If you use the solar rechargeable light under a canopy, will it charge? Does it need sunlight or just bright indirect light?

I don't like it for a porch light. The light is to dispersed. Porch lights (if you have to have one) should be directed downward so you don't disturb your camping neighbors more than you have to.

Can you tell I really don't like lights while camping and have camped next to people who left their lights on all night!

I like the porch lights with orange face plates, pointed at the door lock.

On our last camping trip, I turned in early while my husband decided to hang out around the camp fire with "the guys". He was so pleased that I left the porch light on for him .....

Try this one. It's just over $10. You can find it for $15 at Ace Hardware. It has a magnetic mount, or you can use adhesive or screws. It's got a proximity sensor mode, and it only goes on after dusk. You can mount it sideways and point the head downward a bit if you want (it swivels left and right when upright). The only thing I can't say is how long the batteries last. Supposed to be water resistant, too.
