Good Range, Good Sensitivity, Right Price, Bright LED
on March 28, 2015
I bought it on amazon.com since they had a deal of the day going on and it cheaper even factoring in the shipping and duties than the ones we get at the amazon.ca site! Anyways, they are both the same and i thought i'd share my experiences with other so far with using these lights.
Good - This Mr Beams MB 723 is by far the best for lighting up pathways. Design is simple and robust, easily removed for portability, no reflective cover, no direct eye-contact with LED, wide-angle detection range(about 160 degrees), and has an active sensor (meaning it won't leave you in darkness until you're out of range and will only shut off 30 seconds thereafter). Although rated for 1.5V rechargeable batteries (1.2V) works just fine.
Caution - This nightlight requiring 4 x AA batteries. If you hate making holes in wall, i strongly suggest using the 3M damage-free adhesive which I've been happily using.
Conclusion - For its purpose, this nightlight is a great design. Not meant to compare with overhead or directional models. Hence, I've rated this 4 stars. Comparing this with my dozens of nightlight, it is brighter than all of them (both battery and electrical operated). All 3 works out-of-the-box as advertised.
