Have you ever gone on a camping trip with non preppers?

This project was born from a camping with my better half and a group of friends. These friends are not of our prepper mindset and as such had no way to recharge their phones, batteries or run any kind of device that required power. [Read more…]

How to Build a Homemade Thermoelectric Generator

Thermoelectric GeneratorHow to Build a Homemade Thermoelectric Generator

A thermoelectric generator uses the concept of difference in temperature between two materials to create electricity. So could this technology be adapted to make a thermoelectric generator at home? As a matter of fact one can quite easily, though the efficiency of such a generator is no going to be terribly high, it certainly can be put to practical use.

One can use Peltier powered thermoelectric generator at home by following the steps below:

  • Buy two radiators at an IT store and apply thermal fan paste to facilitate sticking of the Peltier unit.
    Now separate the two radiators with an appropriate thermal insulator.
  • Next carve out an opening in the insulator to accommodate the Peltier unit. Enough space should be left for a couple of wires as well.
  • Now rig the assembly together and start applying heat to one of the radiators. The longer that you do it, more will be the current that will flow out from your homemade thermoelectric generator.
  • Depending upon the size of our generator you will be able to power more and more devices or gadgets in your home. Typical examples are mobile phone charging.
  • Running a small radio and making LED light come alive. It is also a great idea to use these to power outdoor fans and lighting that are not connected to your home’s power grid.

5 reasons why you shouldn’t count on a generator when T-SHTF.

Generators are great for short term power outages.  They are relatively cheap and can be sourced from most home improvement stores.  If the grid goes down for a few days after a major storm generators help to keep the food in the fridge from spoiling, keep the sump pump running and make sure a few lights stay on inside the home.  However for long term grid down (SHTF) outages, generators should not be counted on to provide life sustaining support, and here’s why… [Read more…]

Generator Maintenance For Preparedness

Generator Maintenance For Preparedness

One of the most basic preparedness items is a generator. They do a great job for short-term power outage situations and many people have them. What many people ignore however is generator maintenance – which is crucial in order to be assured that during the next power outage, it will be ready to run. Imagine firing up your generator in the middle a winter snow storm only to discover it doesn’t start?! [Read more…]

Free Energy & Development Plans Electricity Power Generator

Many people are looking for green and free energy to power their homes.
While searching online they get confused by the amount of information and offerings available.
The big problem is knowing which one you can really trust.
The average person doesn’t have the time, energy or expertise to test these solutions.
These solution,Liberty Generator (Build and make your own energy source) worked SO well that I managed to pull together enough electricity that could easily supply all the power needed for an average house.
In a world of problems and solutions, few ideas spur both immediate hope and skepticism as the idea of free energy, and, on the brink of ecological disaster, nothing may be of greater importance to the human race.

A Super Quiet Generator Can Help Protect You From Dangerous People

I know that some of you don’t believe that we will ever have a situation where things become so bad that we have to take measures to protect ourselves from marauders. The intention of this article isn’t to debate that topic but rather to present a scenario and then let you decide for yourself.

Let’s just assume that a major crisis were to happen that causes a run on the grocery stores and people who haven’t prepared, quickly use up their available resources. History has proven that during times of major natural disasters, looters and marauders will take drastic measures to steal what they need to survive with. [Read more…]

This project was born from a camping with my better half and a group of friends. These friends are not of our prepper mindset and as such had no way to recharge their phones, batteries or run any kind of device that required power.

(Personally, I welcome the screen-free days.)

We were camping for 5 days so it wasn’t long before they started to come to me to use my inverter. I normally have a small 150w stashed in the trunk for emergencies, or times like these. [Read more…]
