Remark A Bulb is an LED lightbulb that'll still work when your power is out. Each bulb contains 50 LED lights—enough to effectively illuminate a room of up to 400 square feet. These bulbs are each powered by a lithium ion battery that will keep them charged while your electricity's working, and they'll fit into any standard light fixture such as a table lamp or floor lamp. They can also be quickly converted into a flashlight.
The cost of Remark A Bulb is $12.99 plus $7.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Remark A Bulb at the discounted price of only $8.99 for a total price of $29.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buyremarkabulb.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Remark A Bulb and has taken down the website. Remark A Bulb may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
To start using one of these lightbulbs, you'll need to screw it into any standard light fixture in your home, just as you would a standard lightbulb. Keep in mind that the light fixture will need to be connected to some source of power in order to charge your bulb's battery and maintain the charge.
While your power's on, leave your Remark A Bulb as it is, and when the power's out, activate it with the included universal remote control. With the press of a button on this control, your bulb will light up as it normally does, even without electricity.
Each Remark A Bulb contains a lithium ion battery that will charge itself via the electricity flowing through whatever light source it's connected to while your power is working. If your power goes off, the battery will be fully charged, so it can be immediately activated with your remote control and will provide you with the same level of lighting your electricity usually would.
Some LED bulbs contain only one or just a few LED lights, but this particular one contains 50, so it'll offer you a whole lot of bright light instead of just a little. If you use one of these to light up an average-sized room while your power's off, it may give off so much light that you might not even miss your other lamps.
The Remark A Bulb is made of shatterproof material, so you'll be able to put it almost anywhere, including areas where kids might be horsing around, without worrying about it breaking.
If you happen to need a working flashlight, one of these bulbs can be quickly converted to one. All you'll need to do is pull on your bulb's base to convert it into a handle, then flick the switch located on one side of the bulb, and you'll have a completely portable flashlight.
You'll be able to obtain one of these lightbulbs on its own ( with a remote ), if that's all you need, but they also come in sets of two or four. With a set of four, you'll get an extra remote, too.
The Remark A Bulb can be safely used both indoors and outdoors, so you may want to hang one near one of your doors to give yourself some light when you come in at night. One could also come in handy on a pool deck or patio. Due to the shatterproof nature of this type of bulb, it's unlikely that heavy rain, snow or wind will put enough pressure on it to damage it in any way.
Since one of these lightbulbs won't need electricity to run, and each is also portable, this makes it an ideal item for you to bring along on a camping trip. Just remember to charge your bulb's battery, if you haven't already, by putting it in an electric light fixture for at least a day or two before your trip.
The Remark A Bulb actually promotes the conservation of electricity, since you can choose to power it through its battery at any time, even if electricity's available. If you do this for even a few hours a week, you might find that your electricity bills contain lower numbers when they arrive at your home ( or when you view them online ). For those users who lack a high number of electrical outlets in their homes, the option to power a lightbulb without electricity may be especially beneficial.
This lightbulb is manufactured by the same people who manufacture the Atomic Beam Lantern, a portable, bright LED lantern that's become quite popular. Therefore, if you try one of these lightbulbs out, you can rest assured that you're putting your faith in a company that has some experience with lighting.
There's a chance that one LED light within one of these bulbs ( out of 50 ) could burn out, and it could be difficult or impossible to replace that one light without replacing the entire bulb.
While the charged lithium ion battery within each bulb will likely last at least a few hours without being recharged, it won't last forever. In the event that you're without electricity for a couple or a few days, you may eventually have to stop using your Remark A Bulb, since you won't be able to charge it up again.
These lightbulbs only provide white light, which will meet most people's needs for illumination, but they could be more fun if the color of light could be changed. If one were to light up in red or green, this could create a festive mood at Christmas, and the same goes for orange on Halloween.
Most people look around for a standard flashlight when the power goes out, but often can't find the flashlight in the dark or realize that the batteries within are burnt out. If you decide to use the Remark A Bulb as a flashlight / alternative light source instead, you can keep it constantly charging by keeping it plugged into a lamp in your home. The lamp doesn't have to be on, either—as long as it's plugged in, it'll charge your bulb's lithium battery.
Standard lightbulbs are just as portable and will screw into a light fixture just as quickly as this LED bulb, but most aren't shatterproof and become non-functional when the power's out. Furthermore, you won't be able to pull an ordinary light fixture out of a lamp and convert it into a flashlight. If you were to try, you'd likely burn your fingers.
Candles can provide illumination within a home while the eletricity's off, but these are probably the most unsafe things you can use to illuminate a room. If someone were to walk by one without being super-careful, they could end up with a burning sleeve or even burning skin.
