Hi everyone,

Looking to improve the lighting inside my ice shack. Currently using 700W Power Box with a LED shop light, but my Power Box is less and less effective. It doesn't last long enough (now less than 1.5 hours).

What kind of setup do you have that works, that is cost effective (not looking to invest a lot of money in this) and that will not have me worry if I can stay long enough in my shack in the evening?

Thanks for your input!

I run an LED light bulb from a power pack like you. I also keep a simple propane lantern handy and have some solar powered string lights too.

Looks like your powerbox is going toast. You can take them apart and replace the battery at much less than buying a complete unit.

Friends have a couple of these and use them for camping.. I was impressed at how well they worked..
Would probably work well for ice fishing.

I have a Goal Zero Lighthouse Micro that works great. It runs all night on half power, which is enough to light a hut. It's a USB rechargeable that is so small it fits in a pocket, but is ruggedly made for the outdoors. The base model is only $29.99 on amazon.ca, and the Micro Flash with an added flashlight function to the lantern is $34.99. They work great.
