Light Stand/Tripod

When overlanding you want to keep items to a minimum to save on space and more importantly weight, I like things we carry to have a double purpose where possible.

I modified an LED light to fit onto the camera tripod. This now gives us a

mobile spotlight we can use around camp or if needed for a mechanical repair. Say we need to change a tyre at night, instead of using a headlamp or trying to balance a torch we can setup the light stand and light up the whole side of the vehicle.

I wired the light into an anderson plug so with a 10m extension lead (used for mobile solar panel during the day) we can setup the light wherever we need it.
