Automatic Night Light - £1 at Poundland (£5+ in Tesco etc)

17
Found 4th May 2015
Picked mine up from Tesco for £5 (down from £7-something). Now I see almost a carbon copy in Poundland.

Tons on the peg. Given them a bash and so far, seem to be just as responsive and equally as bright.

good product but need to be used somewhere in direct sunlight as I've found my hallway doesn't get bright enough so it always stays on. great for a quid tho.

I'm told they cost around 2p a week to run, so my landing is the same, especially murky days, but it's not harsh and it's a pleasant brightness. Chuffed.

Something that's a pound in a pound store - not exactly a deal... Also what store - never seen them in my local (Newtownabbey). I take it these are the filament light bulb variety? 2p a week? I suppose it depends how frequently they are on and how much you are charged for your electricity....

A goooooood few couple of interesting points u kinda raise there too by the way .. I half wouldn't mind knowing the answers to some of them myself too?, to be honest with u .....

I've personally seen these a few times in Ilford Poundland though? (i've no idea if that will somehow help u though?, but ..... ) lol.

i saw these a month ago in poundland Birmingham but never in my local one in hackney london

Do these work straight away? Just picked one up and plugged it in a dark room and nothing?

I got 1 yesterday worked straight away thanks

Cheap Chinese 240v lights with hot bulbs in them - what could possibly go wrong?

Yep total junk..

I bought one and found it a perfect night light to use in a dark room which has a baby...worked first time.
Use and throw especially now that i know it costs 2p a week to run...might buy a few more to put in other rooms.

Seems to have been stocked before:

If this is still the 7watt job then 2p a week would be based on it not being on more than 4 hours a day.
(7watt x 4 hours x 7) = 0.196kWh
Assume 12p/kWh, cost = 2.35p

​where's you phone made? or better where is your "expensive" lights made?

Also by the way, they are "hot lamps" as bulbs grow in gardens.
