Hurricane Preparedness: After you’ve assembled your hurricane kit, it’s time to think outside-the-box when it comes to emergency readiness. If your home loses and then gets back power after you evacuate, you might not realize the electricity ever stopped. Therefore, you might not be sure if your frozen food is safe to eat. If you freeze a cup of water in advance and leave a quarter on top, you’ll be able to make that determination quickly. If the quarter is still on top, you’re safe. If the quarter is underneath the ice after the storm, you better throw out your frozen food.
If you’re riding out the hurricane rather than evacuating, you’ll want to have enough non-perishable food, medicines and water to last each person in your family for at least one week. Don’t forget cash – ATMs won’t work if the power goes out – and batteries for cell phones, radios and other devices.
Here are several items you’ll need:
Water – at least 1 gallon daily per person for 3-7 days; also fill the bathtub and other containers; sports drinks are good to fend off dehydration
Food – at least enough for 3-7 days; non-perishable packaged or canned food; juices; foods for infants or elderly family members; snack foods; food for special diets
Non-electric can opener
Cooking tools, fuel
Paper plates and cups, plastic utensils
Bedding: blankets, pillows, etc.
First aid kit, medicines, prescription drugs
Toiletries, hygiene items, moisture wipes, dry shampoo
Flashlight, batteries, lanterns
Radio: Battery operated and NOAA weather radio
Telephones: Fully charged cell phone with extra battery; chargers; traditional (not cordless) telephone set
Cash (with some small bills) and credit cards: Banks and ATMs may not be available for extended periods
Important documents: Place in a waterproof container or watertight resealable plastic bag: Should include insurance, medical records, bank account numbers, Social Security card, prescriptions, etc.
Tools: Keep a set with you during the storm
Gas: Fill up your vehicles several days before landfall is expected; Gas stations could lose power during a storm and supply trucks may not be able to reach the area
Pet care items: Proper identification, immunization records, medications, ample supply of food and water; a carrier or cage; muzzle and/ or leash
Bleach without lemon or any other additives
Toys, books and games for children
Cell phone charging stations — locations where you can charge mobile devices

Today, I will hack a Kobalt 24V USB battery connector and turn it into a 24V connector for my electric vehicles. I will also do a short review on this unit.
I made 2 of these. For the hack, I made an improvement on the second one which took much less time and it was much easier to make. But I will show you how I did it on both units.
Update: I have tried it on all my electric vehicles: ebike, electric scooter, and electric go kart and they all worked great! And they look great, too!
This video is about charging the Trend Airshield Pro Battery Pack with a smart charger.
Link to notes on how to charge this Ni-cad battery.
12-26-17 – I contacted Trend Support and got the reply that the charger that came with my Airshield Pro is a smart charger. See link below. Still, it should be disconnected from the charger once full. At least it will not continue to send a full charge rate.
when plugged into a ‘live’ outlet, and no battery connected LED illuminates as green to show a live circuit. When connected to an under charged battery, in helmet or battery cradle, the LED changes to red. When battery charging is complete, the LED changes back to green and battery is on a trickle charge.

We’ve been struggling with our battery bank for quite some time and we’ve finally gotten around to trying out this battery hack! We have a couple of batteries that are really dragging down the overall voltage of the battery bank and are also showing signs of failing… so this is our last attempt to save those batteries. The best part… if this works, we’re only out $20/battery and each battery can retail at $450 or more! I think it’s worth the test.
