Press Release

American Red Cross CLIPRAY and BLACKOUT BUDDY by Etón – Lighting Your Path To Safety!

Etón Corporation together with the American Red Cross announces the release of the CLIPRAY and BLACKOUT BUDDY.

Etón continues its tradition of award-winning design as well as its relationship with the American Red Cross to introduce into their family of products the CLIPRAY and BLACKOUT BUDDY. Both items are a must, not just for the adventurous types but also those at work and home. With each product both compact and sleek, anyone can maintain peace of mind at little cost and knowing that in the case of unexpected emergencies, they will have a reliable, durable source of power and light.

Both the CLIPRAY and BLACKOUT BUDDY contain a powerful LED flashlight. They also have the capacity for internal power through the manual crank and a USB cell phone charger as a means for charging when no other power source is available. For the outdoor adventurer, the CLIPRAY fastens with a hands-free carabiner clip. While at home, the BLACKOUT BUDDY plugs into the wall, hugging it inconspicuously, awaiting the unexpected power outage or other emergencies. When the power fails, the light engages, making it easy to find and use for any age in any situation.

“Etón’s partnership with the American Red Cross continues to be one of mutual interest to provide a reliable safety net for ourselves and our loved ones,” says Esmail Amid-Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation. “These two products, along with the American Red Cross product family, are the perfect items and gifts for friends and family to be prepared, and yet another way to support the important work of the American Red Cross.”

The American Red Cross CLIPRAY and BLACKOUT BUDDY by Etón will be available in the first quarter of 2010.  The retail price for each unit is USD $15. For more information, please visit

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the nearly 1 million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross Through almost 900 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some 4 million people give blood—the gift of life—through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The Red Cross helps thousands of U.S. service members separated from their families by military duty stay connected. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, a global network of 183 national societies, the Red Cross helps restore hope and dignity to the world's most vulnerable people. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
