Portable solar packs are great. Mine just requires plugging in 1 cable to connect the battery/transformer with the solar panel. The transformer then offers power through a normal power socket and through USB ports. I used to expect it to be more complicated.If you only need to charge your Pyra, or mobile phone, you could use a portable solar panel pack. But usually you would survive a planned power outage as they are temporary.
We used to prep gas. Eventually most of it was used by a friend who used to laugh out our "paranoid" prepping of gas but afterward had his family sitting in the cold due to raised gas prices.You could also heat your house based on gas, probably other fuels work to, but that also depends on your living conditions and availability of these fuels.
You just have to use really large batteries, try to use little electricity (you can keep yourself warm with gas like TeDaDeS suggested), and keep using the solar panels to further reduce the amount of stored energy you lose in total every day. Of course, you would have to calculate how long you can hang on and decide whether you trust power outages to be solved within that time period. And if the calculation turns out poorly for you, then just move a little bit closer to the equator.How would that work ? I thought batteries didn't last that long. And it would take a lot of batteries to last through winter. I though it was more like use at night what you produced at day.Are you thinking of flow batteries ?
Ah, Ok. I don't know why I thought you meant to use the batteries to power all winter long, not just outages, like in unconnected to the grid. For outages it could work, it's more a question of how long can batteries retain charge.Of course, you would have to calculate how long you can hang on and decide whether you trust power outages to be solved within that time period.
They probably should be checked regularly with the frequency depending on how long they last on average. I guess some manufacturers may provide information on how long they are expected last. Prepping is a bit of work, though not much. Food can be rotated and a lot of supplies, like toilet paper for example, do not require much maintenance (I know from experience, maintaining the toilet paper is my job).it's more a question of how long can batteries retain charge.
That kind of thing makes me livid.The gamma setting on my PS5 keeps getting reset, and sometimes I remember to set it back to what my eyes can tolerate, and sometimes I forget to. Right now my eyes are just a little red from playing with the gamma up high.
Don’t worry, I think I found a fix. I just had to change my TV’s picture settings from “All Sources” to “This Source Only”. That allowed me to create a separate persistent picture settings profile for my PS5.That kind of thing makes me livid.
See, that’s the problem though. I don’t want to spend my entire life asleep.Hah, thats nothing, i can easily spend 20 hours straight in bed. I only get up to get food and if i happen to not be hungry i sleep forever.
I meant drugs in general, prescription or illegal. They are all harmful, even my old lover Mary Jane... somehow I don't feel rested if I kiff. Sleep is so precious..... Aren't they legalising it in Germany soon?Whit the Drugs it’s also a thing I sometimes misunderstand in English :
Shure whe also have the „Drogeriemarkt“ which is the „Drugstore“ there you can buy thinks for Health etc
But Drogen /Drugs stands mostly for illegal Drugs, and not for Medizine
Great. When given the opportunity, please vote for the freedom of the individual to choose, ie legalization.I don’t care if I’m honest
