Automatic Emergency Lighting For Your Home

Power-Failure Light (Image courtesy Hammacher Schlemmer) By Andrew Liszewski

Where I grew up Summer storms were usually pretty wicked and most of the time resulted in a power failure for at least a couple of hours. So we always had plenty of flashlights on hand not to mention boxes of batteries to keep the GameBoys running. This Power-Failure Light though means you don’t have to stumble around in the dark looking for those flashlights in the event you’re without electricity.

It connects between the socket and lightbulb of a standard table or floor lamp and provides up to 8 hours of emergency backup lighting with 6 bright LEDs. It also uses a set of built-in rechargeable batteries as a power source which are constantly recharged as long as your home has power. (And the lamp’s plugged in.) It even includes a photocell that will ensure the LED lights only come on when it’s dark outside and they’re really needed.

The Power-Failure Light is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $39.95.

    Ahh, but how does it know if the power is out or if you just have the lights off?
