Florence is headed this way, and my thoughts have turned to emergency preparedness

NEWS – Here in North Carolina, we’ve experienced way too many hurricanes coming ashore over the years.  Florence seems to headed our way right now, and it’s time to think about laying in supplies in case we experience power outages and disturbances in other services.  The SolarPuff light would be a good light to have on hand in case of such emergencies, or it would be great to use for camping and other outdoor activities.

The SolarPuff is made of water-resistant and recyclable PET, so it’s suitable for indoor or outdoor use.  The small cube weighs 2.6 ounces and folds down to only 0.25″ thick, and it can be hung on a backpack with the solar panel exposed to charge the batteries.  Opened up, the SolarPuff can light up a 100 ft² room.  It has three modes: low, high, and flashing emergency light.  You can expect up to 12 hours of light from batteries that have had 12 hours of charging time.

It’s available in a soft-white version or a bright white version.  Each is $29.99 at Amazon.

  2. I would be much happier with a solar panel with USB output to keep my gadgets charged during a power outage, but that’s the geek in me speaking.
