Glow Night Light, retail $5.99 (

Last updated 08-27-10

This is an electroluminescent (EL) nightlight. It comes in a square white plastic body, and emits a green glow when it is plugged into a live outlet furnishing 110 to 130 volts AC at 60Hz.

I was not able to find this product on the Larry's Market website, which is why I do not have a URL for you.


The nightlight is ready to use as soon as you remove it from the package. Remove it from the package by peeling away one corner of the plastic bubble on the front of the package, 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 on a 110 to 130 volts AC 60Hz circuit, I don't have to tell you how to change batteries in it or tell you which part to kick into the woods.

This product is a nightlight with a set purpose (to function as - what else - a nightlight), not a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused; so I won't whap it against a steel rod or the corner of a concrete stair, try to drown it in a toilet bowl, cistern, shower, garbage can full of water, or sink; stomp on it, run over it, or inflict other punishments upon it that might be inflicted upon a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight. So this section will be rather short.

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.

This product must be used on an AC circuit; it will not glow on DC, regardless of polarity.

It is ***CONSIDERABLY** less bright in real life than this photograph depicts.
The light is also ***NOT WHITE*** as shown in this photograph; it is a green color.

Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
