Light on Demand - just in case

Power outages are always a scary adventure. I was channel surfing (vegging out after a 10-day visit with mom, the original Energizer bunny) and Ellen was featuring this desk lamp on her show — doling out a lamp to all audience members. It got me thinking how useful this LED product could be if I were to find myself without power and in the dark for an extended period of time.

This Energy Star-approved table lamp uses energy-efficient LED (light emitting diodes) technology, “over five times more efficient than regular incandescent bulbs at one third the energy cost.” These bulbs are “cool to the touch, virtually unbreakable and never need replacing.”

This sleek innovation packs more power than you might think. It serves not only as a typical desk lamp but a light stick can be removed and serve as a portable area light for about 20 hours. After that time, if you’re still in the dark, you can keep the light stick on by replacing the rechargeable packs with conventional alkaline batteries (thank you, Energizer, natch.) Be sure to check out the user manual for all the details. Right now, it’s available at Target, but alas, as of this writing, not on the website. (And we’re confirming the elusive price best estimate $70.)
