With this flashlight in your car’s glove compartment or in an emergency preparedness kit, you’ll be ready for most any emergency. The Satechi LightMate Emergency LED Flash Light looks, at first glance, like many small flashlights on the market today. It’s much more versatile than other flashlights, though. Without the lozenge-shaped plastic cover, you can use the LightMate like a normal, directional flashlight. Put the plastic cover in place, and it provides ambient light for the room. The light operates at three intensity levels, or it strobes to attract attention or even flashes SOS. The LEDs conserve power, so the USB-rechargeable battery lasts longer. Remove the plastic cap from the bottom of the flashlight to expose an emergency glass breaker that can save your life if you are trapped in your car due to an accident. Unscrew the glass breaker to expose the USB port that can charge your phone. The high-strength alloy steel body can survive being run over by a car, and it’s waterproof to withstand inclement weather, accidental submersion, and spills. That’s a lot of functionality in a flashlight not much longer than a cell phone. Regular price for the Satechi LightMate Emergency LED Flash Light is $39.99, but it’s available now from Satechi for $29.99.
