    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.
    Ah ha
    I already have a few of those LED's
    What is a SLA
    I am guessing an external battery pack thingi
    If so or if not what is a good source of power to charge items like phones/laptops - apart from your main mode of transport (vehicles battery)

    The nitecore range of lanterns are awesome, theyíre lightweight and provide plenty of useable light in a hut or tent. I have a couple, one that runs on a single 18650 battery and another that has an inbuilt rechargeable. The battery runtimes are very good as well.

    used to have a 12v flouro tube with alligator clips and connected it to a 7amp gelcell battery . would light up a hut with a reasonable amount of light not super bright but could cook and do most things even read a book if not little writing. would last more than 4 nights usage. not a backpack unit more if a vehicle or boat was used to get to camp.

    I think it might be Sealed Lead Acid battery. like some of the 7 to 14Ahr batteries and the no-maintenance 12 volt car batteries

    years back I bought a wee gas latern..about the size of a tea cup/arcoroc mug,weighs next to nothing and comes in nifty plastic container.with a small screw on gas cylinder it takes up stuff all room and has added bonus of adding heat to a tent,not a whole heap,but its heat all the same. the $2 shop or mitre 10 have funky wee lanterns that run off AAs ,more than enough light for small tent.

    I had a luminoodle, not sure where is us now! But have a Goal Zero single LED lamp now. It lights up my whole tent and is much more efficient. Itís nice and small and can be daisy chained up to more units if required. The Luminoodles have quite a few LEDs, thatís probably why they use more power.
