I bought the Light-A-Life lamp in combination with the Scout 150 battery and the Solar Panel Briefcase to be ready for the power outages that occasionally hit my neighborhood. The Light-A-Life works well with the Scout 150; it plugs into the 12V DC port on the battery (leaving the USB and AC plugs available for other devices). It comes with a 9-foot cord and a handy carabiner clip, so there's plenty of flexibility in positioning the light. According to Goal Zero, the LEDs in the lamp provide light equivalent to a 45W incandescent bulb, and that seemed about right in my tests in a completely dark room. The lamp provides enough light to let you see where you're going at night, or to read by if you sat close to the lamp. Since up to 8 Light-A-Lifes can be chained together (so they'll run from a single Scout 150 battery), I'm thinking about getting at least one more lamp so I could keep a medium-sized room reasonably well lit during a power outage.
