  3. Throughout the summer I’ve been taking my PirateBox around with me.

    A rechargable battery, stashed in my solar backpack, has been very useful 🙂

    The best use of it to date has been asking people at events to post photos they’ve taken; some cool shots at a stag party, and upset my SO wouldn’t allow me to take it to the wedding 😉
