Getting ready for work, it occurred to me that I carry a lot of battery operated devices. Here is my list, how about yours?
Looks like 8 for me.

Penlight
Back-up penlight with laser pointer
Pocket knife with built in light
Car key
Cell Phone
Watch
Hearing Aids
Posture monitoring device

Cellphone, pocket knife with flashlight, and a watch. Occasionally a transistor radio.

What I don't have is a key fob for the car. Too old for that :wink:

Nothing except when I got the car keys. All else is optional.

I used to tease my friend saying he had a man-purse because he always carried an ugly lunch bag with him with papers, cell phone, keys, change, and other various crap in it. A lot of the time, it had beer in it, too. :)

Phone & Fob, if you’re driving in a car does that count as “on your person”? Car has a battery and a fob for the stereo.

Hi Eric, let’s say that it is what you have before you get in your car :) In my case the key stays in my pocket anyway.

Well, I don’t have a man purse but I do wear cargo pants for all this stuff…..

Used to have the cellphone always, sometimes in a belt pouch, back when it told me were to go and when.
Now I just have a battery in my head, hearing aid. Bluetooth direct to the brain almost.
Cellphone is around here somewhere.

There was a time when a bag like that carried a portable radio/phone.
