How A Near Deadly Mistake Helped A Grandma Discover A Power Supply That Takes On Natural Disasters

"Mom… Mom… Are you in there… Mom!”

I could hear my daughter frantically banging on the front door with both fists. She was out of breath and screaming at the top of her lungs. Her voice sounded like it was about to give out. My heart was pounding…

Because there and then, I knew I was going to live…

I can still remember the exact moment the power went out. We had this huge thunderstorm in the middle of the night…

About one, two o’clock in the morning…

And you could hear this wild, thunderous boom…

Actually, several thunderous booms…

It was funny the first time she said it…

And then, all of a sudden…

Deathly silence…

I tried to switch the bedside lamp on…

But nothing…

I sat there alone in the pitch black…

At that point I wasn’t at all worried…

Living in Florida, I was used to outages. I assumed it would be a couple of hours and everything would be back to normal…

So I went back to sleep…

I had no idea what was to come…

The next morning when I woke up, I tried the lamp again, just to test…

Still nothing…

Being retired, I had no place to be, so I decided to wait it out…

Absent-mindedly, I went to fry myself some eggs for breakfast…

I opened the refrigerator and it didn’t feel fully cold inside…

I prodded at a piece of lunch meat and it felt warm to touch…

I started wondering if the food in the refrigerator was still good after six or so hours…

But I convinced myself eggs would be fine…

Until I remembered the outage meant I couldn’t cook anyway!

I fixed myself a bowl of cereal with lukewarm milk…

I was annoyed everything in the refrigerator was going to have to go in the trash…

And everything in the freezer…

Living alone, I kept a heap of ready meals…

In total it must have been a couple hundred dollars worth of food…

But there was nothing I could do now except wait for the power to come back on…

My daughter lived a few hours south of me with her husband and kids…

I decided to call her to update her and tell her I was waiting things out…

I started dialing and my cellphone went blank…

The power outage meant it hadn’t charged through the night.

It wasn’t long after that I realized I was in serious trouble…

I decided to go and try to use a neighbors’ phone in case my daughter was worried…

But when I got to the door, I saw exactly what those thunderous booms had been…

The front of my house was obscured by a huge tree…

The tree must have been pulled down by the storm…

I couldn’t get out of the front door for help…

I started panicking…

There were thousands of thoughts racing through my mind…

Then it struck me…

A single ray of hope…

The generator in the garage!

I could charge my cellphone and call for help…

Maybe I could even rescue the food in the refrigerator…

Plus I could switch on the TV or radio to find out when I could expect the power back…

I went into the garage attached to the house and started rooting around for the generator…

After a few minutes of searching, I found it amongst my husband’s tool kits (I couldn’t bear to throw them away when he passed)…

I dragged the weighty generator into the kitchen and tried to get it started…

To be honest, I had no idea how to use it…

And whatever I did, I couldn’t get the darn thing working…

But I later found out this was a blessing in disguise…

It was 72 long hours later that my daughter saved me… When I found out I’d done something incredibly foolish that could have cost me my life…

Over those 3 days I really did wonder if I was going to survive…

In fact, I’ve never been more afraid…

But it was a different kind of fear than I’ve ever experienced…

Being stuck alone in my own home, living off the remnants of my store cupboard…

Not being able to use my CPAP machine at night…

Wondering if anyone even knew I was in trouble…

It was a kind of slow, creeping fear… Knowing there was nothing I could do but wait and pray…

My daughter eventually drove all the way upstate to save me, after the weather cleared enough for her to get in the car…

I don’t know what would have happened if she hadn’t thought to come check on me…

After she made sure I was alright, she looked down at the generator, and yelled at me,

“What the heck is that doing in here?

I replied flippantly,

“Oh, I was going to use it to save the food and charge my cellphone. But I couldn’t turn the darn thing on!”

She went pale…

That’s when she started telling me about how dangerous these gas generators actually are.

She told me about all the news reports of generator deaths after Hurricane Irma. Whole families dying from gas generator fires…

Children being killed by carbon monoxide poisoning from a gas generator being used inside the house for just 5 minutes…

She said even using a gas generator in an open garage can cause this deadly poisoning…

I was amazed by how lucky I’d got off…

My daughter and I both agreed that I needed a safe and reliable emergency power supply…

The Florida weather was getting more unpredictable by the year, just like the weather all over America.

There were more and more natural disasters…

And more and more power outages…

We knew this time was a freak accident with the tree…

And, sure, I’d found out about the danger of the gas generator before it was too late…

But my daughter and I both agreed that I had to be prepared for the next outage…

That’s when my daughter told me how she keeps her family safe during outages…

She said she uses a solar generator from a company called Generark…solar generator from a company called Generark…

I could remember the name because it was a mix between ‘generator’ and ‘ark’…

Apparently, the company compared it to Noah’s Ark for it’s ability to save people from natural disasters… Which I did think was pretty clever!

But I told my daughter there was no way I was going to stick solar panels up all over my house - I had a flyer in the post once and I knew they cost from $30,000 up to $50,000 or more…

My daughter had to correct me…

This wasn’t the same as solar panels…

(And it came at a tiny fraction of the price…)

Although she did have to admit, it had the same advantages as solar…

Clean, cheap energy, without ever having to go to the store for gas…

And, of course, without any toxic fumes or chemical emissions…

There were just two parts to my daughters simple set up…

And you can use it even without the solar panels…

By simply charging it in the wall outlet in your home, or with a car outlet…

She said the pack itself has got pretty much every kind of outlet you’d need…

So you can charge everything from your cellphone to the refrigerator, to tools, to medical devices…

All at the same time…

She then told me the battery alone would be enough to get me through any few hour outages. And make sure I wasn’t ending up throwing out the contents of my refrigerator constantly…

(We looked it up and apparently your food only stays fresh for 4 hours during a power outage… Then it’s straight in the trash can… But this battery will run a refrigerator for 5-14 hours, saving potentially hundreds of dollars worth of food)

Better still, she knows I’m not a huge technology fan. So I was glad when she told me it turns on at the flip of a switch. So you don’t need any specialist knowledge to get it going like with a gas generator.

She said it’s also mega compact. So it sits nicely on a surface top and doesn’t need to be hidden away in the garage. The size also makes it easy to take it wherever electricity is needed, without having to lug a huge piece of machinery around.

She then told me, to get a constant supply of electricity over many day long outages caused by natural disasters, all I needed was a portable solar generator.

She said the generator simply plugs into the battery pack to charge it…

And you don’t need the sun to be beaming, it works even on overcast days.

And again, it’s perfect if you’re a technophobe like me, as it only takes 30 seconds to set up. All you have to do is unfold it and pull out the kickstand.

My daughter had the battery pack and 2 solar generators for her 4 person family, but she told me a battery pack and single generator would be enough for me…

I decided to put it to the test…

I decided to order the one person set for myself…

Going through the worst a power outage had to offer made me realize it was worth the investment in my safety…

Plus my daughter wouldn’t leave my house without me ordering my own pack!

It did cost a little more than a gas generator…

But my daughter assured me I was actually saving money, as I’d never have to buy gas, which soon adds up…

Plus there was a 5 year warranty, so I knew it was built to last. While gas generators can often break down after a couple of years… (Like mine had, thankfully!)

When I ordered, Generark were running a 20% off sale. Apparently they don’t do this often, so if you see they have a discount on, it’s best not to hesitate. The website offered a financing option, so I used that to split the payments.

I received the set a few days later… There was a 30 day guarantee period to make sure I was pleased with it…

Thankfully there were no natural disasters to really test it to its limit!

But I did have a party in my backyard… And I kept it out there so everybody could charge their cellphones… I even plugged in the coffee machine so people could help themselves to a hot beverage. People used it all evening, and it had plenty of charge left the next day…

I ended up using it for entertaining all through the summer. Friends even asked me to bring it round when they had gatherings.

Since I bought my Generark, we’ve had a few more outages in Florida…

And I’ve never had to throw out a refrigerator full of food…

Or worry about my phone running out of charge when I need it most…

But best of all, my daughter and I have both got piece of mind. Should the weather bring the worst, thanks to Generark, we both know I’ll be prepared.

I’d recommend Generark to anyone that’s living in an area that gets hit by hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, tropical storms or tornadoes. Buying one now could save you from real trouble the next time a natural disaster hits.

COMMENT: Generark are currently offering a 20% discount while stocks last.

Note: If you are seeing this, the offer is still available, but they could take it down at any minute.
