Using candles to light a house during a power outage is extremely common. Most people have some sort of candle lying around their home, making it a fast and easy solution when it comes to seeing your way through the darkness. 

Depending on the size of the candle, it will provide you with light for anywhere from 7 to 40 or more hours. The downside is that it may have been months or even years since you last used these candles, which could put you at risk of injury trying to find them once the power goes out.  


Battery-powered flashlights are another big source of light when there is no electricity. However, much like candles, you may not always know where your high-powered flashlight is when the power suddenly goes out in your home, leaving you blind until you are able to feel one out in the dark.

On average, a flashlight battery will last for two to 50 hours depending on the brightness and size of the flashlight. Both candles and flashlights can offer a highly sufficient amount of light, especially if you have multiple units, but there is still the issue of finding the items in the dark. Luckily, OWL Power solutions provides you with that peace of mind that comes with always being prepared.
