    Faraday flashlight

    As has been said, the Nightstar is the real deal, a military grade shake light that will last for many decades, it was also a good suggestion for you to pick up a 9v Pak-Lite, it seems expensive for it's tiny size, but it is also military grade, and you can just use the old batteries that you...

    What Anti Virus software should I use?

    You are right to have Malwarebytes (free, I assume) and to scan with it periodically, and you are right about needing an antivirus for real time protection, download Avast free for your anti-virus and also use "Malwarebytes anti-exploit free".

    i was thinking of a situation of a long term 6 months long blackout when I won't be using the car and don't want to run the engine, but will want to use my flashlights, lanterns, and transistor radios, freely and on high settings at night, so I might want to charge a few AA, AAA, D cell, 18650...

    I'm set up for that as well and I have a little trickle solar charger to keep the battery topped off when not in use. Something that I would like is a small panel that can keep my battery fully charged when using it to charge a lot of batteries, even though I don't have gasoline to run the...

    I lived for many years 70 feet from the Pacific in San Diego, and I had a big pressure cooker and a 60'coil of stainless steel tubing to make a still from, and I also kept the materials to make a large flat solar still in case natural gas wasn't available, I even tried my pressure cooker by...

    I think a quality headlamp for blackouts is indispensable, whether nailing a board over a window in high winds or grabbing blowing lawn furniture, or working on the generator in the garage, in many blackout situations you need a rock solid waterproof headlamp to do difficult chores. For inside...

    Long ago, the first rule of an emergency was, fill the bathtub. In recent decades it is almost never emphasized in general population emergency discussions.
