SunJack 14W Solar Charger

Charge Your USB Devices with the SunJack 14W Portable Solar Charger

This is my second product that I’ve reviewed for SunJack. The first was the SunJack Waterproof LightStick. This time they kindly sent me the SunJack 14W Portable Solar Charger with the 8000mAh battery. With so many USB powered devices floating around these days, there’s definitely a market for keeping something handy nearby if you need a quick charge. If you use your cell phones, GPS devices or even your GoPro you know how quickly those batteries get depleted. It’s more of a hassle if you’re not near your car – for example, hiking or hunting. Even more importantly it can be a real help to charge or even run a walkie talkie if the batteries are wasted in a SHTF scenario.

Filter Water Easily and Quickly Using the Platypus Gravity Works 2.0L Filter

I’ve reviewed several water filters in the past but most didn’t filter large amounts of water at once, at least without a lot of labor involved. I’m not taking anything away from other filters, because some of them serve their purpose if you need a quick drink of water on the run. The Platypus Gravity Works Filter is a great solution for preppers in need of filtering water in mass and it does it a lot quicker than traditional filters.
