Clip-On Solar Light

A clip-on solar lamp is the easiest way to bring light into a boat without messing with mounting, wiring, or batteries or depleting power from the boat's batteries. This model is made for an outdoor BBQ, with solar cells on the top (facing the window in this photo) and a switch-controlled bright LED lamp. It won't light up your whole boat cabin, and the small solar array won't power it very many hours, but it's a simple system you can clip on and forget about until needed. This one clips to an overhead hand rail and illuminates a galley countertop.
