Why do I need this?

Nightlights aren't just for kids. They're a practical gadget that helps you to safely roam your home at night, without walking into walls or knocking over tables. These sleek plug-ins are so versatile that they work in dark hallways, bedrooms, kitchens — even closets — giving you just the right amount of light to guide your steps, but not so much that they'll distract you or interrupt your sleep.

The standout feature of these slim LEDs is their auto on/off function. Their built-in light sensors detect surrounding light intensity, automatically illuminating at night and turning off during the day. There's no technical setup or learning curve with these. No need to pair them with Bluetooth or connect them to Alexa or Google Home. Just plug them into a wall outlet and let them do their thing. Simplicity never looked so sweet.

Reviewers say the light they emit is neither too bright nor too dim — just the right amount of glow to keep you from stumbling at night while you go from room to room. Plus, they're energy-efficient thanks to their dusk-to-dawn sensor. With this feature, the brightness changes according to ambient light, so the darker the room, the brighter the nightlight will be — and vice versa.

What reviewers say:

With over 2,000 five-star reviews, it's no surprise that these nightlights are an Amazon favorite. As expected, shoppers love these because they keep them from stubbing their toes and walking into walls during late-night bathroom runs.

"These worked perfectly," said another enlightened customer. praised these slim lights for being They cast a decent amount of light without being obtrusive.

If you're concerned that these may become too bright and distracting for your space, one honest reviewer tested them out and found that they provide the perfect balance. "These immediately detect when the overhead lights shut on and off, and they keep everything pretty well-lit," the shopper said. "They are not super bright at all, and the color is not overwhelming. It's a very calm warm color."

Several shoppers also love that they're just a simple, no-frills solution to overwhelming darkness. One reviewer was so impressed that they bought more in bulk. "I've already bought around 10 of these for my house HAHA!" the impressed shopper admitted. "I really, really like them... They dim and brighten almost instantly too, which I like."

While several shoppers said they have absolutely no cons for these simple night lights, some mentioned that they wished the other colors (like the one pictured below) were also on sale for Prime members and weren't twice as expensive as the warmer hue above.

This is one of four additional light colors available. Though not on sale, these come in a two-pack, so you're technically spending just $7.50 a pop.
