Load Shedding Favourites
Load shedding is back in South Africa and nobody’s happy about it! It’s no secret that a large number of the population has no access to generators, solar installations, or other expensive alternatives, which leads to a blow in how citizens get by day by day with minimum electricity supply.
Our modern lifestyle consists of a tech-driven world and it’s no surprise why it can be disruptive and less productive to have a few hours without electricity. Of course, some people also make the most of the electrical shortage downtime by minimizing the blow of load shedding with essentials that they have collected to prepare for these times
To help you get through the powerless days and dark nights, get your hands on these must-have items that will keep your home and office spaces functional and lit during a power outage.
1)USB Power Bank
To make sure that you stay connected, keep your phone and/or laptop charged with a power bank to avoid running out of battery. No electricity coupled with no means of communication is not a great combination to survive load shedding.
One of the biggest inconveniences of load shedding during the winter is being cold! Gas heaters have a number of benefits such as being a reliable source of heat and cost-efficient. Gas heat is the go-to option especially for heating large spaces. With gas heating, you won’t be at the mercy of load shedding, and your heater will continue to effectively and efficiently heat your space.
3)Toolbox & Flashlight
Get a toolbox that you can keep in one place that is easy to reach and keep all your load-shedding essentials in and always be prepared for the outage no matter what time of the day it is. There is nothing worse than panicking during a power outage, running to the shops to buy products that will keep you calm as you wait for the electricity to be put back on.
Candles, portable LED lights, gas lamps, and torches will ensure that you don’t get caught in the dark. Use your torch led as a form of light in and around the house.
