Essential piece


This is a great product. It's all-in-one features are terrific. It serves many functions, exceptionally useful in power outages, lighting a darkened room, and for whenever needing a flash light.

Highly recommended.

Saved us during power outage and more!


I plugged this in and forgot about it until we lost power. The light came on! What a great product and price!




This is a must-have for any household should never be without it


Very Pleased!


We had purchased a set of automatic night lights, and 2 stopped working within the first 2 weeks. The Eton sheds great light in our kitchen so that we can move about without turning on overhead lights. Thanks!More > < Less


Great for storm/emergency prep


24-hours after plugging in the Blackout Buddy, we experienced a power outage in the middle of the night. It worked like a charm! The LED light was bright, and made it unnecessary to fumble in the dark to locate a flashlight. Speaking of which, being able to unplug the Blackout Buddy, and use it like a flashlight is the proverbial icing on the cake. I will be buying more of these as gifts for family.More > < Less

About Eton

Crisis Management

The right tools are the key to staying safe during a storm or power outage. Eton’s arsenal of innovative safety gear makes a difference during difficult situations.

They’ve got over 25 years of experience designing emergency preparedness supplies, like the Blackout Buddy. It’s a combination emergency light source/flashlight/nightlight that plugs directly into an electrical socket, where it stays—and recharges itself—until you need it. If the power goes out, you can use the strong LED light as a flashlight for up to four hours.

Another favorite of ours from Eton is the rugged Scorpion II—a weather-resistant emergency radio, flashlight, and smartphone charging station in one. To keep you prepared, it powers up via solar panel, rechargeable battery, or hand crank. And an integrated carabiner lets you hang it up easily, too.

Durable enough to take with you on a camping trip, keep stashed in your car, or to simply have on-hand at home, you’ll be glad Eton’s devices are there when you need them.
