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.
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

Found those lights at Costco 2 for 20. Work great.
Just bought these also from Costco. They are branded Sunbeam and the night/emergency light is blue not white for the ones I purchased. Was on sale for $15.99 for a 2 pack. Everything else about them seems to be the same as the Etekcity ones.
Jack… how long did the power stay out for you that night?
Like 2.5 hours, no big deal. Definitely rather back up the truck to the door than drag out the 7500 TroyBilt for that.
I’m also a fan of the Etekcity “Portable LED Camping Lantern”. They are around $10 on Amazon and totally worth it in my opinion. I keep one in my car and one in the house. Great video Jack. When I show this to my wife, she realizes I’m not so crazy when I get excited about extension cords, inverters, backup gas storage, etc.
Hey, is the Free Seed Exchange now a dead link?
Thanks for letting me know I will remove it later today.
That’s pretty awesome, Jack! I have a battery backup or UPS for my computer (mostly just for proper shutdown purposes), but that’s about it. Being able to keep the TV on is a definite plus during a weather event.
These lights are fantastic. I bought a 2-pack based on your recommendation and they got here yesterday. Real smart design and much better than the old Sylvania ones that I bought at Depot a few years back. I’m buying another two pack today.
Thanks for the suggestion!
