Was just firing up the computer to get on CPF and everything went dead. The lights flickered for a bit then nothing. By some amazing coincidence I had my Fenix P2D right in my hand at the time! "How did it know?" I thought to myself.
Luckily I had just taken the meal out of the microwave and was about to eat it after it cooled a little. Ceiling bounce off the modified 3D 100 LED light was probably overkill to eat with, but it sure was bright. Washing up in the kitchen was done with ceiling bounce from a Fenix P3D on high. Bathroom stop was made with ceiling bounce from a P2D on medium. General illumination was with my old Dorcy Super 1 watt 3D (old Luxeon yet to be upgraded) also bounced from the ceiling.
Conclusion, the second most important thing in a blackout is a white ceiling.
After the power was restored I put the Li ions on charge ready for next time. What a fun night.
