The problem with a power outage is that there is never a flashlight handy when the lights go out. Sure, you may know where your flashlights are and they may be fully charged but do you remember what’s lying on the floor or in the doorway? At least if you trip over something that you can’t see in your own home you know that you won’t sue yourself.
The Power Failure Light is a novel invention that makes a lot of sense. It’s a base that connects between your power socket and the light bulb. Six LED lights are fixed around it and when there’s a power outage they will switch on and give you a bright source of illumination in the dark.
It’s got rechargeable batteries that will provide 8 hours of light and an integrated photocell that makes sure it won’t switch on when the sun goes down or when the lights come back on. A couple of these at $39.95 spread in key rooms inside your home and who needs a flashlight?
