Working On My Preps
Was at CVS today and they had all of the Halloween items at 75% off. So i stopped and looked at the items and found a box set of 30 LED lights(Orange) The set has a bulb life of 25,000 hours and is 7.5 feet long. The best part is one set of 30 LED lights is 2.4watts(0.02 amps) so it will use very little power on my 12 volt power setup. I could use this set to have low light at night in a room or two in the house. I bought all they had and that was a total of 5 sets so that gives me 150 LED lights at 12 total watts and 0.10 amps. I think this will work well even on a small battery setup. I plan to build a battery cart with wheels so I can move it around and still plug it into the solar hookup to charge. I think I will look for Christmas lights after the shopping season and find them marked down. That way I may be able to find some in clear and I think the clear will put off even more light than the orange. I think the little things that we find are what will help make our days after the fall even better. The little item that now is just a little bit of junk could be a big deal in the post event of doom. Keep your eye's open and your ear to the ground because the evil is just over the hill and night is coming. And as always stock up on food, water and medical supplies!!!!
