Poor man lantern.
https://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/0.html?spm=a2g0s.9042647.6.2.66e84c4...

Fits most Skyrays, Sofirn, BLF Q8, ect.
They take forever to get here. 3 Months.
But I found ‘em. A man with a few soda cans and a few lanterns,
needs this for the hurricane season. Maybe next season.

Cheers.

I’ve survived Andrew, Wilma and Irma. 15 hrs, 18 hrs and 84 hrs without power and candles help out a lot—the teacup sized ones found at any Dollar Store type place.

Portable mother batteries and two-three O2 Cool 10” battery fans go a long ways to making things bearable.

Don’t forget a good cooler like my Yeti Tundra 65. Spendy, but in Miami heat, 40# of ice won’t last long in a cheap cooler.

I was without power for 36 days when Andrew.
I bought a Kubota 7k diesel genny a year after. Still working fine.
However I only run it during the times I’m awake during the storm.
Which is almost never. I’m always drunk. Or sleeping.
I pay, however, my “kids” run the show.

Cheers.

I have a 16k PTO generator. Right now it’s gas but plan on having it diesel ran soon. Been wanting a newer tractor for awhile.

I’m lucky enough to be far enough inland the hurricanes normally don’t knock our power out for long. Our problem is twisters and ice storms. One of the two (or both) usually hit us about every 2-4 years and knocks us out for weeks.

The ice storms aint too bad as it’s easy enough to keep the beer cold.

Then you’re in a house and I’m in a condo in Miami Lakes, so despite having a working Harbor Freight 900w Storm Cat genny, we’re not supposed to run them.

I think the problem is that you linked to a product snapshot, which is probably specific to the account that placed the order.
I reckon you’re talking about this diffuser: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32991929153.html

we put a large cheap cooler inside an X-large cheap cooler. both cheaper (and better, i think) than one Yeti.
got us through Florence, Floyd, Fran, Isabel, Matthew, and Michael.

For indoor use ceiling bounce works well. For outdoor use those diffusers glare. Add a makeshift lampshade out of a plastic lid or plate on top to cut the glare.

Yeah, my Yeti 65 is more like 59-60qts, but there’s no denying that they hold ‘cold’ better than cheaper coolers, for longer.

To each his own.

I keep hearing yeti owners say that but have yet to see it. I even know far more former yeti owners that have the ozark trail and lifetime coolers that regret buying into the name.

Yeti makes a nice cooler but they aint doing anything special except market and mark up. There are plenty of roto-molded coolers out there now that are equal or better now. Heck even igloo has finally got on board and from what I’ve seen in the ads come out of the box with more features that the others for way less money.
