CES 2016: Etón Corporation Debuts New Additions to Best-Selling American Red Cross Blackout Buddy Product Line

(LAS VEGAS, NV – Booth #31022, South Hall 3 – January 6, 2015) – Etón Corporation (, the industry leader in preparedness products and creator of high-performance, eco-minded consumer products, announces a new addition to the company’s successful American Red Cross Blackout Buddy line and a new innovation for its best selling Blackout Buddy product. The new American Red Cross Blackout Buddy Charge and updated Blackout Buddy will both debut at Etón’s booth, #31022, in South Hall 3.


Etón is also proud to announce an exciting new innovation for its existing, best-selling American Red Cross Blackout Buddy; the addition of swivel movement. This will enable consumers to direct light (either the flashlight or nightlight) wherever they need it while it’s plugged into the wall socket. A fantastic new feature to make a great product even better!


The American Red Cross Blackout Buddy Charge builds upon the qualities of its predecessor, the Blackout Buddy, incorporating a large, rechargeable lithium battery and dual USB charging ports. UL certified, the Blackout Buddy Charge plugs conveniently into any wall socket and enables you to also charge your USB charging devices through two 5V/1A USB ports. And when the power is out the Blackout Buddy Charge has enough stored power in its 2000mAh rechargeable lithium battery to fully charge most smartphones. Like the other Blackout Buddy line products, the Blackout Buddy Charge is an emergency LED blackout flashlight that also acts as a nightlight.


Featuring a slim and sleek design, the Blackout Buddy Charge is fashioned to fit snug against the wall when plugged in to a wall outlet without sacrificing aesthetics and making the most of limited outlets by enabling you to also charge your USB devices. Another new feature is swivel movement of the plug, enabling you to direct light wherever you need it. 


"We are proud that the American Red Cross Blackout Buddy Charge and updated Blackout Buddy not only help today’s consumers keep their devices charged, but that they help even when the power is out providing emergency light and power for smartphones,” says Esmail Hozour of Etón Corporation. “So today’s consumers can stay in contact with loved ones and contact emergency services when needed.”  


The updated Blackout Buddy ($14.99) and Blackout Buddy Charge ($29.99) will both be available in 2016. To learn more about Etón and the company’s products, please visit
