In this post, I’m going to cover building a portable USB device charging kit and how that fits well into your preps.

I’ll go over the how what and why of building a device charging kit.

I won’t get all technical and geeky on you. Honestly, while I’ve been using these kits for the last five years, I have no interest in learning anything beyond what is necessary to make the best portable charging kits while keeping the costs down.

In part one of this two-part blackout kit series, A Basic Emergency Generator, I want to cover what I know about using a generator for the temporary but inevitable power outage.

The key phrase there is “What I know“. In other words, using a basic gas-operated emergency generator. Period. That’s what I have and use. Not a solar generator, whole house, or even an inverter generator.

While all of those sound like fantastic ideas, I want to stick to blogging about what I actually have experience with.

What you’ll get here is my story, what I learned, and how I think I can improve my own situation. Maybe that will help you. So here we go:
