Etón Corporation (www.etoncorp.com), a leading creator of high-performance, eco-minded consumer products, announces the Blackout Buddy CO, a 2014 CES Innovations Award Honoree in the Health and Fitness category. A one-of-a-kind combination carbon monoxide detector, flashlight and nightlight, the Blackout Buddy CO works around the clock to detect harmful CO levels in the air, while also shedding light in your home. The Blackout Buddy CO will make its debut at CES 2014 at Etón’s booth, #31247, in South Hall 3.
The Blackout Buddy CO builds upon the qualities of its predecessor, the Etón Blackout Buddy, incorporating features to keep users informed and safe at home. UL certified, the Blackout Buddy CO constantly monitors a home for carbon monoxide; when detected, this small but mighty device sounds an 85dB alarm and flashes a warning light to alert homeowners that levels of the harmful gas are too high. The alarm speaker is prominently placed on the front of the unit to maximize the reach of the audio alarm.
A rechargeable lithium battery ensures that the Blackout Buddy CO keeps working even during a power outage. The light automatically turns on when the power goes out, and it will provide seven days of carbon monoxide off of a full charge, ensuring families remain protected in the event of excess levels of CO gas when the power is out.
Featuring a slim and sleek design, the Blackout Buddy CO is fashioned to fit snug against the wall when plugged in to a lower wall outlet, the ideal location for detecting CO gasses, protecting homeowners without sacrificing aesthetics.
Carbon monoxide detection isn’t the Blackout Buddy CO’s only feature – the device also boasts a foldable plug that allows the device to turn into a flashlight to help shed light when you need it the most, and an LED nightlight. The combination of life-saving features and innovative design are two of the reasons that long-standing Etón partners the American Red Cross and Canadian Red Cross have partnered with Etón on the new Blackout Buddy CO.
“We are proud that the Blackout Buddy CO not only helps to avert homes from disasters that can result from an excess of toxic carbon monoxide, but that its multi-functional capabilities can provide aide in a multitude of situations, from detection of CO gas to power outages,” says Esmail Hozour of Etón Corporation. “It is an honor to be named a 2014 CES Innovations Honoree for this small but mighty device that can bring life-saving technology into every home.”
The Blackout Buddy CO will be available in 2014 for $59.99. To learn more about Etón and the company’s products, please visit www.etoncorp.com.
