DigiTronics 'Starbright' LED Nightlight
Manufactured by Digitronics (No URL known)
Last updated 05-30-09

The StarBright nightlight is like no nightlight you've ever seen before. It has 48 LEDs on a round white platform, and it's powered by a "wall wart" type power supply attached to the platform.

You plug it into a wall outlet like any other "wall wart" transformer, and there are no wires for the rat to chew or for you to get zapped on. Just light, coming from the star-shaped array of LEDs on it.


The StarBright is ready to use as soon as you receive it.
Just plug it into any standard 120VAC outlet, and let it light up dark hallways, dark cans, dark kitchens, or any other dark spaces where you need a little light.

The StarBright might be a bit too bright to have next to your bed, but you'll just have to try it there to be sure.

Since this product is designed to run from 120VAC household power (120VAC 6 watts), this section will be skipped.

Most people who buy nightlights tend to take care of them, so I won't beat the StarBright against a steel rod or try to drown it in the toilet.

If it's dropped, there's a chance it could break off the transformer (that black thing with the laser hologram on one side and the two metal prongs on the other), but if you drop a regular nightlight, you'll probably bust the bulb. And you probably shouldn't throw a regular nightlight in the crapper either. :-P

The StarBright is large, as nightlights go. And that wall wart power supply doesn't make it any smaller. :-O
It also blocks the second outlet in a two-outlet receptacle, so you can't have anything else plugged in where a StarBright is going. Having an empty outlet handy is necessary for a StarBright to function in it.

I find it plenty bright enough to find my commode at night with it in the bathroom, and I can tell whether the seat is up or down too. I think it's a bit too bright to use in the bedroom, but your results may vary. Most of the light is projected on the wall facing the StarBright; though some light comes out the sides and illuminates things to the nightlight's sides.

Test unit was received earlier this year (I'm guessing January or February 2003), and has been in my bathroom since that time instead of the Sauce LightOrb that used to be in that spot. I have not seen any degredation or had a failure during this time. (If I do, it'll be on this page!)

Unit is available from DigiTronics, at the following address:

UPDATE: 07-06-03
I still haven't blown up the Starbright LED Nightlight that I was sent to review. I finally plugged a Sauce LightOrb back in that socket, so I need to find another one to fit the Starbright. I'm reviewing the LightOrb (and it's an LED nightlight) too, so I really do need to find another outlet for one of them. :-O

Because it's so large and so bright, I'll have to give it FOUR stars, not five. Four stars is still nothing to cry about though, as that rating is still quite high.

LEDs should last much, much longer than regular bulbs.
Never change a battery or a bulb.

Some users may find it too large (it does block two plug-ins).
Some users may find it too bright.
