It's dark out there. Whether you're camping, hiking or just making sure you're prepared for a roadside accident, it's a great idea to have a lantern for late nights outdoors. I like combo lanterns that do double duty as flashlights, and here's an affordable option for a wide range of lighting needs. This portable light usually sells for $30, but you can get it for half price. Now through Thursday, May 13, you can get the Polentat Portable Emergency Light for $15 when you apply promo code YTXFQKV7 at checkout. 

This light won't be seen from space, but it's plenty bright enough for most uses -- it can be seen up to about 240 meters. It works as a lantern with a full 360-degree illumination or as a flashlight. You get high- and low-power lights in both of those modes, along with a red warning light and red strobe, both handy for roadside warning lights if you have an auto accident. It can be carried or hung from a two-way hook. 

In addition to serving as a multipurpose light, it has a 4,000-mAh battery for emergency device charging and is IPX4 waterproof, so it can withstand the elements. It's also small and lightweight -- 6 inches long, 3 inches in diameter and less than 11 ounces. You should be able to stow it pretty much anywhere. For $15, the Polentat lantern is a good insurance policy to keep in the car or take on your next outdoor trip.
