What Items Do You Or Would You Store In Your Own Faraday Cage?

what-to-keep-in-faraday-cage

Some of you (including me) know of the vulnerability that we face with regards to the risk of ‘natural’ or ‘man-made’ EMP (electromagnetic pulse), which has the potential to destroy our electronic components and electronic infrastructure – and maybe even bring down the grid.

As a precaution, some of you (including me) may stash some particular items in a do-it-yourself Faraday cage for protection from an EMP.

So, I have two questions for you:

1. What specific items do you (or would you) store in a Faraday cage?
2. What is the rationale for each of these items?

Okay, lets hear from you. When we’ve got a good list going, I’ll update this article to reflect what seems to be the priority items that you’ve selected…

(I’ve done this before, so no cheating and looking up the last article 😉 )

1. Battery charger (solar powered setup w/rechargeable batteries)
2. Portable radio receiver (AM/FM, Shortwave)
3. 2-way radios (FRS/GMRS, ‘walkie-talkies’, etc..)
