I get asked all the time: “If there was ONE solar thing you could take and you had to leave everything else, what would it be?”
Fortunately I have an easy answer to that question. It’s the solar powered combo flashlight and radio.
I really like it for a variety of reasons:
- It’s inexpensive but built well for crisis conditions. There is a lot of poorly made crap out there, but this little guy is tough and stands up to a beating.
- The LED flashlight will last a good 1-2 hours with a full charge in the sunlight
- The radio will last 3-4 hours on a full charge with the volume turned down low
- Its very portable and lightweight
In a crisis you’ll likely be without two critical things: power and communications. This little gizmo will help solve two of those issues for around $40.
