Unfortunately, we all have those nights that we have to get out of bed and all we can see is darkness. We cannot count the number of times we've gotten up suddenly and turned on the bedroom light &mdash blinding our sleeping significant other.
Besides blinding our significant other, there have also been plenty of times we had to make a mid-night run to the bathroom and went in the dark for fear of blinding ourselves! We aren't huge fans of night lights because they can be super wasteful if you never end up getting out of bed. We found the Philips GuideLight
and we were really intrigued. It's surprisingly a real product, not a concept like we had initially thought.
The Philips GuideLight uses LED's to illuminate the light. There are several benefits to this &mdash one charge will last the entire night, LED's are cool to the touch and the way they are positioned in the light allow them to illuminate a room as opposed to serving as a spotlight. To keep the GuideLight up and running, the use of the included induction charger is needed.
One of the best features of the light is the motion detecter. The light will stay on until no movement is detected for 20 seconds or more. So, if you're carrying it around on your finger, or have it hanging in the bathroom while you're in there &mdash it will stay on. As soon as you set it down or leave the bathroom &mdash it will turn off. While on the induction charger, the GuideLight will turn on when there's a power outage due to a safety light feature.
For easy carrying and hanging in rooms, the light has a hook-like handle on the top. Think of this as a modern day lantern or a less harsh flash light.
The Philips GuideLight is available through Amazon for $22.
