Picking the right lighting for your van is important – with proper lighting, not only can it make tasks easier, it can change the mood and improve your life on the road.
Identification of your surroundings and potential threats, self-defense, emergency preparation and even just conserving your phone battery, these are just four examples of the immediate benefits of adding a portable light to your everyday carry.
When answering the question of which light is right for the job, you should take a couple of things into consideration.
- Objective: where and what do you intend to use this light for? For practicality you should look for a light that is high in luminosity, and a warmer light may be more suited for ambient or general lighting.
- Luminosity: or brightness, is measured in lumens. Keep in mind that brighter is not necessarily better – an overly bright bedroom may affect your quality of sleep, and a dimly-lit working area may make it hard to focus.
- Color Temperature: the lower the Kelvin units, the warmer the light. A warm light would be good for ambient and mood lighting, while a cooler light will be good for task-based areas (e.g. workspace).
