We're Back!! Busy, Busy, Busy!!

Summer is here and heat is on! After a trip to pick up our trailer in Utah, trip to California and working on the ranch, it's time to get back to our list of 100 Essentials.

We're on to some easy and affordable stock up items with #36 (Batteries and Battery Chargers). Don't wait to stock up on these items!

When it comes to batteries, we like the Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries THE best and longest-lasting disposable batteries. 


It's a good idea to also have rechargeable batteries on hand Most rechargeable batteries do not come with a battery charger so you may need to purchase it separately. For this reason, I have made a list of some of the best battery recharges out there which will go well with your rechargeable batteries. Here are my top two:


Use Solar to charge your electronics if possible. Here is my favorite and most affordable unit!

The PowerPort Solar Lite is so efficient, in fact, that it’s the smallest and lightest charger we’ve tested that can produce 15 W. It’s just 18 by 11 inches when deployed and unfolded and its 11-by-6-inch dimensions when stowed are no bigger than a tablet. At 12.5 ounces, it’s lighter than one, too.

Most of you know that we have and love all of the products from Bill at Hardened Power Systems. This is the JuiceBox G2 built in a faraday cage. You can order directly from Bill on his website.  

We hope that your having a wonderful summer so far but take some time and add to your preparedness while the weather is nice and the supplies are high. 

The work at the ranch continues, even in 110 degrees! Framing for the new doors that will be installed next month.
