FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Maxxima MLN-10-4 LED Nightlight Save The Planet

I do not like running into things.  Since I can’t see in the dark, I am a believer in nightlights.   I am of an age where I am frequently up during the night.   Stumbling around is counterproductive to healthy toes.   Walks in the dark lead to cracked elbows, throbbing stubbed toes and immoderate speech therefore I use nightlights.

I found these nightlights on Amazon and they were priced aggressively at $12.99 with free shipping on orders of $25.00.   There were a variety of ratings and reviews.   They provide adequate light.  The light they provide is bluish in color.   One complaint was they are flimsy in construction.   They are a bit flimsy but once you plug it in, who cares?  You aren’t going to be handling it.   You do need to firmly plug them in.   They do not easily seat themselves, you need to give them a good push.   They have a light sensor which turns them off when there is light in the room and on when it is dark.   They also have a swivel head that allows you to direct the light which is a very positive feature. 

The light bulb is an LED that the manufacturer claims uses 90% less electricity than an incandescent bulb of similar lighting.   My four 7 Watt incandescent light bulbs used 28 watts of electricity.  Replacing them reduced the use of electricity to 2.8 watts.   I am sure I will NOT see a change in my electric bill.   However if 10,000 people changed four 7 watt nightlights to LED it would save 252,000 watts of electricity.   That is an astounding savings of our resources.  

I don’t expect you to jump on the computer and buy new nightlights but when and if you need them, might I suggest that you consider your environment and save some electricity.

I received no compensation for this post.  I purchased the nightlights, they were not given to me to review.    

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
