Default Best Night Light design I've seen (video)

We have a couple nightlight by our stairs, one in the kitchen, and have always been looking for better solutions to lights that burn out, or dim, or are bulky, etc.

This is a nightlight that is integrated into the switch plate cover. They are available for duplex and Decora style covers. Appear to install in seconds without wires because a clip comes into contact with the outlet terminals behind the cover.

I think I might buy a few.

Interesting. Wonder how bright they are. If you get some, please provide a review.

We're using these. A cradle plugs into the receptacle and a flashlight slides into the cradle. The flashlight also acts as a nightlight.
Here's the amazon link but we got them cheaper at Costco.

Won't take long for China to make and sell these for a $1 a piece.

I would be concerned they could short out.

I like those, but you'd better hope the electrician that wired your house did not wrap electrical tape around the outlet screws for an extra margin of safety. Generally, that is done only with metal boxes, but old habits can be hard to break.

Thanx for posting that Bob, I may look into those.
