Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is really an invisible problem. It's very easy for a lot of people to become unaware of this global problem due to its often invisible nature. You only hear about human trafficking in the news when it takes a very obvious form.

Trafficking Harms

If you’re watching T.V. and chance up on the late-night news, you might come across some sort of a sweatshop being raided by the local police. Alternatively, you may have heard of people caught in a sex trafficking ring. Make no mistake about it, though, human trafficking actually takes many different forms. It also occurs on many different levels.

Global Community

What makes it so dangerous and such a pervasive problem is that it often assumes a “legal” form at first. This involves people looking for work. It might even take that the guise of a perfectly illegal immigrant situation. There are many recruiters out there that look perfectly legit. However, given the right set of circumstances, or if the situation involves the wrong.

Raising Awareness

To a certain extent, it would be fair to say that human trafficking is a crime of opportunity. People engage in this type of crime not initially intending it, but when certain circumstances arise, their relationship turns into something that closely involves trafficking at some level or other. This is why trafficking is often disguised.

Trafficking Victims

Interestingly enough, a lot of people turn a blind eye to this because it seems like it involves “willing” participants. That’s what it appears on the surface, but when you look into the details, these people don’t have free will, or don’t have any control over their situation.

Unkindest Cut

This abuse is often not reported. The crimes are often concealed. When this takes place, other laws are broken. We’re not just talking about sexual exploitation, sexual labor or labor law exploitation, there are even environmental, as well as other regulatory violations, involved.

Setting up an anti-slavery site is not as easy as you think

Make no mistake about it, slavery, as evil as it is, is not a historical relic. It still exists. I know that sounds crazy, but you only need to look at certain parts of the world to see that this is the absolute reality.Modern slavery takes many different forms. Many of these forms hijack social norms, traditions, and culture. Not surprisingly, if you ask people from certain parts of the world if there are ‘slaves’ there, they would think you’re crazy. If you change the words, however, they would point out where the slaves are.

You have to remember that slavery exists because it is part of some sort of cultural and economic infrastructure. Knock out those elements and modern versions of slavery simply would cease to exist. They go hand in hand.

And accordingly, more and more people are setting up anti-slavery sites. This should be encouraged. This should even be subsidized by state, local and municipal governments. There are many different forms of forced servitude out there, and the more awareness there is, the better we will be able to fight this historical curse.

With that said, if you’re thinking of putting up your own website, you have to understand that you have to pick the right host. It’s not as easy as you think.

The problem with finding the right hosting company is that there are so many of them. In fact, there are so many different choices on the market that it’s really hard to make the right call.

It’s not just a question of making sure that your website appears on time every time. That’s the basic requirement. Instead, you should also be able to pick a host that would be able to handle the load of your website.

If your anti-slavery site, for some reason, becomes really popular globally, instead of just locally, this is going to be an issue. Now, if your website is just popular on a local basis, most hosting companies would be able to handle the load.

Now, if you cover a very important or a controversial issue and you get traffic from all four corners of the world, there may be a tremendous amount of traffic to your site. This is why it’s crucial to host your anti-slavery site the right way.

How do you go about doing this? Make sure your anti-slavery site is hosted right by checking out our Bluehost review.

When you check out our review, you will know the kind of features that you need to look out for. You then use these features to cross reference the different hosting options you become aware of.

By doing things this way, you increase the likelihood that you will buy the right hosting package. That’s how it works.

Modern day indentured servants can even wear the best boxing shoes

Usually, when people think of indentured servants, they usually think of people working on some sort of agricultural task. This is the most common picture of indentured servants. It has to involve some sort of heavy manual labor.

Well, what if I told you that this is no longer the case? In fact, when you look at what would seem to be modern societies, there are many different versions of indentured servitude there.

This is what throws off a lot of anti-slavery and anti-human trafficking activists. They are looking for a specific type of forced labor. As a result, their narrow definitions of forced labor gets the better of them. In fact, often times, they see all these coerced forms of labor right in front of their very eyes, and they are completely blind to it.

It’s easy to see why many folks are blind to modern slavery. Many forms of this practice hijack local traditions or cultural expressions. This is why people don’t use the word slave. They won’t even know what it means. You have to describe a particular set of practices for you to get to the truth. That’s how it works in the case of modern slavery as practiced in many parts of the world.

You have to use fairly broad definitions. You have to update these definitions to fit the set of circumstances of the particular social and economic scenario you are in. That way, when you update your definition, you can see that there are lots of coerced or forced labor out there.

This is not voluntary. These people may seem like they have free choice, but ultimately, they’re being taken advantage of.

Now, different forms of exploitation vary in how blatant they are. Take the case of certain sporting events in Southeast Asia. You would notice that a lot of Thai men are into Thai kickboxing. Unfortunately, a small but significant portion of this population is not exactly engaged in Thai boxing or Muay Thai voluntarily.

Maybe they’re paying a debt. Maybe they’re doing it out of some sort of family obligation. Maybe they are migrants from one part of Thailand or Southeast Asia to this part of the world and they need to pay off some sort of obligation. This obligation may not even involve money.

Whatever the case may be, don’t be surprised if you see modern-day indentured servants wearing the best boxing shoes. They might have the best protective gear. But none of this takes away from the fact that they are still doing something that somehow, some way, violates their free agency.

That’s right. They’re not voluntarily doing these things. This rises to the level of indentured servitude.

Many trafficking victims’ living quarters are infested by bed bugs

 

Human trafficking really is at the lowest point of human activity. It really is because not only do you have exploitation, people are also inhumanely treated to do work that is so dirty, so dangerous, and really demeaning.

Now, it’s one thing for people to want to do this type of work. For example, there are some people who want to have sex all day, every day. But let me tell you, they are vastly outnumbered by most other people.

Most people don’t want to lie on their backs having sex with random strangers that they have no control over. Most people don’t want to do that. But there are a few, percentage wise, where that is not only perfectly okay, but preferable, okay? Let’s assume that that’s the case.

But the vast majority of people would not want to do that. And that’s where trafficking comes in. Basically, you force people through some sort of arrangement to do things that they would not normally do. And to add insult to injury, you pay them very, very little money.

And this is why human trafficking really is at the bottom of the human totem pole of activities. It is evil, it is messed up, it is very destructive, and it causes all sorts of social harm.

Regardless of what kind of pathology you can think of, it’s there. Regardless of what kind of spiritual dysfunction you can point at, it’s there. It really is the lowest of the low. And to make matters worse, as if things could get any worse, you need to pay attention to their living quarters.

I’ve had the distinct displeasure of investigating a human trafficking den in Southeastern Los Angeles, and it really turned my stomach when I did the investigation. It still actually makes me want to vomit today.

I visited the hilltop concrete box called home by 200 Thai women. These women were from the distant mountainside provinces of Thailand, and none of them spoke a lick of English. They were put on a plane with fake visas, they got in the United States, they got their passports taken away, and they were put in that box for several years.

Their job was to sew clothes all day, every day. We’re talking about starting at 4:00 a.m. and calling it a night at 9:00 p.m. day after day. No breaks, no weekends. There are only two meals given every day. Crazy.

But a lot of these women basically don’t want to go back to Thailand. They’d rather go through that hell because they are hanging on to the hope that somehow, some way, their slavers, and that’s really the word for these barely human people who control the show, will let them go.

And interestingly enough, some women were let go of “their contract” after 8 years. That’s 8 years of working for less than 1/10th of minimum wage. Not the minimum wage in the United States, mind you, but in Thailand. Crazy. And on top of this, their beds were crawling with bed bugs.

Now, when I first saw these bed bugs, it made my stomach turn. I know that these bed bugs could easily have been exterminated with a quick visit to www.merkem.ca, but this went beyond a mere technical fix to me.

This is not just something that you pick up the phone, call a bed bug extermination specialist, and take care of the problem. Instead, this revealed to me the systematic injustice and oppression of the system that takes the hopes and dreams of these poor women and grinds them. That’s how barbaric, soulless and evil this was because there was no contract.

The women were not told, “Okay, you’re going to be making this rate. Do you want it or not?” No. There was none of that. It’s all basically a lie.

They said, “okay, you’re going to be making this amount,” and when they get there they get hit with all sorts of penalties and forced to live like slaves.

Vibration machine operators also get trafficked

Do yourself a big favor, if you are in any kind of industry, chances are, there would be all sorts of machines that are being used there. It doesn’t have to be heavy industrial machines. It can be just low key, basic machinery.

Well, as you probably already know, people who are skilled enough to handle these machines work in a wide range of labor situations. Sounds good so far, right? Seem like there’s nothing out of the ordinary. It seems like everything is in order. And this is precisely the kind of situation you need to guard against because these are the types of arrangements where trafficking issues come in.

I know you’re probably thinking that trafficking has something more to do with some sort of sweat shop like women sewing garments in a hot, sweaty factory somewhere. Similarly, another mental image that you may have about human trafficking involves massage parlors in the

West Coast of the United States involving Asian women. But you’d be surprised as to how varied and how diverse human trafficking can be.

Because if you look at the essence of human trafficking, it really all boils down to getting people to do work at rates they did not consciously, willfully and clearly agree to. Somebody’s not going to jump on a plane with a tourist visa from halfway around the world to work for basically less than half the amount of money they could have made at home. That’s just not going to happen.

And unfortunately, a lot of people with very good skill sets, we’re talking about medical skills, cosmetic skills, or even legal skills, are forced to work half the rate of minimum wage in their home countries. Talk about barbaric. Talk about unspeakable. But this happens all the time.

And unfortunately, all the popular media images of sex trafficking doesn’t really do justice to the other 90% of people being trafficked because it really renders them invisible. In the mind of the run of the mill, average, rank and file American, unless you’re working in some sort of sweatshop or in a massage parlor, you really have no right to complain that you’re being trafficked. So what you’re getting paid less?

Well, that’s really short sighted thinking because, believe it or not, there are all sorts of industrial labor involving a high level of skill that involve barbaric levels of exploitation. Take vibration machine operators, for example.

These are fancy machinery. You operate them with the wrong settings and you can cause a lot of trouble. Screw around with them and there might be all sorts of problems you are creating. This is not easy stuff. This is why a lot of companies, instead of hiring local US vibration machine operators would rather deal with shady subcontractors.

These are people who recruit machine operators from places like the Philippines by promising them US wages. By the time they get to the United States, usually in California or Washington State, they get their passports taken away and they get put in a work site. And this work site’s work is done from 4:00 a.m. all the way to 8:00 p.m. every single day, all day, every day. Food, if you want to call it that, is provided and charged against these poor people’s accounts.

To get out of this slave-like conditions, people have to work three, six to even ten years. It is no surprise that it’s only been the anti-trafficking advocates who have hit the court system exposing such arrangements.

Do yourself a big favor, if you are involved in a company that contracts with labor companies for vibration machine operators, talk to these individuals. If they look like they came from another country, talk to them. Pay attention to what they’re saying. You may be involved unknowingly in human exploitation. You know what to do next.

Even skilled lipo laser technicians can be trafficked

 

Now, usually, when people think of human trafficking, they often think about massage parlor women. These women are from Southeast Asia, parts of Korea and China that are routinely trafficked in the United States.

This type of trafficking actually follows a very well worn and “almost traditional” pattern. A lot of these women are offered jobs or opportunities to work in the United States. They get a visa. This is usually a tourist visa. Once they enter the US physically, they are picked up and put in a warehouse.

At that point, their passports are taken away from them. In many cases, they are forced to live in cramped quarters, and the only job that they’re doing is essentially to have sex with a long line of strangers. I know it sounds barbaric. It definitely sounds very unpleasant, and it is.

And as evil as this practice is, unfortunately, it only accounts for the tip of the iceberg. This is the kind of the human trafficking that you hear about the most. But believe it or not, a larger chunk of the global labor trafficking problem has a different face. They involve skilled labor.

Believe it or not, even doctors and lawyers can be trafficked. How? Well, look at their oppressive work arrangements. Somebody is going to get paid cents on the dollar for their top notch medical skills and experience if they sign on the dotted line. And this happens all the time.

I raise this issue because even skilled lipo laser technicians can be trafficked. That’s right. These people are so highly skilled that they can take your flab and turn you into a person who looks like an athlete. Seriously.

I’ve seen people with really flabby midsections. They look so bad that it seems like they have several liters of cottage cheese around their midsection, the back of their thighs, and the top of their butt. In the hands of a high quality, high skilled and very experienced lipo laser technician, they start looking like Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt. Take your pick. Crazy, right?

Well, a lot of this, of course, has to do with the equipment that they use. Many skilled lipo laser technicians, regardless of whether they are being trafficked or not, get their equipment from http://knockyourhealth.com/lipolaser.

Lipo laser technology truly is amazing. It is mind blowing. But make no mistake about it, if you are getting this type of work done, you might want to be sensitive regarding the work status of the person doing this work.

They may be excited about their work, they might love the people that they are helping, but please understand that there is a sadness in their voice. There is a sense of disappointment in their eyes. Why? They’re being trafficked.

They’re not going to say it to your face. They’re not going to step up and volunteer this information. Do yourself a big favor and become part of the solution. Ask a lot of questions regarding how much they’re getting paid or their work arrangement.

It may well turn out that this person came from a really reputable hospital in India or the Philippines and is now getting paid 1/10th of minimum wage in the United States. This is, by no stretch of the imagination, part of the American dream.

Do yourself a big favor, expose these arrangements and become part of the solution. As long as a person did not volunteer to be in that situation, did not willingly and knowingly accept a certain rate of pay, then they’re fair game for anti-trafficking advocacy and law enforcement.

If you are reading this, you are a human rights activist. You are in the forefront of helping women from all over the world avoid getting trafficked. We congratulate you because we share your advocacy.

Human trafficking, at this day and age, has no right to exist. Seriously. We look at it, really, as a modern day version of slavery.

As horrible, dehumanizing and barbaric slavery was, it’s still happening today. Sure, cosmetically, things may look cleaner and even seem to make sense, but deep down inside, the same issues are still involved. People are still not free, people are still feeling that they are somehow, some way, being pushed by circumstances to do things that they really would rather not do.

You have to understand that the modern philosophy and the modern principle that we all advocate for is to help people from all over the world, regardless of what they look like, regardless of where they come from, and regardless of the language they speak, to live life to the fullest. That’s what freedom is about. That’s what being alive and being human is all about. And unfortunately, all this goes up in smoke, or goes down the toilet, depending on your perspective, when it comes to human trafficking.

Now, it’s easy to be outraged by this, and we encourage you to be upset. Seriously. Get mad. Get out there. Speak up. Because this does not have to happen. And if you are so pumped up that you would like to create special blog posts for your Facebook posts, we congratulate you, we pat you on the back, and we would love to hang a medal on your neck.

Well, unfortunately, simply jumping in with both feet and writing off the top of your head a blog post that condemns any and all forms of anti-trafficking is just the first step. You have to understand that anybody can share their opinion on the internet. It’s so easy to do that nowadays. We all have the technology and the infrastructure to make that happen.

There are all sorts of publishing platforms you can take advantage of. You can use all these platforms to get heard. That’s not the issue. The issue, of course, involves saying the right thing at the right time, so the right people can hear what you’re saying and the right things happen.

This is not easy. It takes a lot of planning. You have to be systematic and methodical about it. And one of the key components of producing materials that people would actually sit up and pay attention to involves graphics.

If you’re going to be cranking out blog posts condemning all forms of trafficking, make them look good. Seriously. Because people on Facebook are not going to click on the link if there is no picture.

I know that sounds trivial, it definitely sounds superficial, but hey, let’s face it, in the modern world, people do judge a book by its cover. So come prepared.

Thankfully, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on compelling blog post graphics regarding anti-human trafficking articles. Seriously. You only need to go to https://avopix.com/ to get free high quality blog photos.

Go to that website, knock yourself out, pop a lot of pictures in your article, and you’d be surprised as to how viral it can get.

Globalgrapher.com can help fight trafficking

 

Global Grapher located at https://www.globalgrapher.com is the website of Global Photographer. This is an online platform where photographers offering professional services can service a specific area. If, for example, you live in San Francisco, you only need to go to globalphotographer.com to get in touch with people looking for wedding, bar mitzvah, anniversary, or any other type of event photography.

People can make good money on this platform. After all, excellent photography is not exactly the kind of skill you pick up randomly.

Now, with that said, there is also a tremendous social justice component to being a global photographer because you can help fight trafficking. Chances are, if you’re not taking snapshots of people getting married or taking snapshots of couples before they get married, you’re taking a lot of pictures. You’re doing this to hone your skills. You’re doing this to kill boredom. You’re also doing this to truly express the creative side of your personality.

All that is well and good, but if you really want to make the world a better place, you might want to devote some of your time taking snapshots and going out there and taking photos to help fight global trafficking.

Make no mistake about it, in the United States alone, there are hundreds of thousands of women being trafficked. We’re not talking about the classic sex slavery trafficking where people can obviously see that these women are being held against their will and images flash in your mind of Oliver Twist in the 1800s.

While those still happen in very extreme and remote situations, they are rather the exceptions instead of the rule. By and large, modern trafficking simply involves people working voluntarily, but being forced to forego legal rights. Overtime is one common example of this.

There are lots of women, usually from developing countries who immigrate and overstay their visa. Accordingly, they become legally vulnerable. People who are handling them know that they can easily be turned in to immigration authorities and back they go.

In this context, these women are very vulnerable and would pretty much do anything just to stay in the United States because a lot of them have families to support back home. Perfectly understandable. And the problem is, the first thing to go are their labor protections.

You’d be surprised as to how little many women, from Central America or Southeast Asia, are being paid to sew clothing for a hundred hours a week. We’re talking about below minimum wage.

It would be great if they were making minimum wage because at least they have some sort of legal protection, but they are not. This is way below minimum wage. And oftentimes, in the worst working conditions. We’re talking about oven-like heat. Crazy.

So when you’re out there and taking pictures, you probably will come across certain situations that can hint of human trafficking. The reality is that anti-trafficking organizations need some form of documentation for them to initiate investigations. Your photographs can go a long way.

So do yourself a big favor and become part of the fight to help bring protection to these women. Be part of the solution and share your photos. Take a lot of photos, take them everywhere, take them all the time, and share them. You’d be surprised as to how much you can help to create a better world.

Trafficked women don’t have access to post natal massage

 

There’s a tremendous amount of sex trafficking happening all over the world. And unfortunately, a lot of westerners are completely ignorant of this. In fact, it’s happening in their very backyard.

There are lots of Asian massage parlors in many parts of America. A lot of people may think that this is all therapeutic and innocent and fun, but it isn’t. A lot of the women who work at those massage parlors are often forced or coerced into asking clients to pay for extra services, which of course involves sex acts. Don’t get me wrong. Some women who work in such places actually like working there. They have no issues working there and some are quite vocal about it. It is the involuntary workers I am focusing on.

Now, you may be thinking that police are taking care of these and there is a very developed vice enforcement infrastructure in many parts of the United States. That is absolutely true. But make no mistake about it, for every raid or groups of arrests that you hear about in the news, there are thousands of other cases where things happen under the radar.

A lot of these women basically have their passports taken away once they enter the United States and are forced to basically have sex with all these strangers until they pay off their debt. They can then work at a low wage job as an illegal or undocumented alien. It really is quite a sad situation.

And a lot of these women don’t have access to post natal massage and other pregnancy-related services. A lot of them do get pregnant. While there is a shocking trend towards forced abortions among these illegal or gray market operations, many women do give birth.

Now, a lot of them are actually married to other people living in that underground economy, but regardless, a lot of their health outcomes are negatively affected by the trafficking environment.

Post natal massage goes a long way in improving the comfort and health of a new mother. It also makes sure that her body isn’t cosmetically destroyed by pregnancy.

A lot of women actually take years to recover their pre-pregnancy shape, assuming they are able to do that in the first place. Post natal massage, when timed properly and done by an expert, can go a long way in helping women get their bodies back.

Do yourself a big favor and advocate for post natal massage. This is not a small thing. There are many local governments and regional initiatives to help trafficked women.

But if you work for an anti-trafficking NGO, look at the big picture. This is not just a question of getting people justice, but it is also a question of making sure that their health needs are identified and taken care of.

There are a lot of resources out there that exist. The problem is, we need to be more vigilant in making sure the resources reach the right people. People are in need of this. They need to know.

You need the best pop up canopy when doing anti-trafficking field work

Make no mistake about it, if you are looking to make a dent in the global scourge of human trafficking, sex slavery and child trafficking, you need to go out in the field.

You have to understand that in most major cities, and it doesn’t really matter how underdeveloped the country is, there is a working or semi-working judicial system. Sure, it may take ages for a court to finally decide what to do with a case, but at least there is some sort of mechanism where people can report crimes. The police can come in and investigate, pick up the responsible parties, throw them in jail, and sooner or later, the gears of justice turn enough for a conviction to be handed down.

It doesn’t really matter how bad the situation is in terms of economy or politics or even society, if you are dealing with any kind of cosmopolitan area, sooner or later, justice will happen. This is not the case when you’re out in the field.

Out in the field, it’s basically every man for himself. And in many cases, it’s really all about local customs, traditions and culture. Now these concepts may sound awesome in theory, but unfortunately, people being people, sometimes they make the problem worse.

Believe it or not, there are certain parts in the world where slavery is still in existence, in a large part because people expect it to be in existence. A lot of people who are slaves now want to be free so that they can, guess what? Enslave other people. I know it sounds crazy, I know it sounds frustrating, but that is the cold, hard truth.

And for any anti-trafficking person in an NGO organization, to be truly effective, they need to go out there. They need to get past and go beyond the local legal and social infrastructure of the country they’re working in so they can go to where the inequality and the problem lies.

Now, this sounds awesome, right? Well, you have to come prepared. A lot of these places are hot. A lot of these places have tropical rain showers. It can get really messy really quickly. Also, some places are so humid that there’s a tremendous amount of mosquitos. I’m talking about swarms of mosquitos that can basically eat you alive.

To make things easier on yourself, you need to invest in many kinds of gear. One of these, of course, involves finding the very best pop up canopy.

When you put up a canopy, you are protected from the rain and the unbearable heat. The sun is not beating down on you and you will be able to do some outreach. People can line up, you can dispense all sorts of free medication, take notes on people’s personal stories regarding forced slavery, sexual abuse, sex payments, and the like. This way, you can do your job out there in the field.

And it may seem like it’s so basic to get the best pop up canopy, but unfortunately, these are the kinds of details that tend to fall between the cracks. A lot of NGOs, even the most experienced ones tend to look at these pieces of equipment as an afterthought. They don’t really keep them too of mind. Not surprisingly, they are unable to give the kind of service that people deserve.

Do yourself a big favor and make sure that your organization truly steps up by ensuring that you bring the right gear. Make no mistake about it, the best pop up canopy as well as anti-mosquito lotions and sprays and sunblocks can go a long way in helping your organization, regardless of how big it may be, to fully fulfill your mandate.

Anti-trafficking NGOs need the best solar panels

 

I wish I could tell you that anti-trafficking NGOs did all their work in major cosmopolitan cities. That, after all, would be the most comfortable and safest way to do this kind of work. Unfortunately, a lot of modern day slavery takes place in places that are not easy to reach.

These are places that are often hard to find. And for good reason. Because if you are dealing with any kind of developed cosmopolitan area, chances are, there is going to be a well-developed and structured police or law enforcement mechanism there. The infrastructure would be there and, chances are, sooner or later, whatever involuntary servitude or modern day slavery or sex trafficking that is happening will be taken care of. It’s only a matter of time.

Now, we all wish that this kind of evil behavior would be taken care of as soon as possible. The good news is, whenever you’re dealing with any kind of cosmopolitan area, whether they’re located down the street from you or at the other side of the planet, chances are, the problem will be taken care of sooner rather than later.

Now, with that said, it’s a totally different ballgame when you are dealing with the provinces, the hinterlands or the wilderness, in many cases. What do you do there? This is why a lot of NGOs go out to the bush and go out to the provinces and the farmlands to seek out any injustice.

Now, you probably would be thinking that this some sort of adventure. Well, put away your Indiana Jones Temple of Doom scenarios because this is anything but. Seriously. This is hard, backbreaking labor.

In many cases, you’re out there in the bush. You’re doing the best you can for humanity, and people really could not care less. In fact, a lot of people would oppose you because there’s a lot of money to be made in human trafficking, resource exploitation, breaking environmental laws, and so on and so forth.

Regardless, if you work for an NGO, you need to be well equipped. Find the best solar panels for your local offices and you can go a long way in providing much needed services to the people who need you the most. This is especially true if you are driving around in the provinces.

The best solar panels are also mobile. So regardless of how you provide your services, and regardless of how you help people, make sure you are properly equipped.

Your NGO really isn’t doing much of anything if you guys run out of juice for your computers, mobile devices, tablets, and everything else that needs electricity. You’re not helping anybody if you find yourself in that situation. Make sure you are properly prepared by ensuring that you have enough supply of electricity so you can do your job right.

The best solar panels are not only light and very mobile, but they charge really well. Unfortunately, we really cannot turn on or turn up the power setting of the sun. We basically have to deal with cloud structures and low light scenarios.
