Outdoor Lighting

Hi all,
I was wondering what everyone uses as outside lighting, for example under the awning. I was thinking of getting one of those 200/500/700W Weatherproof Outdoor Work Lights to plug into the outside 110V sockets. That's my plan for when we've got electical hookup. When we don't I was planing on using a rechargable lantern or propane lantern.

Any other ideas?

Thanks

Enrico

Just don't leave your Night Blaster work light on all night like some folks do. There's not much worse than lying in bed with the tent end lit up because the guy in the toy hauler next to you left his back yard lights on all night.

Lights with a soft gentle glow are best...like the highly sought after Lawnware light

A nice fire is the lighting we use, but when Its raining or didn't have a fire I use the amber side light but turn it off once I'm in the TT

Thanks mcfarmall. Yeah, wasn't planning on leaving it on all night - apart from wasting a lot of energy I figured it would bother the neighbors. I was actually thinking of pointing the light up at the awning so that we got the gentler reflected light off the awning rather than the direct blast of the halogen bulb, just have to watch the temperature.

As for the Lawnware lights .... well, let's just say that they aren't my cup of tea
But I'll have a look at other patio lights before I make a decision.
