It’s that time of year when the air starts to have a bite to it, leaves begin to fall, and sweaters start coming out. As you prepare for Fall weather, be sure to take these steps to ensure your flashlights and portable lighting products are at the ready!
Change Batteries: Chances are you’ve had the same batteries in your flashlight all summer, or maybe even longer. Even when your flashlights aren’t on, batteries can slowly drain. Change out the batteries now, especially as the cold sets in. A fresh set will guarantee you have light when you need it, especially as the days get shorter. For those that might be looking for a special battery type, or for those who like to stock up, check out this trusted distributor of Duracell batteries.
Check or Change Bulbs: While most of the latest flashlights are made with LED’s, which have extensive shelf life, some flashlight owners may still have a light or two that run on a traditional incandescent bulb. Be sure to check these lights to make sure they still operate properly, and replace bulbs if necessary.
Go Green: It can be annoying to change batteries every so often, so why not look for a solution that lasts? Our partners over at Born Global LLC have some great deals right now on rechargeable lights that perform a variety of functions. From products that charge via solar panel, to options that can charge your cell phone, or even charge in your car’s 12 volt port, there is something for everyone.
Stock Up: It may seem odd now, but as it’s been said before…
and before you know it…
Don’t get caught unprepared in an emergency! Making sure you have the best products in your house or car will mean that if the power goes out, you’re not stuck in the dark. Don’t be like John Snow and his friends in the medieval period, who had to rely on the sun and moon for their only light source! Grab a few Garrity Touch N’ Lites to keep your rooms bright and cheery, even when it’s dark and dreary!
We hope these tips help you prepare for the shorter days and colder weather. Do you have any tried and true strategies for upping your cold weather game? Let us know in the comments!
