Essential Info

An Ordinary nightlight simply offers a bit of comfort in the dark, but what do you so when the power goes out and you lose your nightlight? The 2nd Generation Sylvania LED Power Failure Light does much more, it operates as a standard nightlight and using a built-in rechargeable battery, it will remain lit even when the power fails. Additionally, the light can be removed from the outlet and used as a flashlight. Once the device has been plugged in, the built-in rechargeable battery will begin to charge. A photocell will activate the nightlight only in the dark so it doesn't drain energy throughout the day. If you should lose power, the LED will flash and the rechargeable battery will kick in for up to seven hours of use. The light can be removed from the outlet and used as a flashlight; an On/Off button and retractable plug are present for added convenience. The light is perfect for any room, the hallway, stairway, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, garage and attic. This Power Failure Light is a home safety product that gives you a reliable light source and continued peace of mind for everyday and emergency use.

    This is an excellent modern-day replacement for old-fashioned night lights.
    DENNIS -- hedgesville, WV   4/1/2013
    Low profile, bright, only takes up one outlet.

    I bought two for some friends, one has continued to work successfully, the other has had problems as it's middle light now flickers instead of remaining lit up when it has been turned on. We have had them for just over a year.
    MICHAEL -- buford, GA   6/29/2012
    A really neat device. Affordable and works well. I bought 4 and one died one day 2 or 3 of using it which was unfortunate, but the ones that work have continued working perfectly for weeks now. Overall, I highly recommend this product as they are really handy.
    This Ain't No Disco.... -- Deep in the heart...   6/1/2012
    The functionality is ill thought out.... when the power goes out the LED starts flashing??? This seems a bit silly as when the power goes out I would prefer some emergency lighting as opposed to a Disco Strobe Light. This was intended for an elderly person's home, but the flashing in the event of a power loss will in my opinion only cause more confusion in an already confusing situation.
    MARTIN -- carmel, CA   1/5/2012
    Stylish, functional and reliable. Works perfectly. I now own and am using 6 of them.
    KARL -- bellingham, WA   11/2/2011
    This product is a fine design which seems to be considerably more attractive than the latest version. I should have bought more to give my friends.
    LIN -- torrance, CA   10/17/2011
    good seller
    ROBERT E -- northbrook, IL   8/18/2011
    I ordered 4 units. After roughly one month, two failed. I am waiting for the other two to fail. I understand that there is a certain level of failure to be expected, but 50% seems high.
    BENEDETTA S. -- avon, CT   8/8/2011
    These are the best power failure flahlights I have found. The features I love most: Their slim profile means you hardly see them and my kids don't bang into the ones I place along hallways. The night light feature is great for navigating through the house in the dark. They last for years and have always worked when the power went out. Great product.
    CAROL -- austin, TX   6/13/2011
    I had purchased one of these years ago, but it was no longer in stock when I went back for more because I loved it so much. How excited was I to find them on Smarthome. These are sharp looking, are flush to the wall, and the one that I did have is still working great after 6 years.
    JAMES S -- middletown, MO   5/6/2011
    Items are just as described. With all the spring storms we have lots of little power outages. The boys love having these in their rooms. Greatly reduces their storm anxiety. Always charged, always ready and easy to find in an outage.
    BARBARA -- milford, DE   2/18/2011
    My husband is an electrician and says these lights were just what he wanted.
    MARVIN -- calabasas, CA   2/17/2011
    Nicely engineered product and very easy to use. Much better than generation I.
    PAUL AND ERICA -- palmyra, NY   1/30/2011
    Took two or three tries to get a working light. It's great if you get a working one, but Sylvania obviously has quality control issues.
    PAUL AND ERICA -- palmyra, NY   1/8/2011
    Fourth time was the charm for getting a working light. The light's great, but Sylvania obviously has some quality control issues.
    ERNEST -- chatham, NJ   1/4/2011
    I have used these in the past, and so I ordered 10 more, primarily as Christmas stocking stuffers. Unfortunately, 8 of 10 did not work (did not light up under any circumstance). The prior orders all worked perfectly. Looks like quality control problems here; hope they get it fixed. These are neat compact units, great night light, emergency flashlight, power failure light. I'll give 5 stars to those that work; Smarthome stands in back of their sales with a 30 day return for defective units.
    JAMES R. -- rockville, MD   1/3/2011
    The light sensor is very sensitive. It goes on immediately when there is no light in the room, and goes off just as fast when light is there. My one complaint is that it doesn't function well in a power failure. It blinks, but doesn't provide a constant light.
    MARY -- chelsea, MI   12/10/2010
    these came in a timely fashion - they look good- are a present for my sister
    JAMES R. -- rockville, MD   12/9/2010
    The unit is very attractive and emits a very bright but pleasant light.
