Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled "Is Your Winter Car Kit Really Ready?" and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/is-your-winter-car-kit-really-ready/.
I carry several pairs of thick felt pac boot liners. If stuck for a time period we can remove shoes/boots and wear them for less constriction and more warmth.I keep an impact driver with appropriate sockets for quick tire changes, some non-perishable food, flares, hand and foot warmers, cold weather gear, space blanket, some car repair tools, jump pack, hatchet and knife, fire starters and a shovel in my winter kit. Here in the north we might actually need those things
I keep debating on whether to buy one of those or a batteryless one that has a capacitor, instead, to hold its charge; theoretically, a capacitor will keep its charge (save for internal resistive and/or chemical losses) for many years whereas a battery loses its charge way before then...which is beneficial since how often do people remember to charge a battery?Good article. An item I bought earlier this year, and have already had to use, was the NOCO GB70 jump starter device. I keep it in the truck year-round, and it's small size (even in the case I bought for it) conveniently fits in the storage area under the rear seat of my truck. The GB70 was about $199.00 when I bought it, and worth every penny.
