Rumble: My Life in Four Bags #3: Crocodile Clamps

What more is in those four bags I always travel with, making the life of an aid worker, a “globetrotter by necessity”, sustainable? Well.. Crocodile clamps !

Going from hi-tech to low-tech. I always carry a set of wires with crocodile clamps. Easy to make connections between incompatible cables or to bridge video/audio/telephone connections, or to test any connection. Last time I used them extensively was on the boat trip we made from the UK to the Canaries. When lightning took out most of the electronics. I used the crocodile clamp wires to test the shortwave transmitter, the radio fax receiving software, and the boat’s antenna tuner.

Don’t leave home without it.
