Rechargeable LED Bulb

This rechargeable LED bulb may function as a normal bulb most of the time, but it has extra features that’ll keep you feeling safe and secure even when power lines go down. These were created by a Chinese company called Magic Bulb that decided to show off their creation at IFA. These bulbs use all of 4 watts of power while shining as brightly as a 50W bulb. Within each bulb is a rechargeable battery that’ll keep the light running for up to 3 hours in the event of a power outage. If you need to run around and inspect the source of your power troubles these bulbs also have a handle that can be extended to turn the bulb into a flashlight. They’ll live for up to 20,000 hours. They’re hoping to sell these for $30-$40. That may seem like a lot for an ordinary light bulb, but you don’t really need to absolutely fill your home with these versatile bulbs.
