The Audew Jump Starter: Gear You Can Really Use!

We like our gear to be multi-purpose.  As Preppers hover over the line of old-world skills vs high-tech modern life, gear that is multi-functional can be very helpful.  The Audew Jump Starter is one of those pieces of gear that is multi-functional and very practical for everyone (that’s you, you non-prepper reading this)!

The Audew Jump Starter is made up of a 13,800 mAh battery pack that can jump-start a vehicle.  For those of you who are old school, you might not think that this little brick, not much bigger than a dollar bill, could do it, but it can!

The Audew Jump Starter is programmed with smart technology that protects the battery bank from overheating, overcharging and over-discharging too!  It comes with multiple ways to charge it, 12 volts and AC and with various plugs that will allow you to run a 12-volt device, like a fan or charge your tablet, smartphone or GPS device.

Really, this little device packs a punch!  It is very affordable at just under $60 and comes with its own soft-shell case that holds all of the components.  The battery pack boasts over 200 5 Star reviews on the Audew website and can be purchased on Amazon too.

Check out the pics below and don’t miss my unboxing video below.

Audew Jump Starter – The Total Package – Battery bank, Jumper Cables, AC and 12 volt Power cords, 12-volt adapter, USB Multi-function cord and soft shell case.

The Battery Bank is a little longer than a dollar bill.

You can get an idea of the thickness of this Batter Bank in this PIC.

View of the Input port and USB output. The Battery Bank also has an LED flashlight.

Jumping a vehicle is no problem! This little Battery Bank packs a punch!

You can charge and use the 12 volt capacity of this Battery Bank.

Multi-adapter USB cord comes with the Jump Starter Pack.

The whole setup comes in a nice soft-shell case.

Everything has its place!

What Does A Collapse in the United States Look Like?

The Preparedness Community talks a lot about collapse.  Books are written, articles are posted, podcasts are produced, videos are uploaded that all discuss this topic.  We can look at various countries around the world like Venezuela, Argentina and Greece who have collapsed.  We can even look to history and study collapsed empires.  But we don’t really know what a collapse in The United States would really look like.  We can only imagine what it might “look like.”

One powerful medium to help us imagine what life might be like in a collapse scenario is video.  We have become a visual society, getting our information and learning more and more from videos.  This is apparent when you realize that Youtube is the second biggest search engine behind Google.

The Colony Collapse in the United States

One of the videos that I tend to think about when I think of collapse is the TV series The Colony.  The Colony was produced by The Discovery Channel.  They released two seasons of the show.  The idea behind the show was to throw a group of 10 people together to see how they would survive in a collapse scenario.

Although I enjoyed both seasons, I really thought season one was valuable to the new prepper.  The group deals with the need to have the essentials in an urban setting.  The group also has to learn how to deal with many other scenarios that would come in a collapse scenario within their urban setting, like looters, gangs, scrounging for resources etc.

I watched this series early on in my preparedness.  I recently thought about this first season after asking the question on the Prepper Website Facebook Group, “If you could have anyone on your survival team, real or imaginary (like from a movie or book), who would it be? AND WHY?”

There is one person in this season that I would want to have in my survival group.  If you watch the season, you’ll quickly know who I’m talking about.  His skills and knowledge would be way too valuable to not have in your group!

Luckily, because of Youtube, you can easily watch all of Season 1.  I’ve included Season 1, Episode 1 here below.  When you are ready to watch the rest of the series, you can CLICK HERE.  They are all there and it is fun, entertaining and eye-opening as it can give you an idea of what you might encounter in a collapse.

Enjoy the Show!  And if you feel like leaving your takeaways, feel free to do it in the comment section.

Peace,
Todd

Tensions have built to the point where the rest of the group members want you to take decisive action and handle the situation.  What would you do to restore order?

SCENARIO – Someone in your group has gear that would be better used in the hands of another member who’s more experienced.  The owner doesn’t want to lend his equipment because modern society has collapsed, and his gear is now irreplaceable.  Giving his gear to the more qualified person would be a great advantage to your group. 

As the group’s leader, do you force the man to lend his equipment in order to give the entire group a much needed advantage or do you respect his right to his own property?

Can we gain insight into the societal collapse of the Roman Empire?

As preppers, we should pay attention to what is happening in our world.  Not only should we pay attention to the current attitudes and beliefs, but it is advantageous for us to try and see patterns and forecast what things might “look-like” in case a societal collapse is in our future.  A future where we might find ourselves and most definitely, our children will find themselves in.

When many people think about The Roman Empire, flashes of greatness come to mind.  Many think of all the advances that came from Rome, the architecture, the political system, etc…  But Rome, like every society, collapsed and fell.

The societal collapse and demise of the Roman Empire is something that should be very interesting to modern man.  Could we learn from the mistakes of this huge empire?  Could we learn so we don’t repeat the same mistakes?

Of course, my interest in the Fall of the Roman Empire is due to my desire to understand and observe the signs that are apparent as we look back at what caused this great empire to fall.

Read a previous article – The United States – The New Rome?

There are plenty of historical documents and research done on the societal collapse of the Roman Empire.  You could spend your lifetime researching this topic.  I would like to share a video from The History Channel’s series on The Roman Empire. This episode specifically deals with the Fall of the Roman Empire.

Watching Societal Collapse

The Fall of Rome really picks up starting in 190 A.D., after the murder of Commodus, a crazy emperor who fought as a gladiator and walked the streets of Rome dressed as Hercules.

Some of the takeaways are:

  • Civil war broke out as armies wanted to have their general installed as Emperor.  This weakened the army.
  • The Empire had become unmanageable. It had become too big.
  • Political power was in too few hands.
  • Rome had turned its back on the common man.  The elite were isolated from the poor.
  • Games kept people occupied.  At one point, there were games 170 days  out the year.  It was an entertainment-based culture.
  • Resentment from other nations that Rome had conquered was very real.  Other nations hated Rome.
  • Barbarian migration towards the West put pressure on Empire’s resources.
  • Rome needed to build and maintain a huge army.  This strained the economy.
  • As a result, Romans were taxed heavily and inflation ensued.
  • Government just became too big!
  • Rome was not flexible in compromising with non-Romans. They were arrogant.

Some people who read the above and watch the video below will see many similarities to the current state of affairs of The United States.  Many won’t want to see the similarities.

For the prepper, we need to stay aware of what is happening in our country and world and decide what that means for our families and loved ones.  Will we see the signs of societal collapse before us or will we be entertained into a sleepy unawareness?

Watch the video below and share your thoughts in the comments.

SCENARIO – You and your group have been surviving well after the collapse, but other people weren’t so lucky.  From time to time, someone finds your group and begs for food.

Today, however, a man is asking for a test to prove himself worthy to be part of your group.  What would you tell him?
