Power outages – even short ones – can be a real pain. However, they are not just inconvenient. Loss of electrical power can leave you blind in the middle of the night fumbling around. It’s easy under these conditions to fall down, bump into things, and break bones.

Here are two emergency power failure lights to keep you safe when the lights go out.

A three mode switch allows you to set them to all LED’s on, half LED’s on, or power off mode.
