Out here in the outbacks, I getting good use from solar panel. Solar panel is cut edge of technologies that harness power of sun to help cook tin of beans at campsite. All I do is plug panel into Mr Aleksandr’s plane, then 72 hours later I have enough energy for watch two whole episodes of Sean Bean romancing ladies in ‘Sharpe’ betamax. Is like live in future! I have not seen such technologies since days work on ‘Meer’ space program. However, although good if you are camp in bright sunny place, if you are camp in Russia then I suggest bring a couple of hundred spare batteries. Otherwise you watch no Sean Bean and eat your beans cold.
