If the mains feed to your house happens to be cut off for X amount of days, have you got a particular lighting set up in place? I'm guessing that most of us on here have more than enough hand held type torches close to hand but having to hand hold/carry one from one room to another etc is hardly ideal and what with their high battery consumption in general. Currently I have a couple of single cell 18650 torches which can tail stand and would light up an whole room no problem but the battery certainly wouldn't keep that up for too many hours/evenings,.....do you guys keep a load of spare 18650's batteries fully charged? Maybe you have a few torches that run off four 18650's, I guess that those types of torches could last a week on their lower outputs but still provide enough light to light a room to a fair degree. I'm thinking that the LED strips/12V car battery route is probably the best modern day answer but having to rig up this kind of thing in each room, on the spur of the moment is going to be heavy/awkward,..I know that the wife wouldn't be too happy if they were left permanently in place/on show. And of course there's the recharging aspect, without having a huge bank of solar panels, do you just make sure that you connect each car battery to a mains charger say once a month?? We do have candles and a petrol camping type lantern in the house and would use them if need be, is the 'old way' still the best/most common approach? What do you guys think??
