Have you been burned by the power going out in the middle of the night and screwing up your alarm clock?  Yeah, most alarm clocks have a battery backup, but in my experience it’s always dead when you need it.  Plug the PowerOUT! from Reliance Controls into a spare outlet and when the power fails you’ll know it by the 86dB alarm and bright safety light.

Once it’s warned you of power failure you can unplug the PowerOUT!, slide the switch to silence the alarm, and use its three ultra-bright LEDs as an emergency flashlight.  The built-in NiMH rechargeable battery will provide eight hours of light.

Not terribly excited by being woken up from a dead sleep in a blackout?  You can still use the PowerOUT! as a night light and emergency flashlight without the alarm.

You can purchase the PowerOUT! for around $15.

    Just what I need to go off in the middle of the night and scare the hell out of everyone in the house.

  2. Joe says:

    I live in the sticks. The power goes out all of the time. I’d be deaf if I owned one of these!

  3. Coach James says:

    I see the purpose of the light, but why do I need an alarm to go off if the power goes out? If I’m awake, I’ll already know because the TV, radio, lights etc will go out and if I’m asleep, why would I care if the power goes out?

  4. Coach James:

    Maybe you need to get up and set the alarm on your phone, PDA, watch, etc. because you have to get up in the morning and the last 5 times the power went out the backup battery in your alarm clock was dead even thought you keep changing the battery.

    Not that I’m bitter about it happening to me multiple times.

  5. Coach James says:

    Ben, I got tired of exactly what you describe so I went to using a windup alarm as well as my electric alarm clock.

    What’s an alarm clock?

  7. Flo Friender says:

    I sleep with a C-Pap machine due to sleep apnea and if the power goes off, as it did this week for 4 hours, if I am soundly asleep, I won’t wake up as I’ll be breathing dead air and will asphyxiate! So this is EXACTLY what I need to stay alive! Fortunately this week when the power went off, I was sleeping very lightly and woke up, realized I was breathing dead air due to a power outage and pulled off the machine.
