- LED light recommendations for inside a tent
Looking for an LED light for inside a tent / caravan awning. Will have a 240v 3 pin plug – any recommendations?

Dunno about a mains one, there’s loads of battery/solar ones around, I got one from Aldi; it’s fairly large, typical hanging lantern, cost peanuts, does the job.Posted 5 years ago
Tesco do a variety of cheap lights: http://www.tesco.com/direct/sports-leisure/torches-lanterns/cat19320005.cat

Fill yer boots! 😀
9 or 12 volt battery and some LED flexistrip.

We use a screwfix inspection lamp, the lower powered one is enough light for a tent.Posted 5 years ago
remember to switch it off before, … you know 😳Posted 5 years ago
Actually that is a good point to raise:
Any lamp with a small light emitter and a projector lens arrangement (most led units) will cast a really sharp shadow! 😳
Maybe best go for a light with a large opalescent bulb.
Depends what sort of campsite you’re on, I guess.Posted 5 years ago

I’ve used solar leds and they lit the tent but in the end still prefer the old semi-opaque plastic milk container filled with water with a headtorch strapped around it (light source pointing inwards towards the water giving a great ambient glow). And a few tealights in sturdy holders.

They do little square ones as part of a ‘system’, with adapters for headbands and such. They’re ace.Posted 5 years ago
