So you could use some emergency portable power for that eventual power outage. You just need enough power to keep your personal conveniences available.
All you need is a 12 Volt Battery and a 400 Watt power inverter to create a personal emergency power source. Both can be had for under $100. With that you can power your laptop and cell phone for several hours before having to recharge the battery.(depending on the battery size) You can even plug in a low watt fluorescent light bulb to keep you out of the dark.
I have two car batteries I had changed out (but kept) that are perfect to use in this manner. I keep them rotated on a battery tender to keep them charged in the winter. In the summer I have a 20 watt solar panel I can use to keep them charged. I did add a charge controller to keep the batteries from getting over charged and losing charge. Still my total outlay is well under my budget.
Now the nice part is that I can use the power safely inside with just a little noise from the fan on the inverter and no pollution.
