Lol, thanks for looking folks.
Lighting in my shed.
At first we used my tool flashlights that produce 120 lumans each. The 12 and 20 volt Dewalt lights would last 4 to 12 hours. However they did not spread the light well due to the narrow beam reflector.
Then we switched to the small indoor oil lanterns. They gave amazing light, around 500 lumans, at a cost of $10 each at home hardware.
Expensive Paraffin based lamp oil would not clime the wick properly and resulted in low light, and a burned up wick in a short time.
So we changed to using just strait kerosine. It works vary vary well at a low cost. Under $1 a day for light, running one lamp 12 hours a day. As long as the wick height is set correctly, there is almost no smell at all.
However, even with my shed not being air tight, the lamp was still polluting our indoor air.
So I had the idea to use a LED MR16 12 volt household bulb, running of the 12 volt plug on my Milwaukee M18 heated jacket controller. The Jacket controller also has a USB port for charging my cell phone.
The MR16 12 volt LED bulb at 130 lumans. They are over $15 each normal cost.
The Milwaukee M18 electric jacket controller wired to run my two light bulbs.
You can see the switch on the back of the controller to turn it on and off. You can also see the USB port.
I cut one of the extension wires from my jacket, and wired it into some scrap light gauge wire.
The MR16 bulb on.
You can see the two bulbs hanging from the ceiling on the left side. My wife is reading by the light.
Camera Flash off.
Showing the light pattern on the floor. From the 6 foot ceiling, the beam on the floor is 2.5 feet in diameter.
The M18 battery's I'm using are 3 amp hours. Milwaukee now makes a 4 and a 5 amp hour battery. I get 4 hours of light per amp hour with 2 bulbs running 3 watts each.
