- In a handbasket
I used my PD36R to work in a dimly lit rack to roll a fiber optic circuit to a new transceiver.
I should add, I am very lucky so far. If outage went on further I have tons of "free" alkalines. Also, was charging 12v lawn tractor battery out back using solar (and some small gel cells) so could have recharged flashlight and portable fan 18650s etc. using 12v charger.Fierce thunderstorm here last saturday caused huge damage to electrical grid, many people still out. I was off for 14 hours, used various flashlights, small lanterns. nightlights etc. overnight.
