I use 2 dual fuel lanterns and one gas light. I also use a coleman recharchable lantern in the tent. I don't use fluoro's outside as they generally attract too many bugs.

Skip,

I have been using 12 volt lighting for the past couple of years.
My trailer i have wired up for running and charging a 12v battery bank.

This runs my fridge and lighting.

At the moment i am experimenting wih L.E.D lighting that i purchase online from a company in QLD.

I also have some L.E.D lead lights that you can purchase most places.

These lights are very very low on current draw so your batteries last longer.

Happy Camping
Hissy

Head for your nearest cheapie shop and get a pack of solar garden lights.
can get 4 for $20 usually
great around the camp soft light and go all night for nothing
just make sure they are in the sun during the day to charge up, Kev

Was in the Warehouse (where every one gets a bargain). They had 12 volt flouro light with both plug, alligator clips and a little stand for $7.95 If Mrs Braov had given me some pocket money I would have brought one - to go with the other various lights I have(can you have too many lights) :?

We have been looking at the Torpedo Lights. really good and great for running off a car baterry. BCF have them for $90 but I noticed Sidewinder have them on sale for $70.

Very bright, tough and last ages.

Cheers

This is def a great idea for putting around tents etc - light up those nasty ropes that hide in the dark (and always get you when you're up during the night!)
