Apologies to Ray Bradbury, but windy days do approach. Some of our worst storms here in Canada tend to arrive in August, September, and October, so now is the time to consider how we can best prepare.
Believe it or not, we have a suggestion. Portable power. As everyone knows, one of the big inconveniences of a bad storm is losing power (provided you are safe). Candles are lit, and if we are lucky we gather and play favourite board games. If that is not an option, then maybe it would be nice to have a smartphone or tablet handy and charged.
Here is where our Powerocks portable power banks come in.
Powerocks can be charged up, and will keep their charge for a good period of time, losing an average of 8% of their charge per month. More in warmer environments, less in colder. Batteries fully charged should have 50% of their charge after even 6 months, and if you have chosen a large enough capacity power bank, then you will still be able to get a few full phone charges out of it. Even one of the smaller iPad capable Powerocks will still give you a couple of movies worth of power after being stored 6 months.
1. Choosing the Magicube 9000 or 12000 – They can charge iPhones, smartphones, tablets & iPads, and even with only 50% charge left will still charge up 2 smartphones and 40% of an iPad.
2. If in an emergency kit, pulling them out and topping up the charge every 4 months.
Think about having a Powerock around for those nasty storms. If it’s not in an emergency kit, then make a habit of keeping it charged as a rule, because when you need it, you will really want it.
