Solar-powered "accent candle" available - like solar yard lights, only portablegreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
I received a SilvoHome catalog recently and found something you might be interested in. They look like those solar yard lights, only they're portable.
Solar-powered accent candles go wherever you need light. On the deck or patio, by the swimming pool or for a late night picnic on the lawn, these handy solar-powered lights can go anywhere you need accent lighting. Leave them in the sun during the day for recharging, and place them wherever needed in the evening. They measure only 4-1/4"H x 5-1/4"D, have non-marring rubber feet and automatically turn on at night. A full day of sun will produce approximately 8 hours of light.
Catalog # 1269 Solar Accent Candle $24.99 Buy 2 or more, 21.99 each
I didn't even know about Silvo until a couple of weeks ago - I make no money on this. I ordered two of these yesterday - they don't sound like they'd provide any bright light, but at least you could tell where you're going. It would be nice not to have to mess with batteries, kerosene, lamp oil, or candles at least ONCE in awhile.

You can tell I'm too tired - I didn't even give you the phone number! Duh . . . .
That's more like it.

I bought one at Lowe's for about $15. It's pretty nice and provides more light than you would think, from one small yellow LED.
