The cordless lockpick tool is more for the BOB (so yeah, assuming you'll have juice before the trek home, just have to keep it charged up).
The kit is more for going on a supply run from your base of operations (so after the SHTF). So, this assumes you have power there to charge powered
devices. Even then, a more manual pick may be more useful in the long run.
As far as generators go, diesel is my suggestion. Quieter, and more reliable long term. Also, more adaptable. Biodiesel, alcohol, etc. For a supply
run, I'd imagine you'd use a vehicle, but if not, could have a team where some carry tools, others carry goods, etc.
For bump keys, you'd have to carry a set of different types, assess the right one to use, etc. While they can do the job, may take a lot longer. And
really, for $20, I'm cool with the convenience of the tool.
