You can also try putting a flashlight on the bottom of an empty milk jug.


Edit_1:You know what i just so happen to have an empty milk jug laying about lemme find a flashlight and i'll take a pic.


Edit_2: It would seem my flashlight has gone missing, wanted to post my own but here's one from online.

Or you can buy a whole damn SUV and kick out the light and attach it to a rocket, send it to the moon, go to the moon, pick it up, dust it for moon rocks, take it back home, and reconstruct it into a $1 emergency light.

Why can't you just use a light I really don't understand.

like what, a flash light?
a crank one? those are like 10+ bucks

this is for emergency, batteries will die, and if you want to spend as little money as possible for a ok light, that doesn't need batteries and is small this is one way to do it

It's about light diffusion, flashlights normally only shine in one direction. By diffusing the light, you can redirect it to light up everything around it, rather than only in front of it.

Oh but of course

Your mileage may vary though based on how many lumens the light source of choice is pumping out. To be honest most translucent objects will do the trick and some may better distribute the light without dimming it as much.

Get those religious looking candles that come in a tall glass. The white ones are reflective, and therefore brighter.

It costs about a few dollars and they burn for days. Plus you can reuse them.

Fire is free and requires no batteries.
