Being able to stay connected to family and friends when we’re out and about is important. We have small, portable battery chargers for the kids to use when they are on school trips and we keep several charged so we can easily grab them when we are heading out the door for trips that might be spent away from a power outlet (like a hospital waiting room, bus trips or airport terminals). But what about how to keep connected in emergencies? Have you thought about how you can stay charged when there are power outages and you need something a little bigger?

How to Keep Connected in Emergencies
Being prepared for emergencies is something that we all know is important. We store extra water bottles, batteries and make sure we have a heat source. We even make sure we have an emergency family go bag ready in case we need to pack up and evacuate.
In emergency situations when the power goes out, it’s important to be able to hear what is happening in the outside world.
Several years ago we found ourselves in the middle of one of the worst ice storm in Kentucky history. OUr whole area was out of power, water and telephone service for days. One of the things that we all relied on was the radio so we could hear what gas stations were open and when the groceries were being restocked. Yes, it’s important to keep batteries on hand, but another option is a larger battery bank like the AdventureUltra.
The AdventureUltra is one of our largest battery banks and has the highest power output. Designed to replace the heavy and bulky generators used when tailgating or camping, the AdventureUltra is a streamlined power source that can run a 42-inch television for up to three hours. The AdventureUltra has a maximum power output of 45 watts, enough to run a fan or recharge a drone battery. It can also be used with 2 in 1 laptops and new laptops, such as the 12-inch MacBook, that require less than 45 watts either when powered off and solely charging or when powered on and charging simultaneously.
