5 Reasons Why Your House Needs a Portable Lamp
Every homeowner should consider a portable lamp a part of his emergency kit at home. Besides increasing productivity and efficiency in various cases, a portable lamp also has the ability to save lives in times of power failure.
Lighting for Inaccessible Areas
A portable lamp gives you light in places that are often dark and unoccupied. Think beyond attics and basements. What about the insides of your chimney or the piping system under your sink? These places are rarely equipped with lighting but you'll need light if there's repair to be done. A flashlight could work but in some ways, the size of their lights is insufficient. With portable lamps, you can hang them somewhere and have both hands free to do the work.
Additional Functional Lighting
Portable lamps are also great to use if you require additional functional lighting. Let's say you have a desktop lamp to help you study at night. But what if it can only light up half of your desk? What if you're working on a huge project that occupies your entire table? Wouldn't it be tiring to move your desktop lamp back and forth just to check out your project?
With a portable lamp, you can easily provide additional lighting whenever and wherever it's needed. In this case, you could take it out from the kitchen and into the study room then back again when you're done with your project.
If you are planning to camp overnight, you can charge your portable lamp at home then have it serve as emergency or backup lighting when you reach your campsite. Because they're battery powered and don't run on wired electricity, you won't have any problems using them in all kinds of weather. More importantly, they are not like candles and wouldn't require supervision in the event that they accidentally burn something down.
Compared to candles and even incandescent bulbs, portable lamps are certainly more environmentally friendly. They are not made from scarce resources and they operate with a higher rate of energy efficiency compared to other lighting sources.
Finally, a portable lamp is designed to serve as an emergency light. Many models, such as candela lights, are even designed to automatically light up when they are connected to their charging unit and the household suffers from an unexpected blowout.
With portable lamps automatically switching on, there are fewer chances of someone accidentally tripping over something, falling down the stairs, or hurting themselves in other ways.
