Solar lanterns and Woodstove

Ok, finally got over to pick up the wood stove today. Bought it from a good friend and it is just the right size for the Clubhouse. In really good shape, I haven't even cleaned it up yet, just needs to be wiped off a little and it's ready for service.

Olivia bought me some lights at Wally World in the clearence section. 2 rechargeable solar utility lanterns (marked down to $13.00) with 12 super bright LED's, car adapter and AC/DC adapter. 11 housr run time and a Heavy Duty Aluminum hook. Great lights !! 1, 20 LED rechargeable crank lantern with AM/FM radio, cell phone charger port and dimmer and flash switch ( marked down to $23.00 ). This lantern would be great in an emergency situation, just a few cranks and you have all these functions.


Bought this one a BigLots, 6 super bright LEDs with velcro mount or screw in base. The light will tilt up or down to your needs and is an unbeliveable light source. 1000 hours on 3 AAA batteries. These do a great job lighting up the Clubhouse.

Lovin the new and most important addition to the Clubhouse. All it needs is a glass door - you know for ambiance!!

Gen, thanks, the stove is great and the lights are perfect for the Clubhouse. Just set them outside during the day to charge and they are ready to go again.

That little wood stove is going to really heat well. Your mancave will be like an oven. Very nice.

Hey Chris
Just wondering what you've got planned for under and around the woodstove? Do you have some scavenged stone lying around?

Marie said...

Those lights sound great--makes me wonder if there are any (especially with the extra functions) at our local national chainstore. Also didn't know that all you have to do is leave them in the sun to recharge them--I need to learn more about solar energy apparently. How long will a day's charging last?
Also, nice woodstove--it's a clubhouse with everything!

Survivalist news, Thanks, with the 2 inch foam board insulation it's not gonna take much fire to keep it toastie.

Cath, you know I have a plan, with scavenged stone ofcourse. I will post when I start the project sometime in the next month or so.

Marie, the solar lights are the greatest thing around. They have a small solar cell on top just like the little solar lights that you put around your walk or whatever, just sit in the sun for 6 to 8 hours for 2 hours of full light. This Clubhouse does have some benefits. lol

Thanks,
Chris

Looks like your going to be set, you could put up overnight guests in there too.

I like those lights, next trip to town, I'm going to look for some.
