The power is out, are you prepared? If you've ever been stuck in the dark, unprepared, you know how much of a pain it can be to get some light going. Eton's Voice Link Radio takes out all of fumbling, worrying about charging your cell phone, and what you'll do while you are stuck in the dark.
While it's geared for use on the road, we think it would make a pretty handy emergency kit, and it looks more substantial than its competitors. It's got it all, light, radio and weather announcements, a digital clock, spot to charge your cell, and a hand crank for when you've run out of juice. And, be sure to toss it into the car when you're heading out on long road trips this winter. It's available at Restoration Hardware for $150.
