If you live in an apartment or another small space, you may think that having a generator is completely out of the cards for you. I move around a lot and certainly never expected to have one. But the Jackery 1500 Solar Generator is absolutely perfect for small space living. Full Disclosure: I received this generator in return for an honest review. This article is about my actual experience using the Jackery in multiple situations. Why is the Jackery 1500 Solar Generator so good for small spaces? I live in a 600 square foot apartment in the city, and I’m currently working on a guide for small space and urban prepping. This is an addition that takes up very little space in your home or apartment. Here is a photo of mine in the morning. It was charging devices all night and running a lamp for a few hours while I was reading. It will be tucked behind my nightstand and remain plugged in for storage.

Production boosts are divided into four basic categories: efficient use of space, soil amendment, controlled environment technology, and season extension. In this article I’ll discuss ideas in each category. Efficient use of space The very first (and perhaps easiest) means of producing your food production is to make a better use of your space. If you’ve only ever been able to put four zucchini plants in your garden in the past, if we can find a way to put in eight plants, we’ve effectively doubled our zucchini harvest. We’ve become more efficient with our use of space. So, just what are some of our means of boosting our garden efficiency? Let’s take a look… 1.
