Work is work on any continent. LED's are the best choice no matter where you get the energy. One of those cheap shake lights or one of the wind up gyro type with supper cap work for up to a minute if really wound up. So a 20 lb bag would seem to provide more if geared correctly. A mechanism like a giant grandfather clock with bigger weight would seem to be a good solution. Easily. if convientently located next to the recliner is the pull chain for the counter weight would allow one to keep reading that book you just cant put down!

Rather than just a light, include a cell phone (USB)charger station. If you make a means to autoload the next 20lb sack, you can store up your weights for longer operation. concievably for many hours. Include a quick stop start pin when it is time to go to sleep. pull pin in morning have light to wake up by.

Light by developed coutries with infrastructure like distributed power is not the same as the needs and level of lumins people in developing countries need. this is the wrong comparison. Think camping... On the other end of the spectrum is zero light. No real windows perhaps... there is this reality, Any light is better than no light.
