Read in Browser
 

June 23, 2022

One thing is true no matter where you live right now: gas is expensive. Everywhere you look on social media, people are posting pictures and horror stories of the latest tank fill-up and how much it cost. That is people who own regular cars and trucks—if you own an EV, you don’t have to pump gas anymore.

But that doesn’t mean you don’t spend money on “refueling” your vehicle! And oddly, the price of electricity is somewhat tied to the cost of gas. So as gas prices soar, we had to wonder—is recharging an EV actually less expensive than filling up a tank of gas? Check out the top story for more details.

These Night Lights Work in a Power Outage and Double as a Flashlight

Plug-in night lights are great to have around the house or down some stairs, but these 4-in-1 night lights kick things up a notch. With GE’s power failure LED night lights, you can walk around safely at night and be more prepared during a power outage.

Like many other plug-in night lights, these will automatically turn on/off at sundown thanks to a light sensor, but they’ll also turn on when the power goes out or can double as a flashlight. That’s because each one packs three AAA batteries inside. I don’t know about you, but this is an impulse buy I won’t regret.
