Blackout Buddy H2O

OK, so the warm weather states made it through this hurricane season fine, but now we’re heading into the months where power outages for snow-heavy sections of the U.S. become an all too frequent occurrence. No matter where you live, this is a tool that you might want to check out: It’s called the Blackout Buddy H2O, and it provides an emergency light with just a little bit of water.

Thanks to its environmentally friendly and water-activated Magnesium-oxide battery module, you simply need to add a small cup of water once per day and you’re good for 72 hours of continuous light. If it starts to dim, just add more water. It’s housed in a rugged little body that’s good for up to 10 years storage without degradation, and it’s safe to use in any weather conditions, even if it’s submerged in water. [Purchase]
