Some power banks even come with built-in solar panels, allowing you to recharge using sunlight – perfect for off-grid adventures and work.

3. Smartphone Mount / Monitor Stand

A sturdy and reliable smartphone mount is a must-have for van owners who rely on their phone for navigation, communication, and entertainment. Choose a mount with a strong grip and adjustable positioning to ensure that your phone stays securely in place while driving and is easily accessible when you need it.
