Lamps and Slang in the 70's

Well, more like late 70's early 80's. How common would a battery-run electric lamp be? As opposed to a gas lamp? How expensive? (The characters in question are not particularly rich, but I don't want them burning the house down either.)

Edit: The reason for the lamps being that the characters are tossing a party in a 'haunted house,' which is old, and hasn't been paying any electric bills for the past ... who knows how long.

Also, what would be some common slang terms from the era? I have SOME ideas, but I could always be wrong. Preferably terms that would be tossed around casually, and frequently.
