    regarding bunt up chargers if you will unplug them and take the cover off their is usually about a $.32 cent fuse that is popped. Replace that bad boy and plug it into a better sine wave. As far as sine waves go I run my TV and the computer I am typing on now off of a Chicago Electric 400 watt inverter and I never get any of the static or anything that these cheap little inverters are known for when used to power sophisticated electronics. Maybe I will try to charge my Craftsmen off of it this afternoon, I have a feeling the sine is a little less square than one would expect for the price.

    I think what you ladies are doing is awesome. Going off grid is admirable in and of itself, but doing it alone is admirable and brave. My wife and I have an acre of land and we will be pulling an RV onto it soon to start building our little off grid place, but the solitude is what will be the most jarring I believe. We’ll see. Anyway, I just wanted to say good job, from what I have read you (desert deb) seem like you are rocking it out in all the right ways. P.S. if you do get battery power tools I would take Sylvia’s advice and get Ryobi. As a carpenter for many years I can say they are some of the cheapest and will last forever. Make sure you don’t get Craftsman, as anything less that a pure sine inverter will fry a fuse inside.
