Ho Ho Ho Survival
G'day fellow Minions. Got a Bison approved (ha, I'm assuming it's Bison approved - don't lag on me to the boss) prep.
Stay with me on this. Last year I bought a small string of lights that were powered by two AA batteries. They were designed to be put in various places like around picture frames, hanging off the gun rack, that sort of thing. The one I bought didn't flash, it wasn't solar powered, it just gave a steady ice blue glow with a basic on off switch.
How much light did it put off? Enough to light up a room. Not so much you could read, but enough you can see everything.
How long did it last? You know what? I got sick of trying to work it out it lasted so dang long. We're talking days.
There are other solar powered christmas lights. These can be used to provide light in area's so bad guys can't lurk. I use a set around my car port. Now here's something to look for in your lights. Last function memory. The lights around my car port revert back to flashing. Annoying. The new ones use the last function so they'll stay solid.
Another point. The lights appear to be decreasing in quality (length, # of lights).
Last point - don't wait to long to buy them. I had the idea of buying them at bargain prices just after christmas. No dice. They ran down their stock and once christmas hit they were gone.
Here's a link to what I have. I'll be buying more this year. They take up bugger all room to put away for the apocolypse -> https://www.bigw.com.au/product/christmas-battery-operated-24-led-string-lights-blue/p/692603/
