Solar Lights for Power Outages

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 555 Posts

Solar outdoor garden lights that have been brought inside to use as emergency lighting.We get our share of power outages and that is usually when my flashlight batteries are dead. I don't feel comfortable lighting lots of candles, so this idea is a good stopgap while waiting for the lights to come back on.


I took my little outdoor solar powered LED lights inside and stuck them into vases. I could carry them safely around the house for a little extra light and no fire danger. Safer when you have children, pets or elderly in the house!

Each pictured solar lamp is about 1X which means 1 lumen of light which equals one candle. There are some larger solar-powered LED lights that could actually light an entire room. 12X lumens for a bathroom and 24X lumens would light a living room, approximately.

These could even be added to rooms that get a nice amount of daylight sunshine in the windows normally to use at little night lights at nightime!

This is a brilliant idea and I'm wondering; why didn't I think of that?

What a great idea. I'm not sure I have seen the brighter kind. I will be looking for them.
