Believe it or not my husband and I are huge preppers. We love to be ready for anything and everything that life might throw at us. No. We don’t think there will be a zombie apocalypse anytime soon, but we do believe in mother nature and what she can throw at us. Being prepared is a huge step to finding confidence in the unknown. When my husband and I are preparing our bug in bags (we don’t need to bug out where we live) we know that having a good lighting system is imperative as well as food, medical supplies and protection.
Since we live in a very rural area the most threat that we will have if a big storm would hit is the loss of electricity. Our water is provided by a spring that is piped directly into the house so no fear of running out of water. But what do you do when the lights go out? If you don’t have a generator you better have some sort of light to show you the way. Besides having lanterns my husband and I firmly believe in having a great flashlight. Recently, we had the chance to check out the VuPoint Multi-Tool Kinetic Emergency Flashlight. This thing is really incredible!
The most important feature I feel that this flashlight has to offer is that it is twist to charge. It has an 800mAh rechargeable lithium battery which can be charged via a USB or by using the hand crank generator feature. For about every one minute you twist you are given about 15 minutes of charge (to fully charge twist for about 5 minutes). For me, it is so important to have a backup system like this on a flashlight because you never know about batteries.
The 200-lumen light has three brightness settings, which can all be controlled by the large button on the side of the flashlight. There are flash and SOS functions for emergency situations. Plus, the VuPoint includes several simple tools that are handy in an emergency, like a compass, mirror, can opener, and a whistle. All of the accessories that are included in the VuPoint are conveniently stashed away in the bottom of the flashlight itself.
With winter just around the corner and the weather supposed to take a little turn for the worst this year throughout the United States and beyond it is time to start thinking about keeping your family safe and secure during the uncertain weather patterns. Not only can the Vupoint light the way and have some amazing tools, but it also can charge your mobile devices. I would recommend to anyone to check out the VuPoint Multi-Tool Kinetic Emergency Flashlight. Not only is it very nicely made but it is also waterproof and can float. Keep one in your car, one in your emergency kit, and one in the cupboard where you used to keep the flashlights with dead batteries. You’ll always have light when you need it with VuPoint.
