    Default What is in car emergency kit

    As anyone who has ever broken down on the interstate, or even worse, on a rural back-road. There are few situations remotely as helpless and frustrating. Virtually all vehicles come with a basic car jack and spare tire, however, there are countless situations where these necessities are exceedingly useless.
    There are plenty of tried-and-true tools to have at your disposal when you break down, and even a few lesser-known gadgets and tricks. With these helpful utilities, you’ll be able to stay cool under pressure, even if you are a little overheated under the hood. Here are seven essentials to pack in your car's emergency kit.
    #1 Reflectors

    One of the most dangerous aspects of being stuck on the side of the highway is the risk of collision with passing vehicles. Placing reflectors at successive distances behind your vehicle will help warn other drivers and create a buffer between your vehicle and oncoming traffic.

    #2 First aid kit

    If you're involved in a minor collision, having a first aid kit at your disposal is crucial. Be it a car accident or a misstep on the trail-head, gauze, bandages, antiseptics, and pain relievers are all handy items to have around during an accident.

    #3 Power bank with a flashlight

    The power bank with a flashlight is one of the most important items in any emergency kit. Whether you're changing a tire roadside or simply trying to flag down help, a little light can go a long way in an emergency. Power bank gives your cellphone more juice power. Tattu 10400mAh power bank is a good choice.

    #4 Fire extinguisher

    When dealing with combustibles such as gasoline, it's probably a good idea to have a fire extinguisher handy. After a car crash, a small fire can escalate into a much bigger problem in no time.

    #5 Ponchos

    Breaking down is bad enough, but having to change a tire roadside in the rain is even more frustrating. While a basic poncho probably won't save your life during an emergency, it will certainly make your life easier if you need to walk a small stretch in the rain to find help.

    #6 Stinger USB Emergency Tool

    The Stinger USB Emergency Tool is certainly something to have at your disposal when things go awry. After a major accident, car doors and seat belts may be jammed. The Stinger packs a powerful punch to shatter the dashboard or nearest window allowing you to quickly exit the vehicle. The backside of the device incorporates a blade to cut through a malfunctioning seat belt as well.
    #7 A Car Jump Starter

    When you car battery bad, you can use jump starter to starter your car. Also most of the jump starter includes jumper cables, that are so great if there are others car nearby to give you a friendly jolt. The Tattu Car Jump Starter is one of the most reliable options on the market.
