Carbide Lamps (and Mining Helmets)


Recommended Posts

Abandoned Mines? Check.

Post-Digital Apocalypse? Check.

Rusty outmoded, but still Operational 1890's hardware? Oops, Nope.

What about the most popular Cave Lighting system of the 1900's:

Carbide Lamp!

It is waterproof, wind resistant, not electronic, and sturdy and provides a broad illumination with bonus heat.

However, its consumes rare carbide tablets, and *gasp* water also.

This would be perfect to add to mines, natural cave systems, and perhaps outdated underground shelters/bunkers...

It would also pair perfectly with a miners helmet - the two could be combined for hands-free lighting.
