What with all the Arctic temperatures and snow this winter, I find my thoughts turning to power outages and emergency preparedness. This 30-Day Emergency Lantern from Brookstone promises to keep you in the light even if you lose power. The LED lantern has fourlight modes – low, medium, high, and flash – that can produce up to 300 lumens (high) or even provide 30 days of continuous light at the low setting. It will provide 3.5 days on the medium setting or 15 days when in SOS flashing mode. Its rubber housing protects it from shock, and it’s water-resistant. You can use it as a lantern, or you can even hang it from the ceiling for room lighting. It’s available in gray or orange for $49.99.
