Blackouts

This week we talk all about blackouts. With the recent storms and blackouts I thought we should talk prepping for the power going out.

We cover batteries for storage. My hierarchy of batteries. With rechargeables being the first line of defense. Eneloop being the best rechargeables you can get. With Energizer Lithium as your reliable emergency batteries. Lastly always stock up on cheap junk batteries. Use them if your rechargeables are not charged and it’s not an emergency. Remember two is one and one is none.

We cover flashlights, candles, battery backups and much more.

While the power outage didn’t last very long it was the kick in the ass I needed. The truth is that it will take longer write this article than it did to put together the system. Like I do with most things I do I tried to find the sweet spot of cheap, easy and most bang for your buck. Lets get down to building a Battery Backup!
