Thanks for the replies. I wrote a reply earlier, but it seems to be lost to the ether and/or awaiting moderator approval(?).

I’ll give it another go:

Tourist in MSN, staehpj1: My phone is my camera, gps and tablet; the tradeoff (like most smart phones these days) is that it does not have a removable battery.

Tourist in MSN, good point on the power strip, thanks. A headlamp is only thing I am taking which uses AA batteries and since this coast trip is only a couple weeks long I will not need rechargeables.

3speed, I agree dynamo's are great! A dynamo and an usb waterproof headset was gonna put me over budget. Before I built my touring rig I spent a lot of time and money on an Orfos Flare Pro front and rear light set up. The Flare Pro doesn’t work with a dynamo hub and needs an external battery to run, this also motivated me against a dynamo. I am not a huge fan of the Flare Pro but it’s what I have.
