Review: LimeFuel – Limeade Blast 18000mAh Charger
I was asked, “what piece of gear do you think you’d be pissed about if you went out and left it behind?” I had a hard time coming up with a single item, as I have a lot of redundancy in my EDC. However, one thing I really don’t like realising I have left behind, or lent out, is my external power source.
