How to Charge Your Phone and Stay Warm in Power Outages

Wondering how to stay warm and keep your phone charged during a power outage? Lifestyle expert Trae Boge has a hack for charging your phone. All you need is a nine-volt battery, a spring from inside a pen and a car charger for your phone. If you’re looking to stay warm, you can use bubble wrap on windows to trap warm air in and keep cold air out. And if you’re looking for a light source, headlamps and flashlights fastened to a jug of water create lanterns for indoors.

    So just as a general rule with the normal batteries you will probably need a couple of them to even get a decent bit of charge, the lifehack is great in case of an emergency where you NEED your phone.

    Jesus love you, he died on the cross for you, accept him as your lord and savior he can change everything. For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life" (Jn 3:16" But you must repent too. From that time Jesus went about preaching and saying, Let your hearts be turned from sin, for the kingdom of heaven is near. (Matthew 4:17)@

    Obviously it’s mainly for people with WiFi so you can better prepare yourself if you’re in a bad situation instead of waiting for a bad situation so now you’re caught with your pants down like in Texas. And it would serve Texans well for the uncertain future once they get power. Honestly we as a country need PSA messages about survival during power outages and other situations especially when you can’t rely on a phone.
