    I have a 880? watt solar panel system. Please view my “DIY Solar Panel System” video series.

  3. TheQuite1walksalone

    Another great Video!!!?

  4. LDSPrepper

    I have not. I have alkaline and rechargeable batteries for my flashlights? and lanterns.

    Did you buy them? I did! I can’t wait to receive it. I’m trying to get at least one of each? model like solar, crankable, shakable, and with batteries. I like the small 4-inche long led flashlights that you can buy at the dollar store for $1 or $2. You can buy many of these. They will be excellent for trade during power outages. People will be desperate to get at least one. You can trade one for one day-worth of food or something you need but don’t have.

    Personally, I have a baseball bat whenever I answer the door, which I rarely do. The people who live with me think I’m a bit paranoid. Well, until a few days ago. Thugs knocked at doors, claiming they are with the gas company. Once the person opened? the door, they were tazed and then tied up with duck tape, then brutalized and robbed. People usually think that bad guys come only at night. Knowing that, those invaders did their things in the morning and afternoon.

  7. Gentilseulement

    We cannot use pepper spray either for self-defense. Actually, it is totally illegal to own pepper spray. We can’t have tazers either. Among things we can use is bear spray, dog repellent, baseball? bat.

    True. Here in Toronto, Ontario (Canada(, the only times we hear about guns, it is when there is a shooting on the street, and people are very impressed by movies where only bad guys and cops use them. Those two things give guns a bad reputation. We never hear of the stories where guns saved lives. A home invader sneaks into my house, I shoot him, and I? have more judicial problems then he will, especially if it is found out that the invader did not have a weapon on him.

  9. LDSPrepper

    We are afraid of what we are not familiar with.?

  10. Gentilseulement

    Here in Canada, you would be brought to jail immediately if the police saw you with a firearm.? Canadians are scared of firearms.

  11. Gentilseulement

    In a situation where there is? no power available for a long time in your area, I hope you don’t let your solar panels outside, because there is a high risk they may be taken away.

  12. LDSPrepper

    LOL, I’m guessing you are? new to my channel. I have a generator and solar panels so I am able to recharge the batteries. Although rechargeable batteries actually last longer than non-rechargeable. I know that for a fact as I have tested several types over several years.

  13. mrjoeyb

    What the hell? good are rechargeable batteries if there is an extended power outage?

  14. LDSPrepper

    I am returning the Coleman LED latern tomorrow. I bought? two Rayovac laterns to replace the Coleman. The Rayovac uses only 3 D batteries not 8. It lasts 2x longer. It is brighter than the Coleman.

    I can’t thank you enough for documenting all this information. I am in the process? of getting my lists of needed equipment together. I have to prepare for 4 people in our immediate family and plan to help my parents get themselves prepared for the inevitable. So thanks again and please keep the information coming!

  16. LDSPrepper

    Awesome recommendation. I just checked them out. They? are on my shopping list now. Thanks!

  17. LDSPrepper

    Great idea. Thanks for sharing. “Happy kids.? Happy me.”

  18. LDSPrepper

    Exactly. I have a pack just for me and I? have used them like you mentioned.

  19. LDSPrepper

    I just couldn’t stop! It? was fun. Thanks for watching.

  20. logun1970

    oh and also Glow sticks (12hr kind) REMEMBER KIDS: They are not just? for Raves!!!!!!

  21. logun1970

    don’t forget about Solar powered lanterns & flashlights. Energizer makes a flashlight that is crank & solar powered as well as solar powered lanterns. Harbor Freight has a solar powered lantern that can be charged? via 12 volt system or wall charger. These will be handy when the batteries (rechargables) run out too quickly or just don’t work any more as well as the standard batteries.

  22. ibemamo

    In the video you? asked what I’ve cooked off grid. Just one example: I prepared our (wife and me) recent holiday dinner in an SOS and a makeshift, car shade funnel oven. I roasted turkey wings, sweet potato souffle and green bean casserole outdoors – a typical holiday menu using an atypical method. Because I’ve been cooking with solar heat for a few years, I wasn’t surprised with the great results.

  41. Tod Grim
