I do have the option of adding a battery
to make the existing 12V lights
work, but since the lights
are not in optimal locations and that's ALL the battery
would power, I'm thinking of auxiliary lighting
My thoughts: a lantern with rechargeable battery
to hang centrally in the trailer for general lighting
, and some kind of reading light
, maybe a book light
So looking for lanterns, I find several options.
I've found some rechargeable lanterns that can be recharged in the sun. This might be a reasonable option since when it is cold I can use the Coleman propane
lamp. They are pricey, though, does anyone know of an inexpensive version? And do they provide enough light
Or there are lamps with rechargeable batteries, like Coleman lanterns. I'd want one that provided about 12 hrs of light on a charge. Any recommendations?
Right now I am using a Ryobi spotlight that runs plenty long on a battery, but it doesn't hang up and is pretty heavy.
