Hi

When using ehu use the Outwell Merope electric light with a philips 8w energy saving genie bulb - although I belive this bulb is quivalent to a 40watt we are impressed by the light given out and its bright enough to read under.

When we havent got EHU we use the Ring Vega Cybalite (from Amazon) which also gives out a lovely bright light and has lots of positive reviews.

Our Outwell Castor central pendant light takes an economy bulb equivalent to a 40w and does reasonably OK, but we supplement it with another 40w table lamp, and battery LED light over the clothes cupboard.   

Both beds have the same battery lights too.

Castor:

3 of these battery lights from Amazon, surprisingly effective:
