To plan for an emergency, you need to prioritize. What do you need if the power goes out? Well, a flashlight, obviously. What next? Oh Jesus, well I can't miss The Wire, so TV, definitely TV. Thankfully the lifesavers at Vector have combined the two most important items you need during an emergency into one TV/flashlight superdevice.
The whole thing can be juiced via crank if you run out of batteries in the middle of a Mary Tyler Moore marathon, and it also has boring stuff like AM/FM radio with auto storm alert. Only $40 for the peace of mind that comes with knowing you'll never miss your shows, no matter what happens. You hear that, terrorists? No matter what.
