The Crisco candle thread has me wanting to post about the nuclear equivalent to candles and regular wick lamps: Aladdin oil lamps. For those as don't know, these are non-pressurized mantle lamps that silently give off a very bright light equal to a 60-75 watt lightbulb, while actually being easier on fuel than a regular wicked lamp. Family members who were out on the farm before electricity used to rave about how wonderful it was when they first got an Aladdin, and they are still wonderful indeed when the power goes out. Thing is, they're being forgotten and parts how have to be ordered from companies like Lehman's and Amazon. Anyway, despite the high starting price of around $100, every prepper should have at least one Aladdin, if only to help keep off SAD in the winter. They add a fair bit of heat to the room, too.
