    While I realize incan lights are basically a thing of the past now that high power low consumption LEDS are on the market. The problem being that if an EMP (probably unlikely...but who knows!) occurs in the area you live would that LED light be as worthless as the latest fuel injected car?


    Is there a place for one of those old surefire incandescent lights in a kit?

    Probably. New fangled lights have quite a bit of miniature circuitry in them. OTOH, EMP is vastly overblown in some respects.

    I agree EMP tends to be blown a bit out of proportion, but it is something I plan for. I figure a widespread EMP attack will have serious consequences on our modern infrastructure but I doubt ALL vehicles will be knocked out, etc. That being said, not a bad idea to have some incan lighting laying around. Luckily, I'm there.
