Not the worst Emergency Radio you can buy. Just got one for my father in law the down side being without some "creative" electrical work with it, it will not accept regular aa or aaa batteries. Just crank and solar. That being said it has the weather bands and is half of what we paid for his.

Looks like the Goal Zero solar charger 7-watt kit with power pack is a good price right now, two sources:

Costco, search for "Goal Zero Portable Solar Power Essentials Kit" for $110 (this is the "Plus" 1.0A version)

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...=1&topnav=&s=1

and

looks like Amazon dropped their prices to undercut. They were selling for $120 at Amazon but now $91. Called the "Goal Zero Guide 10 Adventure Kit." It is the non-plus .5A version.




I think the Costco "plus" is the same as GZs kit sold here for $160:

http://www.goalzero.com/shop/p/79/Gu...nture-Kit/1:1/

Here's a link to a video. Again, skip the top link and go to the one in the black box below.




EDIT: The "plus" (or lack thereof) refers to the amperage out for the battery pack, ie, the "Guide 10 Power Pack" part of the kit. They come in .5A output (no plus) and 1.0 output (plus) versions. According to GZ's CS, the 1.0A was built for people who wanted to charge their tablet devices. Whereas the .5A is built for recharging cellphones. More or less. Even CS seemed to be hazy on exactly what the 1.0A would do for you beyond "that's what you need for an iPad."

I'm suspicious that GZ is shifting over to all "PLUS" because of iPad demand. I don't even find the Guide 10 Adventure Kit on GZ's website in a non-plus version. This may be why these are on sale?

Whether you'd want .5A or 1.0A output is your call...I want to charge eneloops (factory charger does .3A for 4) and a smartphone that wants .5A, so for me, I think the older .5 non-plus is best. YMMV.

IIRC, iPad wants 2 amps, will charge slowly at 1A.
iPhone wants 1 amp.

You need to call them, I buy from them frequently and they are a quick shipper and all around good company.

Sounds correct. Since posting discovered that the .5A is dodgy for an iPhone4, it really wants 1A, and the iPad won't do anything with .5A.

Nice price! Unfortunately to my AO it's + $7 shipping. Might be worth it with a recommendation that they're quality... Have you tried these, can verify they don't leak?

Just ordered them for first time, myself... I will give them some good testing when I get them.

I ordered two sets (total of 4 bottles) to make the shipping worth it.

Cabelas has the Discontinued MSR Wisperlite International Stove on sale for only $60. This "International" version of the stove burns white gas, unleaded gasoline, or Kerosene. MSR upgraded the legs to stamped steel for 2012, so Im guessing Cabelas bought a bunch of lasts years stock. Other camping stores are still selling this 2011 version for the full $90.

I would not be worried about it being discontinued, as MSR is still selling parts to maintain stoves they sold decades ago. They are also good at sending replacement parts at no charge for my MiniWorks water filter. I do not own the stove, so I cant really comment about performace, but so many others seem to love the things.

The ability to burn unleaded gas, and kerosene are what I like it, and the stove is somewhat backpackable.

$60 seems like a steal to me...too bad Im broke for a few weeks.

Now...how did you have advanced knowledge of this? The "adventure" is the one with the 7 watt solar panel (not the 3.5).

For comparison Costco was recently selling this same kit for $109, with the Luna Light and 8 cells.

Currently Amazon's got it for $77 (minus the AAAs and the Luna Light, which total to $20) so it's a heckuva deal.

There's a timer saying only 2 hours remaining.

NOTE: Just noticed: This comes with the Guide 10, not the Guide 10 Plus power pack. GZ is trying to blow out its stock of the old Guide 10s, apparently. What this means essentially is that you can charge an older cell phone but probably not a new one like an iPhone, which needs more amperage.

You can charge an iPhone but not an iPad Bolster. I check them in the morning and they have a teaser for certain specials that are coming up. I was not going to be available when the price hit so I gave an advance heads up. This is a smoking price for that.

Fwiw, Buck 119 knives with the leather sheaths for $33.90 at Farm & Fleet; they're nearly twice that in a lot of places. They're (allegedly) in stock with very reasonable shipping as well - I ordered two of them for $72.75 total, including shipping.

http://www.farmandfleet.com/products...ial_knife.html

They're not my favorite knife by any means (I just don't like the grip material or shape either one), but the fact is they're objectively very good knives that would serve most people well for several lifetimes.

These two are intended for others as handouts and not for me personally, but it's a very good price on a very good knife regardless of my personal tastes & preferences. One caveat - I haven't seen the 119's come with leather sheaths in several years, so the "leather sheath" reference may just be an old description on their website. But at this price (and the role I intend these for), I won't be shocked or even too annoyed if they do come with the newer nylon sheaths instead of leather.

Even though I don't personally "like" them that much and don't need them either, I still bought two more of them; that's how good a deal I see this as. And I'm not sure how many 119's we already have, but it's more than several. They really are that good imo and this is a price I haven't seen them at in years; well worth a look for anyone in the market for a very capable sheath knife. Whether the intended role is primary, backup, spare, or handout, the 119 is awfully good.

That is a decent price on those. I like my 119. I have never figured out what it does great, but it does so many things good enough, that I have one with me everytime I go camping. I like the size of it. Not too big for a sheath knife.

Good way to put it. If it was two hundred dollars, I'd say there were better options. If it were a hundred dollars, I'd say it might still be worth it; just "might", based on its very-good steel, its decades-long proven track record, and the fact that most semi-decent knives seem to approach a hundred dollars nowadays.

But at $36 delivered, it's a heck of a deal imo.

I only find them for $100 on the website. My local Academy has a dozen, at $90.
