I found inexpensive solar lights at IKEA. One is a goose-neck table lamp with a pop-out solar panel and the other a half-ball shape about the size of a cantaloupe. It works well on a table or on the floor. IKEA also carries a powerful hand-crank flashlight. It is in the kids department but certainly not a toy. Harbour Freight carries several solar lights also such as a 200 ft , 50 light rope light.
