Depends on the iPod. I've got an iPod that has a 160GB hard drive. 11,000 songs and counting, my entire music collection since high school, all on one pocket-sized device. Can't fit that much music on an iPad.

True. If I had an unlimited data plan I'd do exactly that. But with a pay-as-you-go plan, I don't want to have to pay Verizon to upload that many gigabytes of music, and pay again to download it when I want to listen.

Unlimited data and a cell phone or wifi connection.

For us in a 20' ... boondocking means minimal electronics - just a camera / cell combo. Any major electronics repairs will wait until return to base.

Cloud is good. As long as you have connection. Also uses more battery

Just my $0.02

New full timer here. My ipad is the most useful electronic device.

I make videos and do a lot of correspondence. I am fully solar and having an ipad gets me plenty of online time. Having a 3G ipad, a MiFi hotspot and my laptop for video editing, mixing board for audio and a stereo covers pretty much everything.

We got the Verizon IPad, which allows us to both use as a hotspot for our other computer/ laptop with NO additional charge (AT&T charges extra for this feature) AND allows us to activate the data plan month to month rather than having a monthly fee as AT&T requires. That way, if we are near good wifi we don't need to activate the data plan.

We carry a Verizon MiFi, cell phone data plan iPads (large and small), 11" MacBook Air and a Verizon iPhone. For any emergency, I carry a solar/battery/AC Satellite phone and SPOT locator emergency signal device.

LED lighting is great. Makes the lighting inside adaptable to task by adding an LED driver.

Other ideas here are good!

My new indispensable electronic device… A Man Law instant-read digital meat thermometer. Now when I'm grilling meat on my Cobb Grill, I don't have to guess whether the meat is done based just on its appearance.
Man Law Digital Instant Read Thermometer at Brookstone

And since it's instant-read, I don't have to cook my thermomenter with my meat for it to be accurate.

Weather permitting I would rely on the following electronic devices:

Flash Light

12v test light

Solar panel to charge the Airstream Batteries.

That is all.
The trailer has lights, water pump, propane fridge, and a radio. For entertainment I bring paper back books and magazines, go hiking and light a camp fire (with matches), sometimes we bring bikes or the canoe. We play board games, ladder ball and bean bag toss. We cook on a Coleman stove and have a Gas BBQ. All week at work I am bombarded by ringing phones and emails, eat microwaved food and do most of my communicating with a key board. On vacation I want to sit back and enjoy nature.

Many of my friends children can only be entertained by electronics, I can't wait to teach my children how much fun you can have with something as simple as a foot ball.

This summer we tried to get to all of our destinations with out the GPS. I used a map and read road signs to navigate. I was quite proud of myself even if I did have the GPS in the glove box just incase.

If it's really hot I will bring the generators to run the AC.
