Portable Battery Charger

Hey neighbors!

I know I have written about this before, but I seriously need to look into getting a portable solar battery charger.  As you all have seen from my posts we travel sooooo much!  We stay in hotels so much and then camp when we can.  We are looking at another camping trip to Florida, and I am beginning to plan (on paper), things we will need, how many nights we will be in each area, and of course, all the tents and camping supplies that will need packed.

Now, I don't know how many of you go camping, but we don't always have electricity.  And of course when you are on the road you need to have your cell phone.  My husband is the worst about making sure his phone is charged.  I don't know how many times he has had to borrow someone else's because his is dead.  (We only have 5 cell phones in the family!)  So even a small portable solar battery charger would be a great advantage. That is of course not counting all our other electronic gadgets like iPods, iPads, laptops, razors, etc.

Do any of my neighbors have solar panels or other solar products?  I am wondering how well they work.  Are they easy to use?  Leave a comment and let me know about your experiences with solar power.  We have owned solar power radios and flashlights, but that would be the extent of my knowledge.  These worked well, as long as we remembered to charge them!

I am thinking a solar powered battery charger would be convenient.  I looked them up online and they come in a variety of sizes and prices.  Obviously different power levels will work for different electronics.  You would need to decide how much output you needed.  They look reasonably compact, so we should be able to use it while traveling.

The small one that I was looking at takes 6-8 hours to get a full charge.  It will then charge your phone or tablet, or the rechargeable AA batteries that come with it.  It also included a small LED flashlight built in for helping you find things in the dark.  The small panel when folded up is the size of a wallet.  Amazing!  And it all fits in a carrying case for convenience.  Maybe I should add this to a gift wish list!

I have something like this on wishlist, along with our oldest teen for scout campouts.. there are so many times I had to march up to the mess hall to get my phone charged. I knew their were products out there just did not know where to look.. thanks for sharing, I will be checking it out. I have a Zagg device now that holds a few charges and loving it, but still want something solar, in case of no power anywhere.

Sorry, I don't have any familiarity with solar powered items, but it sounds good for a battery charger!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
