Nuclear War Survival Skills - The story of this book and what it can do to save your life is so vast any description here is just the tip of the iceberg. The book was designed, written, tested with real people, then re-written multiple times. The book is designed to be given to you after an atomic weapon goes off (not next door to you) and you have to make a radiation fallout shelter with just what you have in your house. Everything in this book is about what you own and have in your house. No place does it say you have to buy 'this' or 'that' survival tool. Heck, the book even shows you how to make an accurate radiation fallout meter from a soup can, aluminum foil, dental floss and clear plastic. I'm not joking. The book will show you how to make a radiation shelter under a table or a desk by putting boxes of dirt and or books over and around you. It will show you step by step how to dig a trench shelter in your back yard, cover it with cut down trees, and cover that with dirt, for a radiation shelter. It even teaches you how to dig a whole put your car over it and fill the car with dirt as a radiation shelter. I'm just touching the surface here, there are many radiation shelters in the book, even above ground shelters for places like Florida that have high water levels. Cresson Kearny dedicated most of his life to writing this book and he was a dear friend and mentor of mine. I am dedicated to keeping this book alive and available to the people for their need in time of a nuclear emergency. - Steven Harris

The Effects of Nuclear Weapons 3rd Edition 1977 (the most current version)
This is the COMPLETE Book that was at one time Classified TOP Secret.  It is now UNclassified and contains all of the original material that was TOP SECRET, it has NOT been redacted.  It is a fascinating book. The Book is NOT Small, its 672 Pages.
The DoD's classic and comprehensive 'bible' on the effects of Nuclear Weapons, written with extreme scientific detail, is a MUST HAVE for anyone working in Homeland Security, Emergency Services or in any other Civil Defense capacity. With this book you can KNOW the effects of a weapon at any distance, including blast speed, overpressure, prompt radiation, thermal radiation, fall out values and timeline, along with everything else, like EMP. It can even tell you potential crater sizes. The reverse is true as well. If terrorists were to set off a nuke on the ground, measurement of the crater would indicate the yield of the weapon used. Glass windows broken at X miles away would also indicate the yield of the device with this book. This book is especially important for information services that must be able to provide accurate information in the aftermath of a NUCLEAR ATTACK. If you want to know what a 5 Kiloton stolen Soviet suitcase nuke would do, this book will tell you without requiring that you know everything that nuclear scientists know.

Powerex MH-C800S Eight Cell Smart Charger $54.95
This is by FAR my favorite charger, and its a premium one and it does not GOOF UP.  It charges each battery individually, so you can put in 1 battery, 2, 3, 5, 7 or 8 at once. When you put it in, it starts to charge it.  It takes about 1 hours to charge one battery, but you can charge 8 at a time.  8 in 2 hours is about as good as 4 in 1 hour for me.  Also, there is an LCD display for each battery, so you know when each one is charged.  There IS a more expensive version of this one that does charge all 8 in 1 hour BUT THIS one here is my favorite.  The 1 hour charger has a huge power supply that comes with it.  This one has a nice small 'wall wart' power supply.
 

(8 AA Batteries) Sanyo NEW 1500 eneloop 8 Pack AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries $19.70
This link will let you buy 4 or 8 or 16 or 20 batteries at once, all at a discount.  DO NOT buy the charger they have.  I don't like it.  DO NOT by the "XX" batteries, I have not put those though the ringer like these ones.  I have exhaustively tested the eneloop batteries for years on my lab bench and in all of my personal gear.  They are the batteries I carry the most.  These eneloops can be charged and used up to 1500 times each.  That's a lot of charging.  They have the PERFECT chemistry for a AA NiMH battery.  You can trust and depend on these.  If you want to buy Duracell AA NiMH batteries, buy THEM HERE.  DO NOT buy the Energizer brand of NiMH batteries, they all STINK and are antiquated NiMH technology.  Shame on the pink bunny.
 

ZTS Computer Controlled Pulse Loading Mini Battery Tester $32.00
This is probably the most important tool on this page.  This lets you see how much energy is left in your AA, AAA, C or D NiMH or Alkaline Battery.  This is NOT some 'dumb' battery checker.  This is the smartest one on the market.  All of those 'meter' battery checkers just check the voltage and that is NOT a real way to check a battery State Of Charge (SOC).  To really test a battery you need to see how much current it can deliver, this lets you know how much active surface area of the battery is reactive and left.   This tester 'tugs' on the battery to measure its current ability.  Its also called Pulse Loading.   When this thing says you have 80% of your battery, you can bet on it.  When it says its near dead, its there.   I have been using this line of battery checkers since 2005 and it travels with me everywhere I go (when I travel).  What good are batteries if you can't tell which ones are good and which ones are bad.
 

(8 AAA Batteries) SANYO NEW 1500 eneloop 8 batteries AAA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries $17.94

I would really really prefer to stay 100% with AA batteries and NOT use AAA batteries, but some handy things (like head lamps - see below) use these AAA's and they are just too awesome to not use them.  Also many of the inexpensive tactical lights use AAA batteries so they are handy for that purpose.  Try to buy things that use AA batteries instead of AAA.  Its not that AAA's are so bad, its just that the AA is so much better and its a lot more standard.

8 pcs of Tenergy D Size 10,000mAh High Capacity High Rate NiMH Rechargeable Batteries $54.06 * NEW *
Some of you have written me and you just REALLY REALLY want D Cell recharable batteries, DO NOT use the AA to D cell sleeves unless its an emergency, because a D cell NiMH is over 4x-5x the charge of a AA NiMH battery.   These are the D Cell Batteries I would buy, but then you also need a special charger for the D Cell NiMH batteries I would buy.
NOTE: these are NOT the "pre-charged" or "stay charged" newer NiMH technology like the Sanyo Eneloopes, you cannot charge these and then go use them months or a year later in an emergency, you must charge them and then use them, and charging a full size D cell like this can take all day.  NEW:  There are NEW Low Self Discharge Versions of this Battery Here.

New C-Cell Low Discharge Tenergy Batteries are here
 

Tenergy V-9688 Super Universal LCD Battery Charger with USB Port $31.99 * NEW *
This charger does AA to D cell size, plus 9 volt batteries.  I do NOT like it as much as I do the POWEREX AA/AAA charger above.  I only use this one for charging D cell batteries, and it can take a good 8 hours, more or less depending on the state of charge of the battery, to charge up D Cell NiMH batteries.   Again, if you are just starting out, get the Powerex above and the Sanyo Eneloop batteries, if you really must have D cell batteries than get the batteries above and this charger.   It'll make a good backup AA charger for you as well in case you break, bash, smash, flood your other one.  2 is 1, 1 is none.
 

Sanyo Eneloop Spacer Pack: 4 Pack of C-size and 4 Pack of D-size Adapters $24.95  * NEW *
NO NO NO NO Do NOT BUY...NOT Harris Approved unless its for a 3rd level backup.  a AA NiMH battery is about 2000-2200mah, a good NiMH D Cell is 10,000+mah.  1st you should have D Cell Alkaline Batteries, your next backup or option is D Cell NiMH Recharable Batteries (Tenergy Above) only if you ran out or lost those would you even consider using these shells.  There are here because I get asked about them A LOT !  Some times the springs in your D Cell device don't mate up with the end of the AA in the shell.  There are LOTS of issues, but they do work as a 3rd level backup to what I mentioned.  Keep this in mind.  These 'shells' are about 1/4th the price of buying the above charger and 8 real NiMH batteries.  Get the real thing.
           

Energizer L91BP-8 Lithium AA Photo Battery (8-Pack) $15.26
* NEW *
I talked in detail at the end of the show that the stuff in your 'go bag' or 'emergency' kit should have Energizer Lithium AA batteries in it.  They have the longest shelf life, the most power, the best heat and cold tolerance and they are the lightest batteries there are. (these are NOT rechargeable).  If you are getting stuck with one battery, you want to get stuck with this one.  You use the rechargeable ones when you are home in a disaster and you can recharge them from your car.  When stuck in the wild, use these blue and silver Energizer Lithium Batteries.  You can also get "AA Ultimate Photo Lithium Battery 24 Battery Bundle for $40.25 (bulk pack)"  or you can get

"Energizer Ultimate L91BP-4 Lithium AA Battery - 24 Batteries IN ORIGINAL RETAIL PACKS NOT BULK for $42.95"  Even the 8 pack above for $15.26 is cheaper than the batteries are at Sams Club. 
If you want the AAA version, them them HERE
 

Rock Solid Battery Holders Storacell by Powerpax "AA" 12 Pack Battery Caddy, Yellow - Holds 12 "AA" Batteries  $4.95+
These are the most awesome battery holders I have ever come across, I use them all the time, AA, AAA, C, D, 9volt, CR123, you name it, they have holders for the batteries or sets of the batteries. Want to hold 12 AA battts ? they got it, want to hold 6? or 4? they have it.    This link will give you an entire page of ones to choose from.  Stay with the POWERPAX brand, its 100% Harris Approved.

Duracell 813-0807 800 Watt DC to AC Digital Power Inverter $41.99  IF this is SOLD OUT on Amazon, get the Cobra Below!
The 400 watt one is only $10 less, this is 800 watts and is a much better buy, runs at 150 watts through the cigarette lighter or 800 watts when clamped on the battery.  Leave the car idle and you can run your refrigerator or freezer (one at a time) on this inverter.  The BEAUTIFUL thing about this inverter is the display, it gives you the voltage in, out and POWER (in watts) that you are drawing at the time.  So you know if you are sipping power and can leave the car off all night or if you are being a power HOG and have to leave it idle.  Nothing like instrumentation.  Use this alternate link if the one above is sold out. (the 800 is sold out, get the 400 at the alternate link !!! -Steve )
 

Cobra CPI 880 800 Watt 12 Volt DC to 120 Volt AC Power Inverter with 5 Volt USB output $46.36  * NEW *
So many people tried to buy the Durcell 800 watt inverter that everyone on Amazon and most of the web is 100% SOLD OUT.   I do have and use Cobra inverters... I've been surprised at how good some of them have been.

IF you can't get the Duracell one above, get this one.  It does not have a display on it like the Duracell one...but it works great.  I also can't say enough about how good the Duracell 400 watt inverter is (see link above).  It works great, plus it comes with the cigarette lighter plug.  Its OK to have a good inexpensive 400 watt inverter and a good inexpensive 800 watt inverter.  2 is 1, 1 is NONE.  you need a backup and 400 watts of power is a LOT of power when you are in a black out.   Don't turn your nose up at 400 watts.
 

BESTEK 150 Watt Power Inverter WITH 2 USB 3.1A charger $21.09
This is one of the sweetest little inverters I have found.  It puts out 150 watts AC (the most you can via just a cig lighter socket) AND it has TWO USB outputs and ONE of the outputs is 2.1 amps (for iPads and new smart phones) and it has a 1amp socket for all other USB Charging.  Note: cheap USB chargers are 0.5 amps, this one is 2.1 and 1.0.   If you can only afford to get one inverter, get this one.  You'll have to charge your phone / pad in the car and not in the home, but that's better than no charge at all.  You can still run an extension cord from here to inside the house to run some LED lights or SMALL fans. Don't even think of powering your refrigerator or freezer from this, get the 800 watt one above.  If your car does not have a 12 volt power outlet that is always on, then you'll need to get the RoadPro 12V Battery Clip On Adapter Below (its $5.02)
 

BESTEK 300 Watt Power Inverter WITH 2 USB 3.1A charger $25.09
This is exactly the same inverter as above but its got a cable on it to go into the cigarette lighter socket and its a 300 watt inverter.  Double the power for only about $4.00 more money PLUS it still has the TWO USB Chargers on it, at 2.1 amps and 1.0 amps.
 

Duracell 175-Watt Pocket Inverter with 2.1-Amp USB Port $42.04
Of the small inverters, the highest quality, with the smallest size is this Duracell inverter.  Yes. I own it.  It has the smallest profile and it also has ONE 2.1 amp USB port on it.  Not two USB ports.  Its the one that travels with me in my laptop bag all the time.  Size matters.   This is also the most expensive inverter of this class but that is because of its size and quality.
 


Steven Harris on Light -  What do you need in Light ?? - Important to Read.
You need 3 types of lights:

1. Small Light:
1/2 watt or less (30 lumens or less) flash lights for doing small things.  Reading, looking in drawers, walking around the house etc..This is the most common light you will use.  I also call this "Necessary Light" because you are only using the necessary amount of light needed, not too much light.
 
2.  Emergency Light:
2, 3 watts or more LEDs, 80, 180, 250, 400 lumens for finding lost children in the night type of stuff.   Tactical lights on guns fall into this category as well.

3: Room light or Area Light
.  Something you can put in a room with 4 people and light the place up decently because you are going to be there and you have energy to spare.  If are charging D Cell batteries from your car, you have energy to spare. 
 

Energizer Trail Finder 7 LED Headlight $17.83

Most of you know I'm not a big fan of energizer, but they have it 100% Correct in this 7 LED headlamp.  Its has red LEDs and lots of bright white LEDs for near and far, it has 4 different modes it switches between and it has a REAL PHYSICAL SWITCH.  So when its OFF, it is really OFF.  Its not 'on' but drawing a small amount of current waiting for you to press the 'on' button.   That is called a 'soft on'.  This head lamp has a HARD Switch that turns stuff 100% on or 100% off.  It has low light mode for long battery life and it has a LIGHT 'EM UP mode for plenty of light NOW.  Its made for contractors so its durable as heck and can take a beating.  It does run on 3 AAA batteries.  I wish it was AA's, but its not.  So make sure you get some of the Eneloop AAA rechargeable batteries above.  This is an excellent "Small Light" and the bright mode is good, but not quite emergency light bright, but close.  If you are running AAA battery items in a small 'kit' then this is the perfect light to go with the Maglight XL-200 AAA Light below.
 

Maglite XL200 LED Flashlight, Black - Brightest Maglight in Existence $34.45  *NEW*
Like the above energizer head lamp, this flashlight runs on 3 AAA batteries.  Its the brightest maglight flashlight  made and its very small and hides in the bottom of your pocket until you want to light up something like its daylight.  This would make vampires run for cover and smoke.  Its 172 Lumens...most tactical flashlights use to be 80 lumen.  This is over double that.  I've been using this flashlight for the last 7 months on a daily basis and have fallen in love with its quality and its performance.  I run this on 3 AAA eneloop batteries all the time.  This main use of this light is for 'finding a lost child'.  Its too much light for normal stuff.  Its an emergency light.  If you are running AAA batteries in a small, portable kit, then this is the perfect flashlight to compliment the Energizer Head Lamp (above)
 

Fenix HL21 White LED Headlamp, 1AA, 90 lumens $30.92 *NEW*
Simple Simple Simple is what this is.  1 AA Battery, 90 lumens (more than bright enough) and a simple ON/OFF and only 1 Strap, and the diffuser flips over the light if desired for close up work.  The Energizer Head Lamp (above) and the Maglite XL200 (above) are BOTH AAA battery powered.  I wanted you to have a AAA headlamp and flashlight option and I wanted you to have a AA headlamp and flashlight option.  So I found and got this AA headlamp and it has been a real trooper for me.  Its going with me when I travel.  One thing I LOVE about it, its got a 3 Lumen mode on it (just necessary amount of light) and it'll run for about 53 hours on 1 AA battery in that light mode.  This headlamp will work good (2 is 1, 1 is none) with the MagLite 2AA and 3AA flashlights (below)
 

MAGLITE SP2209H 2-AA Cell Mini LED Flashlight with Holster $19.99

Well I had to put a AA flashlight in the mix and here it is.  The 2 AA flashlight I use the most, the maglight LED flashlight.  It has a dim mode, a bright mode, a flashing mode and you can unscrew the cap off and use the cap as a base to hold up the flashlight like a candle stick and the bare LED lights up the whole room like a candle would, but it does it for 31 hours on low on 2 AA batteries.
The important thing about this is that it SIPS energy (for 31 hours) on low and it will provide 'enough' light in an entire room or more than enough light when directed onto something, plus its got its bright mode for finding something outside in the dark.  This is an excellent 'Small Light' and a pretty 'emergency light'.  Its an ok 'room light' because the cap comes off and its like a candle.
 

MagLite SP23MRH 3-AA Cell Mini LED Flashlight $21.95 *NEW*
The 2 AA maglight directly above is awesome, its great, its fine.  This one is brighter and it uses 3 AA batteries instead of 2 so its got more brightness, its got longer battery life (because it has 3 batteries) and its a bit longer (by one cell) than the one above.   Also, on Amazon its only available in camo color, but that's cool.   This is a 3 Watt LED light just like what is in their 3D cell flashlights, except it will use your AA recharable batteries, and your alkaline batteries and your AA lithium batteries.  If I had to pick the 3 cell or the 2 cell, I'd take the 3 cell, if weight was imperative like it is for some hikers, take the 2 cell one above. This is an excellent 'Small Light' and a pretty 'emergency light'.  Its an ok 'room light' because the cap comes off and its like a candle.
 

Mag-Lite ST3D016 3-D Cell LED Flashlight, Black $25.25
* NEW
*
We increasingly live in a AA / AAA battery world and we have a great deal of valuable & reliable tools that use these batteries.  a AA NiMH can have ~2200mah of capacity, the above NiMH D cells have 10,000mah and a Duracell D cell alkaline is about 14,500mah and in 8-10 years (the date on the battery) it will still have 82%-85% of its energy if stored at room temperature. So if there an a battery you have to put away and not use it till you darn well need it then its a Duracell D Cell Alkaline battery.  So here is the awesome flashlight to go with the batteries.  This is an "Emergency Light" It also qualifies as a "Room Light" because the cap comes off and it stands up like a candle.  This light is 131 Lumens...which is MORE than bright enough.  Do not get caught in the 'brighter is better' trap.
                                                                                                                

Coast HP17TAC High Performance Focusing 615 Lumen LED Flashlight with Tactical Strobe $66.55  * NEW *
If you do want to play the brighter is better game, then this flashlight from Coast will do it.  Preppers, the $25 maglight above is PERFECT.  It will light your house and work area just fine. If you are Law Enforcement or Search and Rescue then you might consider this flashlight because it too uses 3 D Cell batteries but its 615 Lumens, about 3x more than the maglight flashlight.  This light also focuses from a bright FIELD of light, lights a whole room up EVEN, to a spot light that goes the distance.  For preppers on a budget, don't get this.

                                                                                                                

Rayovac Sportsman LED Lantern $28.79  * NEW *
There are 1120 reviews of this on Amazon, 855 are 5 or 4 Stars !!
You need 3 types of lights. 1. Small Light: 1/2 watt or less (30 lumens or less) flash lights for doing small things.  Reading, looking in drawers, walking around the house etc..   2.  Emergency Light: 2, 3 watts or more LEDs, 80, 180, 250, 400 lumens for finding lost children in the night type of stuff.   3: Room light or Area Light.  Something you can put in a room with 4 people and light the place up decently because you are going to be there and you have energy to spare.  If are charging D Cell batteries from your car, you have energy to spare.  This lamp uses 3 D cell batteries and will use the D Cell Tenergy batteries above just perfectly.  This is a 'room' type of light. Max output is 240 lumens.
                    

Coast 4 D Cell 375 Lumen LED Lantern w/ Varible Brightness $37.99 * NEW *
I had to put this up here because the light is so awesome.  The Rayvac is awesome too, and at a better price.  The advantage of the coast is not that its brighter, but it is, but its got a varible brightness knob on it.  You can turn it up and down to any brightness you like.   Historically I have always liked Maglights, Rayovac Lights and I've been using Coast lights since 2006.   Coast is an even higher quality than maglight, but don't forget, maglight is more than good enough.  This lantern also uses 4 D Cells where the Rayovac uses 3 D cells.
                 

Lights of America 2326LED-LF4-24 4-Watt Power LED G16 Globe Bulb, Bright White $9.65
4 Watts is MORE than enough in a dark room.  This has a light output of about 240 lumens, that's brighter than many 80 lumen tactical lights.  When you use this bulb you are SIPPING energy off the inverter and the car battery.  That is what you want to do.  You are not trying to light the whole darn house like it was before the blackout.  You want 'enough' light in the room.  Put one of these in 5 rooms and you're drawing 20 watts.  This LED bulb will do it well.  I've used it for several years.  This is an excellent "Room Light"  Note: on Amazon it says its a 2 watt light, its really a 4 watt light.  See below for real 2 watt LED lights.
 

3 Pack Lights of America 2426led-lf3 2.5 Watt Power LED Globe Light Bulb, Warm White $25.00
These are EXACTLY the same light bulb as above, but its a 3 pack to save you money.  2 is 1, one is none, 3 is better !!
 

Feit Electric 2 WATT Accent LED A15 Bulb, Clear $11.80
This is fast becoming one of my new favorite LED light bulbs.  I have had this burning in my bedroom constantly for about 2 months and so far its rocking.  This really is a 2 watt light bulb putting out the same light as a 25 watt light bulb.  Its light output is 150 lumen, a typical tactical flashlight on a gun is at least 80 lumens, so this is bright.  This is the clear bulb, so you get to stare directly at the bright LED's, if you don't like this, then get the FROSTED VERSION of this Light Here.
 

7 Watt LED Bulb, Warm White $10.99
This LED bulb is about 400 lumens (4x brighter than above) and its almost what I could call 'too bright' because its using 7 watts when you could be using 2 watts.  However if the above light is sold out, get this one, its a good bulb and it'll really light up a room.  Might be a better bulb to use if you had to work on something like a car.  If you had to use an incandescent bulb to make this much light, it'd be about a 60 watt bulb.  So this is very efficient. This is an excellent "Room Light"
 

PowerGen Dual Port USB 2.1A 10W AC Travel Wall Charger for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3, iPhone 4 4s 3Gs 3G, iPod Touch And More Devices $9.99
This is a HIGH output USB charger, it outputs 2amps from one USB port and 1 amp from the other.  Most cheap USB chargers output only 0.5 amps.  This is a great one I have been using for a while.  It charges up my android phone in 1 to 2 hours.  Its small, compact and has a dim blue LED that lets me know the thing is working. This unit is well made and Harris approved.  Click Here for the White Vesion.
 

PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w Travel Wall Charger with Swivel plug for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3, iPhone 5 4s 4 3 3Gs, HTC Samsung Motorola Android Phones - white $14.99  * NEW *
The charger above was my long time favorite, and I still use it daily, its in all of my videos and next to my bed however the same company has now come out with a higher power charger.  The one above could do 2 amps from 1 port or 1 amp and 1 amp from 2 ports.  This one will do 2amps and 1 amp at the same time from 2 ports.  It only comes in white.  The one above is smaller and for most people the 10watt version will work just perfect.  Click Here to get the BLACK version of this.
 

PowerGen Dual USB 2A 10w (fast) Heavy Duty Ouput Car Charger - White $9.99
This is made by the same company as the charger above, this is a 12 volt charger to charge your high power USB devices from your car.  This too has a 2amp and 1amp charger ports on it.   I use this all the time, it charges  my android phone very well, make sure you have plenty of cables (and spares) from the cables I have listed below.  Also, I prefer my chargers to be WHITE so I can find them in the dark / low light easier than a black charger.  Click Here for the Black Version.
 

PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w High Output Car Charger - White $12.99  * NEW *
Made by exactly the same company as above, this is the NEWER 15 watt version.  The above one will run 2 amps from 1 outlet or 1 amp and 1 amp from 2 outlets.  This one will do 2 amps and 1 amp from each outlet.  Click Here for the Black Version of it.
 

New Trent iTorch IMP52D 5200mAh External Battery Charger for ANYTHING USB! (Improved version with 15% more compact size at 5200mAH than IMP500) $33.95
This is a portable rechargeable lithium battery, you charge it up from your car or home and then you can later charge up your phone or ipad from it.  Its a HUGE battery.  An iphone4 has a battery that is 1420mAH, this is 5200mAH.  That's over 3.5x as big.  A smaller cell phone would have a 750mAH battery in it, so you can recharge that with this about 7 times.  I like this one, its the right size physically, its big brother at 12,000mAH is a lot bigger, and I think its too big, but it'll power your iphone for an entire week.  This is something I use about once a week, because that is about how often I forget to plug in my android phone at night to charge it up, so in the morning when I'm leaving, I need something to charge the phone as I'm out and about.

Your cell phone or smart phone is a life line of communications, contacts, information and tools.  This will keep your phone running when a disaster happens as well as allowing you to store energy for your cell phone during an extended disaster.  Before I started using this one, I was using this DURACELL ONE for about 1.5 years, I had 2 in my truck all the time, but this one is my favorite one now for the price and size, the Duracell ones were only about 1800mah.  5200mah for $34 is better than 1800mah for $19
 

Azend Group Envizen Digital  7-Inch Handheld Digital TV/DVD Player with Built-in Tuner, Carrying Case and Car Adapter $91.30
OMG this thing came with EVERYTHING.  120V power, DC 12 volt cable, antenna, antenna adapter, video IN cables (for game system) plus its a DVD player.  I have been looking for a portable TV for over a year, and they ALL STUNK.  I could not get one, could not recommend one till I found, bought and played with this one.  It draws ONLY 9 Watts of power.   Its reception is "DARN GOOD" with the little antenna that comes with it but I bought THIS ANTENNA for $8.50 With the external antenna (the $8.50 one) this thing picks up a huge amount of channels, and the TV even came with the antenna adapter to go from a large external antenna (coax screw) to a push type F connector.  This is NOW MY Storm and Disaster TV.  THIS SHOULD BE YOUR #1 STORM AND DISASTER TV, and its a DVD player for the kids too.  9 WATTS...that is an insane small amount of power.  The TV also has an internal battery will last 2.5 hours...but with me it'll always be on one of my external batteries.   TV will be your #1 source of news and information in a disaster.  If the 7" one is sold out, get the 9" version here. This TV will be your #1 TV, I guarantee it.  I cannot say how BEYOND IMPRESSED I am with this thing.

Wagan 4-Way 12V Automotive Socket Extender $10.46
Invariably you are going to plug in more than one thing into your car's 'cigarette lighter' or 'power port' and you are going to want a very good, strong and sturdy power outlet.  You plug this into your car outlet and now you have 4 heavy duty power outlets.  This has been one of my favorites for years, it features big contact plates inside that are all nickel plated and the case is made of a strong plastic.
 

Roadpro 12V Battery Clip-On and Cigarette Lighter Adapter $5.02
If you have a car old enough it might not have a 12 volt power outlet in it that is on all the time, it might require the key to be in the 'on' position, which draws a lot of other power, so you don't want to do that.  You just open your hood, clamp this on your car battery and you have a cigarette lighter power outlet ready to go.  Plug in the inverter, run the power cord inside the house, plug in your cell phone and LED lights and small fans and you have light, communications and cooling.

USB 2.0 A-Male to Mini-B Cable (6 Feet / 1.8 Meters) $5.49
This is the same cable above but it is a USB to USB-MINI cable and the one above is a USB-MICRO cable.

You need an AC and a DC charger at home, in your car and at work.  You need a set at all 3 locations.  That way you move the phone from location to location, there is always a charger there.  If you are at work, and you have to hop in a car with someone else, then you have a DC cable you can take with you.  If you are at home and your home charger dies... then you have a spare in your car.  2 is 1 and 1 is none.  This cable (6 feet) is long enough for you to talk on the phone while its being charged from the wall or car.
 

Micro USB Retractable Cable - Ideal for Any Micro USB Powered Device
Its only 2.5 feet long, but its compact as heck, convenient as heck and durable a s heck.  I just got back from a weekend of conventions and I carried this in my pocket with the Trent iTorch Battery (above) and ended up using it with this cable for half the day on my android phone because I used it so much from 6am to 9pm each day that the battery would  not last.  This cable is long enough to talk on the phone from the Trent iTorch, its long enough to charge the phone at night, to charge the iTorch at night, its NOT long enough to talk on the phone w/ it plugged into a car adapter. 
 

StarTech 1, 3 or 6-Feet Micro USB Cable - A to Left, Right Angle Micro B or Straight Angle  $5.79

I have a new favorite cable supplier, just click on this link  You can get a cable that goes into your android micro USB charger port at a LEFT angle, RIGHT angle, or Straight, you can get it 1 foot long, 3 feet long or 6 feet long.  You pick and choose what fits your and your phone the best and its on this page.
 

APPLE Power Cable - HQ - black long sync & charge (6ft) cable made for Apple (iPad / iPhone / iPod). Our cable is APPROVED & Licensed by Apple. $9.99
Have an Apple iPhone ?? You MUST have SPARE CABLES!  You at least want one at home, in the car and at work.  Its great fun to have a bunch of power ability only to have a dead phone because your cat ate though your power cable...not that..my cat...has ever done that  :) 

This is a very high quality apple iphone/ipad/ipod cable, and approved by Apple itself.   Yes, there are some cables that are cheaper, but look at their feedback, they stink, there is  nothing more expensive than a cheap cable!
 

NewAir AI100S Portable Ice Maker (White) $169.95
oh stop it.  People are yelling at me all the time that they must have SOMETHING to keep stuff cold in a disaster.  Ok.  This is my favorite item for making COLD.  I've been using it since 2007.  Its an ice maker.  Its average draw when making ice is only 120 watts (I measured it myself).  It has a brief spike to 750 watts for exactly 2-3 seconds when it turns on its heater to get the ice cubes off the ice cube maker.  So you need to run it on the 800 watt inverter above.  Your car will need to idle for about 30 minutes out of every 60 minutes you are using this.  (read more below under (BLACK))
<HARRIS PHOTO> High Res Photo of the Ice cubes in my ice maker HERE

NewAir AI100S Portable Ice Maker (Black) $169.95
This is the most efficient way to keep stuff cold and to 'make cold'.  You use electricity to directly make ice with this unit, making cold air in a freezer to freeze ice cube trays is a horrible waste of energy.  This makes ice directly from contact the  refrigeration evaporator.  You make the ice, then you put it in a really good "5 Day" cooler and keep your food / beverages cool.  OR you put the ice directly in your drink, that is the most efficient.   It makes 26.4 lbs of ice a DAY (24 hours), So about 1 pound per hour, it holds just over 2 pounds of ice, so get the ice out every 2 hours.  It makes its first ice in about 10 minutes.  I am drinking a drink with ice  made from one of these as I am typing this.  These ice makers are Harris approved.  You'll love the heck out of one.  I use one everyday except in the winter.

Superior Pump 91250 1/4 HP Thermoplastic Submersible Utility Pump $47.99
This pump only draws 460 watts so it will work off an 800 watt inverter or bigger just fine.... or you can carry buckets up the stairs.
OMG... if you have a sump pump then you know exactly my feeling when I say that NOTHING will screw up your day FASTER than sump pump that is NOT working.  I have a 1/2 HP sump in my basement, but that's mounted permanently all the time.  If that one stops working then I have this great little 1/4 HP sump pump to drop in the hole (well) to pump out the water.  This pump has a 1 1/4" inch pipe thread on it plus it has an adapter that comes with it so it can pump to a garden hose.  This is the #1 best selling sump pump on Amazon.  If you don't have a back up sump pump, get one !  Get this one or get one at Harbor Freight.  They are TOO MUCH at Home Depot or Lowes.  Also, if you  need to fill up your emergency water barrels in your pickup truck from a lake, river or stream.. this IS the pump to do it with from your inverter.  If this sump ran for 30 seconds, every 15 minutes (in a storm) then on a typical marine battery it would last for over 2.5 days
 

120 Assorted Car Truck MINI Fuse 5,7.5,10,15,20,25,30 AMP $8.45
These are the  MINI fuses... the smaller ones than the bigger ones you might be thinking of.  Most new cars take these.  Just look in your owners manual, look in the fuse box and see if they are about the size of a quarter (Maxi Fuses- large ones) or the size of a dime (the mini ones).
 

120 Piece Car Fuse Assortment (MAXI FUSES) $9.95
These are the  MAXI fuses... the larger ones that older cars will take.  These are about the size of a quarter, or just a bit smaller.  Again. look in your car manual for what size they take.

CAR Fuse Puller Tool $4.77
Those fuses can be wedged in the PDB (Power Distribution Box) pretty tightly and close to each other.  This little tool makes it a lot easier to pull them out to see if they are blown or to remove and replace the fuses...especially those darn mini-ones.

P3 International P4400 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor $20.28  * NEW *
Hey..want to know how much power your appliance is using so you know what type of inverter to us on it, and whether you need the car to idle.  Get this power meter and measure how many WATTS (W) and Kilowatt HOURS (KWH) your appliance is using. KWH is total power used over time, WATTS, your maximum watts drawn determines what size inverter you use.  When the refrigerator kicks on, you'll see the spike in power draw for 2 or 3 seconds, then you'll see the amount of power being used as it cools.  This is an indispensible tool.    There is a newer version of the meter HERE for $26.52.  I have one of each one ever made, and I still use this $20 version one the most.
 

Oster 5838 ExpressBake Breadmaker, White COOL TOUCH $67.98  * NEW *
This bread maker makes bread like a washing machine washes cloths.  Put the stuff in, push the button, come back  in 58 minutes and you have 2 pounds of HOT bread READY to eat.  Flour, water, sugar, salt, yeast.  THAT'S IT.  This is the bread maker that I've used for 6 years and feature in the 90 minute video: Bread from Gasoline (on http://www.USH2edu.com ) You can  make 32 POUNDS of bread from 1 gallon of gasoline and a generator.  I also show in the video how to make this off your car battery. Imagine that.. fresh HOT bread from WHITE FLOUR (stores forever, at all grocery stores) and from your car / truck battery.  Next to my tortilla emergency bread trick, this is the most awesome.   If you don't think this is the most darn awesome bread maker you ever had I'll buy it off you.  I have 4 of them... maybe 5.  I have to look and I use them in every LIVE Preparedness class I give... I feed everyone in the class.
 

Casio Men's PAG240-8 Pathfinder Amazon Exclusive Triple Sensor Tough Solar Digital Watch $189.99 * NEW *
Would you believe, that because of TSP, I've had several people write me to ask me what watch I wear ?? Who'd of thunk ?  I wear a Casio Pathfinder Triple Sensor SOLAR powered watch.  I must of had it for 5 years, and this is the newer one than the one I have.  NEVER have a battery issue because its Solar.  Actually in dead of winter when sun is so low I've had to put it in the window for an afternoon to get a good charge for a week or two of operation.  I've used the compass function on a regular basis and I've used the barometer tracking feature to tell me of the pressure is rising or falling so I know what the weather is going to do.  I am very hard on watches and phones, so everything I buy is DURABLE.  $190 is not expensive when you think of having it for 10 years or more.

I also use Ballistic Phone Cases  for my Android and Otter Box Phone Cases for my wife's iPhone.  Now you know too much about us. :)

Here is the Fuels & Fuel Storage
stuff Jack and Steve were talking about on TSP
Show #11

PRI-G Fuel Stabilizer- for Gasoline
16 ounce bottle. Treats up to 256 gallons $29.89

PRI-G Fuel Stabilizer- For Gasoline
32 ounce botttle. Treats up to 512 gallons $44.95

This is my favorite fuel additive to making gasoline more stable in storage.  You add 1oz of PRI-G per 16 GALLONS of gasoline ONCE a YEAR and your fuel will stay good.  Listen to me talk about it on the show, current record holder has 12 year old gas for large backup generator that is fine after 12 years of storage.  This is an excellent solution to the issue of long term storage of fuel.
 

PRI-D Fuel Stabilizer- for DIESEL
16 ounce bottle. Treats up to 256 gallons $29.89

PRI-D Fuel Stabilizer- For DIESEL
32 ounce botttle. Treats up to 512 gallons $44.95

Diesel fuel is an incredibly stable fuel for storage, its the preferred fuel for long term storage, however diesel fuel can have a fungus grow in it that just makes an ugly scum that will plug up everything.  PRI-D prevents the fungus, bacteria and algae from forming and keeps your fuel clear and clean.
 

15 Gallon Water Storage Barrel $49.95
This is what a 15 gallon HDPE water barrel looks like.  Its tall and narrow, a bit shorter than a 55 gallon drum and a whole lot smaller.  This drum is made of EXACTLY the same plastic as a red 5 gallon plastic gasoline can is.  This drum will hold gasoline PERFECTLY.  This drum full of gasoline will weigh about 100 pounds, just heavy enough that if you are strong you can still heft it up and move it or roll it around and stand it up where you want it.  The drum is incredibly durable.  Its expensive here on amazon but it lets you see it, try to find it locally around where you live.  Go to maps.google.com and type in Drums and Barrels City, State and it'll find the local suppliers around you.  If you have to, you can order it here....but it'll be a lot cheaper to find it locally.
 

Single Ended Non Sparking Aluminum Drum Bung Nut Wrench, 10-1/2" Length $19.35
This is NOT my favorite bung wrench, but its the cheapest one I'd use, there is actually a nylon one for $12 but I would  not use it, the solid one piece casting allows you to get a real tight seal on the bung of the drum.
 

Polished Zinc Cast Steel Drum Bung Nut Wrench with Angled Handles, 12" Length $34.04
Despite this description saying its zinc coated cast steel, I think this one is one piece cast aluminum.  I've never seen a steel one, all of the ones I have are solid aluminum.  This bung wrench has 4 heads on it which will fit any type of drum you can possibly find... plus its got 2 wrenches built into the handle.  This thing is heavy enough to be a weapon.  It'll last a life time, you won't break it.  This is the one I have and use the most and I am telling you this is the one you should get.
 

3/8" Fuel Primer Bulb $18.93
MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE 3/8" BARB ON THE BULB !
This is a fuel priming bulb that you'll find on most fuel tanks feeding an outboard motor for a small boat.  You squeeze it and it moves the fuel.  This takes the place of you sucking on a hose to get the siphon action going.  Just squeezing this bulb gets the fuel flowing and then you just let it siphon from the 15 gallon drum or 5 gallon tank and into your fuel tank of your generator or vehicle.  Note:  The drum or tank needs to be HIGHER than what you are siphoning into.   Fuel won't siphon up hill, it goes down hill only.  So set the fuel tank in the bed of the pickup or on the roof of the car or just put one drum on top of another drum to get it higher than the fuel tank.  You can find these bulbs at Walmart or anyplace that sells boat supplies....or you can get it right here on Amazon.com
 

Fuel Line Hose, 3/8" x 25 feet $22.49
This is automotive FUEL LINE.  Its rated for gasoline, or diesel, it'll last forever, its heavy and thick.  The 25 foot spool here on amazon is a GREAT price, or you can go to Action Auto, Auto Zone, Pep Boys or any other car parts place and get it by the foot.  For 15 gallon drums, I suggest a 4 foot piece on the suction side and a 6 foot piece on the outlet side.  I do NOT even use hose clamps to hold the hose on because it stays on so tight, plus if I want to I can quickly swap lines to make one longer and one shorter or to put on a longer piece of hose.

Here is the Generator & House Hook Up
stuff Jack and Steve were talking about on TSP
Show #12 & Show #13

US Wire 74100 12/3 100-Feet SJTW Yellow Heavy-Duty Lighted Extension Cord $54.99

The above is the 100 foot cord... if you need a 50 foot cord then get the 50 foot 12/3 cord for $34.95

One 100 foot cable and one 50 foot cable should be good for most people, that way you can run up to 150 feet any way you want.  You might run 50 feet into your house and 100 feet into your neighbors house or you just might need all of the distance for yourself, especially if you have an electric chainsaw (which I love, because they are so simple, and always work without gasoline).  If you must have a 25 foot cord there is one for $22.92 but I do not think its necessary, for that short of a distance a 14/3 orange cord will work fine.  Most of you will be FINE with 14/3 orange extension cords from Home Depot but if you want the premium and the best, then this is the extension cord for it.  It is very durable with a thick cover.  Yes.. I own all of these.
 

Yellow Jacket 2806 10/3 Heavy-Duty 15-Amp SJTW Contractor Extension Cord with Lighted End, 100-Feet $162.07
If money is not an issue and the weight of the cable is not an issue then get the 10/3 cord.  Its 3x the  price of the 12/3 cable and the 12/3 cable will work FINE for you to run power from your generator and into the house if you have a 100 foot run that you have to do.  Mostly this is up here so you can see the difference between 10/3  12/3 and 14/3 and 16/3 extension cords.  If you want the 50 Foot 10/3 cable its only $83.29
 

Coleman Cable 02309 16/3 Vinyl Outdoor Extension Cord, Orange, 100-Feet $26.95
This is a 16/3  16/3  16/3  16/3  CORD !!  It is THIN and LIGHT.  At walmart they have a 120 foot version of this cord and its green.   This is designed for a LIGHT LOAD, thus, you don't need all that copper and weight.  Usually this is used for electrical law equipment, like a weed whacker, they don't take very much power.  If you have an 800 watt or 400 watt or 150 watt inverter, its not sending out very much power either.  Why do you need a thick cable to run from the inverter on your car and into the home ?  You don't.  For those light loads this cord will work fine.  It's lighter and longer and cheaper.
 

3-grounded Outlet T-shaped Adapter, Orange $4.89
I told you that you'd recognize what I was trying to describe on the radio as soon as you saw it.. this is it.  Stack these up into each other to make the best, most heavy duty outlet strip you've ever had.  Use these to split off extension cords that you run into your house from the generator or inverter that is outside.

Right Angle Wall Tap - 3-Outlet Splitter - UL Listed - Behind Furniture $4.81
This adapter will work just as good as the one above, but will look funky when you start to plug a bunch of them into each other.

Yamaha EF2000iS 2,000 Watt 79cc OHV 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator (CARB Compliant) $989.10
The Honda EU2000i is not on Amazon.com but the Yamaha is, and this is an incredibly good inverter style generator.   Read the feedback on this thing on Amazon, its got a 5 star rating and very few 4 or 3 stars and no 1 or 2 stars and that's with  98 reviews !  This is a top of the line quiet generator.  If you want quality, light weight, portable and quiet, this is the brand line to get.   Most  all of us agree, that at 2000 watts this is the sweet spot.  You can carry it, it's got a good fuel tank, 2000 watts is enough for a lot of stuff in a house and its not as expensive as the 3000 watt ones and higher.  This one weighs 49 pounds.
There is also the 1000 watt version that weighs just 33 pounds $791.10

 

Yamaha EF3000iSE 3,000 Watt Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator With Electric Start (CARB Compliant) $2199.00  its 3000 watts, it comes on wheels so its easy to move around.

Yamaha EF4500iSE 4,500 Watt Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator With Electric Start (CARB Compliant) $3059.10  4500 watt version

Yamaha EF6300iSDE 6,300 Watt Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator With Electric Start (CARB Compliant) $3689.10 comes with 120 and 240 volt output.  This one can be feed your entire house with a transfer switch because its 240 volts.  If you are going big, you might as well get this one over the 4500 watt one.  This is the generator you'd use to feed the Inlet box, cord and transfer switch below.  Its got to be 240 volt AC generator.
 

Reliance Controls PB30 L14-30 30 Amp Generator Power Cord Inlet Box For Up To 7,500 Watt Generators $41.07
Instead of having a 'suicide' cord like I talked about in the TSP Show on Generators and how hook up your generator to your house, through all methods both dangerous and illegal to the correct and legal ways of doing it, this box is the start of one of the ways of doing it 100% legal and to code....but you have to have an interlock on your panel to prevent this socket from getting energized....because you can stick your fingers in here if its energized and get shocked to death, the idea is, this socket is dead, and you are plugging in from your generator to this socket and into the electrical panel of the house. There are 3 DETAILED PHOTOS of this box installed in a house with a generator, click the link and LOOK at them.
 

Reliance Controls PC3040 40-Feet 30-Amp L14-30 Generator Power Cord for Up to 7500-Watt Generators $99.99
This  is the L1430 cable you would use to plug into the 240 Volt AC outlet of your generator and INTO the above Inlet Box.

The above is the 40 foot cable, this link is for the 20 foot cable $68.00

Reliance Controls TCA1006D Panel/Link 100-Amp Utility/60-Amp Generator Transfer Switch For Up To 15000-Watt Generators $99.99
I have a video below of a big huge 200 amp transfer switch so you can see what it looks like, this is the smaller more modern version of the SAME THING.  Smaller, cheaper, does the same thing, switches out the entire box from the grid and over to the generator.  This is the correct way to do it with the Inlet Box and the Power Cord ABOVE this.
 

DuroMax XP10000E 10,000 Watt 16 HP OHV 4-Cycle Gas Powered Portable Generator With Wheel Kit And Electric Start $999.00
This generator is 240 volts, as well as 120 volts, its got very high ratings and feedback on Amazon, this is a 10KW generator so it will power your entire house through the transfer switch above and the inlet box and cables.  I do not own this generator but I would personally buy one based on the price, the output and especially the reviews on Amazon.  I own a $1000+ Honda EU2000i, but I recognize that is not an option for all of you, so I put this up here for you.  You are getting 10kw for the same price I paid for the Honda EU2000i, that is because the Honda is a 'inverter generator' and this is what I call a 'regular generator' make sure you listen to my TSP show on generators.
 

DuroStar DS4000S 4,000 Watt 7.0 HP OHV 4-Cycle Gas Powered Portable Generator $299.99
A simple, regular generator, like I talked about on the show, at a good price, with very good reviews on Amazon.   Its 120 volts ONLY so it CANNOT be used to feed the above panels and inlet connectors.  You'll have to use extension cords to do it the 'safe' way.  I do not own this generator but I would personally buy one based on the price, the output and especially the reviews on Amazon.  I own a $1000+ Honda EU2000i, but I recognize that is not an option for all of you, so I put this up here for you.
 

Sportsman 7000-Watt 13 HP OHV Propane Powered Portable Generator $999.99

Do you have a 250, 500 or 1000 gallon propane 'pig' sitting outside your house for your stove and furnace??  Well than you have a tremendously large amount of fuel stored that will NEVER go bad.   You should be able to take advantage of that.  This is a PROPANE ONLY generator.  Does NOT run on gasoline, does NOT run on natural gas.  This generator DOES have 120 volt AC and 240 Volts AC output on it so you can power your entire electrical panel and your entire house.  See my Generator Show #2 (above) regarding the different ways of hooking this up to the house.  Don't forget to change the oil every 100 hours !!  Have spare oil and the ability to change it.
 

Champion Power Equipment 2,000 Watt 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator (CARB Compliant) $595.00
The Yamaha inverter generator is the top of the line generator, its also $400 more than this one.  Champion has seemed to of done a really good job at making a nice inverter generator at a decent price.   Its got nothing but great reviews.  If you need a nice small 2KW, very quiet, very portable generator sent to you quickly because a storm is coming, this is the one.   If you want a more economical inverter generator, then this is the one, if the top of the line Fijitsu is sold out and you need a generator sent overnight to you now by Amazon Prime...then this is the one.
 

Conntek 20611 Generator Power Cord 25-Foot 10/4 30 Amp 125/250 Volt 4 Prong Male Plug To 15/20 Amp Female Connector $85.99
Like Jack says, do NOT go cheap on your power cables, its something you WILL regret and keep your power cables for your generator and emergencies in a dedicated box next to your emergency power setup. THIS cable is for going from the 240 output of your generator and it splits it into TWO seperate 120volt AC circuits.  If you are not using the 240 volts to feed your entire electrical panel (listen to the show!) then you'll want some extra 120 volt AC output.  This will augment the 120volt AC that is already coming off your generator.
 

Emergency Natural Gas Hookup for a Generator *DANGER*
This is the hookup I talked about, and WARNED NOT TO DO on my Generator #2 TSP Show.   Its can be confusing to listen to this over the radio show if you CLICK HERE (or on the photo) I will show you all of the details, parts and pieces of what you should NOT DO.

Suicide Electrical Cables for Back Feeding a House from a Generator or Inverter
As I talked about in DETAIL in the show, these are called suicide cables for a reason.  They have 120 volts or 240 volts exposed on prongs on both ends of the cable.  Plus they can overload the single circuit they plug into and that can heat up the wires or connectors and burn down your entire house.  Click on the link and I'll show you some of the connectors that are used to make these cables... and I'm telling you to have a certified electrician install a Legal Transfer Switch at your panel to safely switch the power over.
 


 

STUPID STUFF
DO NOT BUY - DO NOT BUY !!

I give you examples of what to purchase, and WHY, and what my
experience is with them but I keep on getting emails about other things.
A lot of these things are STUPID and so now I'm giving you a list
of STUPID things and telling you why they are STUPID so you can
make better, more informed decisions when you see stuff in stores.
I'M SERIOUS - DO NOT BUY !!

Energizer Solar Rechargeable 9-LED Lantern $31.51
I'm sure some of you are salivating over this solar powered, flashy, shiny gadget.  Prepping is not about 'gadgets' its about knowledge and tools.  This is worthless solar Junk.  Look at the specs.  It runs for 165 HOURS on 3 D cell Alkaline Batteries.  If those are Duracells that's about $3.00 in batteries.  If it runs that light for 165 hours when fresh, it'll run the light for 132 hours in 8 years when the batteries reach their "date" and are at 80% of original capacity.  So 3 bucks gets your over 100 hour of light over the next 8 years.  Yet this 'gadget' has a "Suckered you into it" solar panel that will give you 2.5 Hours of LIGHT *IF* the solar panel gets a GOOD 5 hours of PRIME sunshine on it.  That means pointed at the sun, no clouds, summer sunshine.  Remember the sun is NOT the same brightness all day, so 5 GREAT hours of sunshine is about all you get in a day...maybe a bit more depending on the time of year, so a good day of sunshine gets you 2.5 hours of light at night and that's when you need a good 8 hours of light.  SUCKS...its a stupid gadget.
 

Solar 11-in-1 Battery Charger $24.98
Oh WOW... it charges AA, C and D Cell NiMH on its built in Solar Panel.  This has 'sucker' written all over it.  Lets look at the specs, 5 volts from the panel, so it can really do 2 batteries at once, not 3, not 4 and its a MAX of 140ma output.  That means MAX, summer, noon, pointed at the sun.  Its not computer controlled so its charge efficiency will be low, 75% would be generous.  AA NiMH Batteries are about 2000mah, at 140ma @75% efficiency that would take 19 prime solar hours to charge 2 AA batteries.  There are about 6 'good' solar hours in a day (sun rise, noon, sun setting) so that means this would charge your 2 AA batteries in about 3 days if you kept it pointed at the sun every 30 minutes.   D cell NiMH batteries are about 10,000mah so that would take 96 hours to charge, which would be about 2 weeks of solar tracking to charge them up.  Seem like a good solar idea now?

 

Midland XT511 GMRS Two-Way Emergency Crank Radio $89.99
(heavy sarcasm) OMG how could it get any better, its an FRS & GMRS 2 way radio, its a NOAA weather radio, its an AM/FM radio, it even has 3 LED's in it for a flashlight, and it has a clock and an alarm clock and it has a USB port and it runs on 4 AA batteries and it even has a HAND CRANK feature in it so I can wind it up, wind it up, wind it up, wind it up (tired already) if there is no power.  Plus its called a 'Base Camp' radio.  How cool is that, now I can call "Red 5 this is Red Leader, Red 5 this is Red Leader, Come in Red 5".  Now I've seen 'some' crank up AM/FM radios that are decent.  It does NOT take a LOT of power to run an AM/FM radio on RECEIVE.  It takes a LOT of power to run a transmitter.  There are $20 GMRS radios that beat the crap out of this, that's all you need, is a good GMRS radio (and I have a site coming for that) and NOT a bunch of junk thrown all in, into one gadget for $90 with a crank on it.  The more things you see put together into one item, the more you should RUN AWAY from it.
 

 

American Red Cross FRX3 Hand Turbine NOAA AM/FM Weather Alert Radio with Smartphone Charger - Red  $54.99
Even if this has 5 stars on Amazon, I'd NEVER recommend it to anyone.  Its 5 pounds of crap put into a 1 pound plastic box.  Oh it looks and acts really great when you are testing it, but when it comes time to really use it you'll find that 'crank' feature and your arm is not the light saber you thought it was.
Its got 'crank power', 'solar power', and "AAA battery" power.  Its an AM/FM and weather radio WITH a clock and an alarm clock <wow> plus its also a flashlight and best of all (quiet please) it has a USB port to charge your "Smart Phone".  First of all, the solar panel is so small its going to take a week of sunshine, full sunshine, just to charge up its little internal battery.  Second it 'says' that it will power your phone for 30 seconds of calling with 1 minute of cranking.  Its probably more like 5 seconds of calling with 1 minute of cranking.  12 minutes of cranking, 1 minute phone call.  You are literally looking at 10+ hours of cranking to charge an iphone.  Plus this 'thing' is $55 and you can get a perfect AM/FM radio for less than $10 [ Link to be inserted Here ].  Combine that with your car inverter (see class above) with the USB Charger to FULLY charge your iphone in an hour or two, and get the AA Eneloop batteries (above) and the PowerEx AA/AAA charger (above) you really now have an infinite supply of radio and light (flash lights above) and cell phone talking.  This just a 'pretty gadget' for suckers.
 

Ambient Weather WR-111B Emergency Solar Hand Crank AM/FM/NOAA Digital Radio, Flashlight, Cell Phone Charger with NOAA Certified Weather Alert & Cables $39.99
Everything I said above is true for this unit, stay away from these 'cranking miracles'.  Its no light saber.  10+ hours of cranking to charge your iphone, with the iphone OFF! while you are doing it.  This thing has 607 reviews on it, and I'd still NEVER tell you to get it.  This is from one of the 1 Star reviews, listen to what these FOOLS did, "Yesterday during the worst of Hurricane Sandy we were without power. We plugged our cell phone into the charger and started hand cranking. We're handy people and we take care of our equipment, so we were careful. First there was a creaking noise, some resistance and a burned smell. Then the crank jammed and broke off. So we were without cell and without radio in the emergency situation for which we bought it!"  They literally thought these dumb piece of plastic was going to keep their cell phone charged by cranking on it.  Never did they try it, never did they do it.  They just established a false sense of security into themselves because the 'bought a box'.

Amateurs train until they get it right. Professionals train until they cannot get it wrong.

The 1 Gallon Moonshine Still that Makes car fuel, its automatic,  Free video to watch on how to do everything is right here:
http://www.iMakeMyGas.com
If I was in a country where it is legal to make moonshine (illegal in USA to drink, but legal to make car fuel w/ free permit) then what I'd do is make moonshine and store it for a disaster, because it would trade as good as gold does.

We have Stills IN STOCK and are shipping them DAILY (for now).  Get them while we have them in stock.  You'll have it on your door step by UPS pretty quickly (No PO boxes please, USA Orders ONLY)

  Harris Tip #1 
Modified Sine Wave vs True Sine Wave Inverters ???

Why did I not mention true sine wave inverters in my show ??  Because it does not matter.  Modified sine wave works JUST FINE.   DO NOT believe all of the stories on the net related to modified sine wave and electronics and regular motors !!  Electronics, especially laptops and TVs run PERFECT on modified sine wave inverters.  Take it from me, I've done it since the early 1990's.  I Steven Harris, do not own one true sine wave inverter nor do I need to spend 3x the money to get one.  This web site is about what WORKS.

Cobra CPI 480 400-Watt 12-Volt DC to 120-Volt AC Power Inverter with 5-Volt USB Output $29.30
This is as simple as it gets, an inexpensive 400 watt inverter on a marine battery with a battery charger.  The foundation of your energy backup and supply for small lights, small TV, radio, cell phone charging, ipad charging, AA recharging and more.  If price is an issue then this is what you get and where you start.  This inverter also has a place for you to screw it down to something.  Other 400 watt inverters do not.
<HARRIS PHOTO2> See what I do with this. Click here.
 

Cobra CPI 880 800 Watt 12 Volt DC to 120 Volt AC Power Inverter with 5 Volt USB output $48.65
Its my professional judgment that 800 watts and 1500 watts are where the sweet spot is for price and performance.  For $19 more than a 400 watt inverter you get twice the output.  This helps you with surges from refrigerators or freezers and running a higher output from your car IF you have to.  Notice this inverter can be screwed down.
 

Cobra CPI1000 1000W 12V DC to 120V AC Power Inverter with USB Port $77.17
There are only 2 reasons I would buy a 1000 watt inverter.  1st one is they are out of 800 watt inverters.  The 2nd reason is if I wanted a display.  The front of this inverter has a voltage and wattage LED display.  The 800 watt inverter does not.
 

Cobra CPI 1575 1500 Watt 12 Volt DC to 120 Volt AC Power Inverter $104.87
1500 watts is the major sweet spot for price and output.  For $100 to $130 you get 1500 watts of output.  This is about the same output as one circuit in your house.  Its more than enough power.  If I run an electric chainsaw on mine when mobile, it'll power most stuff in your house just fine.  Keep in mind that 1500 watts is a lot of power and it will suck down your batteries quickly, but if you only need 15 minutes to brew a pot of coffee, this will give you enough juice to do it quickly.  This inverter also has the voltage and wattage LED display on the front.
 

Cobra CPI 2575 2500 Watt 12 Volt DC to 120 Volt AC Power Inverter $165.19
If 1500 watt inverters are out of stock, then get this one if you must.  Some people want to over size, and this one will do that.  This inverter is physically bigger than the 1500 watt inverter, you'll need 0 AWG wires, 3 foot ones, no longer.  However, your application might demand something bigger than the 1500 watt inverter, so I put this up here as an option for you. This inverter also has the voltage and wattage LED display on the front.
 


 


  Harris Tip #2 
Cobra VS Whistler & Other Inverters.
Both are low priced inverters.  I'm using the 400 & 800 watt Cobra in my video, and the 1600 watt Whistler in the battery video.  Both have really great reviews and some negative reviews, mostly from people who don't know what they are doing and plug a coffee pot (huge load 1100+ watts) into a 400 or 800 watt inverter and expect magic to happen.  One of the big difference is that most ALL inverters can handle a surge of TWICE their power rating.  So 400 can handle 800, 1500 can handle 3000 watts etc...   Difference between the two is the amount of time.  The Cobra manual says the surge time is 0.1 Seconds.  In reality, its probably a second or less.   The Whistler is known for handling up to a FULL 10.0 seconds of surge.  This is all over the net, but funny, not in their manual.  I have to call the factory.  This can make the difference between starting your refrigerator or freezer and not starting it.  Both are very good low end inverters that will work fine for you in most situations. 

Xantrex made a good inverter, but they discontinued their whole line I was using and are only concentrating on more high end inverters now.  Duracell liked Xantrex so much they licensed their design and manufacture them under the Duracell name....but they are just not available in volume, only here and there.  So I'm stuck with owning, testing, using and presenting to you the Cobra and Whistler inverters.
 


 

Whistler Pro-800W 800 Watt Power Inverter $49.01
Its my professional judgment that 800 watts and 1500 watts are where the sweet spot is for price and performance.  For $19 more than a 400 watt inverter you get twice the output.  This helps you with surges from refrigerators or freezers and running a higher output from your car IF you have to.  Notice this inverter can be screwed down.  This inverter does NOT have a display on it.
 

Whistler Pro-1600W 1,600 Watt Power Inverter $128.39
1500 watts is the major sweet spot for price and output, and this one is 1600 watts.  For $100 to $130 you get 1500+ watts of output.  This is about the same output as one circuit in your house.  Its more than enough power.  If I run an electric chainsaw on mine when mobile, it'll power most stuff in your house just fine.  Keep in mind that 1600 watts is a lot of power and it will suck down your batteries quickly, but if you only need 15 minutes to brew a pot of coffee, this will give you enough juice to do it quickly.  This inverter also has the voltage and wattage LED display on the front.

Whistler Pro-2000W 2,000 Watt Power Inverter $157.98
If the 1600 watt inverter is out of stock, get this one, its only $29 more.  If you want the extra 400 watts, then get this one.  This inverter also has the voltage and wattage LED display on the front.

Whistler Pro-2500W 2,500 Watt Power Inverter $191.17
Some people want to over size, and this one will do that.  This inverter is physically bigger than the 1600 watt inverter, you'll need 0 AWG wires, 3 foot ones, no longer.  However, your application might demand something bigger than the 1600 watt inverter, so I put this up here as an option for you. This inverter also has the voltage and wattage LED display on the front.
 

Whistler Pro-3000W 3,000 Watt Power Inverter $299.00
I'm not really sure why you'd spend $108 more for just 500 more watts over the 2500 watt inverter.  I have this to illustrate how you can use a little intelligence in purchasing an inverter to get the most ability for the best price. This inverter also has the voltage and wattage LED display on the front.
 


 

Whistler IC-2000W 2 Gauge Power Inverter Cables $29.22
For hooking up your 1200, 1500, 1600 watt inverter you want 2 gauge or 0 gauge connectors, 3 FEET Long.  For 2000 watts or more you want 0 gauge wire. (smaller # is bigger wire).  I show you how to make these in the video with 2 guage wire from Home Depot ($1.97 / foot) and some connectors from Walmart, and how to solder them together, but I find it easier just to buy the cables.  If Sold out - get these
2 AWG Cables #1 - or this 0 AWG  Cables (3 Foot)  if you want the bigger ones.  If for some reason you need the 0 AWG Cables in 6 foot length they are here.

Duracell 400 Watt DC to AC Digital Power Inverter $39.73
I like the Duracell inverters because they have a display for the voltage and wattage output but there are decent 400 watt inverters everywhere, at Walmart too.  This one is Harris Approved.  Use it as your 2nd inverter on your home battery bank (2 is 1, 1 is none) or use it on your small battery bank system.  It'll do just fine.  On my home battery bank, this one is ON all the time, the 1600 watt inverter is OFF, and an LED light is always connected to this one and ON all the time so I can find it when the power fails.  The 400 watt inverter comes with BOTH the cigarette lighter plug cable AND the battery clamp cables.
 

Duracell 800 Watt DC to AC Digital Power Inverter $69.99  IF this is SOLD OUT on Amazon, get the Cobra ABOVE!
The 400 watt one is only $10 less, this is 800 watts and is a much better buy, runs at 150 watts through the cigarette lighter or 800 watts when clamped on the battery.  Leave the car idle and you can run your refrigerator or freezer (one at a time) on this inverter.  The BEAUTIFUL thing about this inverter is the display, it gives you the voltage in, out and POWER (in watts) that you are drawing at the time.  So you know if you are sipping power and can leave the car off all night or if you are being a power HOG and have to leave it idle.  Nothing like instrumentation.  (IF the 800 is sold out, get the 400 at the alternate link !!! -Steve ).  The 800 watt inverter comes ONLY with the clamps that go to the car battery.  It does NOT come with cigarette lighter plug cable.
 

BESTEK 150 Watt Power Inverter WITH 2 USB 3.1A charger $21.09
This is one of the sweetest little inverters I have found.  It puts out 150 watts AC (the most you can via just a cig lighter socket) AND it has TWO USB outputs and ONE of the outputs is 2.1 amps (for iPads and new smart phones) and it has a 1amp socket for all other USB Charging.  Note: cheap USB chargers are 0.5 amps, this one is 2.1 and 1.0.   If you can only afford to get one inverter, get this one.  You'll have to charge your phone / pad in the car and not in the home, but that's better than no charge at all.  You can still run an extension cord from here to inside the house to run some LED lights or SMALL fans. Don't even think of powering your refrigerator or freezer from this, get the 800 watt one above.  If your car does not have a 12 volt power outlet that is always on, then you'll need to get the RoadPro 12V Battery Clip On Adapter Below (its $5.02)

  Harris Tip #3 
NEVER EVER buy a worthless "Trickle Charger".  
NEVER trust the recharging of your battery bank just to a "Solar Panel".  Buy one of these REAL chargers.  Computer controlled, 3 stage battery chargers that have the ability to FULLY charge and maintain a marine battery, car battery, golf cart battery etc...
 

Schumacher SE-1555A Automatic Elite Wheel Battery Charger $99.97
its NOT as big as you think it is, its only about 18" tall. It just looks like one of those big roll around chargers, but that is what the output of this one is. 55 AMPS DC into the batteries.  Its a computer controlled 3 stage smart charger.  This is the one you get if you have 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 golf cart batteries in 1 bank and you want to put energy back in them as fast as you can from a generator, or other power source.  If you just have 1, 2, 3, or 4 marine batteries, you don't need this charger.  This is also available at Walmart, at Sears under the Diehard brand, but at a higher price.
 

Schumacher PSC-12500A DSR ProSeries 125/15-40/2 Amp 6/12 Volt Automatic SpeedCharge Hybrid Battery Charger/Starter $91.10
The problem with the 55amp SE-1555A above is that you can't pick it up with one hand.  You can the 30 amp xc103 below.   I'm starting to think that this 40AMP "PRO" series one Schumacher is selling is a very very happy medium between the 30 amp charger and the 55 amp charger.  The 55 amp charger might work just great for home..but it stinks for it to go into the tool box of your mobile battery bank I tell you how to make.  I think this might be the best charger to go into your mobile power box.. .why is there a charger in your mobile battery bank box ???   See what I do in the video below... you will be impressed.
 

Schumacher XC103 SpeedCharge Battery Charger with Engine Start $72.08
This is the 30 amp version of the above, and its small and light.  One hand easily picks it up.  Its a computer controlled 3 stage smart charger.  This is the best charger you'll need if you just have marine batteries for a battery bank.  This is all MOST of you will need.  It is also the charger that I put in the rear box of my truck in case I want to charge my mobile battery bank, or truck batteries, from ONE ANOTHER, or from the house or a generator.  You'll have to see the video.  Its very flexible.  This is also available at Walmart, at Sears under the Diehard brand, but at a higher price.
 

Schumacher SC-10030A SpeedCharge Automatic Charger and Maintainer $78.65
If you can't get the XC103 30 amp charger above.  This is the SAME THING just in a different case.  Its the one they made before the XC103 and they are still selling it.  The BOTH have the SAME features.  EITHER will work perfect for you.  If the XC103 is sold out, or you can't find it, or if this is the only one you see in Wal-Mart, then its fine. 
 

Schumacher XCS15 SpeedCharge Ship 'n Shore Battery Charger $46.62
Ok. So you are on a budget, and you have 1 new marine battery or one old car battery.  Get this charger, its 15 amps, it'll charge your battery up.  Then use a 400 watt watt inverter on the battery, the Road Pro clip on battery adapter and the wagan 4 way outlets.  Plug into here your phone car DC charger, or into the inverter your phone AC charger.  You can also run some 5 WATT or LESS CF bulbs or LED bulbs on the inverter for a long time.  1 battery, 1 charger, 1 inverter, some DC outlets and you'll have extra battery for your phone, tablet, radio, SMALL TV (like 12", or 7" or 4" screen) and a few small lights.
see the LED bulbs. I have not seen this charger on local store shelves.
 

Schumacher XC12 SpeedCharge 12 Amp Battery Charger $44.86
If you can't get the XCS15 above, then this 12 amp version of it will work for you just fine.  They both have a display on them and the same features, one is just for the 'marine' market and one is not.  So one is blue, and one is grey.  This charger is also 12 amps instead of 15, but you won't notice the difference.  I have NOT seen the XC12 at local Walmarts.
 

Schumacher XC10 SpeedCharge 10 Amp Battery Charger $39.74
If you are further down on a budget and want no frills, then this charger will work for you.  Its a 10 amp charger and will charge up a marine battery all the way for you.  Its very budget oriented. This is also available at Walmart, at Sears under the Diehard brand, but at a higher price.
 

Schumacher XC6 SpeedCharge 6 Amp Battery Charger $29.77
This is even lower in price, its a 6 amp charger and will charge up a marine battery all the way for you.  Its very budget oriented.  Under NO circumstances would I go lower than a 6 amp battery charger.  DO  NOT buy 1 or 2 amp 'trickle chargers' EVER.  They are not intelligent and they usually end up destroying a battery PLUS they NEVER have the ability to bring a discharged battery back up.  This is also available at Walmart, at Sears under the Diehard brand, but at a higher price.
 

(QUIET) Marinco Battery Charger 2608A Marine $71.62
There have been a FEW people who live in apartments and actually have their battery and charger sitting next to their desk and they have complained about the fan noise of the chargers.  They are quiet, but you can hear them.  Some people have wanted a 100% silent, no moving parts charger and this is one of those.  It does not hum, it does not have a fan.    This one is only 6 amps, which is enough to keep your battery charged.  Its an intelligent 3 stage charger as well.  If you want its 10 amp bigger brother then click here.
 


  Harris Tip #4 
Under NO circumstances would I go lower than a 6 amp battery charger.  DO  NOT buy 1 or 2 amp 'trickle chargers' EVER.  They are not intelligent and they usually end up destroying a battery PLUS they NEVER have the ability to bring a discharged battery back up
 

Optima Batteries 8052-161 D31M BlueTop Dual Purpose Battery $224.46  (75Ah)
I think it would be better for you to get 2 GC2 Golf Cart Batteries, or a Duracell AGM battery, or a Duracell or Energizer Marine Battery (all from Sams Club).  However, if you are forced to buy one here then this is the top of the line.  Optima Spiral Wound AGM batteries are famous for durability, long life and depth of discharge.  Technically the blue top is their marine battery, however for a home battery the blue or the yellow will work fine.  These batteries NEVER need their fluid checked or filled.  They are 100% sealed.  These are PERFECT for an apartment so you'll have no acid issues.

Read what I have for the yellow top below, but a 31 Group Marine Battery from Walmart will only cost you < $100.  Its not an AGM battery, but its a good flooded lead acid battery and will do the job.  Expect 5 years of life from it.
 

Optima Batteries 8050-160 D31T YellowTop Dual Purpose Battery $229.24 (75Ah)
The Optima Yellow top is for  deep draining applications like RVs and Cars with a lot of accessories on them.  These batteries NEVER need their fluid checked or filled.  They are 100% sealed.  They are so 'acid safe' that its legal to ship these on a plane.

You WILL find cheaper Optima batteries in Sams or Costco but they are NOT the D31 series batteries I  have here, they'll have a smaller capacity and will be 55Ah or 38Ah


If you insist on getting a top of the line battery that will last 10 years, that UPS will deliver to your door step in 2 day for free (if you are Amazon Prime Member) than this is the one.  One of these and the chargers above, plus a 400 watt inverter and some DC outlets will give you all of the cell phone, ipad, small TV, radio, AA recharging you could want for a disaster.
 

Exide XMC-31 MEGACYCLE AGM-200 Sealed Maintenance Free (AGM) Marine Battery $188.25 (83Ah)
Like the Optima AGM battery this is an AGM battery so it is 100% sealed.  are are 100% 'acid safe'.   This is also a Group 31 battery.  The largest of the standard battery sizes you can get.

This is a good battery that offers a little more capacity at a little lower price than the Optima batteries.   This 73 pound battery is an Amazon Prime item and it will get shipped to you (if you are a prime member) for FREE in 2 days.  It will show up overnight for $3.99 extra and on Saturday for $8.00 extra.
 

Moeller Injection-Molded Marine Battery Box (One 27, 30 or 31-Series Battery, 13.44" x 7.75" x 10.5") $17.10
If you have to have everything in a box and a box for everything then you can put your battery in this box.  Its not that the battery needs a lot of protection, but it does have side handles that helps you lift it, it also prevents anything from shorting out the battery from the top, life if you drop a wrench on it.

This box can be an exceptionally good option if you have a 'FLOODED" deep cycle or other NON-AGM battery in your house or garage.  You can strap down or tape down the box lid and that can help keep little hands and paws away from the battery.   This would make a flooded battery more acid safe, but not as acid safe as an AGM battery.
 

Battery Cables 2/0 AWG in Red, Black, 6 inch & 12 inch
I show you how to make your own battery cables with wire from home depot and connectors from an auto store or on amazon (see below) however IF you do NOT want to make them and you just want to buy them now, then buy these cables, and I found them in RED and in BLACK for you.  These are 2 AWG cables.  THEY ARE THICK and what you need especially if you are running a 1000+ watt inverter.  If you are in a hurry, BUY the cables.

For connecting 6 Volt Golf Cart Batteries together you want 6" cables.
Click on the cables below that you will need.
6 Inch 2/0 AWG RED Cable
6 Inch 2/0 AWG BLACK Cable

For going form 12 volt battery to 12 volt battery you want 12" cables
12 Inch 2/0 AWG RED Cable
12 Inch 2/0 AWG BLACK Cable

If you are just running a 200, 400 or 800 watt inverter, you can use the cheaper
Sealed Power 4 AWG 19 Inch Battery Cable $9.85 to connect together your batteries.
 


 

Grape Solar GS-S-100-TS 100 Watt Monocrystalline Off-Grid PV Solar Panel $277.00
Listen Luke, this ain't your light saber.  It a 100 watt panel AT MOST, at high noon, in the summer time.  The 30 amp charge controller below is putting about 400 watts of power into your batteries BUT IF you are going camping, or far away, and your truck is going to sit and be your battery bank then this will help charge up your battery bank all day long in the sunshine without you having to turn on your vehicle to charge the batteries.  MANY MANY people wanted a solar option so I am including this in the podcast and the video.  Lots of places to get solar panels on the net, but this is the one I selected to use on the videos and in this project.
 

Sunforce 60032 30 Amp Digital Charge Controller $99.04
This is the main charge controller that is going in between the batteries in the front of the vehicle (and alternator) and your battery bank in the back of the vehicle.  This will ISOLATE your back battery bank from your front battery bank. (see video or podcast for why).   This will also very accurately and carefully charge your rear batteries with the voltage from the alternator when the car is running or you are driving down the road.  Its a charge controller, charging batteries is what it does.  Available on net and at Marine Stores at much higher prices.
<HARRIS PHOTO> See what I do with this. Click here.
 

Sunforce 60031 10 Amp Digital Charge Controller $34.78
This is exactly the same controller as above but this is a 10 amp charge controller.  This is for the solar panel that is on the truck to be used for charging the battery bank.  You COULD put a big DPDT switch in front of the 30 amp controller and switch between the alternator and the solar panel, but a good DPDT switch is at least $20, then there is at least 6 connections on the switch and where to problems come from ?? switches and connections !! I think its simpler just to have 2 charge controllers.  If the 30 amp takes a dump you can also use this 10 amp one to charge the battery bank from the vehicle.

Sunforce 7 Amp Charge Controller $17.37
If you don't want to spend the $35 above for the nicer charge controller for the solar panel, this is a good simple one at half the price.  Get this.  It just as a few LED's on it but it lets you know what is going on.  There are lots of generic < 10 amp solar chargers out there.  Some are at harbor freight, but I selected this one for its quality and for its price.

 

Schumacher PC-6 120AC to 6A 12V DC Power Converter $17.54
Picture this.  Your car is in the apartment parking lot, you have a 120 foot 16 gauge cord running from the inverter in your car up to your 3rd floor apartment (or maybe 240 feet !).   You have LED lights, your phone chargers and other stuff running on the 120volts...but for some reason, you need 12 volts DC in the apartment.  Maybe you want to run  a CB Radio, maybe something you have only has a car charger on it.  This is what you plug into the 120 volt AC cord running into your apartment/house so you can have some 12 volt DC power.
 

Azend Group Envizen Digital  7-Inch Handheld Digital TV/DVD Player with Built-in Tuner, Carrying Case and Car Adapter $91.30
OMG this thing came with EVERYTHING.  120V power, DC 12 volt cable, antenna, antenna adapter, video IN cables (for game system) plus its a DVD player.  I have been looking for a portable TV for over a year, and they ALL STUNK.  I could not get one, could not recommend one till I found, bought and played with this one.  It draws ONLY 9 Watts of power.   Its reception is "DARN GOOD" with the little antenna that comes with it but I bought THIS ANTENNA for $8.50 With the external antenna (the $8.50 one) this thing picks up a huge amount of channels, and the TV even came with the antenna adapter to go from a large external antenna (coax screw) to a push type F connector.  This is NOW MY Storm and Disaster TV.  THIS SHOULD BE YOUR #1 STORM AND DISASTER TV, and its a DVD player for the kids too.  9 WATTS...that is an insane small amount of power.  The TV also has an internal battery will last 2.5 hours...but with me it'll always be on one of my external batteries.   TV will be your #1 source of news and information in a disaster.  If the 7" one is sold out, get the 9" version here. This TV will be your #1 TV, I guarantee it.  I cannot say how BEYOND IMPRESSED I am with this thing.

Roadpro 12V Battery Clip-On and Cigarette Lighter Adapter $5.02
If you have a car old enough it might not have a 12 volt power outlet in it that is on all the time, it might require the key to be in the 'on' position, which draws a lot of other power, so you don't want to do that.  You just open your hood, clamp this on your car battery and you have a cigarette lighter power outlet ready to go.  Plug in the inverter, run the power cord inside the house, plug in your cell phone and LED lights and small fans and you have light, communications and cooling.
A nice version of this can be found at Radio Shack as well but it costs 2x as much.
 

Wagan 4-Way 12V Automotive Socket Extender $10.46
Invariably you are going to plug in more than one thing into your car's 'cigarette lighter' or 'power port' and you are going to want a very good, strong and sturdy power outlet.  You plug this into your car outlet and now you have 4 heavy duty power outlets.  This has been one of my favorites for years, it features big contact plates inside that are all nickel plated and the case is made of a strong plastic.  Only place you might find this (other than here) is at Harbor Freight.

PowerGen Dual Port USB 2.1A 10W AC Travel Wall Charger for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3, iPhone 4 4s 3Gs 3G, iPod Touch And More Devices $9.99
This is a HIGH output USB charger, it outputs 2amps from one USB port and 1 amp from the other.  Most cheap USB chargers output only 0.5 amps.  This is a great one I have been using for a while.  It charges up my android phone in 1 to 2 hours.  Its small, compact and has a dim blue LED that lets me know the thing is working. This unit is well made and Harris approved.  Click Here for the White Vesion.
 

PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w Travel Wall Charger with Swivel plug for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3, iPhone 5 4s 4 3 3Gs, HTC Samsung Motorola Android Phones - white $14.99
The charger above was my long time favorite, and I still use it daily, its in all of my videos and next to my bed however the same company has now come out with a higher power charger.  The one above could do 2 amps from 1 port or 1 amp and 1 amp from 2 ports.  This one will do 2amps and 1 amp at the same time from 2 ports.  It only comes in white.  The one above is smaller and for most people the 10watt version will work just perfect.  Click Here to get the BLACK version of this.
 

PowerGen Dual USB 2A 10w (fast) Heavy Duty Ouput Car Charger - White $9.99
This is made by the same company as the charger above, this is a 12 volt charger to charge your high power USB devices from your car.  This too has a 2amp and 1amp charger ports on it.   I use this all the time, it charges  my android phone very well, make sure you have plenty of cables (and spares) from the cables I have listed below.  Also, I prefer my chargers to be WHITE so I can find them in the dark / low light easier than a black charger.  Click Here for the Black Version.
 

PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w High Output Car Charger - White $12.99
Made by exactly the same company as above, this is the NEWER 15 watt version.  The above one will run 2 amps from 1 outlet or 1 amp and 1 amp from 2 outlets.  This one will do 2 amps and 1 amp from each outlet.  Click Here for the Black Version of it.
 

Lights of America  4-Watt Power LED G16 Globe Bulb, Bright White $9.65
4 Watts is MORE than enough in a dark room.  This has a light output of about 240 lumens, that's brighter than many 80 lumen tactical lights.  When you use this bulb you are SIPPING energy off the inverter and the car battery.  That is what you want to do.  You are not trying to light the whole darn house like it was before the blackout.  You want 'enough' light in the room.  Put one of these in 5 rooms and you're drawing 20 watts.  This LED bulb will do it well.  I've used it for several years.  This is an excellent "Room Light"  Note: on Amazon it says its a 2 watt light, its really a 4 watt light.  See below for real 2 watt LED lights.

3 Pack Lights of America 4 Watt Power LED Globe Light Bulb, Warm White $25.00
These are EXACTLY the same light bulb as above, but its a 3 pack to save you money.  2 is 1, one is none, 3 is better !!

Feit Electric 2 WATT Accent LED A15 Bulb, Clear $11.80
This is fast becoming one of my new favorite LED light bulbs.  I have had this burning in my bedroom constantly for about 2 months and so far its rocking.  This really is a 2 watt light bulb putting out the same light as a 25 watt light bulb.  Its light output is 150 lumen, a typical tactical flashlight on a gun is at least 80 lumens, so this is bright.  This is the clear bulb, so you get to stare directly at the bright LED's, if you don't like this, then get the FROSTED VERSION of this Light Here.

<HARRIS PHOTO> See what I do with this. Click here.
 

7 Watt LED Bulb, Warm White $10.99
This LED bulb is about 400 lumens (4x brighter than above) and its almost what I could call 'too bright' because its using 7 watts when you could be using 2 watts.  However if the above light is sold out, get this one, its a good bulb and it'll really light up a room.  Might be a better bulb to use if you had to work on something like a car.  If you had to use an incandescent bulb to make this much light, it'd be about a 60 watt bulb.  So this is very efficient.
 

Home Design, Juicy, 15 Inch Tall, Desk Lamp, Chrome/White Acrylic Details $21.92
I have a lamp here...sounds silly.  Lots of people don't have 'lamps' or the lamps are not suited for taking a low wattage LED or CF light bulb and putting "Light On The Table."  So I searched high and low for the right type of lamp to use a low wattage light bulb in an emergency and this gooseneck lamp is perfect.  It can shine light on something, or sideways or bounce it off the ceiling.  This is keep it simple at its best.  This lamp is also available at Wal-Mart and other stores for the same price or cheaper.  Keep your eye out for stuff like this at yard sales or thrift stores.  This light is sitting on my desk right now as I write this.
 

Bayco SL-512 12-Volt 13-Watt Fluorescent Work Light $12.54
For Home Battery banks, I always want the smart charger ON, maintaining the battery 24/7 and I usually want you to have a LIGHT ON powered by the battery 24/7.  When the power fails, its easy to find your battery bank.  You might not want to leave an inverter on all the time to power an LED or CF light bulb, in that case, this light works on direct 12 volts.  It'll stay on all the time and if your inverter takes a dump, wire gets loose, something goes wrong, you have a light AT your batteries that you can use to diagnose what is wrong.

Equus 3721 Battery and Charging System Monitor $16.74
I like simplicity and this is simple.  Its on EVERY battery bank I have ever done and friends and students have done.  It just sits there plugged into a cigarette power outlet on your battery bank and it tells you at a glance with RED, Yellow or GREEN PLUS  what the state of your battery bank voltage is.  Plus it has a great backlit LCD display volt meter giving you a very accurate voltage reading...but with just a quick glance at it as you are going by it you know that you are in the green.  If you see this turn yellow or red, you know something is draining your batteries.  This use to be available at Walmart, but now they have a new one I don't like as much.

E-Z Red S101 Battery Hydrometer $8.64
A volt meter might fool you, a charger might fool you, but there is one thing that will never fool you as to if a flooded lead acid battery is charged, and that is a Hydrometer.  It measures how 'thick' or 'heavy' the acid in the battery is.  You pull the caps off each cell, and suck up the acid into this gauge (not batteries needed) and it tells you the state of charge of that particular cell.  If all cells are REALLY charged, it will so it.  If you have a bad cell, it will be very evident when you use this. A battery with a bad cell will not be very good for you.  This tool is especially important if you are using 'harvested' batteries or older batteries of an unknown source.

 

Plews 75-030 Auto Shut Off 2 Quart Capacity Plastic Battery Filler $13.88
This thing makes  LIFE so EASY when it comes to filling up a battery!   It automatically STOP at the right level.  You cannot overfill the battery.  The STOP at the end of the filler SHUTS OFF quickly so there is NO DRIPPING battery acid!!  Yeah.  You get the unit over your battery vent, you push down, your distilled water flows in and it stop at the right level and it does not drip.  How much easier could you want it to be.   This is a must have item especially if you have golf cart batteries.  If you have Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries, or Gell Cells or AGM batteries, you do not need this.  Only deep cycle marine batteries, car batteries and golf cart batteries.
 

Superior Pump 91250 1/4 HP Thermoplastic Submersible Utility Pump $47.99
This pump only draws 460 watts so it will work off an 800 watt inverter or bigger just fine.... or you can carry buckets up the stairs.  This is an over 30 gallon per minute problem solver!!  Lets see you do 6 five gallon pails of water up your basement stairs a minute.

OMG... if you have a sump pump then you know exactly my feeling when I say that NOTHING will screw up your day FASTER than sump pump that is NOT working.  I have a 1/2 HP sump in my basement, but that's mounted permanently all the time.  If that one stops working then I have this great little 1/4 HP sump pump to drop in the hole (well) to pump out the water.  This pump has a 1 1/4" inch pipe thread on it plus it has an adapter that comes with it so it can pump to a garden hose.  This is the #1 best selling sump pump on Amazon.  If you don't have a back up sump pump, get one !  Get this one or get one at Harbor Freight.  They are TOO MUCH at Home Depot or Lowes.  Also, if you  need to fill up your emergency water barrels in your pickup truck from a lake, river or stream.. this IS the pump to do it with from your inverter.  If this sump ran for 30 seconds, every 15 minutes (in a storm) then on a typical marine battery it would last for over 2.5 days
 

Makita UC3530A Commercial Grade 14-Inch 15 amp Electric Chain Saw with Tool-Less Blade And Chain Adjustments $199.99
You now have a mobile battery bank in your truck (from video above) and you are trying to get out of Dodge to get to your mothers, your children, you wife or to the hospital and the road is blocked!!  Now you know why Steven Harris says, "When a disaster happens, you are stuck right where you are." but Steven  Harris told you how to make a mobile battery bank and now he's telling you that this electric chain saw and your mobile battery bank and 1500+ watt inverter will run this chain saw incredibly awesome and you can cut up any tree in your path, get a rope on it, and pull it out of the way with your truck, and you can get to where you need.  NO GAS needed, NO oil mix, no pulling and pulling and pulling.  Just plug it in and rip through the wood with your inverter and battery.   Truly, this is the closest you are going to get to a light saber.  I own and use multiple electric chain saws for 20 years.  I love 'em.
 

MinnKota MKR-19 Circuit Breaker 60A Waterproof $35.94
We are going to run a twisted set of thick wire from the front battery of your car / pickup to the battery bank in the back.  If that set of wires gets hit by a high rock, or curb you are going over or it gets shorted together you'll have a dead short on your vehicle battery and the wire will glow red and melt and short circuit worse and easily cause a vehicle fire.  Instead of putting in a fuse, also listed here, I'm using this circuit breaker.  That way if it shorts, the breaker will switch everything off.  Its water proof so it can go under the hood of the car. Amazon and the internet is the only place I've seen this.
 

Coleman Cable 16-Foot Heavy-Duty Truck and Auto Battery Booster Cables with Polar Glow Clamps, 4-Gauge $39.95
There is hardly anything worse than a cheap pair of jumper cables.  These are heavy duty 4 gauge jumper cables.  These are 16 feet long, go to this page and you can select from the drop down menu a pair of 25 foot cables.  I suggest the long ones.  I show how to use jumper cables and your car to recharge your battery bank in the Battery Bank Video (above). Not only can these be  used to charge your home battery from the car, but if the car battery is dead, you can jump the car from your marine battery you have at home.  Without a pair of jumper cables, your car and your battery bank are 2 separated worlds that cannot help each other.  Connect them together and have 2 is 1, 1 is none.
 

Bucket Boss Jumper Cable Bag $12.30
Jumper cables are made of copper, and copper likes to corrode and when it does it does not make as good of a connection as when its fresh and clean.  Keep your valuable jumper cables you just purchased out of the rain and weather and keep them protected.  Get this nice simple bag that keeps them all wrapped up and stored easily so when you need them you can get to them fast and use them and KNOW they are going to work and are in good condition.

3M Scotch Super 33+ Vinyl Electrical Tape, .75-Inch by 66-Feet $4.74
Next to duct tape, electrical tape fixes everything.  If you solder two wires together and don't have the time or desire to put heat shrink tubing around them then you wrap them up tight with electrical tape.  It'll work and work good.  If its a connection for a few months or a year or two...electrical tape will work, if its a connection you are making for 10 years..then use heat shrink tubing.  Available at all hardware stores or big box stores.
 

American Terminal AT-31604 60-40 Rosin Core Solder (4 Ounces) $7.25
How can you solder two wires together without solder.  Since I had the irons and the heat shrink tubing here, I put the solder here as well.  Might as well get all the stuff at once.
Available at all hardware or big box stores.  Make sure its ROSIN CORE or you'll have to get solid solder and a thing of flux to dip it in.

Neiko 175 Pieces Solderless Wire Terminal & Connection with Wire Stripper Crimper Tool $11.38
This video, podcast and page is all about batteries and inverters and with those you have wire.  This little kit is a great option for putting 2 wires together if you are not going to solder them and then shrink wrap them.  This is normally a neater connection than a wire nut, but not as fast to do.  Its a good kit to have incase you are going to have to make some modifications or fixes.  Way more money for this at Radio Shack.  Harbor Freight might have something like this.  I used this kit several times while making the battery bank videos, especially for hooking up a cord to the light base for the LED light in the mobile battery bank.  Its a bargain and a huge time saver.  If you are going to make a mobile battery bank, as I say in the video, get TWO of these kits.  They will save you a fortune over buying these at Home Depot or Ace Hardware!
 

Iso-Tip #7971 SolderPro 50 Butane Soldering Iron $25.95
This is probably one of my favorite soldering irons, its also at Radio Shack.  You can see the propane in the clear bottom.  I almost never use an electric soldering iron any more because I don't want to wait for it to warm up.  This warms up in seconds, ready to go in 10 seconds or less, puts a lot of heat onto what I solder, which now is mostly wires, and not delicate circuit boards.  This is the perfect soldering iron to have in the field.  Runs on cans of butane you use for any cigarette lighter that you get from Walmart or anywhere.
 

Weller P2C Butane Soldering Iron $32.79
Weller is known for the finest soldering irons in the world.  They make a VERY nice butane one that you see here.  If you can't get the one above, then get this one.  Or if you just prefer Weller, get this one.  This does not have a clear portion to see the propane.

Worthington WT2201 Basic Brass Propane Torch $9.99
Those butane soldering irons above WILL solder 2 AWG and 0 AWG wires to terminals, but I don't like to wait around, I want it hot and I want it hot now.  So in the video you see me using this propane torch.  Its at Home Depot, Lowes & Hardware stores for about the same price. Some more, some less.  The BEST one you could buy would be this one.

Shoreline Marine Battery Marine Terminal Kit (Red/Black) $8.06
Marine batteries usually come with either 2 posts or 2 posts and 2 screw downs.  Either way, with inverters we are usually hooking up to the screw downs, so if you need more, you just put these around the posts and you have them.  These terminals are bare metal (not painted) and therefore you can also CLAMP onto them with big CLIPS that are on 400-800 watt class inverters, or with clips that you might have going to a standard cigarette lighter power outlet.  Like the RoadPro one on this page.  Also available at Walmart in the auto section.
 

Sealed Power 4 AWG 19 Inch Battery Cable $9.85
In my video, I show you how to make cables, but if you don't want to do that and just want cables to but 6 volt batteries in series to make 12 volts, or if you want to put 12 volt batteries in parallel to have more capacity (more Ampere Hours), then these will work fine.
Also available at Walmart in the auto section.

Neiko Wire Nut - Connector Assortment - 107 Pieces, with Plastic Storage Case $8.49
2 is 1, 1 is none and 107 is plenty.  Invariably something is going to go wrong, something break or come loose and you are going to have to join some wire together quickly to get it to work, or to run a power line someplace or whatever.  Duct tape, zip ties, bungee cords and WIRE NUTS are your friend.  No quicker way to make a good mechanical connection between two wires than wire nuts.  This is a great assortment at a great price.  Won't find 'em this cheap in Home Depot.
 

Anytime Tools 48 pc HEAT SHRINK TUBING WRAP SLEEVES ASSORTED SIZES $6.99
Well you've soldered two wires together, instead of using a wire nut, because you wanted a really good mechanical high current connection.  Now you need to cover up that exposed soldered wire so it does not hit something.  Slide over a piece of this heat shrink tubing and heat it with a match, or a cigarette lighter or your butane soldering iron above and it will shrink and hold your new connection and insulate it as good as its going to get.  Very overpriced for this stuff at Radio Shack.
 

Ancor Marine Grade Electrical Heavy Duty Tinned Copper Lugs (all sizes and prices)
You need pretty much 3/8" hole for everything we do on this page.  You'll need (qty 2) 0/2 Gauge to connect from terminal to terminal for each set of golf cart batteries.  You'll need 4 of them to connect a 12 volt battery to a 12 volt battery.   You'll need 6 gauge to connect the battery in the front of your pickup to the battery bank in the back of your pickup.  You get the 0 or 2 AWG wire and the 6 AWG wire from Home Depot or Lowes.  They'll cut it for you in the wire department, just tell them how many feet of it you want.
 

Allway Tool Inc. Mp Stainless Steel Mini Wire Brush Smb Wire/Scrub Brushes $5.53
You can't hook up your mobile battery bank to the front of your vehicle to be charged unless the battery terminals and the nuts and bolts there are nice and clean, or you won't get a good connection.  This wire brush makes quick and easy work of cleaning up the battery terminals under the hood of your vehicle.  You can also buy these in the paint section of Home Depot.
 

MAXCRAFT 7713 O-Ring and Rubber Grommet Assortment, 195-Piece $7.38
I used 1/4" hole grommets, that go into a 3/8" hole, to run the 6 gauge wire from the front battery of the pickup to the rear battery bank.  These grommets are $1.20 each at Home Depot, 4 for $4.99 at ACE hardware and half this 195 piece box are grommets for 7 bucks.  If you are going to run a wire through a case, this is what you want to get.  Its a steal, just order and have it show up and have plenty.  I must of spent $40 on grommets for the video.  Also, here is:
180-Piece Rubber Grommet Shop Assortment $8.88
125pc Rubber Grommet & Plug Assortment $9.99
 

Midland 75-822 40 Channel CB-Way Radio $76.24
In the video I show you how to take DC power from your car or mobile battery bank and how to run that 120 volts from the inverter through a LONG extension cord onto your kitchen table or living room.  There you hook up lights, small TV, AA battery chargers, radio etc... However.. .if you have something that is ONLY 12 volts DC power, and your car is 300 feet away by extension cord, use the Schumacher PC-6 120AC to 6A 12V DC Power Converter $17.54  (above) and convert that 120 volts coming from your car back down to 12 volts so you can run something simple like this CB radio inside your house.   Also.. .if your father in law is at your place, and he ONLY has his car charger for his phone with him...he can recharge his phone at your place during the disaster.   That Power supply has a lot of uses... and this was the CB radio I have in my disaster kit that I have used extensively and used in the video as a 12 volt DC power example.  Make sure you have a GOOD external antenna like this one if you are going to get the radio, it will screw into the handheld unit where the DC cable is. 
 

Equus 3300 Hands-free Digital Multimeter $10.92
In the mobile battery bank video (above) I have you connecting the WAGON 4 WAY DC OUTLET (above) to the mobile battery bank.  To do this, you have to clip off the DC plug and crimp on wire connectors (above) and when you do this you don't know which of the terminals is positive because the wires are black.  So you have to use an OHM meter to check the continuity of the wire to KNOW which one is positive, it takes 10 seconds and is easy, I show you in the video but to do that you need just a simple, plain, easy to use, inexpensive multimeter and this is one of those.  For about $11...you can't go wrong and it won't let you down.
 

RESCUE TAPE Self-Fusing Silicone Tape - BLACK $9.95
OH this stuff is INCREDIBLE.  In the video, I cover up some connections with the 3M Electrical Tape listed above, and its good stuff... but this is so much better.  You wrap it around your electrical connections and it fuses to itself, it become all one piece, just as if you had put a piece of heat shrink tubing over it but a lot easier.   This can be used to fix radiator hoses and other car related stuff, that's why its called rescue tape.  DO NOT test this on your fingers to see if it works, your two fingers will become one.   If you are going to cover up your electrical connections and want them 100% water and salt proof for 10 years or more...then get this stuff.   Get a 6 Pack of the tape for $22.95 Here and get HUGE 2" wide by 36 foot long rolls in any color here
 

Startech HC102 Self Adhesive Cable Tie Mounts (Pack of 100) $10.24
In the videos I use these all over the place to hold down wires and to keep them from flapping around, to run them around the box and to just keep everything nice and neat.  These are adhesive and you can put a wood screw right through the center of them and into the back of the board on the bottom of the lid on the mobile truck battery box.   Get them at home depot or Lowes in smaller quantity (and more expensive) or buy a bunch right here, get some of the zip / cable ties below as well.
 

TEKTON 6233 Cable Ties, 4 inch, 500-Piece, 5 Colors $5.48
I think I paid half this amount for 20 or 50 of these at Home Depot to make my videos...and here you can get 500 of them, in 5 colors for just about $5.  Don't even bother burning the fuel or the time to go to the store to get them, get a 10 year supply of them right here and color code your battery box with these.   These 4" ones are smaller and work PERFECT for the cable tie mounts above.
 

Allstar Performance Universal Two Wire Connector with 12" Loop $4.40
I use this in the video for the mobile battery bank solar panel.  I put one of these connectors on the battery box, and one on the solar panel, and then I make solar panel DC voltage extension cable with 12 gauge red and black wire (twisted in a drill) and put these connectors on them so its easy to plug in my solar panel to the truck, and to have it on any side of the truck I want... I have 25 feet of wire to work with.  You'll need THREE of these to do the mobile battery box.  Two are needed for the project, you need a third incase you mess one up :)   Nah...just get 2 of these.  You'll be fine. 
 

RoadPro RP73002 10" 12V or Battery Dual Power Portable Fan $22.22
If you  listened to me on the TSP show on Battery Banks (above) you heard me clearly say, that you heat or cool THE PERSON.  You don't heat or cool a whole room just to cool you.  A fan blowing on your face works great for keeping you cool, especially when you are running on 1 Marine Battery for your Home Battery Bank.  In the Home Battery Bank Video I show the simplest battery bank which is DC only, no inverter.  This fan will work great for that application.  Its a DC fan....just for you.  It also run off D cell batteries so you can use the NiMH Charger (below) and the Tenergy D cell NiMH rechargable batteries in it and move it around.  Keep it simple.  If you are not going DC only and using an inverter, I suggest you get a 120 volt version of this fan. 
 

10" Swivel Battery Operated Fan with AC Adapter $29.99
This is the same thing as above but it is a 120 volt AC fan AND its a D Cell battery fan, and it takes 8 D cell batteries.   So this would be a good fan for an emergency.  I really think you can get a good 6" or 10" AC fan cheaper from a local store, but its winter here and there are no fans on the store shelves.
Keep an eye out for good small AC fans on sale when its summer time.

Powerex MH-C800S Eight Cell Smart Charger $54.95
This is by FAR my favorite charger, and its a premium one and it does not GOOF UP.  It charges each battery individually, so you can put in 1 battery, 2, 3, 5, 7 or 8 at once. When you put it in, it starts to charge it.  It takes about 1 hours to charge one battery, but you can charge 8 at a time.  8 in 2 hours is about as good as 4 in 1 hour for me.  Also, there is an LCD display for each battery, so you know when each one is charged.  There IS a more expensive version of this one that does charge all 8 in 1 hour BUT THIS one here is my favorite.  The 1 hour charger has a huge power supply that comes with it.  This one has a nice small 'wall wart' power supply.  Jack Spirko has stated to me on the air that this is his FAVORITE AA/AAA Charger as well.  Its Jack and Steve approved !!
 

(8 AA Batteries) Sanyo NEW 1500 eneloop 8 Pack AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries $19.70
This link will let you buy 4 or 8 or 16 or 20 batteries at once, all at a discount.  DO NOT buy the charger they have.  I don't like it.  DO NOT by the "XX" batteries, I have not put those though the ringer like these ones.  I have exhaustively tested the eneloop batteries for years on my lab bench and in all of my personal gear.  They are the batteries I carry the most.  These eneloops can be charged and used up to 1500 times each.  That's a lot of charging.  They have the PERFECT chemistry for a AA NiMH battery.  You can trust and depend on these.  If you want to buy Duracell AA NiMH batteries, buy THEM HERE.  DO NOT buy the Energizer brand of NiMH batteries, they all STINK and are antiquated NiMH technology.  Shame on the pink bunny.
 

(8 AAA Batteries) SANYO NEW 1500 eneloop 8 batteries AAA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries $17.94

I would really really prefer to stay 100% with AA batteries and NOT use AAA batteries, but some handy things (like head lamps - see below) use these AAA's and they are just too awesome to not use them.  Also many of the inexpensive tactical lights use AAA batteries so they are handy for that purpose.  Try to buy things that use AA batteries instead of AAA.  Its not that AAA's are so bad, its just that the AA is so much better and its a lot more standard.

8 pcs of Tenergy D Size 10,000mAh High Capacity High Rate NiMH Rechargeable Batteries $54.06 * NEW *
Some of you have written me and you just REALLY REALLY want D Cell recharable batteries, DO NOT use the AA to D cell sleeves unless its an emergency, because a D cell NiMH is over 4x-5x the charge of a AA NiMH battery.   These are the D Cell Batteries I would buy, but then you also need a special charger for the D Cell NiMH batteries I would buy.
NOTE: these are NOT the "pre-charged" or "stay charged" newer NiMH technology like the Sanyo Eneloopes, you cannot charge these and then go use them months or a year later in an emergency, you must charge them and then use them, and charging a full size D cell like this can take all day.  NEW:  There are NEW Low Self Discharge Versions of this Battery Here.

New C-Cell Low Discharge Tenergy Batteries are here
 

Tenergy V-9688 Super Universal LCD Battery Charger with USB Port $31.99 * NEW *
This charger does AA to D cell size, plus 9 volt batteries.  I do NOT like it as much as I do the POWEREX AA/AAA charger above.  I only use this one for charging D cell batteries, and it can take a good 8 hours, more or less depending on the state of charge of the battery, to charge up D Cell NiMH batteries.   Again, if you are just starting out, get the Powerex above and the Sanyo Eneloop batteries, if you really must have D cell batteries than get the batteries above and this charger.   It'll make a good backup AA charger for you as well in case you break, bash, smash, flood your other one.  2 is 1, 1 is none.
 

Storacell by Powerpax "AA" 12 Pack Battery Caddy, Yellow - Holds 12 "AA" Batteries  $4.95+
These are the most awesome battery holders I have ever come across, I use them all the time, AA, AAA, C, D, 9volt, CR123, you name it, they have holders for the batteries or sets of the batteries. Want to hold 12 AA battts ? they got it, want to hold 6? or 4? they have it.    This link will give you an entire page of ones to choose from.  Stay with the POWERPAX brand, its 100% Harris Approved.

Energizer Trail Finder 7 LED Headlight $17.83

Most of you know I'm not a big fan of energizer, but they have it 100% Correct in this 7 LED headlamp.  Its has red LEDs and lots of bright white LEDs for near and far, it has 4 different modes it switches between and it has a REAL PHYSICAL SWITCH.  So when its OFF, it is really OFF.  Its not 'on' but drawing a small amount of current waiting for you to press the 'on' button.   That is called a 'soft on'.  This head lamp has a HARD Switch that turns stuff 100% on or 100% off.  It has low light mode for long battery life and it has a LIGHT 'EM UP mode for plenty of light NOW.  Its made for contractors so its durable as heck and can take a beating.  It does run on 3 AAA batteries.  I wish it was AA's, but its not.  So make sure you get some of the Eneloop AAA rechargeable batteries above.  This is an excellent "Small Light" and the bright mode is good, but not quite emergency light bright, but close.  If you are running AAA battery items in a small 'kit' then this is the perfect light to go with the Maglight XL-200 AAA Light below.
 

Maglite XL200 LED Flashlight, Black - Brightest Maglight in Existence $34.45  *NEW*
Like the above energizer head lamp, this flashlight runs on 3 AAA batteries.  Its the brightest maglight flashlight  made and its very small and hides in the bottom of your pocket until you want to light up something like its daylight.  This would make vampires run for cover and smoke.  Its 172 Lumens...most tactical flashlights use to be 80 lumen.  This is over double that.  I've been using this flashlight for the last 7 months on a daily basis and have fallen in love with its quality and its performance.  I run this on 3 AAA eneloop batteries all the time.  This main use of this light is for 'finding a lost child'.  Its too much light for normal stuff.  Its an emergency light.  If you are running AAA batteries in a small, portable kit, then this is the perfect flashlight to compliment the Energizer Head Lamp (above)
 

Fenix HL21 White LED Headlamp, 1AA, 90 lumens $30.92 *NEW*
Simple Simple Simple is what this is.  1 AA Battery, 90 lumens (more than bright enough) and a simple ON/OFF and only 1 Strap, and the diffuser flips over the light if desired for close up work.  The Energizer Head Lamp (above) and the Maglite XL200 (above) are BOTH AAA battery powered.  I wanted you to have a AAA headlamp and flashlight option and I wanted you to have a AA headlamp and flashlight option.  So I found and got this AA headlamp and it has been a real trooper for me.  Its going with me when I travel.  One thing I LOVE about it, its got a 3 Lumen mode on it (just necessary amount of light) and it'll run for about 53 hours on 1 AA battery in that light mode.  This headlamp will work good (2 is 1, 1 is none) with the MagLite 2AA and 3AA flashlights (below)
 

MAGLITE SP2209H 2-AA Cell Mini LED Flashlight with Holster $19.99

Well I had to put a AA flashlight in the mix and here it is.  The 2 AA flashlight I use the most, the maglight LED flashlight.  It has a dim mode, a bright mode, a flashing mode and you can unscrew the cap off and use the cap as a base to hold up the flashlight like a candle stick and the bare LED lights up the whole room like a candle would, but it does it for 31 hours on low on 2 AA batteries.
The important thing about this is that it SIPS energy (for 31 hours) on low and it will provide 'enough' light in an entire room or more than enough light when directed onto something, plus its got its bright mode for finding something outside in the dark.  This is an excellent 'Small Light' and a pretty 'emergency light'.  Its an ok 'room light' because the cap comes off and its like a candle.
 

MagLite SP23MRH 3-AA Cell Mini LED Flashlight $21.95 *NEW*
The 2 AA maglight directly above is awesome, its great, its fine.  This one is brighter and it uses 3 AA batteries instead of 2 so its got more brightness, its got longer battery life (because it has 3 batteries) and its a bit longer (by one cell) than the one above.   Also, on Amazon its only available in camo color, but that's cool.   This is a 3 Watt LED light just like what is in their 3D cell flashlights, except it will use your AA recharable batteries, and your alkaline batteries and your AA lithium batteries.  If I had to pick the 3 cell or the 2 cell, I'd take the 3 cell, if weight was imperative like it is for some hikers, take the 2 cell one above. This is an excellent 'Small Light' and a pretty 'emergency light'.  Its an ok 'room light' because the cap comes off and its like a candle.
 

Mag-Lite ST3D016 3-D Cell LED Flashlight, Black $25.25
* NEW
*
We increasingly live in a AA / AAA battery world and we have a great deal of valuable & reliable tools that use these batteries.  a AA NiMH can have ~2200mah of capacity, the above NiMH D cells have 10,000mah and a Duracell D cell alkaline is about 14,500mah and in 8-10 years (the date on the battery) it will still have 82%-85% of its energy if stored at room temperature. So if there an a battery you have to put away and not use it till you darn well need it then its a Duracell D Cell Alkaline battery.  So here is the awesome flashlight to go with the batteries.  This is an "Emergency Light" It also qualifies as a "Room Light" because the cap comes off and it stands up like a candle.
                                                                                                                

Coast HP17TAC High Performance Focusing 615 Lumen LED Flashlight with Tactical Strobe $66.55  * NEW *
If you do want to play the brighter is better game, then this flashlight from Coast will do it.  Preppers, the $25 maglight above is PERFECT.  It will light your house and work area just fine. If you are Law Enforcement or Search and Rescue then you might consider this flashlight because it too uses 3 D Cell batteries but its 615 Lumens, about 3x more than the maglight flashlight.  This light also focuses from a bright FIELD of light, lights a whole room up EVEN, to a spot light that goes the distance.  For preppers on a budget, don't get this.

                                                                                                                

Rayovac Sportsman LED Lantern $28.79  * NEW *
There are 825 reviews of this on Amazon, 782 are 5 or 4 Stars !!
You need 3 types of lights. 1. Small Light: 1/2 watt or less (30 lumens or less) flash lights for doing small things.  Reading, looking in drawers, walking around the house etc..   2.  Emergency Light: 2, 3 watts or more LEDs, 80, 180, 250, 400 lumens for finding lost children in the night type of stuff.   3: Room light or Area Light.  Something you can put in a room with 4 people and light the place up decently because you are going to be there and you have energy to spare.  If are charging D Cell batteries from your car, you have energy to spare.  This lamp uses 3 D cell batteries and will use the D Cell Tenergy batteries above just perfectly.  This is a 'room' type of light.
                    

Coast 4 D Cell 375 Lumen LED Lantern w/ Varible Brightness $37.99 * NEW *
I had to put this up here because the light is so awesome.  The Rayvac is awesome too, and at a better price.  The advantage of the coast is not that its brighter, but it is, but its got a varible brightness knob on it.  You can turn it up and down to any brightness you like.   Historically I have always liked Maglights, Rayovac Lights and I've been using Coast lights since 2006.   Coast is an even higher quality than maglight, but don't forget, maglight is more than good enough.  This lantern also uses 4 D Cells where the Rayovac uses 3 D cells.
                 

New Trent iTorch IMP52D 5200mAh External Battery Charger for ANYTHING USB! (Improved version with 15% more compact size at 5200mAH than IMP500) $32.95
This is a portable rechargeable lithium battery, you charge it up from your car or home and then you can later charge up your phone or ipad from it.  Its a HUGE battery.  An iphone4 has a battery that is 1420mAH, this is 5200mAH.  That's over 3.5x as big.  A smaller cell phone would have a 750mAH battery in it, so you can recharge that with this about 7 times.  I like this one, its the right size physically, its big brother at 12,000mAH is a lot bigger, and I think its too big, but it'll power your iphone for an entire week.  This is something I use about once a week, because that is about how often I forget to plug in my android phone at night to charge it up, so in the morning when I'm leaving, I need something to charge the phone as I'm out and about.

Your cell phone or smart phone is a life line of communications, contacts, information and tools.  This will keep your phone running when a disaster happens as well as allowing you to store energy for your cell phone during an extended disaster.  Before I started using this one, I was using this DURACELL ONE for about 1.5 years, I had 2 in my truck all the time, but this one is my favorite one now for the price and size, the Duracell ones were only about 1800mah.  5200mah for $34 is better than 1800mah for $19
 

US Wire 74100 12/3 100-Feet SJTW Yellow Heavy-Duty Lighted Extension Cord $54.99

The above is the 100 foot cord... if you need a 50 foot cord then get the 50 foot 12/3 cord for $34.95

One 100 foot cable and one 50 foot cable should be good for most people, that way you can run up to 150 feet any way you want.  You might run 50 feet into your house and 100 feet into your neighbors house or you just might need all of the distance for yourself, especially if you have an electric chainsaw (which I love, because they are so simple, and always work without gasoline).  If you must have a 25 foot cord there is one for $22.92 but I do not think its necessary, for that short of a distance a 14/3 orange cord will work fine.  Most of you will be FINE with 14/3 orange extension cords from Home Depot but if you want the premium and the best, then this is the extension cord for it.  It is very durable with a thick cover.  Yes.. I own all of these.
 

Yellow Jacket 2806 10/3 Heavy-Duty 15-Amp SJTW Contractor Extension Cord with Lighted End, 100-Feet $162.07
If money is not an issue and the weight of the cable is not an issue then get the 10/3 cord.  Its 3x the  price of the 12/3 cable and the 12/3 cable will work FINE for you to run power from your generator and into the house if you have a 100 foot run that you have to do.  Mostly this is up here so you can see the difference between 10/3  12/3 and 14/3 and 16/3 extension cords.  If you want the 50 Foot 10/3 cable its only $83.29
 

Coleman Cable 02309 16/3 Vinyl Outdoor Extension Cord, Orange, 100-Feet $26.95
This is a 16/3  16/3  16/3  16/3  CORD !!  It is THIN and LIGHT.  At walmart they have a 120 foot version of this cord and its green.   This is designed for a LIGHT LOAD, thus, you don't need all that copper and weight.  Usually this is used for electrical law equipment, like a weed whacker, they don't take very much power.  If you have an 800 watt or 400 watt or 150 watt inverter, its not sending out very much power either.  Why do you need a thick cable to run from the inverter on your car and into the home ?  You don't.  For those light loads this cord will work fine.  It's lighter and longer and cheaper.
 

Coleman Cable 8-Outlet Power Strip, Heavy-Duty Design, with 6-Ft Cord $22.03
I have been using this outlet for at least 8 years.  It use to be at Walmart, but its not anymore.  Its just an awesome outlet strip with 8 outlets on it.  3 of  them are widly spaced so you can get big wall wart power plugs into it without blocking other outlets!  Its got a nice heavy cord that wraps around the whole thing neatly and its a nice bright neon green so you can easily find it in your box of emergency supplies when you are getting it out in the next blackout.  This is a piece of quality that will NOT let you down.
 

3-grounded Outlet T-shaped Adapter, Orange $6.59
I told you that you'd recognize what I was trying to describe on the radio as soon as you saw it.. this is it.  Stack these up into each other to make the best, most heavy duty outlet strip you've ever had. 
If Orange is SOLD OUT get these GREEN ONES for $5.50
Use these to split off extension cords that you run into your house from the generator or inverter that is outside.
<HARRIS PHOTO> See what I do with this. Click here.

 

Right Angle Wall Tap - 3-Outlet Splitter - UL Listed - Behind Furniture $4.81
This adapter will work just as good as the one above, but will look funky when you start to plug a bunch of them into each other.

Coleman Cable 3-Prong To 2-Prong Adapter, Grounding Outlet Converter, 2-Pack  $4.38
You cannot have ENOUGH of these.  I have one plugged into the end of almost every extension cable.  If you are doing something improvised at someone's house with power, half the time they still are in the dark ages and only have two prong outlets.  My laptop power supply ALWAYS has one plugged into it.  It does not need 3 prongs.  I commonly use 2 wire extension cords when I travel for my laptop and other electronics and these allow anything to plug into these nice thin, easy, low power cords to get electricity.  If you think you need 4 of these, then get 8.  The only thing more expensive than these at about $2 each is NOT having one when you need it.
 

Leviton 692-W 15 Amp, 125 Volt, Triple Cube Grounding Adapter, White  $4.21
Take one of these and plug it into the 2-Prong Adapter (above) and plug that into the 15 foot extension cable (below) and you have all the outlets you need from your inverter.  You are using just a few hundred watts, the thin extension cable (below) can easily handle that, now you have plenty of outlets to plug in your cell phones, ipads, androids and other small electronics to get charge them up.  Like the orange T adapter, you can plug as many of these into themselves as you desire to have all the outlets you want.
 

Stanley Cord Max 15-Foot 3-Outlet Indoor Extension Cord, White $8.97
This is cheaper at Walmart or Target, even Home Depot or Lowes, but I use the heck out of these.  They are all  you need for running electronics from an inverter.  This one is 15 foot, which is the size I usually get.  They also come in 6 and 9 foot at the stores.   Want to light a place up?  I string a bunch of the 6 footers together (with the ends tied together) and then I plug in LED light bulbs (with an adapter) into the cord and I have an LED light bulb ever 6 foot and you can string this up in a room off the floor.  Use this cable with one of the 2 prong adapters above and you can run your laptop to any outlet you desire, if 15 feet is not enough, use 2.  I use this in air ports when I travel all the time.  There is  never an outlet close enough.

What is
Steve's Power Circle.

I have been emailed many times, thank you, with people asking if they can assist me with stuff.  The answer is YES.  I need help.  I need people to look at some video clips, to see if I explained something well, I need feedback on different things, 1st class opinions and I do need people to help me with some social media, putting up a post on Facebook or to put out a tweet to help get the word out about what we are doing to help others. 

If you would like to help me with this, then SIGN UP HERE.  This is NOT our general email list.  This is a private little group and I'll only send things specifically to this group.  You'll be INSIDE the power circle.

First Aid:  What is most important and why?   
Throughout the history of the soldier there is one thing that will disable a soldier or a person in the wild or a survival situation quicker than anything else and that is a skin problem.  Skin is your largest organ and it easily gets cut, gets a rash, blister or irritation and that can prevent you from walking, it can get infected and it can just be downright painful.    First you need items to treat & protect your skin, then you need to be able to stop bleeding and heal that wound, then you need stuff that will treat your digestive system (diarrhea & vomiting), then you need to have items for your respiratory system (breathing).  Items to stop coughing and to protect you from inhaling irritants and particles.  This page also include pain killers because those deal with both your skin and wounds that make you bleed.

SKIN: WOUNDS AND BLEEDING

Even though you are more likely to get a blister or a rash that becomes a problem, people put a great deal of first aid emphasis on wounds and bleeding, probably because its so scary.  Seeing blood just triggers something inside of us that says BAD.  Protecting your skin is such a serious subject that I have divided it into different skin areas, general, lips, feet etc...  I try to start with the cheapest and simpler items and then move towards the more complex.   Which is why this starts out with Medical Tape and Female Napkins.  Noting will stop bleeding quicker and easier than those two.  You'll never use a Band-Aid again. !!

Durapore Medical Tape, Silk Tape - QTY 12 - 1 in. x 10 yards $16.79
Durapore is the strongest of the 3M surgical tapes.  Since I have started using this in the 1990's I have never use ONE Band-Aid since then.  When I get a cut or a scrape or something bleeding, I just wrap this tape around it.  It cover and closes up the wound and does a good job of taking care of the blood.  If its really a bleeder I put some paper towel under the tape over the wound or I cut a piece of the Maxi-Pad (below) and put that on it and then tape over it.  There is hardly a quicker and easier way to take care of a small to medium sized wound than this tape.  Hold down a piece of paper towel, maxi-pad, 4x4 gauze, or other dressing.

Want Just ONE Roll?  Get it Here.    2" Wide Tape is Available Here.
 

DON'T LAUGH - THIS WORKS !
Always Infinity Heavy Flow with Wings, Unscented, Individually Wrapped (Pack of 64) $13.89
What is the job of Female Napkins / Maxi Pads ?  Its to absorb BLOOD.  Its specifically made to adsorb blood and a lot of it.  These are individually wrapped and "sanitary".  There are more of these made in on day in the USA than there are of 4x4 gauze bandages in an entire year.  Use the whole thing or use the scissors below and cut a piece to size and tape it on down.   This is as inexpensive as it gets for making your own bandages and dressings.
 

Prestige Medical Fluoride Scissor $9.90
These are an extremely high quality pair of scissors.  These are TOP rated and inexpensive.  Use these in your medical kit / any kit to cut anything from bandages, to clothing, to fixing tents or tarps.  Get these in 5.5" or 7.5" sizes.
 

Nexcare No Sting Liquid Bandage Spray $4.62
A simple yet proven spray liquid that protect a wound similar to a bandage.  Spray it on and let it dry.  Multiple applications are suggested.  Spray / Dry, Spray / Dry etc...  Works really good on rashes and skin wounds on elbows or knees or other areas that flex and that a bandage won't adhere to very well because of movement.  This is just one skin care tool in your first aid box of knowledge and tools.   Its increasingly hard to find in stores and people are ordering it online now.
 

20 cc/ml 10 pcs Syringe w/o Needles New Sterile Disposable Luer Slip Tip $9.98
If you have a cut, a wound, a rash, a scrape or something that needs to be cleaned and wash and especially needs a good stream of water to clean it out because you have a lot of foreign material in there then there is no easier way to do that than with a simple 20cc Syringe along with some Sterile Water (below).   Just open the syringe, open the sterile water, pull the water into the syringe and then irrigate the wound and clean it up.  Use along with sterile pads (above) to help clean up.
 

Sterile Water for Irrigation, USP - 250ml Bottle - Bottle $7.83
This is a 250ml bottle of sterile water that goes along with the syringe above.  There are larger bottles of sterile water available, like 500ml bottles here, but this 250ml bottle fits into a small medical kit just fine and its more than enough to do most jobs.  Need more than this, you better be getting some professional medical treatment soon.  In fact, get it anyway, if you can.
 

Johnson & Johnson Red Cross Mirasorb Gauze Sponges, 4 Inch x 4 Inch, 50 Count $6.99
4x4's are a very traditional and often used medical item  They are  just aborbant pieces of sterile material that are perfect to fold up and put over a wound or to put on a wound directly.  Also very commonly used to wash and clean a wound, irritation or infection.  Individually wrapped STERILE versions of this can be found HERE. 
2"x2" versions can be found here.

ECONOMY VALUE BUTTERFLY CLOSURE STRIPS LARGE 100/BOX $5.30
Ouch...you got cut...and now you need a few stiches, or more, but there is no one available.  Stop the bleeding, clean the blood off and use these "Butteryfly Closure Strips" also called by the 3M name brand of "Steri-Strips" to pull the would together and to close it up as good as you can.  If you'd like the original name brand 3M Steri-Strips you can get them here.
CURAD also makes a very nice line of butterfly closures - Click Here.
 

3M Vetbond Adhesive, 3ml Wound Closure Skin Adhesive $19.00
Got a deep cut that might need a stitch or two but you aren't near an ER to have it done ?  Glue it shut.  Or close it with some Steri-Strips (above) and then put the glue on it to hold it extra shut.  This is an offical SKIN-GLUE.  In emergencies people have used regular super glue for closing wounds.  There is a more expensive version of this made for humans, but this is the exact same stuff made for animals and its a lot cheaper.  Read on the Amazon feedback on how people have used it on themselves.  If you'd desire the human version it comes in a single use vial here for $17.95 (Dermabond)
 

Celox V12090-35 Blood Clotting Solution, 35g Pouch $22.41
Celox is a blood coagulant powder, the 35 gram pouch is for major bleeding, a gun shot would, a knife wound, when you have more blood coming out than you have ever seen before you rip this open and pour it directly INTO the wound, you fill it up and pour it all over the wound and you apply direct continual pressure on the wound.  This stops the wound from bleeding, along with your pressure.  You can then put a pressure dressing (below) on it and then  you are going to have to seek medical treatment.  If you have been in the military and been through the Combat Life Saver or TCCC course, then you know what I'm talking about.  This is not a fix, this just stops you from bleeding so you can get yourself alive to professional trauma based medical care.  There is a 10 pack of smaller 2 Gram packets of Celox HERE that you can use on smaller cuts and bleeds that are being stubborn, something that would require from 0 to a few stitches.
 

Kerlix Type Gauze Rolls 4"X4 yds, Sterile, 4/bag $4.55
This is sterile dressing wrap. Can be used to insert into and to pack a bad wound to stop it from bleeding, can be wrapped around a wound on its own to stop bleeding, can be wrapped around something that is over or covering a wound, infection or area of irritation, can be used to make an improvised sling for an arm.   Can be tied tight over another roll of kerlix to make a compression bandage.   You can cut it and put it in an antiseptic like iodine solution to wipe a wound area clean.  This is the 1001 uses / do-all first aid item.
 

Israeli Bandage Battle Dressing, First Aid Compression Bandage $5.75
For just under $6.00 you get an incredible piece of trauma first aid treatment  here.  Its sterile, vacuum packed and FAMOUS.  The Israeli Battle Dressing (IBD) is used world wide for treating combat wounds.  It wraps around any part of your body, has all of the stuff built into it so you can pull and tie it tight and its got a large, very adsorbent compression bandage on it for stopping blood flow.  If you are worried about combat type injuries, then the IBD, the H bandage for $7.50, the Celox and the CAT Tourniquet are what you want.  If this IBD is sold out you can get this IBD Here
 

C-A-T Combat Application Tourniquet $27.95
This is the official tourniquet of the US Army, and for once, they picked  an excellent one. I have been formally trained in the use of the CAT as well as the IBD (above) and the use of Celox (above) and I can tell you that this is THE item to have to stop heavy bleeding in an extremity (arm or leg).  It can be used 1 handed, its operation is very intuitive, but still practice with it.  Wrap it around , cinch it down, turn the windlass till the blood flow stops and then tuck the end of the windlass into its holder.  If the CAT is sold out then buy this version HERE. 
                    

 

SKIN: CLEANING AND DISINFECTING

Keep your skin clean so you won't get rashes.  Keep your skin clean so rashes and cuts won't get infected.  Wash and disinfect your rashes and your cuts and your blisters and other skin problems.  STOP nothing from being a small problem, stop small problems from being a big problem.

Band-aid Brand First Aid Hurt-Free Antiseptic Wash 6-Ounce $6.98
This is especially good for children, or big babies, the wash does not sting or hurt the wound plus it has a mild pain killer in it to take away the pain of the wound.  Works very good for cleaning up scrapes and road rash.
 

Alcohol 99% Isopropyl Pint $7.50
Have to clean up the area around a wound?  Take some cotton balls, or pieces of maxi-pad (above) and soak them in alcohol and start to clean up around the affected area.  Get the dirt, the blood, the grime and the germs off the area around the wound.   Generally alcohol is not used for cleaning the inside of the wound itself, but for cleaning up everything around it.  Don't forget to use this on your hands to clean up your hands before you start helping someone.  Wipe your hands with this and then leave it on, wait a good 15 seconds, for it to kill the germs on your hands.
 

Hydrogen Peroxide Antiseptic Solution 16 Oz $4.45
Hydrogen peroxide is used on top of wounds itself, its good to get any dirt and debris out of the wound and for it to kill any bacterial that is on the surface.   You remember this stuff from being a kid, your mother would pour it on a wound or a scab and it would fizzle up with white foam and bubbles.  This is a disinfectant used for the outside of your body.
 

First Aid Only Povidone-Iodine Infection Control Wipe, 10-Count Boxes (Pack of 20) [200 PADS] $26.68
Do NOT use betadine if you have an allergy to shell fish or iodine.  What do you do if you have a cut that is 'healing' and it gets red and infected, you can use betadine directly on the cut / wound area to help kill infection and clean it up.  Then it should be covered with a clean bandage or surgical tape (see above for tape) (see below for more wound coverings)   If you have a cut or scrape that is getting infected, clean it 2x to 3x a day with betadine and put a fresh bandage over it.   Do you need some sterile wash water for cleaning your hands or a wound?  Put ONE of these wipes in a quart of clear water, shake it up, and let it sit for 30 minutes.  Then use that water for cleaning or washing a wound area.  DO NOT DRINK THIS WATER.  The iodine concentration is way to high.   This is just a quick and easy trick.
 

Povidone Iodine Swabsticks 1's - 50 Per Box $8.45
This is exactly the same as the above described betadine but its in a swab stick rather than a wipe in a pouch.  You can this to make clean WASH water just like I describe above with the wipe.

Iodine Tincture First Aid Antiseptic-2% USP, By Preferred Plus - 1 Oz $5.79
This is probably the most compact way to carry iodine as an antiseptic, with the most use.  This little bottle has many applications in it.  I guess the smallest and most compact form would be the wipes above, but you only get 1 use per wipe.  This just has a glass stem in it that you use to put the iodine directly on the infected area.  This would be the most milage with the smallest space.  Click HERE for CDC Guidelines on how to use this to disinfect drinking water. 
 

Alcohol Prep 2ply. 200 Count Alcohol Prep Pads $4.11
If you have to clean up an area around a new cut or a wound that has already started healing, and its infected, you can use one of these alcohol prep pads.  These should ALSO be used by people who are ALLERGIC TO IODINE.

Also, use these to also clean your hands before you eat or before you treat someone else.  These are less than half the price of Purell Hand Sanitizing Wipes and do the same thing.

Neosporin Original Ointment First Aid Antibiotic Treatment 3 Pack Value Pack $18.49
Note: this is a 3 pack for this price, which is good.  I mention above about using iodine to clean up wounds, but there is nothing better putting an actual anti-biotic onto the wound.  Before modern antibiotics people died of infections from cuts that became infected.  Even as simple as a poke from a rose thorn killed people.   Antibiotics will prevent an infection from being a problem and in a blackout situation where the infrastructure is down, and you are not showing daily, you will get dirty and things will get infected.  So iodine on wounds is good, antibiotics are excellent.
 

HART Health Triple Antibiotic Ointment, 0.5gm, 25/box, 3-Box Set $13.19
This is exactly the same as the above however these are individual packets that you can use once, or twice, or you can give away to other people to treat their wounds.  You  might have a tube of antibiotics for yourself and family, but the packets to give away or to treat other people.
 


 

SKIN: CUTS, SCRAPES, IRRITATION, RASHES AND CLEANING

Simple and easy treatments for the small problems that happen to your skin before they become bigger problems.  Many times small irritations can be very distracting for adults or a constant annoyance for children.  A little of the right type of ointment can take care of a lot of those problems.

Bag Balm� Medicated Oinment 10oz $8.99 (or less)
Bag Balm got its start as an ointment for the chafed, cracked skin on the utters of milking cows.  It'd heal up the skin pretty quickly.  This works very well on anything that is itching, irritated and needs some salve on it.  If this does not cure the irritation or skin problem you'll have to try the hydrocortisone cream below.   This is a 10oz tin, so its not something that goes into a little kit or that you carry with you when you travel.  There is a great 1oz tin of this, just a smaller version of what you see on the photo.  The 1oz is just enough for a few problems and small enough to travel with you.
Don't' forget the 1 oz tin. Its awesome for small kits! $4.05

 

Porters Liniment Salve - Two Pack 2 oz. Tins $16.49
This is for a 2 pack, so its about the same price as the bag balm, and it does basically the exact same thing, but it comes in a thin round tin that travels very well.  Some people like Porters, some like Bag Balm, it depends on what part of the country you are from and what was on the store shelves when you were a child.
 

Aveeno 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream, Maximum Strength, 1-Ounce Tube $9.37
Rashes, Irritations and irritating things that just wont go away and they are red and sore or they itch and itch and itch are things that need to be treated with a hydrocortisone type of cream.  This is especially effective at treating ALLERGIC reactions to something.  My wife had an allergenic reaction on her ear from a new ear ring.  Bag balm and Porters would not stop the itching so I had to run to the store to get some hydrocortisone and the itching stopped in 30 seconds.   However, this would not treat, dry, cracked skin like the bag balm or porters would.  Different problems, different solutions.
 

Hydrocortisone Cream Anti-Itch 25 Pkts/Box $3.15
Again, above I have the tube of the cream and here I have the small packets of the hydrocortisone cream.  I like the small packets because you can put them in a very small kit, just enough for a few days, and you can also give a packet to a friend and you can still have 2 or 3 left in your little travel kit.   Someone who has an itch that won't stop will pay / trade heavily for a little packet of this miracle cream that stops itching.
 

Desitin Maximum Strength Paste (Pack of 2) $10.48
Wow..if there is one thing that will give your skin the most irritating rash its having messy bathroom conditions.  These conditions will occur when things stop working or you find yourself way from modern toilets.  Desitin is a thick zinc oxide cream and its used to treat diaper rash, and you know what creates diaper rash.  Well if you don't clean yourself up good enough each time you'll get the same thing.  If you've every heard the saying, "that person is an irritating A-hole" then you know from where that saying comes if you've ever had an irritated dumper.   Desitin is also commonly used as a sunblock on your nose if you are particularly sensitive to the sunshine and your hat does not effectively cover your whole face.
 

Diphenhydramine HCl 25 Mg Allergy Medicine and Antihistamine Compare to Active Ingredient of Benadryl� Allergy Generic - 400 Tablets $9.99
If you are having an allergic reaction to something even a bad rash, and the bag balm, porters and the hydrocortisone cream is not working, you might have to take medication like this.   This is normally used to treat seasonal allergies, however it does work on other allergic reactions as well.  It also makes you sleepy, so its good as a sleep aid in a disaster, you might have trouble sleeping.  It also has mild anti-nausea side effects so if you are puking, or feel like it, it might give you some relief. 
 

Uncle Bill's Sliver Gripper Tweezers Survival Camping - Key Chain or Bottle NEW! $5.92
These are up here because of my good friend Matt from my home town.  He says he's a big baby when it comes to splinters but he can run 50 miles and does triathlons and such.  So I found the most excellent pair of sliver removers available with the highest ratings there are.  I like them so much, I have some on the way for my personal  medical kit.   Nothing like a stuck blister to get infected, red, swollen, and then all full of puss, just so the body can force it out on its own, unless you get blood poisoning first.
 


 

SKIN: LIPS

Your lips are part of your skin, and when they do get chapped and  cracked and sore it makes drinking, talking and eating more difficult.  It hurts.  Protect your lips from getting chapped and help them heal when they do.  These are very small, inexpensive and so very effective.  This is an important part of any medical kit.

EOS Tangerine Medicated Lip Balm Sphere, .25-Ounce (Pack of 3) $8.97
Sore, cracked and chapped lips can quickly make you miserable.  It can make it painful to drink and eat and is just annoying as heck.  You're in a disaster, last thing you need is more annoyance.   Especially if its your children that are getting annoyed.  This is one of my personal favorites for a lip balm.  It tastes good, smells good and comes in a nice hard plastic shell.  This is 'medicated' lip balm so it'll help heal your lips if they've already gotten sore.
 

Blistex Lip Medex External Analgesic/Lip Protectant 0.25 Oz (Pack of 6) $10.80
This is the same as above, but its better for sharing.  I don't really want to use your lip balm after you've put it on your sore, infected lips.  However this is a little tin of lip balm.  You put your finger in it and then rub it on your lips.  So if have to share with someone its a lot less gross than sharing your stick of lip balm.
 

Blistex Medicated Lip Balm, Regular, SPF 15 - 3 ea  $8.39
I've put this here because this is one of the major brands that you'll recognize.  Any of these 3 will do just fine, but this is a 3 pack, and now you can  have one all to yourself, plus a spare, and one to give away to a good friend in need.
 


 

SKIN: FEET

Of the skin on your body probably the area that can get hurt the quickest and stop you the fastest is the skin of your feet.   If its painful for you to walk, you are slowed way down or you are not walking and moving.  If you can't walk you can't keep ahead of the zombies.  One day in wet boots or shoes can give you tremendous problems.  Always take time to dry your shoes and socks at night, or when ever you can if you are in a wet environment.  Make sure you have a GREAT pair of boots and they are broken in and CHANGE YOUR SOCKS !!  Clean Socks !! are one of the #1 ways of keeping your feet healthy... it is that simple.  Ask ANY soldier.  Go to wikipedia and read about WWI trench foot

Tinactin Antifungal Cream for Athlete's Foot $10.69
A foot fungal infection (athletes foot) with the skin between your toes falling apart and forming open sores is something that can become debilitating very quickly.  Very quickly you can find yourself NOT being able to walk.  If you can't move, you can't keep ahead of the zombie herd.  If you get into a wet foot environment, your boots or shoes are wet all day, you can get this.  I use to have this problem a long time ago, but this stopped it dead in its tracks.  I've not had it in 15 years.  I like the cream because you can put it on the affected areas and it stays there, and I can goop it on to put more medicine on it.  This is probably the best option.
 

Tinactin Athletes Foot Powder Spray (Pack of 3) $20.30
This spray can is the same thing as the stuff above, but you spray it on.  It goes on with a very nice cooling feeling.  Plus, if someone else has a fungal infection, and you have to treat it (like your child) you don't want to be rubbing your fingers all over their infected feet, so its easier just to apply the medication a spray can.   The cream is the smallest, most compact form of the medication and would work best for traveling.  There are many other brands of this same medication, this is just one that I used that worked very well for me.
 

Band-Aid Advanced Healing Blister Cushions $3.67
Blisters are a scourge, they will debilitate you quickly and prevent you from either walking our effectively using your hands.  Cushioning gel pad relieves pain while protecting the blister. Waterproof, superior adhesive stays in place for multi-day use. Flexible form conforms to skin for greater fit and comfort. Seals out water, dirt, and germs that can cause infection.
 

Band-Aid Brand Adhesive Bandages, Advanced Healing Blister Cushions for Fingers & Toes, 8-Count Box $3.99
Exactly the SAME as ABOVE except these curl around to go around fingers and toes where those pesky blisters appear when you least expect them.


          

Blister Medic by Adventure Medical Kits $8.53
There is a wide range of products available.  This is nice because its got different cutouts for different blisters.  However I am NOT a fan of things that are 'pre-made' and I prefer for you to have the basics to take care of things yourself.  So if one of the Band-Aid items above does not work, because they are so simple, then get the moleskin below and use it to cut our or tape up your own blisters on your own body to your own needs.

Dr. Scholl's Moleskin Plus 24" x 4 5/8" Padding Roll (Pack of 4) $19.87
This is what I'd rather you have, a roll of mole skin, now you can cut out what ever shape or size you so desire, paste it where ever you desire.  On your foot, hand, or any other place that is getting a blister.  Cut out squares of it and put it in a zip lock bag and put it in your medical bag etc...
 

Jaybird and Mais MOLESKIN Moleskin Roll (2 in. wide) $21.91
This is the same stuff as the above, the the above stuff is 4.5" wide, and this is only 2" wide, so it might fit in your medical kit a lot better than the larger box of moleskin above.
 

Bodyglide Skin Glide - 1.6oz Tube $9.99

In this case...someone else's words are better than mine.
I'm training for a (walking) marathon & a half in hot, steamy Southern California. There's nothing like being in the California sun for 7 hours straight with all your moving parts constantly moving. I've had major problems with chafing, severe swelling, blisters and terrible heat rash on my feet. I've used petroleum jelly, powder, etc., etc., etc. None of them worked as well as this product. I did 22 miles two days ago and re-applied after mile 12. NO heat rash, blisters or chafing in the areas where I applied it. Was able to do 10 more miles the next day on feet that didn't hurt -- for the first time. The product is pricey -- no doubt. But when I'm nursing a blister, I can't really put a price on being able to move without pain or injury when I'm training or during an event

Men's HeatGear� Crew Sock 4-Pack Socks by Under Armour $20.98
CLEAN & DRY SOCKS, CLEAN & DRY SOCKS, CLEAN & DRY SOCKS.
It cannot be said enough, that is how you PREVENT your feet from getting blisters and fungal infections in the FIRST PLACE !!  You do not have to treat and fix what did not happen.  DO NOT hold cotton socks, they hold water.  DO NOT use WOOL socks, they too hold water (not as  much as cotton) but they stink in comparison to using a modern synthetic sock.  You'll be taking your socks off and putting on new ones and letting your other ones dry on a line or on your pack as you are moving.  The synthetics will dry many times FASTER than wool.   You want a good 3 or 4 pair of GOOD SOCKS.   This is a 4 pack of socks and Under Armor is famous for their synthetic cloths.

Fox River Military Wick Dry Maximum Mid Calf Boot Sock $10.65
I just did not want to put up one line of socks.  There are many manufactures of good socks.  These are all synthetic and will work fine.  CLEAN & DRY SOCKS!

Carhartt Mens Work-dry� Lightweight Western Boot Over-the-calf Sock $10.00
Carhartt is about as famous of a name as Under Armor, and they are known for their durability so if they are selling a sock for you to wear in your boots you know it'll be comfortable, padded, thick and do a good job.  CLEAN & DRY SOCKS!

Nuby 4 Pack Safety Pins, Colors May Vary $2.99
Well, if you get a blister from wearing your boots or shoes, and you are just one of those people who have to pop your blisters, then you'll want a pin to pop it, and nothing works better than a safety or diaper pin.  Make sure you heat it up with a match or lighter to disinfect it before use it, and let it cool down before you use it.   Safety pins should always be part of any emergency kit or travel kit because you are always going to have a wardrobe malfunction at sometime and a safety pin will save the day.


 

SKIN: CARE, PROTECTION AND PREVENTION

A little protection goes a LOT ways to keeping your skin from getting injured, and then infected.  A little prevention is always a good habit. 

No-Rinse Shampoo - 16 oz $6.05
This is used in 1000's of hospitals.  Its a simple liquid wetted to your hair and it will get the oils off and make you feel cleaner.   Towel dry your hair after.  Not as good as a real shower but by far better than having icky and oily hair.  Remember your scalp is part of your skin and it needs to be maintained.

No-Rinse Shampoo is ready to use that serves the need of bedfast patients, convalescents, the elderly and others where rinsing is difficult. It can be applied, lather and towel dry. Penetrating foaming action does the cleaning. It eliminates odor and it is safe, comfortable, convenient and alcohol free.
 

No-Rinse Body Bath with Odor Eliminator - 16 oz. $10.99
Used by NASA and ALL the Space Shuttle Flights.  Used in 1000's of hospitals.  Mix some of this up with water and use a cloth to wash down your entire body.  NO RINSING needed.  Get the oil, stink and grime off you quickly and easily.  Just towel dry when you are done.  Keeping your skin clean is a very important part of preventative first aid.  Rashes, infections and skin irritations can be debilitating and they only get worse.
 

Pampers Sensitive Wipes 12x Box With Tub 768 Count $25.26
If you are in an environment where you cannot take a bath or shower then the next best thing is baby wipes.  You can clean your entire body with baby wipes.  I know people who have used them to keep clean for over a month.  These are not a long term solution to not being able to shower, but they are a great short term solution, especially if you have children.  768 wipes for $25 is a great price.  This comes with 1 dispensing box and 11 sealed packs of wipes to refill the box with.
 

Dewalt DPG20L All Purpose Synthetic Leather Palm Spandex Back Velcro Wrist Work Glove $13.34
You've heard me say this before, the #1 most important thing to have after a disaster like a tornado, hurricane, or earthquake is a darn good pair of gloves.  Gloves turn your hands and arms into machines.  Hands without gloves get cut, poked, sore, blisters, irritated etc.. With a pair of gloves you can handle ruff lumber with nails, broken glass, tree limbs, brush, a blown down home in pieces and anything else.  Get these gloves or any of these Heavy Leather Gloves on Amazon or at your local store.  Make sure they are tough and that they FIT WELL!!
 

SafeTouch Nitrile Exam Gloves, Non Latex, Powder Free $9.47
Do you have to wash poison ivy off of someone?  Are you cleaning up a something messy, human or non human, then you'll want to keep your  hands clean and sanitary.  Nothing does this quicker and easier than these non-latex gloves.  Click on the link, and you can select your size of glove and you can order by the box or by the case.

 

 

SKIN: PREVENTION OF DAMAGE AND IRRITATION

If there are two things that can come and get you from the sky its sunshine and mosquitoes and other biting insects.  Sun burn can be come so bad that it actually becomes sun poisening.

Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen Lotion $6.44
Many people are not out in the sun a lot, only when going to the beach. We inside our homes, inside our cars, inside stores, inside work, well in a disaster you might be outside a lot.  Sunburns can happen in hours depending on your skin and location.  Sunburns can not only be painful but crippling especially when your feet get sun burned.   Having smaller tubes of sunscreen with you is recommended and larger bottles of it for home storage.  SPF 30-50 will work fine.   A little bit of prevention will go a long way.
 

Banana Boat Kids SPF 50 Family Size Sunscreen Lotion, 12-Fluid Ounce $8.94
This is just a larger bottle of sunscreen at a very affordable price, and its got a pump dispenser on it so its easy to get out just what you need and to apply it.  Using sunscreen lotion is many times cheaper than sunscreen sprays.  The bottles of lotion also put a lot more sunscreen in a much smaller container than a spray on sunscreen.
 

Extreme Outdoor Hat UV 45+ Sun Protection (in OLIVE) $16.50
One way to avoid having to use sun block is not to let the sun hit you.  Wear a Sun Hat like this one that keeps teh sun off your face, head and back of your neck.   Wear light but long sleeve shirts and pants.  This will help with biting insects.   Your long and light shirts and pants and this hat should be treated with the Permethrin below.   This will TOTALLY prevent mosquitoes from biting you through your cloths.
 

Repel 6-Ounce Sportsmen Max Insect Repellent 40-Percent DEET Pump Spray $11.44
The rule (and the science) is permethrin for clothing, and DEET for skin.  NO WAY can it work in reverse.  DEET interferes with the receptors on the mosquito from homing in on the CO2 and water vapor from your breath and your skin.  In a sense...they can't 'see you.'  The higher the concentration of DEET, the longer it lasts on your skin.  This is up here because mosquito bites are irritations and can become infected or are just plain annoying.  In a post hurricane situation with a great deal of water, and no power, no infrastructure, mosquito populations can EXPLODE.  You are already dirty, not showering daily, have a stressed immune system from 'stress', different diet etc...
 

Sawyer Premium Permethrin Clothing Insect Repellent Trigger Spray 24oz $15.89
Permethrin is a synthetic version of a natural plant enzyme found in the Chrysanthemum flower.  It will prevent mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums) from getting to you through your clothing.  When they land on your cloths or try to bite or sting through the fabric they get contaminated by the enzyme and they die.  This is 100% safe for human.  Its NOT safe for fish nor cats.  So don't spray either one of these, but on your clothing it is very safe.  It lasts many MONTHS and dozens of washings in the washer.  There is a great video of it on Amazon, just click on the photo or the link above to go see it.  This has been use by the military on soldiers uniforms for decades.
 

Zorrel - Insect Shield Apparel Long Sleeve Tee Shirt $31.35
If you don't want to treat your own shirts and pants, you can buy them pre-treated and ready to wear.  These will survive over 70 washes and still be effective.  Works on mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers, and midges (no-see-ums).   Want more than a shirt?  There is a complete line of Bugs Away Clothing HERE
 


 

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: STOMACH - DIARRHEA & WORSE

The first thing that can get you the quickest and the most severe is a skin problem.  The second problem is your digestive system.  If you have constant diarrhea and or are puking your brains out, you are not going to be very good.  A lot of diarrhea can be caused by unsanitary conditions.  Constant diarrhea (dysentery) can be caused by viral infections, bacterial infections, or parasitic infestations.  Dysentery is debilitating and can lead to death from dehydration in less than a day (depending on severity and climate).  Most commonly you'll get Dysentery from contaminated water.  However simple diarrhea can be caused from stress, nerves, lack of sleep, poor diet, change of diet, change of water source etc... these medicines will treat these simple diarrheas.  

Kirkland Signature Anti-Diarrheal Loperamide Hydrochloride (same as IMODIUM A-D) 2 MG Caplets, 200-Count Bottles (Pack of 2) $10.08
If there is one thing that will make your life instantly miserable then that is diarrhea.  Its debilitating and if you are on the move its got the prospect of making a real mess and contaminating your cloths and stuff you come in contact with.  Continual and uncontrolled diarrhea can dehydrate you quickly and can even lead to death (dysentery).   At the first signs of diarrhea follow the dosing instructions on this bottle and take the medicine.  "Imodium" is the strongest anti-diarrhea medicine available over the counter.

Get 36 packets of 2 Pills each for Small Kits Here

Pepto-Bismol Upset Stomach Reliever/Antidiarrheal Chewable Tablets, Original, 48-Count Boxes (Pack of 3) $20.37
Petbo Bismol is famous and has been a proven stomach treatment for decades.  Have an  upset stomach, take Pepto, feel like puking, take Pepto, have diarrhea take Pepto.  It DOES stop diarrhea but it is by no means as strong of an anti-diarrhea medicine than the Imodium (above).   I listed the Pepto here in the chewable form because the large pink bottles of the liquid would take up too much room in an emergency kit. 

Get 25 Packs w/ 2 Tablets Each Here for Small Kits $13.48

Prilosec OTC Acid Reducer, Delayed-Release Tablets $23.59
Some people have a real problem with acid reflux, and if you've had it, you know how miserable it can be.  It can even affect the quality of your sleep, or inability to sleep.  Changing diets as you might in a disaster may lead to a person who has his acid reflux under control normally to have it pop back up again.  A little acid reliever goes a long way to  making this situation better.  Prilosec takes a few hours to take effect, so its not an immediate solution, but once it takes affect, it will block you from getting acid reflux for over 24 hours.    If you want a quick acting acid reliver then get some of the chewable tables HERE.... but it only works right now, it does not prevent future acid reflix.
 

Gas-X Thin Strips Antigas, Extra Strength, Peppermint Flavored Strips, 18 strips (Pack of 6) $23.80
Your stomach typically produces 'gas' when it has a hard time digesting something.  In a disaster your diet may change significantly and you might get gas.  This can be uncomfortable for you because of pressure and unpleasant for those around you, or stuck in the car or shelter with you, because of the odor.  Gas-X stops this gas production almost instantly giving you fast relief.  These strips are so thin that they hardly take up any space at all.  Great for small emergency kits especially if you travel.
 

Preparation H Anti-Itch Cream with Hydrocortisone 1%, .9-Ounce Tubes (Pack of 3) $21.09
If you've ever suffered from hemorrhoids then you know the pain and the irritation from them.   Have spare tubes of this available because its sure to flare up in a disaster right when you don't need it the most.
 

Diphenhydramine HCl 25 Mg Allergy Medicine and Antihistamine Compare to Active Ingredient of Benadryl� Allergy Generic - 400 Tablets $9.99
Benadryl types of medications are mostly used to treat allergies and allergic reactions.  Its also used as a sleep aid because it makes you drowsy.   I have it listed here in the stomach section because it does have mild anti-nausea properties to it.  Its not as strong as prescription anti-nausea medicine but its a lot better than nothing.
 


 

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM: BREATHING - COUGHING

Get a cold, get the flu, pneumonia, bronchitis or just inhale too much dust and fine particles and you can get yourself a nasty cough.  Cough too much and it starts to hurt and get worse.  A basic cough suppressant will stop this cycle and allow the lungs to start to heal.  Many times this will also allow the person to get a good night of sleep, and everyone else around them.  Serious infections like flu, pneumonia and bronchitis are going to probably require medical attention and antibiotics for the underlying infection.  But when its 1AM in the morning and you or your child can't stop coughing this will help keep them stable until you can hopefully get them to assistance the next day.

Delsym Adult 12 Hour Cough Relief Orange $8.52
Coughing can be debilitating.  It can cause significant lung irritation and even pain.  Delsym is widely used in hospitals for coughing.  I know people in cancer wards that use it to treat cancer patients who are having coughing problems from either the cancer or the cancer treatment.
 

Robitussin Peak Cold Maximum Strength Cough and Chest Congestion DM $7.56
Robitussin is another anti-coughing medicine.  It has been around for a long time and works good.  I have the top 3 anti-coughing medicines listed here because everyone knows what works for them.   Some people just prefer one over the other and as long as it works for you, that is what is important.
 

Mucinex Mucinex Fast-Max Severe Congestion Cough Liquid Maximum Strength $9.24
Mucinex is another anti-coughing medicine.  Its a newer brand of anti-coughing medicine and many people report very good results from it.
 

Halls Defense� Assorted Citrus Drops - 180 ct  $10.01
Cough drops...need I say more.  They provide immediate and temporary relief from coughing, also very good for sore thoughts.  Always have a good supply of anti-cold medications on hand because there will be a time when someone will get sick and you just won't be able to run down to the 24/7 pharmacy to get medication.
See ALL of the Cough Drops and Pick Your Favorite HERE
 

Sudafed Pressure + Pain, for Adults, Maximum Strength, Caplets 24 caplets $10.18
As the old saying goes, "your nose runs and your feel smell."  Having a runny nose can lead to constant coughing plus you having to blow your nose all of the time, and many times blowing out infectious mucus and body fluids on to nose tissues, toilet paper or paper towels.  Sudafed does a great job of  stopping this however due to new laws to get the most effective nasal decongestants you have to go and see your pharmacist.  They have them behind the counter now and you can get them without a prescription.
 

3M 8511 Particulate Sanding N95 Respirator with Valve, 10-Pack $15.37
One way to keep your respiratory system healthy is to keep particles out of your lungs.  3M N95 masks are famous and they do an excellent job of keeping you from breathing in stuff you don't want to breath.  In a disaster you might be in a very dusty environment and or you might be dealing with sick people.  When you talk, you are 'spitting' saliva.  This saliva can be infectious if the person is sick.  So keeping other peoples germs from getting into you, and keeping your germs from getting onto other people is a good idea.   The "cool flow" valve on this mask makes it a lot easier to exhale through than the mask below.
 

MASK PARTICULATE & SURGICAL RESPIRATOR REG N95 120/CS 3M Health Care $20.99

This is just the medical version of the above mask.  They are both N95 masks.  This one is a bit cheaper, but it does not have the cool flow mask.   If you are in a working environment like cleaning up a torn down house, use the mask above with the vent in it for your exhaling, it makes it a lot easier to breath.  If you are just around the house taking care of sick family members than this mask will work just perfect.
 


 

 

PAIN RELIEF

Damn that hurts.  We can get something that hurts so easily.   Tooth ache, cut, blister, broken or sprained bones and fingers.  Pain is a signal to the body that something is wrong.  Well once you know something is wrong, stop the pain.  It hurts.  Below are some of the common over the counter pain medications.

Simply Right Ibuprofen Pain Reliever/fever Reducer 200 Mg, 1000-Count $15.95

Ibuprofen / Advil etc.. are anti inflammatory drugs.  That means they reduce swelling.  If you smash your finger its going to swell up.  That swelling up presses on nerves and it hurts.  Taking a medicine to reduce the swelling will reduce the pain.  These are 2 big bottles at a great price.

First Aid Only Ibuprofen Tablets, 50 2-packs, 100-Count Boxes (Pack of 3) $13.77
Big bottles of ibuprofen might not fit in your portable or travel medical kit very well so I have also included some little packets of ibuprofen that will fit in the little places where you might need them.  I do this for each of the medications here.

Member's Mark - Acetaminophen 500 mg, 1000 Caplets, Pain Reliever (Compare to Tylenol) $18.27

Acetaminophen is the medicine better known as Tylenol.  Tylenol blocks the pain, its called an analgesic.  This works good on headaches, broken bones, wounds etc...  Most people know what works best for them in what situation, Tylenol or Advil.

Tylenol Pain Reliever/Fever Reducer, Extra Strength, 500 Mg Individual Sealed 2 Caplets in a Packet (Box of 50 Packets) Total 100 Caplets $19.98

As I said above...big bottles might not always be what you need.   Of course yo can always put the pills into a little ziplock bag but going into a foreign country might get you asked the questions, "what are these?"  "Tylenol."  "yeah..right...come back here please".  

Naproxen Sodium by Kirkland Signature - 400 caplets 220 mg Non Presctiption Strength - Compare to the active ingredient in Aleve $19.99

Naproxen Sodium (Aleve) use to be a prescription medication but now its Over The Counter (OTC).  In simple terms, its considered a stronger anti inflammatory than Advil or Ibuprofen is.  Note that you normally take only ONE of these at a time, NOT 2, as you do with Advil or Tylenol.   2 a day is normally the maximum dose and where as Advil and Tylenol might work for only 4-6 hours, Aleve will work for up to 12 hours.

Aleve Naproxen Sodium 220 mg 48 Pouches (Packets) of 1 Tablet $15.19

This is the same as above, but its the name brand "Aleve" and its in small packets for easy travel and smaller medical kits.

Water Jel Burn Jel, Pain Relief 25 ea $15.99
This work great on MILD BURNS. Like Sunburns, in fact, read its feedback, people praise how well it works on sunburns.  Disney uses it to treat guests at their parks who get sunburned.   This contains a pain relieving medicine called Lidocaine, 2% concentration.  This gives instant relief, for very serious burns, like 2nd degree blistering burns and worse, use the Burn Free below, see my photos of my fingers.  NOTE: This has 2% Lidocaine, most other sunburn gels are only 0.5% lidocaine.
 

BurnFree Emergency Complete Burn Care Kit $29.95

I've had Burn Free since the early 1990's, so over 20 years.  I got it a long time ago from a friend and had this entire 'burn kit' and through the years I used it here and there when I burned my fingers on a soldering iron or something, a few minor burns here and there. Then in Oct of 2012 I was BBQing and the steaks fell and I reached to grab the grill and I put my fingers right on the back of the BBQ, I grabbed it, a full 400-550F and direct pressure.  I knew I had 4 to 5 really bad burns.  I put cold water on it, then grabbed some ice cubes and drove 5 miles to my shop where I had an emergency kit with the Burn Free in it.  NOTHING killed the pain, not cold water, not cold ice, it hurt hurt hurt like hell.  Not until I got the burn free on it was there any relief from the pain, and the Burn Free was 20+ years old.  I had to keep burn free on it constantly for about 5 hours, but when I woke up the next morning, there was no pain...none...zero.  They never hurt again, kept their blisters for almost 2 weeks and healed beautifully.

EMERGENCY MEDICINE BOOKS

These are some of the best books written on emergency medicine and you.  What skills you need to know and have and train on for when there is a disaster and someone is hurt, and you have to fix them...or.. you are hurt and you have to treat yourself.

Where There Is No Doctor $19.27

This is one of the most famous medical books for the average person out there.  Its on my book shelf.  It should be on yours, along with the one below.
Hesperian's classic manual, Where There Is No Doctor, is perhaps the most widely-used health care manual in the world. Useful for health workers, clinicians, and others involved in primary health care delivery and health promotion programs, with millions of copies in print in more than 75 languages, the manual provides practical, easily understood information on how to diagnose, treat, and prevent common diseases. Special attention is focused on nutrition, infection and disease prevention, and diagnostic techniques as primary ways to prevent and treat health problems.
 

Where There Is No Dentist $11.20

Oh how I HATE dentists, but the thought of having a dental problem and there is no dentist around is even scarier... This book should be a critical part of your preparedness library and as with ALL of your books you should READ IT.
This 2012 updated reprint features information on Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART), a way to fill cavities without the use of a dental drill, as well as updated information on other training material and resources. All Hesperian books are regularly updated and reprinted to reflect accurate medical information. Community health workers, educators and individuals from around the world use Where There Is No Dentist to help people care for their teeth and gums. This book's broad focus makes it an invaluable resource. The author uses straightforward language and careful instructions to explain how to: examine patients; diagnose common dental problems; make and use dental equipment; use local anesthetics; place fillings; and remove teeth.
 

The Doom and Bloom(tm) Survival Medicine Handbook: Keep your loved ones healthy in every disaster, from wildfires to a complete societal collapse $34.99

Dr Bones and Nurse Amy are two of Jacks favorite people to have on The Survival Podcast.  They are also going to be at the Self Reliance Expo where I (Steven Harris) am also going to be a speaker.
The #1 Amazon Bestseller "survival medicine handbook" is meant for those who want to ensure the health of their loved ones in any disaster situation, from hurricanes to a complete societal collapse. Integrative medical strategies abound for situations in which medical help is NOT on the way. This book will teach the non-medical professional how to deal with all the likely medical issues they will face in a disaster situation in plain English. You'll learn skills like performing a physical exam, care of traumatic injuries and infectious disease, and even how to suture a wound!
 

Physicians' Desk Reference 2013 (Physicians' Desk Reference (Pdr)) $29.55

Got a drug in your cabinet and you don't know what it does ?? what its used for ? what its side effects are ? and its a disaster and you are in despite need to treat something ?? The PDR (Physicians Desk Reference) is the book that will tell you what every drug is and what its used for.  So if you don't remember what the name of that antibiotic was...but you have 4 bottles in front of you, this book will tell you which one it is.
 


 

EMPTY BAGS TO HOLD YOUR MEDICAL SUPPLIES

These bags are EMPTY...they are for YOU to make YOUR medical kit.  I do NOT like pre-made medical kits because the are made for the lowest common denominator.  Plus you really don't know what is in it.  When you build your own medical kit, then you KNOW what is in it, because you bought all of the item and you bought all of the items that YOU NEED.   Maybe you get skin rashes really easy, and you need 3x the cream in a 'normal' medical kit.

MOLLE Compatible Military Style M3 Medic Bag, Combat Medical Kit, Black $25.00

This kit is EMPTY..there are no supplies in it.  This is a standard US Military Medical bag, when you open it up it opens up into about 4 different pouches and each one can contain a different selection of medical supplies you desire.  Antibiotics in one, skin treatment in another, medical tape, bandages in another etc...  If you have MOLLE gear, than this will strap into it and away you go.
 

Ensign Peak Everyday Duffel Bag, Orange $10.79

This is just an inexpensive and simple duffel bag (comes in many colors) and it has a big inside area and a bunch of outside pockets for various items.  You don't have to put water bottles in the outside pockets.   Its just simple, inexpensive and flexible and that is why it is listed here.

Northstar 1050 HD Tuff Cloth Diamond Ripstop Series Gear/Duffle Bag (16 x 40-Inch, Blue) $16.36

This is just a simple standard duffel bag for you to throw everything into.  Its got one big opening and one big zipper with handles and a should strap. The above link is for the 40 inch long one.
It also comes in 30 inches long HERE for $16.36
and it also comes in 24 inches long HERE for $14.01

 


 

PRE-MADE MEDICAL KITS READY TO GO

I DO NOT like buying pre-made medical kits, however I do realize that you might not have the time select all of the items you need for a medical kit and that something pre-made and a little expensive is better than you having nothing.  You could have a hurricane 3 days away and you are taking our advice and having Amazon send you stuff by OVERNIGHT (costs $3.95 for Prime Members) and one of those things you might be ordering is a medical kit.  So here are a few good ones.

First Responder Trauma Bag- Fully Stocked $84.95

There is so many different items in these kits that you are going to have to click on the link and go read what is in it on amazon because its too numerous for me to list here.  All of these kits are nearly 5 stars, many of the reviews have a item by item list of what is in each one.  Keep in mind, this is just the basics, you may very well want to add to the kit with what we have listed above.  A kit made for  'everyone' just might not have a thing in it for 'you.'  Make it your own kit, even if you do get one of these pre-made and ready to go.
 

First Aid Only First Responder Emergency First Aid Kit, 159-Piece Bags $96.21
There is so many different items in these kits that you are going to have to click on the link and go read what is in it on amazon because its too numerous for me to list here.  All of these kits are nearly 5 stars, many of the reviews have a item by item list of what is in each one.  Keep in mind, this is just the basics, you may very well want to add to the kit with what we have listed above.  A kit made for  'everyone' just might not have a thing in it for 'you.'  Make it your own kit, even if you do get one of these pre-made and ready to go.

Elite Large Fully Stocked GI Issue Medic First Aid Kit Bag $139.84

There is so many different items in these kits that you are going to have to click on the link and go read what is in it on Amazon because its too numerous for me to list here.  All of these kits are nearly 5 stars, many of the reviews have a item by item list of what is in each one.  Keep in mind, this is just the basics, you may very well want to add to the kit with what we have listed above.  A kit made for  'everyone' just might not have a thing in it for 'you.'  Make it your own kit, even if you do get one of these pre-made and ready to go.



 

BONES, JOINTS & MUSCLES

Bones can get broken, muscles get swollen, pulled, bruised and joints get sore, overworked and need support.  Bones getting broken need to be stabilized, some swollen muscles need to be wrapped and other joints that are sore or have problems work a lot better when you have a brace to support them.

SAM Splint 36" Rolled - Orange & Blue $13.53

These are foam coated think aluminum sheets.  They are perfect for making splints for arms or legs or something that needs to be immobilized.   You  an even take your pair of medical scissors (above) and cut this to make it smaller so you can have a finger splint.  SAM Splint is THE #1 brand name of this item and this will do well for you.
 

4.25 X 36 Inch Padded Aluminum Splint $6.49

This is exactly the same as the above but this is the generic version of the SAM Splint.  I've used the SAM splints, and they are awesome, but I've not used the generic version.  They have great ratings and should work fine but I wanted you to have a lower priced option for your medical kits.
 

Mueller Fitted Wrist Right , Black, Large/XLarge $12.27

I don't have wrist or knee problems so these are hard for me to relate to, but people who do have wrist or knee or joint problems can tell you how valuable these are.  If you get your wrist or knee hurt, which, is very possible in a disaster, especially if you are sleep deprived, dirty, stressed, worried and helping in a rescue (without professionals around) and you hurt yourself.  A good brace will make all the difference between you being able to help and work and you not being able to help or work.
 

Mueller Self Adjusting Knee Stabilizer, One Size Fits Most, 1-Count Package $14.50

Read the description I have above about braces and then consider this for your medical kit.

There is actually a whole FAMILY of braces for everything you can think of by Mueller.  You can see them all here:

ACE Elastic Bandage with Clips, 4 Inches $5.19

Elastic wraps are another DO ALL.  Have a wound with some gauze or or blood absorber on it and you need to wrap it up tight to help prevent further bleeding ?? wrap an ACE wrap around it.  Have a swollen or injured ankle or knee, wrap it up.   Need a sling for your hurt or broken arm, make a sling from ACE wrap.   Want to look like a mummy for Halloween ??? use ACE wrap.

There are 2", 3", 4", 6" wraps, both by ACE and by generic, click the link below to see the whole family of them available on Amazon.

Self Adhesive Non Woven Cohesive Bandage 2"x5 Yards Pack of 12 "Best Selling" $19.69

Well there are ACE wraps, which, have sticky pins to hold it tight (or you can always use diaper or safety pins ABOVE) then there are these wraps.  These are COHESIVE wraps and cohesive means it sticks to itself.  All you have to do is wrap this around what you want wrapped tight and it will stick to itself, no velcro or pins or anything.  Its very convientant and yes, you can unwrap it.

 

Dynarex Sensi Wrap, Rainbow Color, Cohesive Bandage 2 Inches X 5 Yards, 36 Count $26.00

The above is 12 for $20, but that might be all you need, and enough for your friends as well, but if you want more, there it is, 36 for $26, less than a dollar a roll....and it comes in colors.

If you are cold, wet, tired, with children crying, trying to listen to the radio, keep dry, figuring out where the toilet paper is and where you are going to use it, and you have to patch up someone who's hurt... do you really need to wonder how you are going to secure the bandage to itself ?  Use this stuff.

The 1 Gallon Moonshine Still that Makes car fuel, its automatic,  Free video to watch on how to do everything is right here:
http://www.iMakeMyGas.com
If I was in a country where it is legal to make moonshine (illegal in USA to drink, but legal to make car fuel w/ free permit) then what I'd do is make moonshine and store it for a disaster, because it would trade as good as gold does.

We have Stills IN STOCK and are shipping them DAILY (for now).  Get them while we have them in stock.  You'll have it on your door step by UPS pretty quickly (No PO boxes please, USA Orders ONLY)
