Brian Lam at Wirecutter has a timely post up about gadgets and tools one might find useful in an emergency like Hurricane Sandy. Device chargers, generators, two-way radios, but also "hey why didn't I think of that before the hurricane" non-electronics stuff like Handi-Wipes, socks, umbrellas, and good deals on batteries.

  1. A water bottle is a good idea. Not sure that it has to cost $35 though. My number one item is a torch (flashlight for Americans). I would have one for everybody else in the family. Every other tool is useless without lighting.
