Shine a Little Light On the Backyard Grill

Battery Powered LED Grill Light

It can get dark on the patio when you're barbecuing your dinner, but you don't need to waste electricity in order to see how well done your steak is. The battery-powered LED Grill Light can light up your barbecue whenever you need it, and it clamps onto the side of your grill or any nearby spot to illuminate the area you need. The LED Grill Light is powered by the three included AA batteries.

You'll never need to replace these bulbs. Four LEDs can provide bright, white illumination for 50,000 hours. The flexible 18-inch neck bends to any angle. The LED Grill Light is outdoor- and salt-spray-tested for rugged durability.

Solar Powered Grill Light

The Solar Grill Light's solar panel absorbs energy from the sun to charge the batteries. A full day's light will illuminate the LEDs for 1 3/4 hours, ample time to grill your food to perfection. You'll never need to replace these bulbs. Four LEDs can provide bright, white illumination for 50,000 hours. The flexible 18-inch neck bends to any angle.

It's much easier to grill when you can see the food! Here's a gadget that will light your way to better grilling. The Lumatong is a set of 20 inch tongs that contains a tiny halogen flashlight cleverly attached to the handle. A bright beam of light brightens the food wherever you point the tongs. The plastic light case is detachable for easy cleaning. Now you have no excuse to burn the burgers, day or night.
