    I have a solar charger for just in case the power goes out which it probably will. It would charge a phone and small electrical devices. I think I might be a bit too busy to play video games. Just a hunch.

    With power: All the comforts of home.
    Without power: probably just a solar powered charger unit to keep some GMRS/FRS radios and a small shortwave radio charged up.

    While a computer would be nice, I seriously wonder if I have time to play games, etc. in a SHTF event. IMHO surviving would be a full time job with plenty of overtime available.

    I see the benefit of a tablet loaded with a digital library as well as a means to communicate.

    A tablet or an E reader with a digital library would come in handy.

    I have a Nook with over 10,000 books loaded and I am finding more all the time to put on another SD card. I have a laptop with 1000's of movies and TV shows recorded on it. Those are the only 2 I would use after SHTF, I would not carry a cell phone (especially a smart phone) they can track those and I would not want to be found....

    This scanner is on for weather and safety alerts all the time in our house. Has battery backup that keep the radio and clock both going when powers out, and a programmable frequency band that can pick up about ANYTHING ANYONE'S going to transmit. I've got a LARGE aluminum outdoor antenna setup for it I'll plug into should S ever HTF, but keep the radio on the little antenna to help prevent the receiver being damaged from strong signals for everyday use.

    Also a few good multi-band receivers, a few FRS radios, and a TG-UV2 two way with several batteries charged. All stored in a grounded steel gun safe (Faraday cage).

    Communications will be the difference between life and death in emergency situations.

    I would like to have a very powerful desktop in my BO/ BI shelter, with as much general information installed on the hard drive as possible. Everything from survival knowledge, classic literature, music, encyclopedias, to movies, science knowledge, and the bible. I'm talking terabytes of information to be my unofficial library of the human condition. Even in the event of power failure, the information will still be there, to be retrieved later.

    I went with a Lap top and a external hard drive, much more compact..
