Introducing the Hydra-Light: The Salt Water Powered Lantern & Charger!
I think this is one of the coolest SHTF items that I have seen on Kickstarter. This is a 16 LED lantern, very bright and long lasting that is charged by a chemical reaction as a result of filling the base with seawater. Amazing! The lantern can last for 250 hours on a single power rod. That’s a months worth of nights at 8 hours per night with an uninterrupted light source. This beauty can also charge around 8-10 medium sized smartphones. So if SHTF, at least we can still play Angry Birds, am I right? 😉
Less expensive than batteries, cheaper and safer than Kerosene, the creators are hoping future products on the drawing board will make a big difference in the lives of the 1.2 billion people living in poverty beyond the reach of the electrical power grid. I can get behing that.
