Hey Tom, will the Blendtec blend without wires or a cord? Can you stuff your blender in a backpack and blend while out camping on on a hike?
Oster hybrid CORDLESS blender for Under $10 WARNiNG: This can be dangerous to use.. especially for people unfamiliar with using blenders and/or electric drills. Recommend using safety glases when blending with this technique and use your own discrestion when attempting to do this. This is only meant to be used as information on what I did to come up with a solution for being able to blend with Oster blender cordlessly.
This is info and demonstration in how to create a DIY High speed, high power, cordless electri power, compact, lite weight, blender for under 10 bucks. What you need is standard canning jar and lid, under 2 bucks, common drill bit attachment(probably already have the jar, lid and bit attachment at home), the Oster replacment blender blade assembly and bushing (common at most hardware stores or direct from Oster, or better yet buy used one at thrift store or garage sale, or if you are fortunte, u already have one laying around. The blade assembly for the Oster has been the same and interchangeable with all their blenders since at least 1980s and before through to the current units. And finally you need a cordless drill. I recommend the Craftsman 1/2 cordless, high speed (up to 1400 rpms and variable), high power (400 pounds of torque), powered by a long lasting rechargeable lithium battery pack.
Also see article on Apartment Therapy with an article on this kind of project except it is using the Oster motor base instead of an electric drill motor. Titled "Make a Blender Out of a Mason Jar" http://www.unplggd.com/unplggd/make-a...
