In Hurricane Sandy many people ended up with dead cel phones after the battery died and there was no electricty available for the recharger. Remember that your cell phone batteries will last indefinmitely if you (1) keep the cell-phone shut off, preferably with the battery removed and (2) keep calls short and only related to actual emergency needs.
Thanks caregiver222 .. excellent advice. It was a bad situation. As soon as a few stores got use of their business generators (powered by natural gas) they immediately set up "cellphone charging stations" and "warming spots" but to watch the battery get less and less and be without backup was tenuous.
