For around $40, you can get a little light module that you can charge during sunlight hours and use when it gets dark. They’re similar to solar landscape lighting and just as effective. You can read with the light or hang one in your tent for a cool light that you can play cards under for hours.
Are you always getting frustrated when you reach for your flashlight and its batteries are pooped out again? A solar flashlight is always ready to go when you need it. Instead of storing it in a drawer, you need to put it on a window sill, but it’s worth it. Kids love these lights, and they’re much brighter than you think. They work by using well-designed optics and efficient LEDs. They’re great for remote cabins, boats, camping, RVs, and so on. In contrast to many “cheap” solar gizmos, these are reliable and provide you with light for years, so they’re also good investments.
