In the event of an EMP strike or solar flare, all of your electronic devices are vulnerable to destruction.
In 1836, English scientist Michael Faraday conducted an experiment on electrostatic charges that resulted in the creation of the container that bears his name. A Faraday cage is an enclosure made of conductive material that blocks both static and non-static electrical fields.
There are many less complicated ways that you can improvise an EMP-proof container of your own for a far less expensive price tag.

An EMP of sufficient magnitude to damage electronic devices can be generated solely by a nuclear airburst, and will only be effective within a small radius, say 30 miles from the blast’s epicenter. This protects devices from a weapons EMP strike, a solar flare event, or a lightning strike. Although these homemade Faraday cages are perhaps not as stylish and elegant as the retail units, they should be just as effective.
It is vital that none of your electronics directly contact the metal of the container. It is important to add that your make-shift Faraday cages should be grounded in order to disperse the energy.

They are “guaranteed” to protect your items from an EMP strike, but collecting on that guarantee could be rather difficult, given the circumstances that would cause the necessity for that protection.
