Lighting my storage unit question

    So, I rent a 10'x20' storage unit that has no electrical outlets.

    I have been using a 12volt battery and a suspended headlamp bulb to light it up. It does not last very long due to the bulb's draw.

    I would like to know if anyone has any advice for going to 12volt led's for longer/brighter lighting...

    The "rope lights" look ok, but don't seem that bright.

    What I work up could also make an great hasty home lighting setup when the power goes out.

  2. You could try a coleman popane or dual fuel lantern, personally I'd just use a led headlamp on my head for finding stuff. I've seen led lamps but the ones I saw were for house wiring not battery, I guess you could use a inverter but I'm sure they do make 12 volt led floodlights. Ask at a rv store.

    I'm trying to think of lighting you could use elsewhere as well.

    What about a couple of the battery-powered lanterns?

    LEDs draw very little current and are very bright. Google RV LEDs.
