Earthquake-Proof Sharp Plasmacluster Refrigerator
If you live in an area where earthquakes are frequent, you might want to check out the brand new Plasmacluster refrigerator from Sharp. It has special sensors, so when it detects earthquake movement, it’ll lock the doors down so they won’t open during the quake and let all the food spill out.
Solar Powered Chargers
Voltaic Solar Chargers can keep your phones AND laptops charged with their 16.8 watt charger. What’s cool is you can piece your own kit together designed for YOUR needs! If you want something smaller but powerful the Waka Waka will supposedly give you 40 hours of battery per solar charge!
Big Backup Batteries
If you’re short on sunlight, you just need a really BIG battery. The Gum Max Duo 10,600 milliamp battery is great for your phone and other small gadgets. It’s hard to run the juice outta that thing! Or the HyperJuice batteries for your laptop.
Keeping Your Tech Dry
In a flood, waterproof bags are of course needed to protect stuff while you’re splashing around trying to clean up. I like the Loksak bags because they’re easy to deal with and can take a beating. You can of course use waterproof cases for your phones like the LifeProof cases – the fre or the nuud.
Melody Waterproof Speakers to Survive the Flood
While you and your friends are cleaning up, you might as well try and lift everyone’s spirits up with a little music. The Melody waterproof speaker is great for your pool, but also to have in situations like this where you may be flinging water around.
Bring Some Light to the Situation
Waka Waka also has a product for light, not just power. It’ll give you 16 hours of light. Eton is always a good choice for any kind of emergency gadgets – they have everything. And the FRX1 is a hand cranked weather radio AND LED light. The LuminAID is also really cool. It’s a bag that folds up small. You blow it up and charge it via solar during the day. And then press it to get light flowing when you need it. It weighs 3 ounces. It’s waterproof. It floats. And it can hold a charge for 4 months! Awesome!
Keeping Your Water Safe to Drink
The Purificup will keep your water clean and filtered. In order to remove 99.99 percent of pathogens that can hurt you, it uses some kind of fancy nano-silver membrane technology.
A Phone for Emergencies
The SpareOne emergency phone is powered off double AA batteries. It’ll last 15 years just sitting there waiting for you to need it, and when you do, you’ll get 10 hours of talktime, 24 hours of flashlight.
