It is very important to prepare your home with some of the best lightings and survival tools for emergency use. LED lanterns are far better than any kind of lanterns. They can provide brighter light at much lower energy cost. LED bulbs also will burn for years longer than normal light bulbs that used in electic lanterns. They are mostly powered by AA batteries so that you don't have to stock gas just like propane lanterns. LED lanterns are more durable as they contain no glass casing or a filament that other lanterns have.
