Feedback and Contributions
I flogged the MX Master 3! I’m really much, much happier with the Anywhere 2S (as per your last show Bargain Basement). It’s a much, much better size for me - and I still get the super-speed scroll function. And back/right clicks on the wheel (that you don’t get with the Master 3). So there! 😛
Feedback on power stations from the last Tech Addicts show. I'm afraid you were a couple of orders of magnitude out. As a rule, a medium power station like my Jackery 500 (so 500Wh, around 100,000mAh) can't really help much with a home's electricity for any time whatsoever. It'll run some tech (router, laptops) for an hour or two (plus tablets and phones).
That's your lot. A massive £3000 power station like the one on your show or the new Jackery 2000 can output 2kW, it's true, but only for an hour(!) - so will actually allow limited use of kettle, one fan heater, and so on, OR perhaps a house's lights, fridges and freezers for a day. Even the giant Tesla powerwalls can only handle a typical house's electrical needs for a day or so. In short, there's no easy way to have a backup to 'run your house for days on end' - if there was then we'd all be doing it! What I'm doing with the Jackery is playing (and soothing my eco-conscience). But it's two orders of magnitude from being useful for a household in a multi-day power outage, I'm afraid.
