Yep. It is easy to put together some adapters to turn any plug lamp into a battery powered lamp. Just don't forget to switch the 12v bulb back before plugging it into AC or you'll let out the magic smoke. We get about a week of light out of old car batteries before putting them back on the charger.
I understand what you are saying, but, in an emergency/SHTF situation, 12v LED bulbs are extremely efficient and practical.
Health will naturally be collateral damage when the world goes to shit...
Understood, but then I have quite a bit of lamp oil which I'm not wasting starting fires. 12v would be an important resource but for me better spent on tasks other than lighting. It sucks that so much energy efficiency is bad for our health.
Interesting. Just listened to a BBC interview with a gal who has been without power for a few weeks in Ukraine. She said the smart people have car batteries and light. She said she was using candles and was waiting to buy a car battery for her family.
