VOTE - Portable journalism equipment

I have built and used a portable Solar power station for powering laptop/camera's for actavist and CJ work and need some replacement parts to get it working again.  This set-up is perfect for covering day long events and protest camps etc. Example project's am thinking about http://hamishcampbell.com/home/-/blogs/my-videos-a-winter-project and am working on this one http://visionon.tv/wiki/-/wiki/Main/walking+template and can demo it here by runing a short workshop barncamp

To make this work I need a replacement 12v charge controller and replacement small mobility scouter 12v lead acid battery for a total of less than £50

OUTCOME: this was funded from other sources

VOTE - Backup battery pack

When I'm at an event or protest, I often find my battery reaches critical levels, meaning I have to resort to turning my phone off. Social media and video recording use large amounts of battery power.

With a battery recharge pack, I would be able to keep myself and the world updated as much as needed, as events unfold.
