@far911 – The only drawback is the initial setup cost, but compared to the benefits I think it's a good investment.

@NadineJ – Wow flexible panels on uniforms will make the process much faster. They don't need to stop to charge the equipment, now they could charge them while the operation is in progress.

@naperlpo – yes one of the biggest problems for military is the supply of power, food and other essentials. If we could solve the problem of power the military operations could be much stronger.
