My Favorite LED Emergency Power Failure Light

Since I published my video using my Steven Harris design mobile battery bank during a recent power outage, I have been asked a lot about the LED Power Failure Light seen in it.

Here is the HD version of that video.

These are by far my favorite Power Failure Lights.

These are by far my favorite Power Failure Lights.

You see the light in the bath room off the hallway.

I have tried dozens of brands of these over the years, they are all useful while they last.  Generally at some point the over charge and stay on even when they should be off.

I have never been happy with any of them long term until I found these from Etekcity.

I have been running these now for over a year with no issues, they work and just keep on working.  The only down side is they take up an entire outlet.  I am going to change a few of my outlets to quads to deal with that, I like them that much.

They also have motion sensors so when you walk by them in the dark they turn on and go back off after no motion is detected for 30 seconds. This prevent stubbed toes in dark hallway, great for night bathroom trips too, with out lighting up the entire house.

They are plug and play, you don’t have to configure anything. You an pick them up and take them with you like a flashlight.

You can find them on Amazon they are called, Etekcity LED Night Light / Flashlight: Rechargeable Emergency Light

Get Your TSP Top Bar Limited Edition Hive Before they Sell Out

Okay guys now this is cool for all you beekeepers and soon to be beekeepers out there and just in time to still be able to get bees this year.

I did make one mistake in the video saying you could choose your type of plywood.  Kevin Keagen and Peanut made a command decision to make these only in the higher quality CARB compliant 13 layer plywood.

The price on these is 344 including shipping in the US.  Yes shipping is included, no discount codes required, one price for the top notch version of this hive

To get this hive while you can go to http://elishasspring.com/shop/tsp-serial-number-top-bar-hive/

Here is a short video of my hive.  Please note that again I said you could choose your plywood but the guys decided to include the upgrade to CARB compliant 13 layer plywood on all of them.

Episode-1773- Outdoor Cooking, Grilling, Smoking and More

Grilled Salted Steak - Just One Thing You'll Learn About Today!

Grilled Salted Steak – Just One Thing You’ll Learn About Today!

This is yet another Tuesday show chosen by an audience poll.  It also wraps up Tuesday shows for April.  But remember you still have until May 3rd to vote on May’s Tuesday “Just Jack” shows.

Today we talk about one of my favorite things, cooking and doing it out doors.  If I took a guess I would say I generally cook out doors about 4-5 days a week on average year round.  Yes even in the cold of winter!  There are weeks in the summer when I cook outside almost every day for weeks on end.

Why?  The keys to me are

  • Flavor nothing beats grilling or smoking
  • Recreation I just enjoy it
  • Not heating up the house
  • Space we have a nice but small kitchen

In fact when we lived in Pennsylvania for three years neighbors thought I was a bit wacky standing on a snow covered deck with the weber smoking away.

Again it is just my preferred way to cook.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Why is this a survival topic
    • You have to eat
