"Boring", I hear you call. "Not another light", you bellow. But wait, because this is genuinely useful and 'bides within the realm of Whatever Works perfectly.

Out in the countryside, dark really is dark! So it's a light. Simple. Runs on 3 AA's and can be hung on a wall with the supplied sticky pad or screws. I found that the screws were a bit rubbish and don't trust stick pads outside so ended up using nails in the thick wood of my shed.

You can set it to be on, off or use a darkness/movement sensor to make sure that it only comes on when it's dark and you walk near it. Works perfectly every time. Stays on after movement ceases for 40 seconds, then off.

Not long had it in place, so can't report on battery life, nor the fact that it's not weather resistant. No doubt once the rain gets to it, it'll be done for. But clever bods could build it a mini-porch or make sure it's sheltered. But really at this price, if it does a year it's worth it.

The light given off is just right in terms of illumination, especially if it were mounted in a larder or cupboard, but I'm happy with it mounted on the shed so that when I approach I can see what I'm doing without stumbling around and ending bottoms up on the concrete!
