While summer offers a welcome relief from winter, the summer months are still prone to serious weather. Experts recommend that you have an emergency kit on hand to help you stay prepared for a hurricane, tornado or thunderstorm. One of the most important things in your kit is a reliable source of lighting. At Batteries Plus, we have an impressive selection of flashlights and other portable lighting options. Here are a few top items, perfect for your home emergency kit.
A reliable flashlight is a must-have for every home. Here are three flashlights that are well-suited for emergency situations.
NEBO Redline Flex Rechargeable Flashlight
In an emergency, you may require the use of both your hands. Batteries Plus has a full selection of hands-free lights, including:
Headlamps - Perfect for checking fuse boxes, working on vehicles and other up-close work.
Lanterns - Rechargeable lanterns provide a nice source of multidirectional light perfect for eating, reading and lighting common areas.
NEBO Flipit 400 - This portable battery-powered LED light functions like a traditional light switch. Just affix it to any surface and flip the switch to activate the 400 lumen light.
Batteries are a crucial addition to your emergency kit, used to power things like flashlights and radios. We carry alkaline batteries from trusted brands like Duracell, Rayovac and our own Batteries Plus brand alkaline batteries.
Disposable lithium batteries are another solid choice for emergency situations. Lithium batteries can be used in many of the same applications as alkaline batteries, but can last up to 6X longer and hold their power for up to 20 years in storage.
