I have to have a smoke alarm check in the building I have a 2 plants in, they don't need access to the room the tents are in, but they want to kill the mains power to check the alarms, which is obviously bad.

One plant is about a 5 weeks old, still in veg, the other is in week 4 of flower. I expect the power to be off for a maximum of 15-20 minutes. Will this be that much of an issue? It will throw my timers off which is annoying, but will something like this be enough to stop the plant from detecting dark for the short period the power will be off? https://www.lights4fun.co.uk/i/q/LL141705/3-warm-white-zap-led-battery-push-lights

It doesn't say how powerful the lights are but they're only for stopping complete darkness, and battery operated being the main thing.

The other option is opening all zips on the tents and opening the curtains to let a small amount of daylight through the window, although I'm not keen on this for obvious reasons.

I wouldn't worry about it. Summer storms can block out the sun for a few days and plants always do fine. You're plant will still be converting stored sugars into usable sugars for growth, without the use of light.

It's a good idea, but if stealth was my goal, then I would let them stay in the dark. They can go 24hr or more without light and be fine. If they can't then something was wrong with them before all this

Bumping this because I now have a new problem. My ceiling is leaking and will most likely result in the power being cut to repair it.

What is the absolute cheapest form of battery powered lights needed to keep a plant alive?

Yeah, interrupting the light period with darkness is fine up to a day or so. Its the interrupting the dark period with light (especially when flowering) that'll fuck things up for you.
