to ensure your summer is a hit.

If you’re off camping or going to a festival this bank holiday, why not avoid the queue at the phone charging tent by taking a BioLite camp stove.

The BioLite stove burns wood that can be used for cooking or boiling water whilst taking the excess energy from the flame to charge your phone at the same time. £125

No camping trip would be complete without a BBQ so why not take along an Ecandy BBQ thermometer. This food thermometer will ensure your food is cooked perfectly and folds up like a pocket knife for easy storage. £30

For the green fingered out there, check out the Parrot Flower Power sensors. These twig shaped devices measure sun light, temperature, fertiliser levels and moisture.

They send this information back to your smart phone so you know exactly what your plants need. £40

And finally if you’re planning on having a party this bank holiday then you’re going to need some music in the garden, so why not try the Acoustascape HiFi system from Origin Acoustics.

The set comes with four satellite speakers and an in-ground subwoofer, all remaining completely hidden within the flower beds and will keep your guests dancing all weekend. £1999.
