A product of Telebrands, Light Angel is an “As Seen on TV” motion-activated LED light that can be placed virtually anywhere, and pivots to provide 360-degree illumination. The Light Angel claims to be weather-resistant, and to stick to any surface, whether inside or out.
Using a technologically advanced motion detector, the Light Angel will activate as soon as any motion is detected, and will remain lit for up to 60-seconds. If no motion is further detected, it will them turn itself off. With this in mind, the Light Angel is known as the “Guardian Angel” for your home, and claims to be ideal for any application where light is needed, including driveways, patios, closets, walkways, porches, pools, and more. Because of this, the unit is completely wireless, and features seven LED bulbs powered by four AA batteries that claim to last as long as 100,000 hours.

The motion detector doesn't work on my unit. The only way to turn it on is to change the angle. Since I want to put it above the door in a storage closet, I won't be able to use it.
Well, kinda OK, I guess...
I bought one at Home Depot locally for use in my feed shed, which has no electric power source. Had my son install it on the rafter (unfinished walls, it's just a feed shed for horse supplies) above the big trash cans where we store the grain. It is DIRECTLY above the center one. He installed it by using screws and mounting it. When the door is opened, it does come on...sorta. It's VERY dim, and has been since it was installed. There is only barely enough light to see what I am doing; possibly has to do with the fact that it's fairly high above the desired objective. I don't need much light to portion out grain in coffee cans, and it barely fills that need. Thinking about just running a heavy duty extension cord from the nearest outlet; that might work better.
Used as safety light in bedroom
Because neither my husband nor I are as steady walking as we used to be, I have placed these on the floor under the side of the bed. At night when I swing my feet over to get up, I no longer have to fumble around to find slippers or to move around. My husband will be coming home soon from five months in the hospital and I think this will provide invaluable safety as he learns to walk and navigate in a darkened room. This may not be the original intent of this product but it works great for the purpose that it was bought.
Dim light output, cheaply made, tried to direct light at an angle, finally used duct tape to secure the light since the product doesn't work as advertised. Don't waste your money. :(
Perfect Entrance lighting
We bought 1 to try for above the front staircase entrance to house. I didn't like running regular lights for hours when coming home on late night shifts at work. We live in the middle of 2-3 acres of trees so it gets very dark. We tried it above the front entrance stairs & it was perfect. It's been going for 6 months on the same batteries so far. It works so well that we got one for stairs off porch for our deck and for above the door for my husband's workshop. I highly recommend this.
This light works exactly like I expected it to work. It is very bright. Not sure why the complaints other than user error or too high expectations for a $12 light.
Not the Angel I was hoping for.
Bought one for the bedroom and it works perfectly as advertised. Bought another one for the back porch. I quit working within days, even with changing the batteries, nothing. Since the first one worked well, I took the 2nd one back and exchanged it. Same problem. Worked initially, but after a couple days outdoors quit working at all. I would advise to buy for indoor use only.
I love it works great for me
I do not know why everyone has had such bad experiences but I purchased my light angels from a local store here in FL. They are both placed outside. One is by the front door and the other one in the back at my patio. They are very bright and do not stay on for very long. They save me a lot of money on my electric bills.
The light angel is a handy outside light.
The cost of batteries far out weighs the item. I suggest that LIGHT ANGEL charge a higher outgoing cost and supply a re-charger to over ride the monthly cost of AA batteries.
Don't buy through the TV, buy in-store.
I have purchased 3 Light Angel units at my local store.. They are wonderful and work at any motion. Great for closets or even a bathroom at night. I would not recommend the TV ad type as they seem to be ineffective. I love mine. Bought 2 at Pep Boys and another one at another store but I don't remember which one.
Purchased this after seeing it on TV. Last week I decided to change the batteries and the area had a little water in the cavity. This was installed under the overhang at my backdoor so no water should be getting into the light. Dried it out, installed new batteries and you guessed it, it no longer works. Of course the 30 days is up and not worth returning with the shipping and handling charges that I would incur. This is just yet another scam.
