What personal electrical stuff do you take on ops?

#1
Serious question - PM me if you doubt why I'm asking this.....

What do you take with you that needs power? 10 years ago, a comfort box didn't have too much more than paperback books, lads mags, folding shelves, a decent pillow and a cd walkman. Now it is a different matter. I'm trying to ascertain what you take with you that needs batteries / mains power for your own comfort and amusement. I'm hearing ipods, laptops, portable dvd players, digital cameras, video cameras, rechargeable speakers. What did you take yourself and what might you take (or not take) next time, and if a change, why?

Depends where and what you will be doing.... Most MOBs have everything you need anyway...

I'd take a netbook an ipod and a HD full of 'movies of interest'.....

A King Size rabbit vibrator, an interesting pen1s massager that I was sent by Donut, a pack of slimming pills, an instruction manual for drill, some love eggs and a personal horoscope provider.

But since I am the RAF liaison officer, I find that it is only right to offer gifts that they will appreciate.

Mp3 player fed on AAA batteries, digital camera which is fed on AA batteries and that's it.

I bought those two items specifically because they ran on disposable batteries. Free supply from the QM's and no recharging to worry about.

I don't take my laptop with me when I'm away as the risk of damage or theft is too great and I'll take a stock of books from my shelves and swap them once I'm done. Don't like Kindle; again fine in camp but once you're out on the ground you don't care if your paperback gets soggy.

You have heard quite wrong my good man, they have problems with the LapTop (Probably take a week) but they are fine on everything else.
I agree - the Powermonkey worked well for me. Even during MRX (but it was summertime). Another thing and depending on where you are and the reliability of power supply - one of those power surge protecter plug thingies to stop your laptop going up in smoke.

Plus there's the powerchimp, charges everything the same as the monkey but you use aa batteries instead on the solar charger. It's an add on to the kit plus use if with the solar charger and it'll charge aa's and aaa's. Nice and compatible all round and if you get free batteries then win all round!
