Brighten the Darkness - BYB Ultra Bright CREE XML T6 LED Flashlight - Five Modes & Zoomable



I remember this one night back in 1992 when we were woken by the biggest earthquake I had ever been in - the Homestead Earthquake.  What really woke me up was really not the quake per se, but it really was the bed.  It was being pushed back about a foot from the wall, then it jumped up in the air about a foot up in the air, then slamming back into the wall.  This just didn't happen once or twice, but just kept happening for what seemed like forever.  Once the quake was over, it was time to get out of the house.  I grabbed the baby and the toddler, while my husband rushed to the kids room to grab the three girls.  Once we got into the kitchen area, it was dark in there.  I kept stumbling over things that had fallen out of the cupboards as I just could see very well.  How my husband and I both wished we had a good flashlight for this emergency.

Recently, I received a great flashlight from BYB to review.  It's the BYB Super Bright CREE XML T6 LED Flashlight.  How I wish that we had this flashlight during that early morning earthquake all those years ago.  This super bright flashlight would have worked perfectly to help us all get out of the house safely.


This is one super bright flashlight!  It will brighten the darkness when you need light.  There are actually five modes to this flashlight.  There are three settings of brightness plus a strobe and a SOS mode.  To generally light my way, I like to keep this on the low mode as the battery will last longer.  If I need to really see something at night, I will put this on the highest brightness.  That high brightness really lights up the night like it was daylight.  I don't really know how far the beam will shine, but when we put it on the highest setting, we can see our gate very well at about 300 feet away.

The two special modes, the strobe light and the SOS signal, are great for emergencies.  The strobe light is an effective tool in keeping attackers at bay.  It is the brightest mode flashing, and if someone gets this in the eyes, which I unfortunately did, it does hurt the eyes.  As for the SOS mode, if you need help, this flashlight will be able to signal someone with its true SOS signal in international Morse code.


Another neat thing about this flashlight is that you can zoom it.  It can be a super wide beam, or you can concentrate it into a square of light.  It's pretty cool because once you put it on this spotlight, it's very bright!  To go from floodlight to zoom, just pull out the head of the flashlight.  It slides out super easy.


The flashlight is only 5.5 inches long and really easy to hold onto.  It is water resistant, so you can take it out in the rain with you if you need to (just don't submerge it in water).  The switch is at the bottom.  Just click it to get it on.  To get to the special modes, just tap the button while the flashlight is on.


One thing you are not going to have to worry about with this flashlight is batteries.  Isn't a nuisance to have to always get batteries for a flashlight?  With the BYB Super Bright CREE XML T6 LED Flashlight all you need to do is recharge the battery that it comes with.  The charging unit is included which really helps.

There are three different types of batteries you can use with this flashlight.  It comes with a high capacity 26650 lithium-ion battery that provides long run time and easy recharging.  You also have the option of using two other batteries.  You could just use plain simple AAA batteries, and BYB has generously included a AAA battery holder if you need to use it.  Plus, if you have a 18650 rechargeable battery, BYB has included a sleeve to use one of these batteries.



The BYB Super Bright CREE XML T6 LED Flashlight comes in a good sturdy box that is easy to wrap for gift giving.  I think getting someone you love a good flashlight is a wonderful gift idea.  Get this flashlight today at Amazon for a great deal.


We were so lucky that early morning in June of 1992 that we were all able to get outside the house with no injuries at all.  Once it got light, I went back in the house to get some things.  I was amazed at all the broken glass on the floor that we trod through.  What a miracle that no one cut a foot getting out while the house was still shaking with the after shocks.  Now we are prepared with an excellent flashlight that will brighten the darkness of our home during the next big earthquake - and one will come again.  Hey, I'm a California native - earthquakes are just a way of life.

#Giveaway - All Day Comfort In Lugz New Women's Zrocs - The Sporty Casual Oxford Sneaker - ends 4/11 US


My whole family just loves Lugz.  Their shoes are always full of comfort and look so good on the feet.  I recently received to review one of their newest shoes for women.  It's a sporty oxford sneaker that goes great with your casual wear - the Women's Zrocs.


This new women's sneaker's style was borrowed from the boys.  I just love this shoe!  It's so comfortable.  Sometimes I am envious of  certain men's styles, and Lugz knows that we girls want these types of styles, too.  That's why they designed this borrowed-from-the-boys just for women.


This style is just so awesome for us girls.  It has a metallic inset "L" on the side panels that adds to the hot looks of this shoe.  The white permahide upper is so chic.



For that all day comfort, these shoes have a cushioned insole, a padded tongue and collar.  You will also find padding all the way around your feet and ankles.  The Zrocs, as all of the Lugz that I have had a chance to review, are so comfy.


On the bottom, the soles grip well to any surface.  I love the distinctive look to the soles.  When I walk around the house, my husband just has to look at my prints in the desert sand to find where I went.


These new Women's Zrocs come in three different styles.  I got the Zrocs White with Yonder Blue highlights.  You'll also find Zrocs White with Mulberry highlights and Zrocs White with Raspberry highlights.   Plus, these sneakers are affordable!


When we go on day trips, I want my feet to be comfortable for that long day.  The Lugz Zrocs sporty casual oxford sneakers will be the comfortable good looking shoes on my feet!


Looking for casual or work shoes? Visit Lugz.com


With many thanks to Lugz, one person is going to win a pair of the new Women's Zrocs!  Winner's choice of color and size (based on availability).  This giveaway will end on April 11, 2016, and is open to US residents 18+ only.  Good Luck!



I rely upon your support, please 'Like' Royalegacy on Facebook. Thank you so much!

Dead Battery? Don't Get Stranded! Have the 1byOne 12V Smart Portable Emergency Car Jump Starter On Hand


My son always told me that I needed to make sure that I have a way to start my car just in case the battery should die on me.  He told me that the one item to have on hand is one of those new multi-function jump starters.  With this handy item, I'll never have to ask some shady character to jump start my car.  With many thanks to 1byone, I now have a portable 9000mAh 12V Smart Portable Emergency Car Jump Starter with me at all times for that 'just-in-case' emergency.

I am really happy to be able to review such handy item that is especially good to keep in the car.  I remember my first car, a 1967 Mercury Cougar.  I accidentally left the lights on, and after I got off work, my battery was dead.  One of the people I worked with was able to give me a jump, but this fellow was not someone I wanted to be alone with on a dark night.  Fortunately for me, I wasn't alone with him as someone else joined us to help out.  If there had been something like 1byone multi-function jump starter way back then, I would not have had to worry about getting someone shady to help me with my car.


This one nice kit has everything you need within its locking case to make sure you don't get stranded on the highway with a dead battery.  You have the large lithium battery pack that has a smart-chip technology.  There is the mini adapter assembly that is what you place onto the battery terminals.


It also comes with two units to charge the strong battery pack: the home plug-in adapter; and a cigarette outlet adapter so you can charge it in the car.


Here is the main charging unit.  It came to me already charged to 60% power.  I plugged it in here at home and it charged to 100% capacity within an hour.  If you don't use it, this charging unit will keep this charge for a full six months! This charging unit has a special smart-chip technology built in that can recharge redundant electricity back to host.  This guarantees continuous instant start.  Kept charged, and this unit can jump start your car 200 times in its lifetime.


Here are the instructions to jump start a 12v car battery.  first connect the red clamp to the vehicle's battery positive (+) terminal and then connect the black clamp to the vehicle's battery negative (-) terminal.  Don't worry about putting the cables on wrong, because if you do, an alarm will sound.  Now, plug the cord of the jumper cable into the jump start socket.  I have it plugged in above to show as an example.  Press the mini adapter assembly's switch which is on the left side of the unit.  Then just go into your car, and turn it on.  Once you get your car running, leave it running.  To take off the device from your car's battery, just take the items off in the reverse order.


What else will you find on the charging unit?  A USB port that will charge your mobile phones, Sony PSP, MP3/MP4 players, PDAs, notebooks, car refrigerators and other compatible appliances.  On the back of the charging unit is a flashlight.  If you need to jump your battery at night, this three LED flashlight will help you get everything connected.  Plus this ultra bright flashlight has 3 illumination modes: a flashlight when you're in the dark, a strobe light to attract attention, and most importantly, an SOS signal flash that will last up to 120 hours for when you're outdoors and in need of emergency help.


The 1byone Smart Jump Starter is a super hot new release that can start your vehicles numerous times on a single charge.  It's mistake-proof, making it safe for anyone to use and features spark-proof technology, as well as reverse polarity protection.  It's suitable for use on vehicles up to 5 liters, such as a car, boat, truck, RV, motorcycle, ATV, lawn mower and more.

Get this powerful jump starter at Amazon so that you will be able to safely jump start a dead battery in seconds. Supports fast charging. Low self-discharge.  Up to 1000 cycles. Be sure to pack this when you go camping, picnicking or go on any outdoor adventure.
