While this question may at first seem absurd – what possible connection can be found between these two products? – it is the reality of BatteriesInAFlash.com’s 2013 major project. Throughout the last couple years, we have all noticed a series of worsening, bizarre weather and natural disasters. Since when did tornadoes hit Pennsylvania? Earthquakes in Haiti? Even fresher in our minds is the shock of Hurricane Sandy striking New England in late October. Would anyone expect a tropical storm to bring so much snow to hard struck areas? The Northeast of the United States is still not fully recovered from the disaster.
Seeing this surge of catastrophe’s awakened a new concern for BIAF’s owners Mike Dinelli and Avel Ureno. We want to help our customers prepare for the unexpected storms and disasters that may face any one of us at any time. For years we have already been selling flashlights, battery- and solar- powered lanterns, as well as Portable Backup Power systems and inverters. Even that isn’t enough for us to feel like we’ve done everything for our customer’s safety. To this end, we have opened an entirely new Focus On Survival eBay web store. The goal is to provide people with everything needed to be prepared for an emergency, as well as other, fun outdoor equipment. Continue reading
One of the great things about being a technology based company right here in Las Vegas, NV is the privilege to attend CES every January. This year was no exception.

However, this year seemed more of a transition year. Much of the technology already released is being improved upon. Focus was put upon waterproofing and ruggedizing the electronics we cherish, as well as making the technology we use bigger, faster, and more streamlined. Continue reading
We’ve made it through the Black Friday rush. The one that started on Thanksgiving, right after dinner’s dishes were washed and lasted clear into the next week. On average, people spent $423 each that single day!
Then, we successfully passed the end of the world. 12-21-12 didn’t have the same apocalyptic kick that the hype led us to believe. Maybe this is because the Mayans were completely wrong. After all, this isn’t the first time the calendar has ended and the world kept on turning. Remember when BC switched to AD? Or, perhaps, December 21st would have been a global celebration rather than destruction, since the ancient civilization traditionally celebrated the New Year on that day. I particularly like to believe a recent commercial in which the company Jell-O makes a sacrifice to appease the angry gods.
After that, came Christmas itself. Continue reading
