Currently £11.49 delivered on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008VB4TNO/?tag=mhf04-21
With just a simple modification - it is quite malleable aluminium - we have bent over the back section to enable it to be hooked into the grille on the panel just below the awning - see photos attached. We attach this on arrival at site & detach for travelling - it is very effective & lights on on opening the hab door (good position on our Chausson), when approaching the motorhome & when moving around outside. Only downside is if it is under an extended awning it loses charge after a couple of days but soon remedied by putting in the sun for a few hours:) If you don't have a grille in a suitable place then probably not much use (unless you can think of another removeable weatherproof method of attaching the light?) but may be great for those that do!

At that price :)could buy 2 & have spare one charging up or give one to a friend?!
Might be worth checking that the cheaper one is aluminium as although the photos look similiar if it is steel it could be heavier (more potential risk of damage to the grille) & more difficult to bend?
