When SHTF, you must be prepared, starting from the basics and moving up to the crucial elements. Having durable and high-quality floodlights is not a minor concern. Light, when things get desperate is very important both practically and also psychologically. When it gets dark you will need to have the lights on if you want to engage in any activity and we know how important preparation is even during those winter months when it gets dark early outside. It is also useful for the psychological aspect – the way that we have been accustomed to having lights on from the moment it gets dark up to when we sleep makes it very difficult to adjust to a lifestyle where you can function only during the day. There is also the matter of security because sometimes you want to be sure that your BOL is safe at all times from intruders or other animals.
