expiredPhilips 60 Watt Equivalent SlimStyle Dimmable A19 LED Light Bulb in Daylight for just $2.97 (add-on, limit 3)

Amazon offers the Philips 60 Watt Equivalent SlimStyle Dimmable A19 LED Light Bulb in Daylight for just $2.97 as an add-on item. That’s about half the price we normally see it and tied with the best price we’ve ever seen on a top tier LED bulb. These always go quick but if you jump in early, you’ll easily save the $3 in electricity cost within the first of its rated 22+ years of life. I like this because it is dimmable and “provides a natural light similar to daylight”. Features:

  • This Philips 60 Watt equivalent consumes 10.5 watts of energy, saving you up to $136.13 in energy costs
  • Sleek, flat design is ideal for use in wall sconces, table and floor lamps, open pendant or ceiling fixtures
  • Extra long lifetime of 22.8 years – reduces the hassle of frequent replacement
  • Safe for the environment and your home – durable design and mercury-free
  • Dimmable and provides a natural light similar to daylight

Note: Add on items require spending up to $25 on a purchase. You can get some of the way there buy snagging the limit of 3. Throw in a swing arm desklamp to get yourself the rest of the way.

I’ve been using the Eton Scorpion II Model NSP101WXGR Rugged for over a month now. Eton specializes in making durable emergency weather radios and this is their new “everything portable model”. In the small package, it contains:

  • A STRONG.5W LED flashlight. Lots of USB batteries contain LED flashlights now. This one is brighter than all of the others’ put together. It is a real flashlight as opposed to a pen/key light.
  • Receives AM/FM/NOAA Weatherband radio. The radio is great with the antenna pulled out pulling in many stations. I don’t like the design of the buttons (would almost be impossible to navigate in the dark) and the speaker isn’t great. Overall a win though because you are trying not to die not hear the “midtones and lows”.
  • The digital Tuner also has a clock which turns on any time you hit a button.
  • It is super small, portable and rugged with a cool green tone design. I love the design and it is totally droppable and water resistant.
  • 5V 1A USB output charges smartphones with a 800 mAh lithium battery. This isn’t huge but will give you a few hours in a crunch. Even more impressive, there are 3 ways to charge the battery: hand crank, Solar and MicroUSB. The solar isn’t going to keep your iPhone charged, but it will keep the device ready for when you need it in a window. The hand crank will charge your phone. Like a fishing reel, about 20 cranks will add a bar of battery to the device. I think you could probably operate the emergency radio on solar alone. 
  • Bottle opener – because just because the lights are out doesn’t mean you should stop the party.

So I see two use cases for this device. One is an emergency device that you keep at home in a window solar charged for when your power goes out. That’s where I used it.

However, with the carabiner and the ruggedness, I think i this is geared toward campers and cars where it can clip to your backpack and provide you with lights, radio and extra power (bottle opener) when you need it.

At $50, it seems like a very worthy investment for me. expand full story

expiredMpow Solar-Powerd Wireless LED Security Motion Sensor Light: $11 Prime shipped ($19 off)

Amazon offers the MPow Solar-Powerd Wireless LED Security Motion Sensor Light for $12.99. Coupon code EN7GWEJB drops it down to $10.99 Prime shipped.

This is a security light that you can screw in any south/east/west-facing wall or post that will charge a battery all day and emit a light when activated by motion sensors at night. No wiring is needed and one screw is included (but another can be added for added strength). Motion sensor works at around 10 feet and it is weatherproof.

Note an 8 LED version is available for $15.99 but the coupon code won’t work.
