Hello every one saint .357 here with another strange idea. now we all know that after the z-poc finding power is going to be a bitch. with power grids most likely unmanned and non operation big ticket items will be lost. unless you have a generator which I'm sure most of us do. i know i got mine ready and waiting in the wings. even then finding fuel for it will be difficult and they make noise which with zombies crawling around is a very bad thing. now i think most of know that we'll also be on the move. no way your humping even the smallest of generators over rough terrain. still even if your taking with you what you can carry on your back its likely you'll have small things that will require power.
night vision goggles,
holographic scopes for your rifles,
and many other small devices you will need or may want with you during the zpoc.
all these things will need to have their batteries recharged and how will you do it. well I've been toying around with the idea of incorporating some small flexible solar panel's into my clothing, like on the back of my tack vest, or maybe into this. my homemade Gorget/shoulder armor.
i would use a Jungle hat/ bowling hat, more surface to place these Film solar cells.
Ps could you post where you get these cells from, i might order some myself, had a project like this myself, just with different clothing. And schematics once you have it done, i`m sure there are a few who would love to copy it.
Sidenote: the back is also a area thats always, in most cases directed at the sun for simple reason we dont like sun in our faces. So using film solar cells and fitting them along your back( in accordance to your muscle and body shape.
the back is also a spot that will unlikely be where the attack come from.
