    I just saw these at Big 5, then I saw them at HarborFreight and so I had to buy one. I think $3.99. IT has 2 columns of LEds, and a switch in the middle. Comes with batteries, 4 aaa. What I really like, this thing is BRIGHT. And it can be mounted with magnets, or velcor. I envision this could be near the door of the PUP on the outside. At HF they even had a version of this that had a dimmer on it.

    They are definitely bright!

    I keep one in the truck and use them in a couple of small closets and the pantry in my house. I found that they are expensive to run. I only can seem to get about three uses per light before I have to change out the batteries. They are very handy when I turn them on, but can't seem to remember to turn them off!o_O

    Once in awhile Harbor Freight will have these for free with any purchase (and coupon)

    I saw them at Walmart and almost bought one to use with the camper, but changed my mind. I was thinking of inside beside the door so I wouldn't have to fumble to find the overhead lights in the dark, but then I was thinking I would then need to remember to turn it off. Not worth it as with my luck I would forget until I'm ready to turn in for the night.

    Right... I'm not big on non-rechargable battery powered lights. Remember when those round "tap lights" were such the rage? I never understood it.

    Oh gosh I left those on all the time. If my pantry wasn't so dark I would have ditched it a long time ago. I just found motion sensor led lights rechargable lights for my pantry that I can't wait to try. May actually be able to get past a day now.

    I had one installed right inside the door on my pup, useful for getting set up in the dark before I raised the sink and had overhead lights.

    I have one just inside the door and one in each closet, also use them at home too. Great little lights especially at HF for the money. They give a bright light.

    I have one in the clipper's bathroom. The switch is messed up so I have to get it right in the middle position to go on. It is very convenient there as I don't have to feel around the ceiling for the wired light.

    I have one to put in the FnR bathroom, but haven't done so yet.

    I also have puck lights (aka tap lights) strategically placed around the clipper. I use them a lot instead of the overheads. Never have a problem with the batteries - they last over a year. But I am very good about turning off my lights - I prefer them off so I can see out the windows.

    I put that same light in one of my cabinets. Seem to get a season out of the batteries, but it does not get used often or for a long time. Works great for what my needs were, helping illuminate the inside of the storage area.

    I got four or five of them to use around here. Great for putting next to bathroom light switch... Keeps you from stumbling around in the dark when the power goes off haha...

    Got mine from WALMART.. Have had them for a couple of years now and still running off the same AA batteries...
