Waka Waka Solar Lamp

I live in Texas.  Texas gets big storms.  We have the potential for tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, ice, and all around high winds.  Big storms means we need to be prepared in case the power go out.

Last year I wrote about our Durabeam flashlights that act as torches when placed on their base and reflected off a white ceiling.  They have the ability to light up an entire room.  We have one in every room, so they’re easy to access when needed.  It’s astonishing how much light they put out and I love them for that.

Their only drawback is they rely on batteries to operate. They can run up to 34 hours on a new set, but there have been plenty of times when power outages lasted longer than that.

The Waka Waka Solar Lamp is the perfect emergency-accompaniment to our flashlights.

I imagine ours will sit in my office, where the blinds are open all day.  That way, it’s ready to light our way no matter when we need it.

Seriously cool emergency kit tool.  Seriously cool light source.  Seriously cool there are no batteries to buy and change.

If you know someone who is putting off building their emergency kit or just loves to hike or camp, these would make an ideal gift.

Look away, Boy.  Or at the very least, act surprised when it shows up at your house!

Happy preparing for any circumstance, y’all!

Hi Patti,

We were just talking about getting our hurricane kit ready for the summer and now that my daughter is moving to Bryan to go to school we need to make one for her. I'm going to show this to the hubs...we need to have this for sure.

Happy Wednesday! Nice to meet you :). #TxWomenBloggers

Thanks, Corina! Most have us have been without power at some point and know how important it is to have a reliable lamp during those times. That you don't have to scrounge for batteries makes it even better! I appreciate you shopping through my affiliate links! ~smooch~
