    My Lumanoodle seems to chew through the power, apart from that it’s ok.

    there was an inflatable led light awhile back, when blown up it pointed the LED at a top reflector. worked pretty well for the power draw and when deflated was about the size of a saucer

    Same with mine. I use a 10,000 power bank and the noodle uses 15% on average of that a night. Only having it on for a couple hrs.

    I don't know the name of the light I am going to buy that runs off sealed lead acid batt.
    Used one this year and it was brighter by miles and more eco than my luminoodle.

    Luminoodle is great for backpack hunts using a small powerbank.

    Maybe not what your looking for but type tent light into Aliexpress. Lots of little lights for around $2 that run on a couple of aa's.

    have found ones on aliexpress, run on a single 18650 or 3xAAs look the same as an old incandescent (size and shape, white plastic with orange hangingclip and an included small black carabiner) red led is a nice touch, they dont last a night though but white is good for a few hours of evening cooking.

    have a knock off luminoodle, better coverage ideal for over a kitchen bench for 2 people working.

    Have tried a few different lights but still love my kerro lamp.
    Some thing about the smell of it , always goes (sometimes with excitement).
    Just makes a camp feel like a camp.

    Have a look at the LA30 by Nitecore - built in USB that can be charged from power bank or laptop/AC charger.
    Also has place for two AA batteries on top of the built in Lithium Ion if the 56 hours on low is inadequate.
    Has a hook on the back for hanging plus red light.

    Mini USB light for laptops, cost a couple of dollars each, great in huts on benches etc. Not as good in a tent.
    Luminoodle also gets a lot of use.

    Grab a couple of 6 or 8W LEDs like these off Ali:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3294...6-4111f3659394

    Get two sockets for them off a lighting shop and add an in-line switch if you wanna be flash. They run off an SLA and will easily light a small hut.
