I agree that would probably be more for a power outage or survival situation.

That would be straining the limits of practicality IMO. Saving is always good, but one also needs to draw the line somewhere.

Yea, that would probably be more for a power outage or survival situation.

Using a LED flashlight instead of LED lights

Sometimes the dollar store has little 9 bulb LED flashlights that use 3 AAA batteries. They also sell packs of 8 "heavy duty" AAA batteries that would be good in storage for a couple of years.
No need to buy expensive batteries, these flashlights will work for a week on the heavy duty batteries with lots of use and a month or more with light use.

Instead of using big LED lights with your main batteries, you may want to save that power for something else and use the little flashlights only for spot purposes when you need a bright light.

You could buy a small low wattage 12V LED light to provide a dim night light from your main batteries so you aren't bumping into walls, but then use the flashlights for the rest.

The dollar store sometimes sells USB LED book reading lamps which have 5 LEDs in them and a flexible goose neck. They run off of a 5V USB port but can run with a little more voltage no problem, so you can connect two of them in series for 12V !

You could point them at the ceiling and let the light reflect off it to light the whole room for a very small amount of power.
