Need vs want.  I wanted 1, but don't really need 1.

if the power is out statewide, then so is the internet and cell towers.  So the only electronics I could use is a TV to play DVD's.  But, I have no DVD's.  For news coverage, we have a hand crankable radio.  Not sure if the cable company relies on power as well.

My food in the fridge isn't that much, so there is no need to power it.  I have other types of SHTF foods.

WHen I had T-moble and there was a blackout statewide, I had no internet (didn't use wifi).  Unsure about other carriers.  The blackout that I did XP recently with Verizon, wasn't a statewide blackout, but the rolling ones and I had internet.  But the wifi was down, due to the router not having power.  So I just used my verizon mobile data.

I would use it for my phone.   Even with no signal it's useful.  Can charge lights. Radios etc

I've seen the Jackery brand at Battery Bills. IDK what other brands they have.

I did a diy solar generator. Ordered lifepo4 cells from batteryhookup.com. built a 100ah lifepo4 for camping and stuff.
