Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Floods. Power outages. The cable or satellite TV goes out. You left a power cable at the office. You could suddenly find yourself without access to the gadgets you thought you couldn't live without – and now know you can't.

Okay, one more "duh" product. But the flashlights made by Surefire aren't your normal, everyday flashlights. They are favored by law enforcement types, and used by more SWAT teams and military special forces than any other brand. This 6PX Pro anodized aluminum $80 LED model blasts out a wide blinding 200 lumen beam of light – I have a couple of older Surefire models that shoot 60 lumen, and I thought THOSE were bright. Talk about being blinded by the light.
