What’s the bright idea? Four of these for a bit over $5 per, that’s what! (Photo: Amazon)

This just in, from Captain Obvious: We all need electricity to get through the day. However, between emergencies, neighborhood power outages and that one light in your basement that never seems to work, you never know when you’ll be find yourself powerless, as it were. So, you best have a backup light source at the ready. And sure, you could rely on dinky little flashlights with anemic power supplies and short lifespans, but why not aim for something smarter and brighter, like LED-powered lanterns?

Specifically, like a four-pack of Etekcity LED Camping Lanterns, now on sale for just $21 with an on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s nearly a 30 percent savings, which breaks down to around $5 per lantern. How’s that for enlightening!

Each compact and lightweight Etekcity lantern is designed with a 360-degree illumination and made with military-grade plastic for durability and longevity and uses energy-saving 60-lumen LED bulbs that burn longer and brighter than traditional flashlights. In fact, just one of these can light up a space for up to 12 hours with just three AA batteries. Good luck trying to get 12 continuous hours from a standard flashlight! They’re ideal for a survival kit, during and after a hurricane or random power outages and blackouts, and, of course, camping. The four-pack comes with 30 individual LED bulbs and 12 AA batteries.

“I’ve had other lanterns before, especially as we live in a hurricane-prone area and, for safety reasons, I prefer not to use hurricane lanterns and candles.” wrote one of over 16,000 five-star reviewers. “Since [these] arrived, we’ve had multiple power outages…and they’re great! Super bright when fully opened, and I love that they are adjustable to just a sliver for when only a little light bit is needed. They are very lightweight and illuminate a larger area than I’d anticipated, even outside, where they’ve been used in place of outdoor lights that need to be fixed. So far, I’m very glad we found these lanterns!”

Another delighted shopper added, “Great lanterns! I was given these as a gift from someone who was in my office when we lost power…. We have one in each room now, in case it happens again. I liked them so much I also got them for home. They are very bright. Small enough to transport or leave out in the open.”
