Although I'm unlikely to ever go on a transcontinental expedition, I follow a couple of offroading blogs because they're well-written and interesting. Last year, one of them recommended the Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start XP-1. It sounded interesting enough for me to put it on my "do want" list and [livejournal.com profile] elalyr bought me one for Christmas last year.

Holy crap, folks. This thing underpromises and overdelivers like nothing I've seen before. I recently started the VR-4 for the first time since February. The car's battery, as you might expect, was deader than disco. Usually, jumping that vehicle requires me to hook up the cables to the Outback and wait a good 15 to 20 minutes to build enough charge to crank.

With the XP-1? 30 seconds from hooking up the leads to starting the VR-4 on the first try - and the battery pack still was showing 4/5 bars of charge afterward. And that was after charging the XP-1 in December and leaving it in the Outback's cargo bay (parked outside, I remind you) with no top-off charging for eight months.

If you ever go anywhere that a jump-start or emergency power (it also comes with a metric assload of adapters for personal electronics) might remotely be necessary, make one of these things part of your car kit. Order today. I'm not kidding.

Finally back on a regular running schedule. For the last four weeks, I've gotten three runs a week logged. Not great. I've lost a lot of cardio. Did 3 miles today but 0.25 of that was a walk, so it doesn't really count as a 5k. But it's more than I've accomplished since December.

Also accomplished today: )

Whew. And now it's flake o'clock.
