As the Amish live mostly off-grid battery-powered lights have become an excellent way for them to light their barns and work areas for chores and then outdoor social gathers and games. They have moved away from oil lamps and even large bulky car battery power sources to now take advantage of the battery packs they also use on their workshop power tools.
The development and refining of low battery draining corn cobb LED DC light bulb technology has also facilitated the use of lighter easier to use battery sources. The lower wattage LED bulbs also provide nearly double the light brightness as the same wattage in AC bulbs using less energy and producing only a fraction of the heat output.
The molded battery pack adapter docking station works just like it does on a power tool to firmly hold the battery in place in any position. It is more than just a black box with some wiring, it contains electronic circuitry that regulates the voltage and provides automatic shutdown when the battery reaches low power limits.
You will want to have several battery packs available. Runtime on a 5 Amp Hour battery pack using the 30-watt bulb is 2-3/4 hours and on a 9 Amp Hour battery pack is 5-1/2 hours. Using the 50-watt bulb reduces the 5 Amp down to 1-1/2 hours and the 9 Amp down to 3-1/4 hours. Actual experience may vary based on the age of the battery packs. Low battery protection built in.
These units do not recharge the batteries, you will still need a battery charging docking station that comes with the power tools and charges the battery the same way that you charge them. The Amish have multiple battery packs and use either solar charging stations or charge while running generators for short time uses. Battery Pack is also not included as pictured.
