Gadgets: One Cool Light! 1

One of the things we like the most about doing this blog and the podcast is hearing from you and receiving your tips.

Sometimes, it’s about how to do things better while on the road, or maybe a helpful do-it-yourself project.

Or it could be a nifty product you came across that you want to share with the audience.

So it was today with a listener named Ed Richards, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

“I stumbled across something today I wanted to share with you guys and see if you wanted to share it with the podcast listeners,” Ed says.

Of course we do!

It’s a super handy device called a Bem Multi Function Lantern EXO-900, a 300-lumen lantern with three different power levels. It has a Bluetooth speaker and can even be used to recharge mobile phones.

Ed was lucky enough to find his for $30 at his local Sams Club. That seems like a good deal because (at the time of this posting) on Amazon, they cost $75.
