I am trying to figure out lighting for a new camp that I take ownership of later this month. The camp will run on a generator and I do not wish to let it run all night. the cabin is two story with the 2nd floor being all open for beds. I am looking for battery lights for the stairs and one for the outhouse. I have done some web search and I came across MR. Beams lights. They are LED and run off of (4) AA batteries. Anyone with experience with Mr. Beams? Any other better lights on the market?
I want to make sure the lights are lit for the kids and wife. Don't want anyone falling down the stairs.
There are solar powered, motion detector lights with remote solar collectors.
Wire the stairwell for 12v DC lights like in an RV, keep a car battery or deep cycle marine battery in a closet for a power source and let the generator charge the battery through a converter. Some of the RV lighting fixtures even taken the cheap auto tail light bulbs.
Then there are also those cheap battery operated "tap it" lights too. Some of them actually turn themselves off after a preset time to conserve batteries.
