The answer: Pretty much the greatest things ever created! Smoons are solar powered, can be used cordless or plugged in, are sensitive (simply touch them to turn them on or off) and are waterproof. Does it get any better than this?
Smoons can be found fairly easily on the east and west coasts, but are in limited supply around here. Hopefully some of the local rental companies will begin carrying them soon!
