What do you do when there’s a black out? Do you locate your candles only to find you’re out of matches, or reach for your flashlight only to find that it’s run out of batteries?
The You will have a chance to WIN this very same flashlight, if you scroll down (after you read my review)!, which I received from , works well in this type of situation and many others! There are 5 LED lights with 2 different settings for high/low light. There is a faint blue light and glow in the dark ring so that you can find the flashlight in the dark.
This is what I received in the box for the UltraLight: cell phone adaptor, battery, instructions, warranty card and the flashlight. I like the weight of the flashlight. It definitely seems well-made and heavy-duty. I like that is has more than one function – the radio will come in handy for emergency situations/fun when camping. I’ve always wanted a wind-up/rechargeable flashlight. I hate when I run out of batteries, since most flashlights use large batteries that I don’t have extras of.
Features of the UltraLight:
- 90 decibal siren/flashing red light – perfect for emergency situations!
- 5 really bright and energy efficient LEDs that never need replacing
- cell phone charger (for Nokia phones, but you can buy adaptors for other makes) for 10 minutes of talk time
- NOAA Weather band AM/FM radio
To use the UltraLight, you just crank the bar on the back of it (which turns easily)for at least 1 minute, for 90 minutes of low light/60 minutes of high light. If you buy the AC adaptor, you can fully charge it and it will run the light for 20 hours on low/5 hours on high. There is also enough ‘juice’ to power a cell phone for enough time to make an emergency call just by winding for 1 minute, or to run a siren for 30 minutes! I like that the bottom of this unit is flat so that you can stand it up, and that there is a little strap to put it on your wrist or hang it up.
Where the UltraLight would come in handy:
- while camping
- to keep in the car for emergencies
- at home for black outs or looking under the sink, for instance
