It's time to update your emergency kit with emergency candles.

Remember the power outage that hit New York City earlier this year? Think those city folk had any idea what to do without electricity pumping through their power lines?

As for outdoor enthusiasts, we're closer to the survivalist sector than most communities. In the case of a power outage, we know that something as simple as long burning emergency candles can really come in handy.

That's the reason we decided to gather a group of Amazon purchases that can give you the emergency candle preparedness that we should all retain.
