A camp stove takes care of those needs, but portability and fuel are both issues. It can burn virtually any biomass, including whatever twigs and sticks you can scrounge up, and it does so extremely efficiently and without smoke. You can cook on the BioLite CampStove 2, boil water or just keep your hands warm. BioLite says it will boil a liter of water in just less than five minutes.
Also, when the fire burns, it charges an integrated battery. This battery powers a fan that makes burning more efficient and can be used to top up your mobile devices. Having light is a big deal in an emergency situation — not just for safety and signaling others, but even for keeping up spirits. A flashlight is already covered off with the Midland Emergency Crank Radio.

But having a lantern to light up a room, shelter or campsite is also important. This tiny 8oz lantern can stand on folding legs, be hung with its hidden hook or be attached to metal surfaces with its magnetic base. It has multiple light settings, including the ability to light up a small room, and a low-light mode that lasts up to hours on a charge.
It can even be used to top up mobile device batteries in a pinch. It may seem silly to stash a smartphone case in your survival kit, but think about it: Your smartphone likely will become a lifeline in a disaster. Most people like to use a slim and stylish case. But in a disaster scenario — with challenges such as water and simply being banged around — that slim case offers little protection.
So, pack a rugged case. Maps would be nice.
So would how-to guides. On paper, these are heavy and would take up a lot of room in your survival kit. Its 4GB of storage can be loaded up with hundreds of first aid guides, maps, survival books, cookbooks, plant identification books and other valuable reference material. It has lighting so you can read everything at night, while the E Ink display has no glare issues even in direct sunlight.
The battery lasts for weeks , and it weighs under half a pound. The PaperWhite will allow you to load up with some novels. Waiting for rescue with no power, no TV and no internet can get boring. Slip in an optional portable solar panel and you can recharge the Sherpa without having access to electricity. View as One Page.
