LED Emergency Lights

a variety of LED emergency lights

By far the best type of lights, lamps and torches for use in survival situations are LEDs.

What exactly is an LED light?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, a relatively recent development in lighting technology. Because of the many advantages listed below, LEDs are rapidly replacing the older technologies; such as incandescent, fluorescent and halogen bulbs.

Advantages of LED lighting

LED emergency lights are incredibly bright!
  • Energy efficiency- they use 50% less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen bulbs, yet put out an amazingly bright beam. 

  • Long life of bulbs; LEDs last 30,000–50,000 hours or longer.

  • Cold temperature operation- LEDs perform well even in cold weather; they also emit much less heat than traditional lights.

  • Durability- LEDs are breakage resistant and withstand vibration and other impacts. 

Cheaper to use, long-lasting, cool to the touch and able to tolerate more abuse, LEDs make the perfect lighting option for your survival tool kit.

When it comes to new purchases, though, I have heartily embraced the LED lighting technology whenever I buy new flashlights, lanterns and vehicle lighting.

And so, apparently, has Maglite. Most of their new flashlights sport LED bulbs.

Once you get used to wearing one of these LED headlamps, you'll wonder how you ever did without them! We love them and have several scattered among our house, camper, truck and houseboat.

They work great at night when you need your hands free for activities such as camping, fishing, working, jogging or walking the dog. Great for reading in bed while others sleep!
