"Don't worry. We teach you a little electrics and you can help make some."
"I bet Chantelle doesn't need those appliances, but we can verify that before we butcher anything. I'm betting even wall appliances can give us a few parts we can use! This joint is gonna have a charger in every room, plus some for trade with other bozos!"
GM NOTE: If you want to do some creative writing about stuff that happens during the project, go ahead. Put words in Stevie or Sonya's mouths if it helps and we can edit their dialog if we think something slightly different would be better for the characters, but I doubt we'd have to change much.
Sonya is an electrical engineer so she knows about typical wattages and what sort of surge protection would be required, issues with recharging batteries or using them for unintended purposes (car batteries used for kitchen appliances, whatever), and so on. Or if she doesn't know it, she can figure it out.
Stevie knows rudimentary electronics and mechanics, and is the kind of guy to know how to program all the VCRs of the world, but can't program a computer.
They decided music is a priority for sanity and culture purposes, so they're on that. Unfortunately iPods have a habit of getting corrupted or screwed up sometimes, necessitating "Synching" with a computer. To that end, they'll need to power one of those at some point.
And more important than that, they're making as many power generation devices as they can muster, with parts scavenged from useless devices, cars, computers, whatever.
When you're done (or if you don't bother), go to the 6th floor or individual rooms. Don't take Ben too far into the evening because an event has been planned for it!
