This is more of a "lantern" than a "night light." It's about a foot tall, and very bright at max brightness. Even at its dimmest setting, it puts out more light than anyone needs in a nightlight. I don't think these are negatives, but it's important to know what you're getting.
This is more of a "lantern" than a "night light." It's about a foot tall, and very bright at max brightness. Even at its dimmest setting, it puts out more light than anyone needs in a nightlight. I don't think these are negatives, but it's important to know what you're getting. From the picture and the name "night light," I expected this to be about 6 inches tall and maybe 3 inches across. At that size it would be a perfect thing to carry if you needed some light when getting up to get some water or go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Like how people carry candles in little stands in old movies. But this is about 12 inches tall and 4-5 inches across. It puts out a ton of light. It is much better suited to be a camping lantern. It would be perfect for lighting a tent or guiding you on a night hike. So just know what you're getting. Construction wise, it's nicely built and feels sturdy. The faux-wood finish is nice enough if not totally believable. The capacitive metal button on the top is nicely machined and feels good to touch. The handle feels sturdy enough not to break even after a lot of use. I do like that the handle folds down below the top to allow for slightly easier storage. The light is controlled by a touch sensitive button on the top which I found to be nicely responsive to touch. Touch quickly to turn on/off, hold the button down to increase or decrease brightness. It's a very nice shade of LED, not the blinding white that some LED lanterns have. The dimmer you set it, the nicer the color looks, but even at max brightness, it's a nice shade. Overall, a nice lantern if you want a lantern. If you want a night light, it's probably too big. I'm guessing they'll put out a smaller version soon which would fill the night light need.
