Guardian Flashlight Lantern

Unless you’ve got an elaborate backup power and lighting system installed in your home, keeping a few flashlights handy in the event of an emergency is not a bad idea. The Guardian is another take on the ‘always recharging’ idea, but has a unique lantern shaped design that’s easy to carry and also allows it to be used hands-free.

It’s made of ABS plastic which means it can survive a drop or two, and easily hangs on the charging cradle which you plug into the wall. While charging the lantern remains off, but an electroluminescent panel on the cradle provides a small source of light making it easy to find in the dark. With a runtime of just 10 hours and no replaceable batteries, I have to question the Guardian’s usefulness as an emergency light. But as a flashlight that won’t blind you in the middle of the night, it’s not a bad idea.

The Guardian should be available from Vessel in January for $29.
