If the zombies come, our city will fall, and people can only seek life in the jungle and wilderness. How many days can you live? Do you think you will outlive others? Do you have basic survival skills? Do you know how to make a fire? People always imagine something fun and interesting. But seriously, how long can you live in the wild? Normal people can survive for 7 days without food, but only 3 days without water. With the help of tools, can people live longer? The answer to this blog is: Yes!

How Many Days Can A Person Live In The Wild?

If you're stranded in the wild, how long will it take you to die? The answer depends on a lot of factors, including where you are and what supplies you have with you. But if we say "survival," then the answer may surprise you: It could be months or even years.

"People often think that if they are lost in the woods, they will not survive," says Dr. David Auerbach, an emergency medicine physician at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. "But if they know how to find water and food, they can." In the wild, what people need is food and water. Normal people can survive for 7 days without food, but only 3 days without water. So how long can someone live without food or water? The answer depends on several factors:

Find a shelter:

The first thing that you need to do is find shelter. If you are in the wild, there is a high chance that you will encounter animals. Animals are dangerous and they can attack you at any time.

Source of life-Water:

The second important thing is water. You cannot live without water for more than 3 days. So you have to find some source of water as soon as possible if you want to survive in the wild.

Source of energy-Food:

If you are lucky enough, then there might be some food around where you are stranded. You should try searching for some food items like berries and other edible plants around where you are stranded or if not then look for animals who might have left some food behind them when they were running away from danger.

But anyone who has been out in the wild knows that all this is a bit difficult. The ease of modern society may have made people forget how to make a fire and build a shelter. People used to learn how to survive on Google or YouTube, but what if your phone ran out of battery? Things seemed to be at an impasse. Is there nothing that can help people in the long run? Of course, there is, and that's the sun overhead - you can generate electricity from the sun (if you have a solar portable power station)!

Wild Camping Generator Recommendations:

If you want to challenge life in the wild, you can bring OPPEIN's 2400W solar portable power station. It has an excellent 2232Wh capacity and 2400W output, as well as a large number of output ports, which can meet the needs of your 14 devices at the same time! In addition, it has many functions and features suitable for wildlife:

High-quality materials:

The use of high-quality materials and advanced manufacturing processes ensures its reliable performance. Its material uses an aluminum alloy frame. This frame is automotive grade and can withstand high-intensity impacts. If you accidentally drop the generator on the ground in the wild, you don't have to worry about it being broken.

Fastest recharging time:

You can charge the OUPES 2400W solar portable power station in several ways. It comes with 4 state-of-the-art 240W solar panels that can be fully charged in 3-3.5 hours. At the same time, you can also charge it from the socket, and it only takes 6 hours to fully charge. You can also charge it through a car outlet. But since you're out in the wild, sunlight is your most loyal companion, so charging with solar energy would be the best option.

5 built-in temperature sensors:

It can provide real-time monitoring of the temperature inside and outside the box. When it is too hot or too cold, it will automatically limit output power to ensure that no one is harmed. At the same time, this also ensures a perfect balance between safety and power.

Extra long service life:

OUPES 2400W solar portable power station has a built-in powerful LiFePO4 battery. This battery is automotive grade and remains 80% healthy after 2500+ full charge cycles. That's far more powerful than the 500 cycles of an average generator on the market! That means, in the wild, maybe it will outlive you (just kidding). Anyway, it will be your handy helper.

Include a practical kit:

If you buy this 2400W solar portable power station from OUPES official website, you will get a powerful kit! It includes 2 200W AC adapters, solar panels or Anderson charging cable(optional), a user manual, and a car charging cable. That means that if you have no electricity supply in your campground, you can use this solar generator for emergency lighting and charging. Moreover, when there is sunlight available, this generator can charge your devices with solar power as well.

With A Solar Power Station In The Wild, You Can Live Longer Than You Imagine:

What can you do with your solar portable power station when surviving in the wild?

Day 1-3:

On day 1, we can start building our shelter. A tent is a good option because we will be able to protect ourselves from bad weather like rain or snow that could make us sick if we don't have any shelter at all. And when there are too many bugs around like mosquitoes or ticks that could carry diseases like malaria or Lyme disease, having a tent will be useful for protecting ourselves from them too! You can also use an emergency blanket as an alternative to a tent. The most important thing you should do is to find water sources. When you have found one, you can use your portable water filter to make it drinkable. When you don't know how to purify water in the wild, it's better to boil it or use iodine tablets instead of using chemical solutions such as chlorine or bleach because they will kill all microorganisms in the water, including those which are good for us and help us digest food better.

Shade yourself from the sun, charge your phone and other devices, and use it as an emergency light source. Then recharge the flashlight and use it as a tool for driving away photophobic beasts at night. You'd better go out into the wild and find some edible vegetables. You can also catch some fish by the stream to make delicious food. However, please note that wherever you go, you should pay attention to your surroundings and terrain and avoid falling into the hole.

Day 4-6:

After finding shelter and a source of water, what do we need to do? First of all, we need to find food and build a fire. As for food, we can find some fish around us or hunt for birds and other small animals. If there are no fish or birds around us, we should try fishing using a fishing rod or hunting with a bow and arrow (if you have one). For building a fire, we should use our knife to cut branches from trees and then apply friction to start a fire.

Charge batteries for flashlights, radios, and other devices that run on AA or AAA batteries. Use them to power small portable radios, flashlights, or lanterns. Charge your cell phone or tablet multiple times over this time period. You can also use this portable solar panel to keep your laptop or desktop computer running. During this period, you can pay attention to the power of the generator to see if it is about to run out of power. You can take out your solar panel and recharge it.

Day 7-9:

If you've been out in the wild for a week, you'll find it hard to stay alive without any modern conveniences. You need something that can help keep your body going. The most important thing for survival is water and food, but there are other things that are also necessary for survival like clothing, tools, and medical supplies. Everything seems to be unable to function due to the lack of electricity. At this time, you can use your solar portable power station to bring you some simple pleasures.


If you live alone in the wild with OUPES 2400W solar portable power station, how many days can you live? Actually, this is a question with an uncertain answer. Because people are in different environments, climates, terrains, and altitudes, the survival problems they encounter are also different. But the same is, you can take OUPES's powerful 2400W solar portable power station to live in the wild. Because it is powerful enough!
