If you like making simple low-tech gadgets, this project is pure genius and looks like fun to put together! A few basic tools and some low cost equipment will enable you to use a USB socket to power your own desktop air conditioner – USB outputs have a built-in power supply of 5 volts, which can be used to connect a wide variety of small devices – the possibilities are endless!
If you’re suffering from the heat, using a small efficient air conditioning unit like this one will keep you comfortable without having to cool the whole house! Here at off-grid, we’re always looking for smart new ways to save the planet by minimizing our use of resources – home air conditioning is costly to run so by using a small device some of the time you’ll save on electricity bills in the process.
A home air conditioning unit uses a lot of power and in a recent survey it was shown that 87% of homes (nearly 100 million!) in the US have one – this amounts to a huge consumption of energy! If we can work to reduce this power usage, it will have a beneficial effect for our pockets and the environment. Your air conditioner can be made more efficient by regular cleaning and maintenance – an old system is likely to be inefficient and costly to run.
The size, design and materials used in a building are the largest factors in its energy use – thicker walls, double glazing and better insulation all make a big difference by keeping a property cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This is often overlooked when we choose where to live – the cost of running an inefficient house can be crippling to anyone living on a tight budget.
The featured project is a simple technology called a heat exchanger. Heating or air-conditioning costs can be greatly reduced by pre-heating, or cooling, incoming air using an underground water tank that remains at a constant temperature – this geothermal energy is tapped with a “ground source heat pump”, which is much more efficient than an air source pump (such as an air-conditioning unit). Finland is a leader in developing these systems.
Geothermal systems are currently quite expensive so would be seen a long term investment, but once installed the savings are considerable – it’s well worth looking at if you’re building your own home. It may also be possible in some areas to obtain a grant or tax credit for installing renewable energy.
This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
What REALLY Happens When You Bury a Shipping Container? (Hint: It's A Bit Crazy...)
Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?
Watch the video to see what happens:
I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
