Default Emergency Kit Essential!

Just saw this product today on Here's a link to the video. It's a 100 hour plus candle. Seems like a good idea what do you guys think?

Depends on the size of the kit. I have included a tea light or two in my hiking bag- typically good for a couple of hours. The long burn candles are also known as a plumber's candles. Check hardware stores- originally used for plumbers that were wiping lead joints on cast iron pipe. I also use them in the shop- lube saw blades, hand planes, etc.

Plumber's candles are short and fat (like some of us) and have a higher amount of stearic acid in the wax- slower burn.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
