An Emergency Preparedness Check List

If a disaster strikes in your community, you might not have access to food, water, or electricity for several days.

LFP batteries are lithium iron phosphate batteries, with LFP standing for lithium ferrophosphate. The LFP chemistry offers a longer cycle life than other lithium-ion approaches, and like nickel-based rechargeable batteries (and unlike other lithium ion batteries), LFP batteries...

To begin with, the InteliEnergy lamp can be used as a desktop or shelf lamp. It has a small footprint, is light weight, and can be conveniently set almost anywhere it’s needed. The lamp itself features an integrated shelf for holding a mobile phone, and the feet of the lamp are designed to wrap the device cord...
