Greetings all, with two recent power outages at my house in the past 4 months that both lasted at least 48 hours, I am wondering what items/products/gadgets I should have on hand to make life more comfortable during the next outage?
I have the basics like candles, a first aid kit, bottled water, canned food, a flashlight, etc, but is there anything else that I could buy and have on hand? I like practical items and follow the EDC lifestyle (Every Day Carry), so I like to buy products/gadgets that are useful.
I am thinking things like a crank radio that also changes my iPhone, maybe a generator, etc.
I am open to any suggestions! Thanks!
