SnapPower Guidelight {#Review} Making Bedtime For My Little One Easier! #GiftGuide2014

Do any of you have a child that is scared of the dark? I do. Lydia is 8 years old and she is scared of the dark. I am 25 years old and I am still scared of the dark on occasion. Recently I was introduced to a product that I am completely in love with! The SnapRays Guidelight is a plug-and-play replacement for the standard plug-in night lights and hardwired guide lights found on the market today; it installs within seconds and requires no wires or batteries. 
They are available in two different style and three different colors. I chose the Duplex style because that is what my plugs are at the moment. I also chose white  because it fits the place.
 Using the product is pretty simple. You need to turn off the power to the room you want to install these in FIRST. Remove the existing cover plate and snap on the SnapRays Guidelight.
The Guidelight has prongs on it that clip around the outlet screws. The prongs HAVE to touch these screws to work. Make sure that nothing is in the way.The screw terminals have to be exposed. If paint or tape is on the outlet, they won't work. FUN FACT: LEDs in the Guidelight will last for 25+ years before they begin to dim AND they only cost 10 cents a year to operate! WHAT?!
The SnapRays Guidelight is designed to be installed facing the same direction as the ground prongs on the outlet.  For example: If the ground prongs on the outlet are facing down, the Guidelight will need to be installed with the lights facing down. If the ground prongs are facing up, then the Guidelight will need to be installed with the lights facing up. They are not comparable with GFCI outlets. I honestly have to tell you, this is GENIUS. I love it! I would have never thought of such a thing before! They only emit 6 lux of light! It is the same as a standard nightlight! Please keep in mind these only light up at night. These would be great in hallways too!

I have two of these in Lydia's room and one in my kitchen and one behind my couch so that we can see out laptop cord when we get it at night. Currently you can only purchase these on their website! They are $15 a piece but you can buy them in 1, 3, 5, and 10 packs. Prices vary. Check out their website via the link in this post to learn more! A pack of these would make a great stocking stuffer or gift this Holiday Season! I recommend it for my gift guide this year!

  1. I would love to try these in my daughter's room! She is starting to tell me she is afraid of the dark, though I think she is just trying to stay awake longer! I love how subtle they are and how they only turn on at night automatically.
