I was looking at a website that I frequently browse for deals the other day when I came across something that I have never seen before. It was a set of rechargeable emergency LED light bulbs. These LED bulbs work like regular light bulbs. The difference is that they contain a battery backup system that will provide light in the event of a power outage. You just plug the bulbs into a standard fixture and the bulbs will charge when the light is turned on. When the power goes out the bulb will run off of the internal battery as long as the fixture is in the on position. Some of the bulbs come with an accessory that you can screw the light bulb into and switch it on an off without having to use a lamp. This will allow you to move the light bulb from room to room in case of a power outage. Just like standard LED bulbs, they come in different lumens (brightness) to suit the needs of your environment. I purchased a set of four and I will be placing them in areas throughout the house in which lighting at night would be necessary for safely navigating. This includes the basement since this is the darkest part of the house and one of the places you need to go during tornado warnings. See below for other advantages of using rechargeable LED bulbs.
