✏Every morning on the river my watch alarm beeps at 6:05 and I wish so bad I could keep sleeping because I am NOT a morning person. But as I lay there, I reach behind me and grab my beanie to hide the disaster that is my sleeping bag hair and throw it on, climb out of my cozy cozy bag into the chilly morning air and walk 15 feet to our camp's kitchen to start the process of making coffee and breakfast for our guests. Waking up is hard, but cooking yummy food in the quiet river mornings is one of my favorite things. The river is the best place. And getting to wear a swimsuit all day everyday is a perk I can handle. #naturefirst
Had this I made a few months ago back into the shop tonight for a polish up. Remember to pay a lot of attention to the maintenance of a high carbon steel knife. They’re not stainless like most off the shelf knives are always clean, dry and lightly oil the blade!
We’re a generation that loves the outdoors but is addicted to electronics… So, what do you do when you need electric power outdoors? You resort to solar panels… and then suddenly it’s sunset. Solar panels only work for half the day when the sun is out, making them useful only 50% of the time. Blue Freedom opts for something that’s much more consistent. Hydro power.
Designed to be the most portable hydroelectric power plant made by man, the Blue Freedom comes with a turbine and a battery that fit into each other. The turbine can be detached and placed in any river, rivulet, or stream. The rushing water turns the turbine, converting motion into electrical energy which gets stored in the donut-shaped battery unit. The battery’s donut shape solves a double purpose. Not only does it make it easy to store the turbine when not in use, the donut even helps secure the battery unit to a branch or a rock by looping it around.
With the hydroelectric power supply, you’re consistently provided with power that you can use to charge all your devices. The Blue Freedom comes armed with a speed charging as well as a regular charging USB port. The battery on the inside is a 5000mAh lithium polymer battery and can even be charged via microUSB instead of via hydroelectric power.
In its entirety, the Blue Freedom sits at just 20cm wide and weighs just 0.8lbs, making it the tiniest and lightest Hydropower Plant yet. With its ability to provide a consistent amount of power regardless of the weather, you’re compelled to ask yourself… why go half the distance with a solar panel when you can go all the way with hydro power! (Hail Hydra!?)
