The weather has been pretty savage recently, with parts of the UK losing power to homes as a result. In the event of a power cut, how prepared are you?
I bet there is a stash of candles somewhere, maybe with a lighter close by if you are lucky. But that is so last year and the many years before.
My first favourite product of 2012 is the Bright Light Ranger, a rechargeable torch that is a home necessity, it`s that good.
So how is a torch really that good?
Firstly, my eyesight is really badâ€¦I mean really bad. I cannot see a thing once it goes dark, so a good light source is important to me.
The Bright Light Ranger is a great light source, with 12 Power LED`s (much brighter than ordinary LEDs – and 12 of them) and a huge wide angle beam that spans a 40 square metre area.
Secondly, this is an eco torch, with no doubt. The LEDs are low energy, the rechargeable element displaces batteries and it also has a hand crank when the charge runs down.
The charge running down would be rare though as a full charge lasts for over 12 hours continuous use.
The re-chargeable battery can be charged via the mains adaptor supplied, a 12V car socket, or with the wind-up handle in emergencies.
A 6V DC socket is provided on the rear to allow even more lights to be plugged when required. It is all housed in a tough and compact casing.
There a not many portable high-intensity lighting solutions that can match the long range, wide scope beam.
The uses for such a torch are endless. It is a home necessity and would be perfect for camping too.
The Bright Light Ranger`s final good point is the price, retailing at £69.95, you will not find a better performing torch at this price.
You can get this awesome product from Amazon, you will not be disappointed.
Nevada`s Managing Direct says, â€œPower LED`s are a fantastic new light source and when used in the â€œBright Lightâ€ will illuminate a complete back garden, workshop, stables, or other large area, for over 12 hours between charges.â€
