Now here’s a gadget that belongs in the glovebox of every car–especially those belonging to teenagers! The Life Gear Personal Safety Device, while possessed of a somewhat ambiguous title, is here to serve one unambiguous purpose: keeping you safe in an emergency.
According to Coolest Gadgets, the Life Gear Device is many tools in one: a super-bright LED flashlight, an emergency radio, a back-up cell-phone charger, a signal flasher, a directional compass, and even a 130 decibel siren (!) Best of all, it can be powered by 3 alkaline batteries, a DC inlet (with an optional car and/or wall adapter) or good old fashioned elbow grease, via a hand-cranked kinetic energy charger.
Of course, this gadget could come in equally handy at home, should the disaster strike–or out on the trail, should you find yourself stranded. Luckily, the price of the Life Gear Device is attractive enough to justify purchasing more than one: $24.95, from the Life Gear Company.
