A Petrol-Powered Laptop?

Posted 30/12/2013

I've been a little quiet in my blog updates recently, partly due to the fact that our laptop battery is ruined and so needs to be permanently plugged into 240v power. Considering that, until we can invest in a quality set of batteries and inverter combo (and solar power), we must run the generator to get 240v power which means that we currently own a very eco-unfriendly petrol powered laptop!

We've been shopping around for a new laptop but with the amount of high-price items we also need to buy at the moment (a new fridge, oven, batteries & inverter, lpg gas tank(s), and a wood-burning stove would be nice too...) it seems we'll have to make do with just buying a new battery! 

So thanks for bearing with us! We'll be back soon! :)
