    Noco genius power boost

    So goodbye to the old days of jumper cables! I bought myself one of these about 4 or 5 months ago. Noco seems to be the best but there are tons of companies making them now. The build quality is excellent. So I have had it sitting in my garage after the first initial charge and it's still at...

    Who uses a UPS  (Uninterruptible Power Supply) on their computer still? I got rid of mine a while ago and just bought really good surge protectors. Who still uses one, and do you recommend a certain brand over another? APC, Cyberpower, Tripplite?

    UPS - uninterruptible power supplies

    I am a firm believer in them. They are great to have and would recommend them to anyone wanting to protect their computers and equipment. But I hate to say it I am about done with them.

    Solar panel for power lines

    Driving into work today I noticed the power lines located along side of the road. I thought to myself why not have a 3foot x 3foot solar panel installed on top of each line? It could be easily serviced and have a 360 degree pivot to angle the best for the sun and say a 75 degree angle. It could...

    Power producing gyms

    Why not find a way to put all the biking and energy created by people at a gym to create power and save on the gym's energy costs? Basically have the bikes connected to a power collection unit and then store that power or use it to partially power the gym.
