I cant seem to keep my one oil lamp lit well. I hate WalMart wicks! My candle is giving more light than the lamp! I keep forgetting to buy the forever wicks for my large oil lamps. What do you use when you dont use electricity?

 Sounds like she is choosing not to use it, not that she doesn't have it at all.

well, I would never CHOOSE to go without electricity, but we have had the power go out from storms and such..

in the summer, we just use our oil lamps and candles... are you sure the wick is set at the right setting? Try adjusting it to make sure it's not too low or too high..

In the winter we use those, as well as having a fire in the fire place.. it's a wood burning stove, so we could also cook on it if need be... although we have a gas stove as well, so we really would only have to hand light that to cook.. lol.

Maybe she is mobile?

We have oil lanterns and batter powdered lanterns for the times the electric goes out.

Um... I don't choose to not use electricity unless its during daylight hours and I can use natural light.
