They can be installed in only 10-20 minutes using a screwdriver and some Teflon tape.

These LED lamps can easily be stuck on the wall using 3M wall tape. iRV2 member LAC shares, “I like to sit back on the side of the dinette cushions with my back to the rear large window and read…this is a great lamp. Flexible arm.”

You could also use these lamps anywhere you need extra light, like in the bathroom or under cabinets.  Since they only require AA batteries, no wiring, drilling, or power is needed.
