~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
With the storms sweeping our country recently, I thought I would call everyone's attention to a few items that can vastly improve our preparedness. The first is a new portable solar panel from Anker. They have two, one with two panels and one with three. Go with the three panel one. The extra couple ounces is worth it, delivering far more bang for the buck, and maximizes the weight vs. rate. The three panel version is a 21W 2-Port USB Solar Panel Charger with PowerIQ Technology.
It would take a considerable amount of time and space to quantify what a monumental difference and advancement this new Anker solar panel is over my previous solar panel. The Anker solar panel is every bit as durable, and is about the same size and weight folded. However, my old solar panel only delivered 7W at 1 amp out of 2 panels with no Power IQ technology, and cost a lot more!
You can purchase the Anker solar panel here: http://amzn.to/1NNDanZ
You can view it on Anker's website here: http://bit.ly/1mg2R7O
Here are a few of its features taken from Amazon for your convenience:
When you're out enjoying the great outdoors, enjoy another perk: free limitless power. Simply spread out the solar panels or attach to your pack to start recharging your gadgets.
Fast Charging Technology
Exclusive to Anker, PowerIQ discovers and replicates your device's original charging protocol to provide its fastest possible charging speed up to 2.4 amp per port or 3 amps overall (with enough direct sunlight).
Compact design (11.1 × 6.3in folded or 26.4× 11.1in opened) and rugged stainless-steel eye-holes on each corner make attaching it to a backpack or tent a cinch. Super lightweight (14.7oz) and thin (1.1in folded or 0.2in opened), it easily fits in a daypack.
Industrial-strength PET plastic faced solar panels sewn into high-wear polyester canvas ensure it's able to withstand the trials of your outdoor adventures.
Short circuit and surge protection technology keep you and your devices safe.
If you couple that solar panel with the following external battery to store all the solar power you can now harness, you just easily and inexpensively created your own personal, portable micro grid. It really is that simple.

I hope you all find this information both useful and helpful.
Well, I'm totally lost with all of this technical stuff. I'm still back at trying to figure out what solar generator I should get ... but have no clue. I have almost resigned myself to the fact that, if the country's power grid and communications go down, I'll just have to get by with what we have until we can't any more. <sigh> If we were younger, it might be a different story. But I'm almost 63 with health issues and hubby will be 73 in a couple of weeks. So I guess we'll have to be satisfied with the food, water & heating supplies we have.
Thank you for all you are doing to help each other. I admire you greatly. I admire all of you. You all seem to have it together. And I'm so relieved to know there are people out there who are prepared to the extent y'all are.
Thank you for sharing that info Rahthrae.Appreciate your research into this item. Sounds like a very handy gadget. Hope that you are doing well.
I will be looking into this information! Thank you!
Fascinating intercourse my friends: I'm thinking, if anyone actually survives a downed power grid, caused by and EMP or thermal-nuclear blast, the private units may also be fried unless everything is kept in Faraday Cage deep in the bowels of the earth. I'm seeing "smoke signals" in our future. Understanding of course the successful detonation of an EMP will cause 80% of the affected population to cease to exist within the first 30 days, due to freezing cold, starvation or simply attrition under climatic conditions people aren't preparing for, or worse, at the hands of desperate neighbors. It may have been Einstein that said "we know how WWIII will be fought, so we also know that WWIV will be fought with sticks and stones."
Thanks for the info Rahth, welcome back.
With the Covid-19 Pandemic we are living through, I thought I would bring this back to the front page.
Please stay safe everyone. God Bless you all.
Happy Easter to all!!! Easter and Spring are times that show us renewal. This year it will be remembered as the Spring and Easter beginning the demise of the United States as we've known it.
The Corona Virus will not be the cause of this Republic's demise, the manipulated response to the pandemic will. Shutting down the prosperous, most innovative, most free nation, is not happening by accident of a pandemic, but by fear and manipulation of the American people.
Understand, the voluntary cede of American Constitutional and God's Divine Providence for a modicum of false safety will not end well for us.
I leave this post with a couple of excerpts from Kipling's "THE GOD'S OF THE COPYBOOK HEADINGS", oh so pertinent to today, even though written in 1919
"When the Cambrian measures were forming. They promised perpetual peace. They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed, they sold us and delivered us bound to our foe.
And the God's of the Copybook Headings said "Stick to the devil you know.
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."
They sure have done a great job of scaring everyone out of their minds with the model predictions of possible dead from the beginning! We are now seeing how far off they really were!
