Like you, I'm a morning person, unless I'm up 1/2 the night for some reason.
I have a battery-run bulb that I like. If plugged in, it runs forever, but when there's no power on, it runs about 4 hours. They came in a set. 1/2 are bright 'blue' looking lights. Those bother my eyes. Mostly Dh uses them where he needs to do things.
The other half are very nice. They have a yellow hue, like incandescent bulbs.
But, our flashlights are bright. Startlingly bright. Great if something needs to be found or seen, but a bit much if you just want to look at the time or temperature. I used to have 'regular, old fashioned' flashlights, but I don't see them much anymore, and they are larger than these.
My candle-type lights never made it up here. Yours sound good.
Apparently, a good schedule is important.
