Things to do when the power goes out?

Forums - General Discussion - Things to do when the power goes out?

The power has been going on and off all day because it's storming and it's getting really annoying. I've been playing my PSP a lot but I'm starting to get bored of it now and don't really want to play it anymore. So do any of you guys got any suggestions of things to do when the power goes out?

It's snow not rain.

And I done enough of that this year, I almost lost the bottom of my feet.

take a deep cycle 12V battery and a DC to AC converter. Take the car plug apart, wire it to the battery. Then hook up a small TV, and a GC/Wii. Once you've got it all hooked up, start up the TV, then the GC/Wii.

You can probably play for a good 4-5 hours.

*note, I did this when we lost power in the middle of the winter around 8 years ago and the house probably dropped to ~40 but I had my blanked and was hiding in the basement which was the warmest place left

EDIT: I wanted to note, I listed GC/Wii because they both take under 17W, and if you turn off WiFi you'll use even less power. I only had a 175W converter, so there is no way it could power a X360/PS3.

ok, so you don't have the equipment listed above? get out a good board/card game, and have a good family night. My favorite games are Ticket to Ride, Power Grid, and Bang!. Personally I'm looking into buying either Killer Bunnies, or Moto Grand Prix next.




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

Oh, then you should play in the ooooo I see. Light a candle and read? I have done that before hurts your eyes after a bit though.



Sit there and be bored and wish you had power.



I play games on my laptop (usually get ~5-6 hours between my batteries)
