We needed this for my elderly mother so she can see the hallway when getting up in the middle of the night. It's the right amount of light for a nightlight without being too bright. I like the hook which we use on a closet door and no installation is required. It's also great that it has an off switch so it doesn't have to go on and off all day when you don't need it - just turn it to "auto" at bed time and it's good to go. I put rechargable batteries in so I'll see how that works out.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, has on-off switch, battery operated
When our 3 year old started to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, we needed a light that she could work since the light switch in the bathroom is too high for her to reach and there is not a power outlet in the room. We bought 2 of these to try in the hallway (also no outlet) and bathroom. After a couple of weeks, we decided to buy 3 more for our living room, second bath, and kitchen. The sensor works about 12-15 feet away and is sensitive enough that our 18 month old will trigger it (when it is placed about door handle height or lower).
The motion sensor works well to turn on the light and the light output is sufficient for night access. The light sensor usually prevents activation if the room is well light however if it activates it will not turn off immediately if other lighting is turned on when the light is activated. That's not a big deal but might shorten battery life a little unnecessarily.
first purchased on for myself for dark hallway at night and found it to be excellent since then have purchased 5 additional ones for elderly relatives who need a safety light but not all the time. When light is in motion sensor it stays on long enough that you don't have a fear of it going out before you get to your destination. The light is very bright and has a good range. It has 3 modes motion sensor mode, stays on like a flashlight and has an off position. Very convenient can be attached to a wall or comes with a hander that lets you hang it on a door knob. Best thing I have ever found. Would recommend it to anyone.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Unique, High Quality of Material, Fast / Speed, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Have now bought 4 of these neat little night lights that come on only when they sense movement. Placed one on the bathroom vanity, one in the kitchen/dining room, gave one as a gift and now deciding where to put the fourth. Only $9.99 each. Look nice and give just the right amount of light to show the way. Turn off automatically after 20-30 seconds when no movement is sensed. Put batteries in, set the light on automatic and you're ready to go. Highly recommend. Great value for the price.
Pros: Functional, Well Made, Looks Great, Nice Design, Easy to Use, simple set-up
This is just what I needed. I needed a nightlight for the bathroom for the cats (no windows in the bathroom) and this was perfect. I am saving on electricity and batteries since it is motion activated and only lights up when someone enters the room. It also has a setting to keep the light on should you choose. You can hang it on a doorknob (it comes with a hook) or place it on a table. I plan to purchase more for the rest of the house in the future. Also, my local Home Depot didn't actually carry it, but I ordered it online and was able to pick it up at the store. Pretty cool.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
The lights worked well, but of the four, the attachment hook broke on one (as I tried to make it stick better) and the motion sensor broke on one. One got stolen, but can't blame the manufacturer for that! We needed to use adhesive or duct tape to hold the hooks on, but I would buy them again.
These lights are very sensitive and can pick up movement from about 15 feet away. They are bright enough to see clearly when moving around but not too bright if you have to get up in the middle of the night.
Having the hangar handles make this useful in many room and you do not need to have a outlet attached to it. Baby friendly to keep out of reach!
I was looking for a motion-sensored light for my hallway. It is made with a doorknob hook, so no installation is required (all you need is 3 AA batteries). It is so nice to walk by and the light clicks on just as I reach the dark spot in my hallway. I love this product.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Eco-Friendly, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
This auto-light is wonderful. It takes up little room and does a decent job of providing light in small areas. It will not, however, light up a large area with much light. As a night light it would be perfect. It works very well and is simple to set up, or hang on a wall.
You have to be moving at a moderate or quick pace for the motion detection to light it up. If you move slowly, it seems to be temperamental. It does give off a decent amount of light when lit. Not sure whether I would recommend this, although for the price, it works okay.
This light is easy to set up, works well in a bathroom where there are no outlets for a regular night light. Bright enough to prevent stubbed toes, not so bright to wake you so you can't go back to sleep.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight
I have had them for about 3 weeks now and they are working great, I don't know how long the batteries or non-replaceable bulb will last but so far so good. The best part about these lights are you don't have to be right on top of them for them to turn on.

Review 18 for Motion Activated LED Porta-Light
Worked great at first, then stopped working...

Ease of installation
No, I do not recommend this product.
Bought one and loved it at first... we used it to illuminate a path (hallway etc) for my toddler when she left her bed and came running to ours in the middle of the night. Since it was easily portable, we brought it to the grandparents houses for the same purpose...but after less than 6 months it just stopped working. Now, I can't even turn the light on with the switch, let alone have the motion sensor work...worthless now.
I was very disappointed upon receiving these LED Porta-lights. They were very small in appearance. When I put the batteries in them, my sense was that my cell phone gives off more light (it truly does). These do not at all light up any amount of space. they barely light up an object enough to see it in the otherwise dark. One remains unopened and will probably remain that way. Sorry, but a complete disappointment.
I bought this light for above the bathroom door at night. Easy to install and works great. The timing for the light staying on is perfect. I truly appreciated it after superstorm sandy when we lost power. I'm even going to buy more. Well worth the money.
