Don’t get caught off guard by a power outage when it’s this easy to stay safe. 

Having your power go out in the middle of a storm is always a frantic situation, especially at night. You’re left feeling your way through the dark trying to find a flashlight so you can round up the family. There is a much easier way to handle the situation with the Blackout Buddy LED Flashlight/Nightlight.

Simply plug them into your wall outlets in whichever rooms you choose. When the power goes out, they will automatically kick on. This will calm panicked children left in the dark and allow you to easily make your way around the house.

The Blackout Buddy doubles as a flashlight when you unplug it and fold in the prongs. The three super bright LEDs last for up to four hours, giving you plenty of time to fetch your blackout kit or make your way outside to fire up the generator.

When not in use, you can leave them plugged in to serve as nightlights for your kids or to help guide your way to the bathroom.

Their compact design doesn’t block the other outlet like a lot of similar products. This allows you the convenience of using outlets as usual without having to move the Blackout Buddy out of your way.

At only $20 for a pair they are a great deal and even qualify for Amazon Prime.

If you live in an area that is prone to storms, these truly are a must have to ensure your kids and your own safety when the power goes out unexpectedly.
