Ambassador Spotlight: Chris
"The Omni 20+ isn't just another gadget—it's a trusted companion for every journey."
At 14, Chris made his most unforgettable hike at the Snowdonia National Park, UK together with his parents. This pivotal journey ignited more than just an appreciation for nature's splendor—it birthed a profound career in outdoor camping. Through MCM Outdoors on platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook, Chris meticulously curates and shares his adventurous escapades, gear reviews, and all things related to camping.
Navigating through personal hardships, especially while raising two children, Chris discovered solace and purpose in the embrace of the wilderness. He reflects, "The outdoors has been a lifeline during these tough times." Through his online presence, Chris not only shares his passion but has also built a supportive community. Many resonate with his journey, finding inspiration and comfort in his shared adventures.
Journey to the Wild
Chris's path to becoming a seasoned camper wasn't just about scaling peaks and traversing valleys. It was also a personal voyage. As he once shared with Omnicharge, "To me, the great outdoors is escapism from the stresses and strains of fast-paced, modern-day life." From his initial forays with family hikes, Chris delved deeper, joining local hiking clubs and later embarking on multi-day winter expeditions in Scotland.
Throughout these journeys, he encountered various obstacles—both metaphorical and tangible, like the rugged terrains, steep ascents, and unexpected weather conditions of hiking trails. Yet, none of these deterred him. Instead, they shaped his determination and enriched his tales.
Moments of Awe and Resilience
Recalling some of his most cherished moments, Chris speaks of a transformative six-week camping expedition in the Cantabrian Mountains of Northern Spain during his university dissertation.
The experience, as he vividly describes it, was surreal: "Waking up in a tent for six weeks, surrounded by rugged and wild peaks, in such a fascinating landscape - whilst experiencing most weather conditions imaginable was epic."
Other notable memories include braving a winter storm with wind gusts exceeding 60 mph at Pendle Hill, Lancashire, UK, and an unparalleled experience of wild camping on a remote mountain ledge in the Lake District National Park, which granted him a celestial view of the Perseids meteor shower.
Staying Powered Up with Omnicharge
While Chris advocates that enjoying the outdoors needn't be an expensive endeavor, he ensures certain essentials accompany him. Among them are an array of gadgets vital for a content creator, including drones, cameras, ambient lighting, and, notably, a dependable portable power solution.
This has led Chris to trust in the Omni 20+ for its premium quality, versatile charging options, and a detailed LED panel that provides essential device status. As a testament to his faith in Omnicharge, Chris eagerly anticipates the arrival of the new models, always keen to have the best equipment for his adventures.
LiPo batteries, especially during colder months, can quickly lose power. Chris recounts an instance at the Peak District National Park when, amidst capturing the scenery on his phone, it suddenly lost power. Though he managed to find his way, such moments emphasize the unpredictability of outdoor adventures.
For Chris and many adventurers like him, the Omni 20+ isn't just another gadget—it's a trusted companion for every journey. Omnicharge is thrilled to be part of Chris's ongoing exploration, ensuring an elevated camping experience at every turn.
