September 2008- Current bag- custom Timbuk2 laptop messenger
(large, charcoal and black with a black Xpac center stripe)
This is my "worst case scenario" day pack for a long day at school. The bag can handle it, but my back usually can’t. I have been know to carry all of this from time to time, but I normally leave the f4 or the computer at home.

Geek out: Power protection
Image by lungstruck
Tuesday night geek out part 2: power protection. Not something many people consider when they buy a computer, but it’s definitely important for reliable operation. This is under my main desk where most of my computer equipment resides. From left-to-right:
APC Back-UPS ES 550 (Model BE550G). Pretty basic UPS with stepped-wave output and no real bells and whistles. Provides emergency power to my Synology NAS, which it can run for at least 30 minutes. Also provides surge protection to various other devices on my desk such as the printer, Wi-Fi router, etc. It has a USB connection to the NAS to provide for safe shutdown.
APC Line-R 1200 (Model LE1200). Automatic voltage regulator (AVR) that feeds the aforementioned Back-UPS ES 550 which doesn’t have a built-in AVR. I didn’t used to bother with AVRs but for awhile power quality at my house was very poor and brownouts killed a UPS and an LCD monitor, so I installed a couple on some of my more sensitive (and expensive) equipment. It’s not something I think everyone needs (depending on the condition of the power grid where you live) but I’ve found it to help in a few situations. One being the problems I had at home, and the other is at work. I have a portable 480v piece of industrial equipment that provides onboard 120v power to a computer that controls it, and we kept having blue screens and other failures with the computer. I figured the power quality wasn’t very good. Putting in an AVR solved the issues.
APC Smart-UPS 1500 (Model SUA1500). Fairly popular UPS. I actually got this one for free, which was a great deal. My company had several they suddenly retired so I made sure to grab one. It still has a good battery. This is a much nicer UPS which provides a sine-wave output and has built-in AVR. It runs my iMac i7 2.8Ghz 27" and a USB hub connected to the computer which it can do for over 30 minutes. It also has a USB connection to provide safe shutdown on the Mac.
Beyond this equipment, I also have a couple APC Line-R 600 AVRs for other parts of my home (lower wattage version of the Line-R 1200), an additional Smart-UPS 1500 (needs new battery), an APC Back-UPS ES 350 that isn’t in use (was using it with my DVR), and of course surge suppressors on anything remotely important. As I can afford to I’m slowly replacing some of my cheap surge suppressors with Tripp-Lite ISOBAR suppressors which I’ve dealt with at work and are the king of surge suppressors.
If you spend serious money on electronics, it’s worth spending serious money on protecting them. You never know when you’ll need it!
How to Choose Emergency Canon battery Chargers
Cameras are a must in modern life. Having a discharged phone can be inconvenient, or even downright dangerous if an emergency arises. Chargers or boosters mean never running out of power.
LI-ION Battery-Powered Chargers
12 Volt Car Lighter Canon Camera chargers
Cars have electrical power to spare. 12 volt adapters that plug into the car’s cigarette lighter socket, make a lot of sense for drivers. They can make it a habit to plug their phone in whenever they are in the car, and having a fully charged battery when they reach their destination.
These are the most convenient and portable. Unfortunately, they can be underpowered. They are best for occasional emergency use, for a few minutes of urgent talk-time, not to fully recharge the phone on a daily basis.
Some chargers run on one or two LI-ION batteries. Two-LI-ION chargers are available from major battery brands
Needs to be recharged. Not possible to continuously replenish power by buying new disposable batteries.
Not suitable for standby emergency use, packed in a bag for a few years. Batteries will self-discharge after a few months.
The main concern is having a cable that is long enough for the phone to be placed in a convenient location.
The Best Canon Camera chargers
USB Canon Camera chargers
Like car chargers, these are just adapters with no power supply. They need to be plugged into a computer’s USB port for power. Some notebook computers will charge even in standby or sleep mode.
Hand crank chargers for Camera are usually emergency LED hand crank flashlights or radios, with a Canon Camera chargers port.
Many chargers are “universal”, being able to charge phones from different manufacturers. The main problem with chargers is getting the right connection tip for the phone. This should be tested in the shop before purchase.
Canon battery chargers are light and cheap with many costing only a few dollars. For something as useful and potentially life-saving as a Canon battery, it makes sense to keep a few different chargers handy:
A 12 volt charger in the car.
A USB charger next to the office PC.
An LI-ION charger in the purse, briefcase or backpack.
A solar or hand-crank charger in the emergency survival bag.
Getting into the habit of charging the Camera a few times a day, whenever there is an opportunity, will help to ward off the flat battery blues. Keeping the phone in the purse/briefcase/backpack when charging, makes it almost impossible to accidentally leave the phone behind.

Sure about that?

This MacBook is so screwed up though.
1) The power management system is completely broken. It think there’s no battery in the computer, so when you take it off of wall power it shuts off instantly
2) One of the hinges holding the screen on sheered off when I kicked it on the floor by accident, so the screen doesn’t stay put. This is the second laptop I’ve done that to
3) There’s some cooling issue, so it will always run really hot.
4) Like all first gen MacBooks, it has a cracked topcase where the lid hit the plastic
It’s like an old Volvo. It still works, mainly, but there’s loads of stuff broken on it.

My olde, busted-up, nicked-from-three-jobs-ago laptop. Now barely-functional (the powercord doesn’t quite stay in, the battery lasts about 4 seconds, and the lid hinges won’t keep the screen open), but I wanted to document its coverage before I bin it.

Toshiba Battery Life Tips
Generally speaking, the present notebooks drop its autonomy primarily by reason of a couple of reasons: Firstly the utilization, secondly the normal aging of the chemical materials. For that reason, regardless of what the tips that you will take your battery pack will wear as time passes. In general the life of a rechargeable laptop battery using is generally up to 2-3 years.
External devices such as keyboards, mouse, external CD drives and so on, are some of the greatest consumers of power that you will ever encounter. For this reason, if you have your Toshiba Satellite L640 and you are afraid that they can easily consume a lot of power, it is advisable that you remove them or unplug them so that you can reduce the amount of power that is being consumed and then make sure that you save on the energy being used.
The other thing that you will need to do when you want to save on the amount of energy being consumed by the Toshiba Satellite L640 is to make sure that you only run the basic programs.
This means that you will be required to switch off things such as music, screensavers and so on. You will also need to close down any programs that may not really be that necessary. As most people will agree with me, taking care of the laptop battery is one of the greatest tasks that can be associated with the Toshiba Satellite L640. However, if at all you put effort into it, you can be pretty sure that you will definitely not be disappointed.
The third thing that you need to do is to realize that if you want the battery of your Toshiba Satellite L640 to last long, you must be willing and able to keep the laptop from overheating.
One of the biggest mistake that people do is to put the laptops on their laps – or something else that is soft such as a pillow. The consequence here is that the computer will get to overheat and therefore cause the battery to run down very quickly.
Moreover, by no means use or keep the battery in severe conditions, including leave your laptop computer in your car when it is either freezing out or in a hot summer time.best temp to keep the battery is about 15°C.In contrast, to cool too much your battery (such as for example by arranging it in your refrigerator) risk to damage it definitively. If the battery will not be in use for a long time, it is suggested to be detached from the machine and placed in a cool, dry, clean place.
