The American Red Cross encourages everyone to be prepared for emergencies and disasters.  Since these events can strike suddenly, individuals and families can make a difference by gathering important emergency supplies, making a plan and being informed. 

Being Red Cross Ready is to join the ranks of the millions of people who are preparing themselves today to face and overcome tomorrow’s emergencies.  Simple preparedness actions can equip people with the necessities that can make all the difference should an emergency occur.

Three smart ideas

Well, actually four. This emergency LED blackout flashlight doubles as a nightlight and features 2 USB ports to charge up to two smartphones.

Ready for action

Just leave the slim and trim Blackout Buddy Charge in your wall socket. When the power goes out, the Blackout Buddy Charge automatically turns on for emergency light and backup power, thanks to the long-lasting 2000mAh rechargeable lithium battery.

In a flash

Fold up the prongs and you’ve got a handy dandy, super bright 3 LED flashlight. When it’s fully charged, you’ll have up to 30 hours of light.

Power out, charge on

When the power goes out, you’ll have enough backup power to fully recharge one smartphone.

Save space

Need more outlets to keep all your phones charged? You’ve got it…times two. With two 5V 1A USB ports you can charge two smartphones simultaneously, or one in half the time.

Shine on

Blackout Buddy Charge doubles as an LED nightlight, so you can keep your kid’s rooms, hallways, or office illuminated. And, with a swivel-action plug, you can direct the light wherever you need it.
