In my neck of the woods it gets dark out very, very early this time of year and being in a downtown setting it can make even everyday tasks like walking home from work a bit more dangerous. Thankfully since I rarely leave this computer desk prison of mine it’s not an issue for me but I know for others it can be a real concern.
If a personal alarm gives you a bit more peace of mind then this credit-card sized version will ensure you always have one on hand. Besides an ear-piercing siren the Flashcard also includes a single LED to be used as a flashlight and 3 other red LEDs that function as a safety flasher. It has a waterproof body and the included battery is rated for about 50 hours of light.
The Emergency Flashcard is available from AJ Prindle for $14.95.
