Today we begin twelve days of Christmas gift ideas for the survivalist or prepper in your family. Each gift aims to stay under $500, and we’ll advise on accessories where possible.
On the first day of Prepping, my true love gave to me, a Powertraveller Solarmonkey!
Powertraveller Solarmonkey: $24.95
The Powertraveller Solarmonkey is a small set of flip open solar panels that charges handheld devices. It’s light and durable and comes with a strap to hook to any rucksack. If you want to charge devices that demand more power like smartphones and iPads, you’ll want to upgrade to the Powertraveller eXplorer. Solar power is the only reliable alternative for long distance foot travel, and comes in very handy while camping and boating as well. Preppers should consider placing one in a Faraday cage system along with a cell phone.
