    I like my Luminaid Nova. Yes, it's more than I need, but pretty light and solar charged, so no batteries needed. Just carry it on the outside of my pack and it stays pretty well topped off. I also use it with the strobe mode as a beacon to easily find my hammock when I have to wander off in the dark.

    I thought everyone just used their headlamp. It's the first thing I do when I climb into my hammock. So easy to clip into the caribiner that is clipped into my ridgeline.

    I think a lot of people do.
    But I seldom carry a head lamp except in winter.
    And I’ve found as I’m getting older I’m camping less in winter too.

    I used to, too, and still do on solo trips. Long story short, the site our troop was in had a very night, but larger than expected, pine grove attached. That's where I set up my hammock in daylight. After nightfall, I went to go to bed and spent 45 minutes (even with a headlamp) trying to find MY hammock (amidst a dozen or so uninhabited scout hammocks). That's when I started using the beacon.

    i have a flashlight with a white rubber attachment that came with a small flashlight i got somewhere that turns the beam of the light into a lantern pretty much. i take the lanyard of the flashlight and basically make a cow hitch with it and the flashlight for hanging it on the line.

    My personal favorite is the Moji rechargeable from Black Diamond. My favorite feature at a group hang is that I can set it up to change colors so I know which setup is mine when stumbling back from the campfire.

    Years (decades) ago, a friend gave me at attachment for my key fob. When you clapped, it beeped for a short while. Except the beep frequency (tone) was outside my hearing range. And my friend KNEW that. What are friends for! But .. one could cannibalize such a device so the on/off switch that activates the beep, temporarily turns on a light. Or, assuming you don't move around too much, there are cheap ($5 range) motion sensor light that would require you just move your hand around. You could put a little cardboard tunnel (think shrunken toilet paper roll) in front of the sensor so it is less sensitive to normal motion.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    I've been using a Photon MicroLight for a long time. Button and switch for on. Battery is replaceable. Unfortunately cost like $10 so not as price competitive as the ones on this post.

    I used to use something like this too. Lately I just larks head my headlamp on the ridge line. I also have a keychain light that looks like a blue light from harbor freight.
