Who Says Your Disaster Preparedness Kit Has To Be Boring?

We all know that putting together a disaster preparedness kit can be a bore at times. All that canned food and water, talk about a real snoozer. But there is hope! Check out these tech savvy ideas to include which are guaranteed to excite that dull plastic tub in your garage.   

Self-Powered Safety Hub
This hand-cranked multitasker not only includes an AM/FM radio, but a USB charger (with cable), and a flashing beacon, so even if you're out of power, you can hear emergency alerts and power up your cell.

Clear2Go Sport Bottle
 This isn't your regular sports bottle — the Clear2Go has a built-in filter to weed out 99.9 percent of microbial cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia), reduces the taste and odor of chlorine, and filters up to 100 gallons of water.

Joos Orange Solar Charger
Power up your phones fast: the Joos Orange can juice up your phones for two hours of 3G talk time in just one hour. Plus, it has adapters for most GPS units, gaming devices, laptops, and is super slim so there's no excuse not to have one in your kit.

Tool Logic Survival Card
This tiny, credit card-sized tool holds tweezers, a toothpick, flashlight, whistle, and a two-inch blade, along with a handy firestarter.

Disaster can strike without warning at anytime. Make sure you have taken the steps to be prepared. When being prepared, take some time and have some fun by purchasing these geek esentials. Lets face it, the true disaster would be stranded with an uncharged iPhone. If you have the portable safety hub with built in usb charger in your kit, the crisis is averted and you can now alert the world via Facebook, of the disaster that has struck!
