Be Prepared For Power Outages With The #MotionSensorLightPro

Do you live in an area that is prone to severe weather? Are you prepared for an emergency? Do you have the supplies to get through an extended power outaged? These are things we don't really like to think about, but they are a reality that we should take the time to plan for and make sure we have useful tools ready.
We live in an area where tornadoes are a fairly regular threat. Even when not threatened by tornadoes, we sometimes have severe thunderstorms. During many of these events, we are left without power. Sometimes it is for a couple hours and has been as long as two weeks. For those times when we know it will be a relatively short suration, it's imperative to have lanterns and battery powered lights ready. 
I was recently sent the Motion Sensor Light Pro to review and it is a unique, rechargeable LED light. It can be used as a regular light while plugged in. The bendable neck allows you to direct the light where you need it it so when used on a power strip, it can be helpful for lighting areas when you are doing repairs, working on a car or any number of tasks.

For using as a portable light, it does need an initial charge of twelve hours. Once charged though, you can unplug it and use the included clip on the metal prongs. This completes the circut, allowing the light to work. This is the one thing about this light that I think could be improved. Little clips like this are so easily lost and in an emergency when time is of the essence, you might not be able to find something to take it's place. I would have liked to have seen the circut completed by flipping the prongs into the base where they could complete the circut inside. I will be attaching the clip with a string or something so it remains with the light.
Now a really cool thing about this is if by chance you don't have the clip handy, you can unscrew the bulb and by holding it in a cupped hand with your finger on the sides, you complete the circut and the bulb will light! 


Despite the clip , this is a neat and useful light. We can pretty much count on losing power at least once during the winter and when Spring rolls back around, we are back into our thunderstorm/tornado season, so I already know we'll be using this light. The MSLPro LED light is a handy addition to your emergency supplies, the tool kit or even just to keep handy in house. You can find these over at Amazon.
