Can I buy a simple sleeping bag for all of my outdoor use?
Technically, there are 3 types of sleeping bags for
various uses outdoors - trail, trekking and mountain. Trail bags are great for short trips and
ideal for inexpensive sleeping bags.
Trekking bags are designed for longer use and are usually much more
lightweight. Lastly, mountain sleeping
bags are especially lightweight and are made with extra insulation.

My flashlight won't charge but still turns on when plugged in
Hello, Jacob -
I am guessing that your flashlight uses a rechargeable battery or batteries. If so . . . if you have not already done so, have you replaced the rechargeable battery or batteries with a new one / new ones?
Rechargeable batteries do not last forever and eventually need to be replaced with fresh ones.
It would help in advising you to know the make and model of your flashlight. To provide that information, you can choose Comment and type the information in the Comment box.

Why my lantern want stay lit.
Is this a battery powered lantern (not gas)?
Usually this is caused by old or weak batteries. The light can work for a while, then when the voltage drops too low the light turns off. The battery voltage then rises again and the light can turn on again for a bit. Replace with new batteries.
Sometimes this is caused by bad battery connections, make sure they are very clean.

Ozark trail mini lantern. I have replaced the 3a batteries and it still will not light.
Check for reversed batteries and bad battery connections.
Often the problem is corrosion / bad contacts at the battery terminals, especially if used batteries have been left in the device for a while, even if the batteries have not obviously leaked.
Scraping and/or careful cleaning of the device battery terminals will usually fix this. If corrosion is visible then scrub the terminals thoroughly with a bit of vinegar and then strong baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) solution to neutralise alkali and then rinse well with clean water, then dry. Don't let liquid get inside the works, or if that's unavoidable you might have to dismantle and rinse out then dry.
