We just had an interesting conversation regarding a smart phone that lasted the effects of being covered with so many inches of snow. Now I'm not sure if it was covered by snow for so many days, but to his surprise, he was excited to learn that it survived, and that it still had 2% battery life!. What tools have you used, say in the office or out in the field, that seem to have that rugged quality to it and just last forever before it breaks down. Feel free to include your favorite trucks, LOL.

My friends used to make fun of me because I was still using a Microsoft Zune to listen to music until 2017. It still works to this day, and occasionally just needs a battery replacement. I finally caved and subscribed to a streaming service instead but the Zune was a loyal companion for 10 years.
Alternately, I have found that keeping a small folding credit card shaped knife in my wallet has been useful on tons of occasions where i needed to make a small hole or even sharpen a pencil. I like it so much that I bought them for friends. Just remember that they need to be left behind when going to the airport!
LOL, I was attending a social event at a park, and we needed something sharp to cut a certain item, when my friend popped out his multi tool knife, I told myself I need one of those, has been quite the handy tool every time I attend a park event, thanks for sharing...
