VIDEO: HALO 3000 mAh portable charger: Gear Review

Here  my review of the HALO 3000 mAh portable charger. We got two of them for $54.96 from QVC. You can also get them from the company, Halo2Cloud LLC. I ran several tests and talk about the results.

One point I didn’t mention in the video. When I first received them, one was not working. I called the company and they immediately replaced it – within four days I had a replacement. My only disappointment was that the replacement was black instead of OD Green. But that was a minor point (black also happens to be a pretty cool color). The company was very responsive and took care of the replacement issue immediately.

Night Vision for Preppers

We were talking about night vision today on Twitter (#PrepperTalk), so I thought I’d post a few good videos I found on the subject by some highly respected preppers: YouTube’s Southernprepper1 and MainePrepper. Night vision equipment is expensive, but a very important combat multiplier. You will want to do a lot of research to make sure you make a good decision before plunking down 1K-4K on this prep. The below videos are from highly respected preppers and should be helpful.
