Lighting Your Home When the Power Goes Out

During a blackout, the first thing you typically do is find a way to get a source of light. If the lights go out during the day, it normally isn’t an issue as you can open up your curtains for natural light. What do you do, though, if the lights go out at night? There are various options out there. You should always make sure your house has at least one of them on hand.


Flashlights are great portable tools for light. Battery powered incandescent or halogen flashlights are probably the most commonly used flashlight. Depending on the battery required, they can be used and powered on for hours.

LED flashlights are another option. These flashlights use a LED bulb that has a longer use life than an incandescent bulb. In addition, they don’t use up the battery as quickly as its counterpart and can last almost ten times longer than other flashlights. They tend to be more powerful in illumination as well.

Head Lamps

Head lamps are a not so common idea when you need a light source during a blackout. However, these lamps are very versatile, portable and easy to store when not in use. Attached to a hat or helmet on your head, you can turn them on and off as needed. There are even options that just have an elastic strap that fits around your head if you don’t want the full head gear. These are great to light your way from room to room.
