This is an automatic LED nightlight. It turns itself on at dusk, and off at dawn; using a CdS photocell on the front of the light.

It comes in a white case with a transparent cylinder above that.

Note: Feit Electric has no affiliation whatsoever with Technology Associates; makers of the EternaLight LED flashlights. The name "EternaLite" given to this nightlight is probably just a coincidence, and should be ignored.


 SIZE



The nightlight is ready to use as soon as you cut it out of the package. Remove it from the package by slitting down the side with a knife or a pair of scissors, and then remove the nightlight.
Then, to borrow a phrase from a TV commercial, "plug it in, plug it in!"



Since this product is designed to be operated from 110-120VAC, this section can be skipped.



This is an LED nightlight, not a flashlight. So I won't slam it against a steel rod, try to drown it in the john, stomp on it, run over it, or subject it to other indecencies that a flashlight might be subject to.

The nightlight is probably not very water-resistant, but it should have some minor degree of splash-resistance. So if you plug it in near a tub (in a GFCI outlet), I don't think a few drops of water splashed onto it will do it any harm.

It should also be able to withstand a short drop to the floor, but I don't believe it is TOO durable. So please try not to step on it if you find it on the floor; it probably wouldn't like that very well.

The nightlight is equipped with a CdS (cadmium sulfide) photocell, so it turns itself on after dark and turns itself off when the sun comes up.

You'll need to plug the nightlight in a polarised receptacle; as it has one blade of its AC prongs slightly wider than the other. It is designed to operate at 110-120 volts AC at 60Hz, which is the standard household electricity in United States households.

The nightlight has one white LED in it near the base. This LED is shone into a diffusing tube in the center, and the resulting light is further diffused by a faceted, clear plastic cylinder around the outside.

I received another LED nightlight very, very similar to this (only missing the markings on its front and missing the packaging); something I received as a "freebie" with another flashlight purchase on ebay from about a month ago (03-11-04). I'm pretty certain now that it is a Feit EternaLite LED nightlight. The product has a holographic "UL Listed" tag on it, and according to the embossing near the AC prongs, requires 120VAC 60Hz and consumes 0.25 watt.

The nightlight on this page has the UL holographic sticker on it, but the power requirement/usage ratings are not embossed anywhere on it.

Since this is a nightlight with a set purpose, I don't have a whole lot more to say about it.

Never mind the Christmas light set you can see in this picture.
Do note though, that the nightlight is aiming 90 to the left here.
In most household outlets, the nightlight will aim straight up & down.
