When we go camping or spend time outdoors, especially living in Central America, we are always on a race with time before the sun sets.
Even during the longest day of the year the sun sets in the tropics around 6:30 pm. There are no such things as evenings here.
So what does this usually mean?
It means we need to trudge along with us a ton of flashlights, and other lights if we want to stay out longer than that. And frankly, I’m not into even more gear than we already take with two kids and a dog.
Lights for Camping and Outdoors – Cordless LED Work Light
I have no idea how I stumbled on to this gem – the Cordless LED Work Light but it’s one of those gadgets that you look at and say:
“Where have you been all my life!”
And that’s no exaggeration.
This incredible light is quite small, probably the size of a paperback book. Weighs around 1.5 pounds.
You can attach it to your belt and carry it along.
But the most incredible part of it all, you charge it thru a USB port that lasts for hours and hours.
It’s waterproof – I’m still a bit nervous to fully check this out. But I have used it in the rain and it worked great.
Confession – the light is so bright that we’ve started to use it in our house, because it saves us money on electricity. I know, it’s crazy, but if it works, why not?
It has several light options you can chose:
- The blinding light
- Bright, regular light
- Emergency blinking red/blue light
I never leave home without it anymore. I can even charge it while driving somewhere with a regular charger.
