    I am planning on getting a battery, probably marine grade, to keep a few lightbars up and running. I can recharge during the day with generator/solar, but the generator will not be always available.
    Any suggestions for decent light bars/bulbs/enclosures for battery powered LED lights? They need to light up a small mosquito tent/local area just to see how much beer I pour in that glass.

    the propane tank one is not a bad idea. I hate to waste them cylinders though, hence my battery and solar charging

    flash?

    It’s been great for me. Withstood some gnarly winds a couple months ago. Best price that includes mount and lights for an awning, too. It’s the 2.5m, whatever size that is.

    technically illegal, so in case anything is to go wrong, a fire, a small explosion, anything at all, insurance can pretty much deny it all.

    I have for extended Camping trips a little 5Lbs refillable propane tank (yes legal in Canada too) that I just hook up with a adapter hose to a Coleman Propane lantern and a Solar rechargeable battery Goal Zero Yeti 1000 that I plug USB powered Goal Zero lamps into. However for the most the Camp Fire and Natural light is the best along with a LED head band light when really need to watch my Pour.... the propane tank is only 8.5 inches diameter by 10.75 inches tall

    Great choice and perfect tank size for many users.

    Have been using that size tank for years. Highly recommended and worth the investment if it'll be used often enough.

    You may be good to go with it being fully charged before starting your trip and not needing to be recharged until you return home. Based on your anticipated usage and depending on how many days and hours it would be in use while on your trip?

    Here's a tool to do some estimating.
