ReadySet lets you use your gadgets anywhere

Here’s the thing about renewable energy: making it work for you is a pain in the ass. This is why the ReadySet is such a godsend: You can finally be environmentally friendly without having to actually give anything up.

Not that a solar panel is the only way to charge it, which is the clever part. You can hook it up to a portable windmill, for example. Everything about the system is pretty simple to configure, so if you want to hook it up to pretty much anything, you can.

The charger for the battery also has some plugs built into it. Specifically there are two USB plugs and two cigarette lighter jacks. You can already see where this is going: you just need to bring the kit with you to the park and instead of talking to people, you can use your computer all day. Yes, nerds love it for precisely this reason.

But nonetheless, it’s useful both for charging stuff in the park, and just a general disaster preparedness kit: with this, you’ll never have to worry about your phone dying.
