Pros: three lights in one, easy to use, lightweight, sheds light during a power failure
Cons: we feel it is a too bright for a nightlight
About four years ago I purchased five Sylvania Power Failure Led Lights. I purchased four as Christmas gifts and one for our home. The four for gifts were for my parents, my husband’s parents, my grandma and my husband’s grandparents. I thought this would make a great gift because it was three products in one. The Sylvania Power Failure Led Light is a nightlight, a flashlight and a source of light when the power fails. Everyone seemed pleased with their new gifts and all had them in place within days. It was interesting to see where each placed theirs. We put ours in our kitchen, my parents but theirs in their kitchen, my grandma put hers in her bedroom, hubby’s parents put theirs in their living room and his grandparents put theirs in their bathroom.
So the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light can be placed anywhere, anywhere you need light or may need light due to a power failure. We live in the mountains and experience numerous power failures year round. If it rains, we lose power, if it snows we lose power, if it is windy we lose power. OK I guess you get my point. Before purchasing the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light it was a hassle to find a flashlight in the dark once the power failed. With the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light, we do not have this problem. When the power fails, the light automatically comes on, illuminating our path.
The Sylvania Power Failure Led Light not only can be used as a light when the power fails, but it also doubles as a nightlight. Hubby’s grandparents are in their 80’s and use the light in the bathroom so when they get up in the middle of the night, they do not have to turn the light on to find their way to the bathroom.
The Led Light is compact, lightweight and easy to use. The light has a white base that has an on/off/auto switch. It has two prongs that plug into any outlet. The plug can also fold down into the base which is nice when you use the unit as a flashlight. The plug is not polarized which is nice so you can point the unit up or down. You can point it down to illuminate a hallway or up like we do in the kitchen. There is a clear cover that covers the three LED bulbs. The LED light stands about five inches tall. The unit utilizes 0.8 watts of energy.
The top portion of the unit is the nightlight which you can turn on/off. There is also a red light on the front of the unit which lets you know that the unit is plugged in. The bottom part of the unit is the flashlight and the power failure light.
To activate the flashlight, you would remove the unit from the wall and push the on button. When the unit is plugged in, the batteries will be charging so if you have a power failure, the light will still work.
If the unit is turned to auto and it is plugged in, the nightlight will come on automatically when the room is dark.
If you put the unit to off, the batteries will recharge but the nightlight or flashlight function will not work.
I purchased the Sylvania Power Failure Led Lights a few years ago for $9.99. I have seen them anywhere from $19.99 to $9.99 today so shop around if you are looking to purchase one. I bought my units at Wal-Mart but have seen them at home improvement stores and online.
I love that the unit is rechargeable and there are no batteries to change out. I always seem to have dead flashlights when the power goes out. I would have to search for batteries in the dark to get a flashlight to work. I don’t have that problem since purchasing the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light.
The Sylvania Power Failure Led Light holds a good charge. The batteries stay charged for over two hours.
The only problem I have with the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light is that I feel it is a bit bright to use as a nightlight in a bedroom. We did have ours in our bathroom for awhile but we had problems sleeping as the light was too bright. We then moved our unit to the kitchen where I knew we would not have a problem with the brightness.
I think the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light is a great product that everyone should have. My parents went out a bought a few more as they liked them so much.
I like that the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light is inexpensive and serves more than one purpose. Our Sylvania Power Failure Led Light has brightened our way during many power outages at our home and is still going strong.
If you are looking for a dual purpose light, we would highly recommend the Sylvania Power Failure Led Light.
