“A Kindle seems like a stupid thing to put in a bug out bag.”
I was thinking that, too. Can a Kindle access digital maps without power for sending/receiving wifi?
I can store maps, tidel charts, first aide instruction you can store any information you want after all a Kindle or such is basical a small data storage device, with it’s communications applications being secondary. As far as power there are any number of light weight back-up power systems available, but I would hope that if a person was aware enough to have a BOB they would be aware enough to conserve power and limit it’s use to the esentials. I mean if you are bugging out it ain’t no time to sit down and watch ‘The Hobbit’.

I have a Kindle and it talks by Wifi to Amazon to download books. You could download a book of maps but can’t use it to roam around the internet.
I have a solar panel to charge it and other devices but you can’t take a fairly large solar panel with you if you have to leave. In that emergency of leaving New York, taking a Kindle is...stupid.
