Forget about relying on the hotel’s wake-up call – you might want to settle for the $39. 99 Travel Alarm Clock with Dual LED Flashlight instead. As its name suggests, the Travel Alarm Clock with Dual LED Flashlight will not only be able to help you get out of bed with its incessant ringing, it is also a useful tool to have by the bedside in the middle of the night when you need to light up... Say that you are looking for pair of slippers, instead of turning on the bedroom lights and disturbing your other half, you can always use the dual LED flashlight on this device. It features telling you the current time, day, date and temperature, comes with an easy-to-set alarm with snooze function and has a subtle blue backlight and built-in LED flashlight.
The bushcraft-DIY alternatives — a flaming torch and a charged floating needle — have their place on survival TV shows, but you wouldn’t want to count on ’em. But wouldn’t it be nice if the flashlight was more than a flashlight. That’s the Fogo , and it’s more than just a smart flashlight, a GPS, and a charger. In fact, you have to see it to believe it. The features list on this thing is long and well thought-out, but the main feature is the 1,000-lumen LED flashlight. It has four main modes (high, medium, low, and strobe) as well as an adaptive lighting setting to focus and adjust the beam for speed and distance, which works well with the bicycle computer functions – more on that later. It runs on two 3,500mAh batteries, and comes with a power management setting that lets the Fogo stretch the battery the length of your trip. Tell it how long you think you’ll be out on your adventure and the Fogo will adjust the brightness and electronics settings to make sure you have enough juice to last. Of course, if you decide you’d like to minimize your carry weight – that’s the point of a combo device like the Fogo, isn’t it. – you can plug it into something else (like a camp stove that turns firewood into electricity ) and charge it up. Or,...
If you're like me, your phone or tablet is probably the first thing you look at in the morning and the last thing you look at before bed. All this screen time may be eating away at our sleep. Studies have shown that being exposed to the blue-and-white light given off by phones, laptops, and other electronic gadgets at night prevents our brains from releasing melatonin, a hormone that tells our bodies it's nighttime. And many years of delaying sleep, researchers think , can mess with our internal body clocks. I decided to go one step further and avoid looking at any screens from the time I left work until the time I went to bed every night from Monday to Friday. Lesson 1: Avoiding screens is hard This experiment was meant to be about sleep quality , but it was mostly an exercise in self-restraint. It's my lifeline to friends and family, my navigation system in New York City, my portal to email and social media, and my alarm clock. I was most worried about being able to contact my significant other and my family, but I told them ahead of time about my experiment and asked them to call me (I decided to allow myself to answer phone calls or make them using Siri).
