    Apologies if this is a dumb question, but I've been wondering!

    I live up in the foothills where there are a lot of trees, and during the winter we frequently have power outages. While I don't plan on hatching eggs all winter (and I don't hatch a ton to begin with), I am curious... Is there any way for me to get a small generator or other back-up power source cheaply in order to keep my incubator going for a day or two in case of a long power outage? I'm just curious what options there are out there if any--it's really not urgent, mostly just out of curiosity. Any thoughts, ideas, product links? It's fine to post things that aren't super cheap, either, it's just nice to know what's out there. [​IMG]

    Quote:Awesome, very nice! Thank you so much, that is quite cheap and doesn't sound too difficult to do. I think I may get one of those battery power adapters before spring. [​IMG]
