I can be honest and say that I’m a horrible photographer. I have a fancy DSLR camera that I bought a few years ago and I always use it in automatic mode.

Lamps, flashlights and lanterns frequently run on batteries or solar power, but the Green House GH-LED10WBW lantern only needs a drink of water with a dash of salt mixed in, and it’s good to go. It’s all thanks to its power source, a consumable rod that is filled with magnesium and carbon.
