Quick Product Pimp

I don't often do this, but today's (2/23) Woot Sellout Item is a crank radio/flashlight that gets the NOAA weather channels and AM/FM bands. I've got one similar to it that lives in the bin of emergency gear. $25 is a good price. If you don't have something like it, you should. Most household or car radios don't pick up NOAA weather, and if things are going sideways, battery life will be at a premium. This doesn't need them.

Now ya got me going again.

HF sells a battery charger called "Speedy Box Smart Charger", HF p/n 47620.

It charges 9v & 1.5v batteries using a wall wart. The good part is the wart is 12v, so dump the wart & charge your Ni-MH & Ni-Cd batteries directly from you 12v solar system.

Handy in grid down situations...
