Battery Operated LED Night Lights for Power Outages

Question about availability of LED lights that work when power fails.

Q: "Can you recommend night lights or similar lights for when power fails? We've had several power outages recently from ice storms, snow and wind storms. At night, it's hard to find a flashlight to get to the bathroom or to check on a child. Motion activated LED lights would be my choice." Thanks. Diane.

Answer: I recomend you purchase the Lentek Koolatron LED Motion Sensor activated lights. These can also be used as tap lights. These motion sensor lights hang on the wall and operate on 2 D cell batteries. The light stays on for 15 seconds unless other motion is detected. You just push in the light to have it stay on longer.

Two lights come in a package. Each light case is 6 inches long by 3 to 4 inches wide. The LED light bulb sits in the center of a circular 3 inch frosted cover. The single 3V 800 mA adaptor lets you operate one light on electricity while the other is on guard with batteries. Hang on a nail using the hang hole in the top rear of each unit. For best motion activation, hang about 5 feet off the ground. You can set these to always on as well if you use AC power.

Hope you find these the right choice for lighting your indoor path at night.

Sincerely, Barbara
