Check for "emergency lighting"; or "security lighting". Looked in the
Northern Tool catalog (or northerntool.com) to find the following:
16195-1405: Emergency Light Turns on When Electric Power Fails,
(Hmmm: on the same catalog page there a "Fart Machine" 45140-1405 for
Back to the emergency lighting, the batteries are replacable -- I
frequently go to Batteries Plus, sometimes bringing the old unit for
them to recyle and to make sure I get one the same size and
configuration ==> tab or screw connectors, their location.
We have ceiling-mounted emergency lighting at the store where I work
-- they only last a couple of hours. A dimmer (not as bright) light
would last longer with the same battery (figure the amp-hours),
naturally not give as much light but when it's dark a little light is
relatively bright. You also might want to consider getting a solar
recharger so you can recharge during the day when the power is out for
an extended time. (No, solar panels won't recharge by the light
connected to the battery connected to the recharger.)
