Unlike a flashlight or lantern, this 60w bulb can light a room! The light is warm, not the cold blue of emergency lights. It is rechargeable, has a portable attachment, or you can just screw it into a lamp at home and, if the power goes out, it lights up (if the switch on the lamp is turned on). Great gift idea!

Power Outages Come with Safety Risks

Power outages happen for a number of reasons.

Wind, rain, ice—you name it, it’s probably caused an outage.

In fact, 11% of all outages are caused by squirrels.

We all know that unsettling feeling of getting up in the middle of the night just to discover the lights have gone out.

Without lighting, areas like bathrooms and stairwells become dangerous to navigate.

For older adults, they present a fall risk turning small slips into
fatal events.

To compensate, homeowners reach for alternatives such as candles and flashlights. But candles account for 8,200 house fires each year and emit only a fraction of a lamp’s light.

And flashlights only emit a single focused beam and routinely fall victim to battery acid corrosion.

When your lights go out, you need an emergency backup light that safely illuminates the whole room - sometimes for hours.

That’s where the Surge Emergency Backup Light comes in…

The Rechargeable Light Bulb That Comes On When the Lights Go Out

The Surge Emergency Backup Light uses smart technology to light your home during an outage. With these bulbs, you’ll discover what you’ve been missing in disaster readiness lighting.

Here are the major benefits…

  • Smart bulb technology - The Surge Emergency Backup Light is made with EBULB technology that detects when the power has gone out and turns on automatically without electricity.
  • Rechargeable battery - The built-in lithium-ion battery charges over a six-hour period while the bulb is screwed into the light socket and stops once full.
  • Bright lighting - The Surge Emergency Backup Light provides as much light as a regular 60-watt LED soft light lightbulb. Use it for both regular and emergency use.
  • Energy Efficient - Uses 80% less energy than the average incandescent light bulb.
  • Take-anywhere base - You can use this light anywhere in your home with the included base. Hang it from a fixture or carry it in your hand like a flashlight. The base has a button to turn the unit on and off.

How It Works?

Emergency lightbulbs provide vital time in a well-lit environment to gather your supplies when a natural disaster takes out your power.

The steps to get started are simple...

I added these in 6 lamps around my house so all rooms would have light. I sent the other 2 to my parents for their bedroom lamps. They work great!

We know quality and affordability are important to you. We are the direct manufacture, that means no markups and you get direct service.

Do I need to charge the lightbulb first?

The Surge Emergency Backup Light may work when you remove them from the package but it’s best to charge them for the full six hours before using them as backup lighting. They work immediately when screwed into a socket.

Where can I use the Surge Emergency Backup Light?

The EBULB technology works best in a light socket controlled by a single-pole light switch. One light, one switch. This means they will not function properly in multi-unit switches and dimmers such as ceiling fans, or single lights controlled by two switches.

Do these lights remain on when the switch is flipped ‘off’ or if there is an outage?

The Surge Emergency Backup Light uses smart technology to detect when the power has gone out due to an outage. So when they are plugged into the appropriate power socket and the switch is turned to ‘off’, they will not power on unless there is an outage.

How long does the Surge Emergency Backup Light last?

LED lights have a lifespan of 25,000 hours. A fully charged EBULB by Surge will give you up to 6 hours of light during an outage.
