Using Battery Powered Lighting for Emergencies Instead of a Generator Can Save Homeowners $1,000s

After Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee battered the eastern United States, millions of people were left without electricity, some for up to a week. Consequently, many homeowners rushed to hardware stores and big box stores to purchase an expensive generator just to keep the lights running in their homes.

According to Datexx President Mei Noguchi, generators are good for powering a refrigerator or furnace, but are much too expensive and inconvenient to use for emergency lighting. “Our Sentina line of affordable plug-in, rechargeable or battery-powered LED lighting solutions can ensure days of light for your family and your home,” Noguchi said. “Why spend thousands of dollars on a generator when you can outfit your home with Sentina LED lighting for less than $100?”

Available at, the Sentina LED-92M four-way emergency light is just that: four lights in one unit for only $35. Fully charged to support motion, darkness, and power outage sensors, the Sentina LED-92M light simply plugs into a wall socket and performs for pennies per day. The light activates only when approached, in darkness, or in a power outage. At all other times the light remains off. When disconnected from the socket, the light will also perform as an emergency flash light for up to eight hours.

Available for immediate purchase for only $18, Datexx’s waterproof Sentina uLite LED-76 with a magnetic base delivers 100 Lumens of hands-free lighting wherever it is needed. With two settings, one that projects forward and one that shines red as an emergency warning light, the Sentina uLite LED-76 is perfect for use in the home or as an emergency flashlight. Because it is waterproof, the uLITE LED-76 can be used in any situation, such as a flooded basement. The magnetic base makes it easy for users to do repair work without having to hold a flashlight.

Available for immediate purchase for just $22, Datexx’s motion-sensitive Sentina uLite LED-90 is a double winner: it can act as a super-bright emergency flashlight while serving as an everyday nightlight. Because it is right where you need it, when you need it, the uLite LED-90 is an ideal flashlight for emergency situations such as a power outage. With a convenient detachable cradle that can be placed anywhere with peel-and-stick adhesive, owners of this remarkable flashlight never have to be stuck in darkness again. Owners can just grab-and-go with the confidence of a long-lasting heavy-duty 120 Lumen flashlight.

It’s perfect for lighting up garages, closets, sheds, stairways, hallways and any other unlit locations around the house, and it features a Smart Sensor that automatically turns on when it detects motion and turns off 20 seconds after motion is no longer detected. With its energy saving features, the uLite LED-90 can last up to one year on three AAA batteries (not included).
