By Gaye Levy – Backdoor Survival
As more of our lives become digital, having a simple way to keep our devices charged poses a dilemma when out in the field, hiking, or during a power outage. Luckily, there are many solar options available and with each passing year, they get lighter in weight and lower in cost. Plus, as technology advances, the panels are producing more sun-juice then the portable systems that were available a mere three years ago.
Why should preppers care about charging our digital gizmos? After all, if the grid is down, cell service will be INOP as well. The simple answer for me, at least, is that my devices are a virtual library of knowledge, crammed with eBooks, PDFs, photos, and a bit of entertainment to keep me occupied during dire times.
