An electromagnetic pulse is a sudden powerful emission of energy that usually destroys electronics and other devices. Civilization as we know it now can be crippled by an electromagnetic pulse if it hits at great magnitudes. These power bursts can happen naturally when a solar flare and the earth find themselves in a certain position. Upon explosion of a nuclear weapon, energy waves are transmitted which contain the electromagnetic pulses. At other times, the pulse could be artificial and targeted using electromagnetic bombs directed in a specific place by enemies.
When this happens, it can lead to a lot of damage to electronics and lead to panicking of people all over. Such gadgets as phones, computers, generators and others that use power usually get damaged due to the high amounts of energy exposed to them. Such places as cities would be full of chaos when the energy burst brings down power creating a blackout in such places. It is always better to survive an emergency by being prepared before it happens and since these blasts are unpredictable one should be ready at all times. Electronics such as computers, generators and solar panels should be protected in case of the pulses. There are certain bags designed to give protection against these energy waves by restricting waves from entering or leaving the bags.
Laptops, phones or any other device can have a bag customized to fit it so as to protect them from these energy blasts. Silver and aluminum and some other materials were found to be able to block these energy waves by Faraday as he was doing some scientific studies. These bags are really helpful since they save you on having to buy new gadgets once the situation happens and destroys them. It is good to cover phones using the bags to protect oneself from the pulses being constantly emitted by the phones. There are ways that people use to get access to phones and laptops using the signals emitted by the devices.
To protect the information stored on such devices, one can put them in the bags to prevent their signals from getting out and risk being intercepted by hackers. It is possible to store personal data in credit cards and other payment methods and these utilities need protection against theft of the data. One should be properly prepared to counter the occurrence of such a pulse by shielding things like generators or solar to avoid power outage. An occurrence of such pulses can cause a lot of damage to extensive areas and make communication and other things depending on power to fail.
