Hurricane Ida has left thousands without power, tap water or gasoline in its destructive wake.
Unfortunately, extreme weather conditions are becoming more common, meaning receiving information if you lose power, internet or phone service is even more important, particularly if you’re being told to shelter or move somewhere safe.
Woot’s latest sale on emergency preparedness gear could offer you a literal lifeline. Each item here — two radios and an emergency LED blackout flashlight — is up to 53% off, today only. Which is nice, but for an emergency, you should know why you’re buying something, not that you’re just getting a deal. So let’s break this down:
Eton FRX3+ Weather Radio
This rechargeable weather alert radio comes with both a solar panel and hand turbine power generator so you won’t need power to get important information (or you can use batteries). Plus, if the “Alert” function is on, the radio will automatically broadcast emergency weather alerts. You can also use the FRX3+ as a speaker for your own music, as a traditional radio or even as a charger for your phone. Plus, it doubles as a flashlight and red light beacon. Note: The price below is for a two-pack.
Eton NELITEEXECUTIVE Elite
This all-in-one radio receives receives every radio wavelength—AM(MW), FM with RDS, LW & Shortwave (SW), as well as VHF aircraft band & Single Sideband (SSB) — pretty much anywhere, with automatic or manual digital tuning. It also features a rich orange LCD. Battery-powered (or plug it in), the Elite also comes with a handsome leather carrying case. You’ll need this to get a radio signal in even the most remote of areas.
American Red Cross ARCBB202C-SNG Blackout Buddy
We love this three-pack of colorful, motion-sensor nightlights that you can unplug and use as an emergency LED flashlight. Buddy, indeed.
The sale at Woot ends Wednesday night at 11:59pm EST. And, SCORE, it’s free standard shipping for Prime members.
