Rope Lights & Glowsticks
Camping Lights Safety Tips:
• Don't store lights with batteries in places where they will become extremely hot
• Keep camping lights out of reach from children
• Protect lights by wrapping them in old clothes or fabrics
• Do not bend rope lights to a 90-degree angle as this can break the wire inside the light
• When filling fuel-based lanterns, ensure that any spillage is wiped away to avoid fires
Incandescent Bulbs +
The incandescent bulb has been around the longest and still offers benefits that other bulbs cannot. For instance, incandescent bulbs reach full brightness immediately and produce a warmer-coloured light. They also provide a steady beam of light that doesn't flicker.
Fluorescent Bulbs +
Many utility and camping-style fluorescent lights are quite durable and provide ample light for camping. They do tend to be larger than other types of camping lights, so consider your packing space.
LED Lighting +
The new kid on the block is LED lighting, which is extremely rugged and uses very little power. When equipping kids with camping lights, LEDs are best because they generate only minimal heat. LED also has the advantage of being unattractive to most bugs!
