There are occasions when we have power outages and we use oil lamps and candles for lighting. I use T-lights (which burn 3-4 hours) in clear or frosted glass mugs I pick up at the local save-a-lot or dollar store for 'portable' lighting. They can be carried down a dark hallway or room to room with little worry they'll be blown out, leaving you standing in the dark.

You can now buy LED powered "tea lights" that last a long time but have no flame - they are safer than an open flame and good to have on hand for emergencies. Check stores like AC Moore, Michaels and others -especially around the holidays.
