Many of us are preparing on a budget and so we have given up buying (or at least cut back on) products in order to purchase items we feel will help us in the event of an emergency.
One of the downsides to this is that we don’t get the pleasure of using or playing with our “Just In Case goodies” because most of the time the items that we purchase are put away on a shelf for “Just In Case”. Well, this is one goodie that you can use now and feel secure knowing that it’s also a great JIC purchase.
Meet the Guide 10 Plus Adventure Kit. I own one of these little gems and never leave home without it. It has saved me from the frustration of a dead cell phone battery more than once. It also gives me the peace of mind knowing that if I lost power and couldn’t charge my small portables via wall outlets, I have a compact, portable way to stay connected & powered on.
The Guide 10 Plus is capable of charging your smartphone, GPS, iPod, or other hand-held device directly from the sun in 1-2 hours via the Nomad 7 Solar Panel. Or charge up the Guide 10 Plus battery pack and then recharge your phone later 1-3 times. I’ve used it both ways and it has worked perfectly. The kit retails for $159 but if you email me and mention this post, you can add it to your preps AND get to use it now for just $120.

If you are interested in all the techy stuff about the kit, I’ve added it to the end of this post. If you are interested in purchase one, just shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to have one ready for you to pick up.
As always, I hope you and yours have a Blessed week!
