Camelback Water Level Indicator
‘camelback’ rucksacks are specially designed to contain a collapsible water bag with a tube and mouthpiece. Sadly with the water tank on your back it’s not easy to tell how much there’s left to drink. With our solar-charged level indicator though you’re good to go Into the Wild, come rain or snow.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
