Use copper wire and a Popsicle stick to make an AMAZING tool for your bug-out bag

With just a few common items that are probably already in your garage you can make a portable soldering iron that doesn’t require and external power supply. This is an unusual tool to pack in a bug-out back because it would have been so impractical before now. You never know what sort of gear or salvage you may need to repair on the road, and something like this could make all the difference in the world. Radios, headlamps, and more could have broken wires or circuit boards that could be easily fixed with a little know how. Wrap about a foot of soldering wire around the lighter and you’ve got everything you need in a compact tool that weighs practically nothing.
