A battery operated lamp system is a good way to light up your jewelry display when no electricity is available for your booth.
Battery Powered Lights
Used in Jewelry Displays
Types of wireless lights often used in jewelry displays include
* stick-on LED lights
* book lights / reading lights
* travel lamps
* magnetic LED camping lights
* other battery-operated camping lights / tent lights
* battery-powered folding task lamps.
These lights are usually available in stores like Target, Walmart, home improvement stores, household accessories stores, camping / outdoor supply stores, pharmacies, etc.
Also be sure to investigate solar powered lights for your jewelry booth.
Brighter Wireless Lights
But sometimes you need brighter lights, especially when displaying jewelry outdoors at night, or in a dimly-lit venue.
That’s when it’s time for heavy-duty battery-operated lamps such as
* trouble lights
* work lights
* utility lights.
These more robust lights are often available at hardware stores, home improvement stores, automotive supply stores, etc.
Choosing Cordless Lighting
for Your Jewelry Booth
Things to check for when buying wireless lamps for your jewelry display:
* Hooks, clamps, adhesives, or magnets for hanging or mounting the light on your display
* Wattage or candlepower of the light (you don’t want to wind up with an industrial floodlight!) :o)
* How many batteries the lamp needs
* Price of the batteries
* Estimated lifespan of the lightbulb (usually given in hours)
* Whether the lamp is solar powered or rechargeable
* Weight of the light fixture
* Color of the light (white or natural daylight bulbs are best for your jewelry)
* Manufacturer’s guidelines for safe use of the light (since you’ll be using it around other people, you want to be sure it won’t be a safety hazard)
* How hot the light fixture gets.
Stores That Carry
