Last weekend marked Jai’s birthday – and it also marked a huge storm on the Oregon coast with 100 mph winds. We lost power a couple of times during the week, and a family birthday get-together was canceled because the weather was so bad. So when I gave him my gifts, I thought to myself that I couldn’t have planned a more appropriate item than this: A flashlight!
The 3310PL LED Photoluminescent Flashlight by Pelican Products was specifically designed with these type of situations in mind. Aside from its high, low, and flashing modes, this flashlight also has a long run time that is suitable for extended power outages – 202 hours on low. It’s also waterproof, which is very helpful in an Oregon coast rainstorm! But the most unique feature is the fact that this flashlight also glows in the dark, with the idea that it will be easier to find when you’re fumbling in the dark after an outage. It comes with batteries pre-installed in the flashlight, so it’s ready to use the minute you open it.
Jai likes all manner of gadgets and gizmos, and he really loved the Pelcian laptop backpack that I gave him for Christmas, so I knew this was a good little item to include with his gifts – and it couldn’t have been more timely!
