We will use this Coleman Rugged Battery Powered Lantern (Family Size) (http://amzn.to/1gib02u) if there is short term power outage for our primary lighting.
If there is a long term power outage we will haul out our battery backup and generator to light our main living area. If a family member needs to visit the restroom or another dark area of the house they will grab one of the battery powered lanterns.
