Not too long ago, I saw a rechargeable battery go on sale. It was around 10 bucks and I figured if it was bad I won't lose too much. It turns out it's AWESOME! It's easy to plugin and throw in a bag, It has two USB ports that make it really easy to share with someone else on the couch. I like this item a lot and I wouldn't recommend it unless I used it.
I ended up buying two of these.
As we enter hurricane season, I remember all the blackouts from the last hurricane and think these will make a nice addition to the preparedness kit.
