    I would put my e-readers in them. I am not sure when things can safely be removed. I am sure someone on here could tell us. Right now I store my e-readers in an old microwave.

    I don't have any Faraday bags so can offer no input on those. I do have a Faraday EmComm box and a Faraday trashcan.

    Think about it. Faraday Bags are for protecting items from an EMP attack. An EMP attack will destroy the electric grid. What will still be useful with no centralized power, or limited solar power?

    Not computers, no internet left. Not cellphones, no relay towers. Not GPS, not AM/FM radios, nothing that connects to a network.

    Shortwave radios that can be recharged with solar power can get news from overseas, the solar recharging equipment, like Auntie said - e-readers that have SHTF info on them, wind up flashlights, these are all useful post-EMP. I'm sure I'm missing a lot.

    As to when you can remove them? When the attacks are over, your guess is as good as anyone else's.

    That is why I have 2 e-readers with the same things on them. Have one that stays in there to keep it safe.

    How effective are Faraday Bags? What are the best kind to get?

    Don't want to change the topic, but why doesn't someone make an e-reader, or I-pad type device, that has a display screen that doubles as a photoelectric collector for recharging the device. Simply leave your device in the light, and it's always charged. I'd buy one.

    I'm not real concerned about being able to receive short wave, radio or any other kind of communication after an EMP event. I'm planning to be on my own and off-grid (with family) for a long while. I think it will be a long while before things start to get back to semi-normal after any sort of attack. I'm not sure I would trust what I heard over the airwaves very much anyway. It might just be propaganda from the attackers, who would probably be in the best position to communicate at that point.

    I don't have any expertise in the matter what-so-ever, but lately, I've been reading that old microwaves won't do any good as a faraday cage. Hopefully, someone will do research on it and do a report for everyone. I'd hate to see people counting on something that won't do what they are expecting it to do.
