Subject: [Shop-talk] Battery Closet Light

I want to put one or two battery powered fluorescent lights in a closet,
with a switch that will turn them on when the door is opened. I can't
seem to find any that are ready made. I know I can probably hack
together some camping lanterns and a hall effect switch to accomplish
what I want, but I'd prefer something long and low profile, like an
under cabinet lights. Appearances and packaging count here. I've googled
and searched, and googled and searched and come up empty, so I am
appealing to the power of the list hive mind to see if anyone knows of
such a beast.

I'm trying to distribute the light down the height of the closet, so as
many shelves as possible are lit, which is why I'm looking for a long
fixture. Can a tube of battery powered LEDs, like you sometimes see in
decorations, provide enough light to illuminate the situation? Or do the
LEDs require house voltage to work?
