I use white LED Christmas lights in the basement. They are always on. 12vdc can run off rechargeable battery power for a long time. Solar, wind is the choices here. Grid when it’s up.Like many here I have oil lamps, candles but I have recently changed my focus in this area to those solar powered lawn landscaping lights. I bought a dozen of those cheap $5 ones at homedepot.
I am trying to find a way of making them slighty brighter, I switched out their cheap Chinese batteries with some quality lithium rechargable batteries. We put 5 of them across the fireplace mantle with a mirror behind them and they lit the room pretty good but I wonder if there is anything else I can do
Is anyone doing this and have any ideas or any thoughts on this?
LED's are safer than open flame and ANY light is good when its pitch dark in the basement.
