      A headlamp around a gallon of water = ambient light for your tent and a great night lamp when the power is out. This seriously works! My family forgot to grab night lights to bring with us to our rental house so my Mum bought water jugs and headlamps! This kids loved it and these were 10 times brighter than any night light we've ever had!
