WeightSo how much is my "Outback Office" going to add to my backpack? Well, I'm not going to include the Spot and batteries (190g), Camera, batteries and charger (490g), as I always carry them, and I class them as essential items. The charger for the Nexus and the keyboard is the same used for both my phone, Kindle, and Petzl headtorch, so I haven't included the 85g this weighs either:
- Nexus 7 Tablet: 320g
- Keyboard: 215g
- Micro USB Cable: 10g
- Wireless Mouse: 65g
- TOTAL: 610g
610g extra would likely make an ultralight hiker topple over with a coronary, but it's not a back breaking amount. It will all be put to good use to bring the journey to those that are interested.
Finally, as a testament to the equipment, this post was created, in its entirety, using my Outback Office, and images taken from my mobile phone!
