Propane Lights

For those of that do not have power at your camp, what do you use for light? I think that I am going to buy the Humphrey propane lights. Any reviews on them?

Re: Propane Lights

They work great. The only down side is during the summer time they can give out a little too much heat.

Re: Propane Lights

we used propane lights for years. they worked fine,except they didnt make "white" light. kinda like old car headlights that were "yellow". remember these lights were installed in 1948. we upgraded to hanging a coleman lantern over our kichen table/lounge area. we used that for maybe 10 years. then we wired the place to use a portable generator .there are pullstring lights in every room and both front and back porches. the best so far. i bought a 900 watt generator from harbor frieght for 89 bucks with thier coupon. cheap. thought i would try it. if it craps out i only lost $90. thing runs great. reviews on thier website are 80% good. hope this helps a little.

Re: Propane Lights

Don't use the Humphreys, use palin? I think. Good light when the mantle is new but they dim with time. After going to CFL 12v lights we use the propane as a low area light.
Get a small solar panel and a deep cycle battery and you can have free light all year.

Re: Propane Lights

I would buy LED lights of some sort and very good batteries. They are bright and the batteries last a long time.

Re: Propane Lights

In our last camp we had a gas light in the Outhouse and we mounted a small battery fan above it to blow down the heat.

Worked great in the winter.

Re: Propane Lights

We us a harbor freight solar panel that charges 2 deep cycle marine batteries.....in use for 6 months now and works great! We use 20 watt florescent light bulbs that throw about 100 watts of light (way brighter than the coleman gas lanterns we used to use). Total cost for the system was only about $250.

Dad, I think I got a 10 point!
