    Great episode. I was on here to check about the charger also, but went web searching after I saw the other posts. While I’d wait for confirmation from these guys, it sure looks to me like the one by Solio. It has the three petal design. Lists at around $100.

    I’m pretty sure it was a Solio Classic. http://www.solio.com/charger/solio-charger-classic.html

    The yard lights not only make good emergency lighting, they work by recharging one AA battery each. Simply remove the battery from the solar unit and use them in your Mini Mag Light, or other AA battery application. They come with cheap AA cells, but will charge-up better quality rechargable AA’s.

    Not a very good website. Should publish a synopsis of each episode so you can have a written list of the specific things that are recommended.

    Certainly not a survival expert, but after almost 30 years in the military, I always thought the proper term was “digging in”… not “bugging in”. Digging in and Bugging out. Am I wrong. No big deal really.

    Like the bug in episode! Really interested in the solar charger for the cell phone. I have a survival radio that has the built in light and covers AM, FM, SW and has weather frequencies. It has a crank handle to charge the battery pack and can also charge cellphones, but it doesn’t have the adapter for my Rugby phone. I think Wal-Mart had those yard solar powered lights for 2 dollars a piece, just might have to buy me about 10 of them to keep around. Some good ideas on this show.

    The forums are a great place to get info about the things that are recommended. That said, I really do like how MB lists all he’s talked about on Down range Radio, but because I know that everything is talked about in the forums, it’s not a real big deal that he doesn’t do the same for the TV show.

    The man has a full plate people, he cannot do everything for you.
