can i use battery operated lights outdoors
Bright Ideas

Lightweight, requiring no complicated installation, and offering immediate illumination with the flip of a switch or press of a button, battery-operated lights are a quick and convenient way to add ambience or security lighting just about anywhere. They don’t require access to an electrical outlet and look wonderful in jars, along mantles, stair railings, and windows—but what about outdoors, where they’ll be exposed to less-than-ideal temperatures, inclement weather, and the occasional curious critter?

Whether they are in your attic, your basement, or your entire home, low ceilings can mean making compromises when it comes to your lighting design.
