Let there be Light – iTLTL’s Creative LED Desk Lamp & Night Light

Standard

Lighting is an important feature for any home. I’m not talking about just regular overhead lighting, or even regular table lamps. One should always be prepared for emergencies, or just plain unplugged, fun. This Creative LED Desk Lamp & Night Light from iTLTL, fits into that category. This portable light can be used both plugged in, or plug free. It arrives with a USB power cord. So, first thing, charge it up. You will have to provide your own adapter.

You can use it plugged in, or without, once it’s charged up. It doesn’t take long to charge enough to use it without the USB cord. I received the pale yellow lamp, but they have it in all white, too. It is such a simple light to operate, but it is very useful. I was a tad skeptical when I first pulled it out of the box. It seemed too lightweight, which was equivalent to being cheap, in my mind. I was quite wrong, and I am happy I was. With this light being so lightweight, it can easily be used for camping. If you used your own clip or cord, you could easily hang this from a tree, or from your tent. I weighed the lamp, and it only weighs 0.4lbs. One pound equals 16 ounces, so this light only weighs 6.4 ounces. Definitely light enough to pack out with. Another lightweight aspect of this light, is the power it uses. It only uses 2W of power. You really can’t go wrong with LEDs nowadays.

This light does not get hot to the touch when in use, at all. So, it is safe to have around your children and pets. This is a 3-function light. You can have the base illuminate like a lantern. You can use it as a desk type lamp, and you can dim the light to your desired brightness, in both settings. On the top of the light, there is a turn nob. You just turn it to your desired brightness, that’s it. When used as a lamp, just unhook, and pull up the arm. There is a diffuser on the LEDs, so it is eye friendly. This part gets only slightly warm to the touch. The head of the lamp is actually the light source for the entire light. When the arm is in the down position, the LED side rests flat against the body, which is the lantern portion. It illuminates the entire base as the lantern, when turned on. This design is what keeps it so lightweight, and portable. On the lowest setting the light can last around 40 hours on one charge.

My youngest has a real fear when it comes to the dark. So, we like to be prepared in our home for any power outages. We also, always, travel with a backup light source. We have been in a hotel before, where the power went out for a bit. Boy, did those backup light sources come in handy for us. This one will definitely be one we take on vacation this year. I love that it can stand on its’ own as both a lantern, and a desk lamp. It really makes it so much more useable than a regular flashlight. The neck of the lamp is very bendable, so you can really position task oriented light, really well. But, since it clips into the base firmly, it then becomes a great handle to both hang it, and carry it from. We are overall, realy pleased with this product.

I received this as a sample, but all opinions are honest and my own.

The safe way to have candle light. – Top Race’s LED Color Changing Real Wax Candles, Flameless Weatherproof Candle Lights with Remote & Timer.

Standard

Candles, candles, candles! I love them. These real wax, battery operated candles are fun to use. You have no fire worries, or burn worries around your children and pets. You can fall asleep with them on, or walk out of the room, and not have to worry. A great piece of mind while enjoying a candle like experience. My youngest is currently afraid of real candles. It’s not even worth lighting one, because he freaks out, and it’s no longer relaxing to have going. Another plus side of battery operated candles, is that you don’t have to worry about what’s burning from the candle into your air. This set from Top Race is pretty nice. You get three candles and 1 remote control in your package. Each candle requires 3 AAA batteries that you have to supply. No screwdriver is needed to access the compartment. The battery for the remote is included. Just pull out the plastic from the battery compartment before use. On the bottom of each candle is also an on/off switch. You need to turn them on here to use them. You can leave that in the on position and turn them off with the remote. Remote controls make everything better. The candles are different sizes, which makes for a nice trio: 4”, 5”, and 6”. These are pillar candle style, and are approx.. 3” across. Each candle has LEDs in it, and afford 12 different colors. With the remote you have the choice of twelve different colors. You can have them rotate through the colors, or stay on a solid color of your choice. You can also have them be solid on, or in a simulated flickering mode. The flickering mode is actually very enjoyable. The white LED and the yellow LED makes these look realistic while on. I love that the exterior is done in a real wax. They are fragrant free, but you can smell the wax when you first open them up. One of my candles had some cracks in it upon arrival. I received them to review, so I did not return them. You can obviously exchange them if that happened to you. When on, these do not put off an odor. The do not even get warm to the touch. If you use rechargeable batteries, then you really have an eco-friendly product here. These are great for relaxing evenings, romantic evenings, power outages, by your bathtub, outside on your patio, and more. They are weather friendly, so you can use them outside. You can even set these on a 4 or 8 hour timer. You are really going to find these enjoyable. I know I have.
