Received two of these items. Had a power cut and one of them stopped working. On inspection both items contained 13AMP rated fuses which is in breach of UK safety guidance for electrical items. It should have a 3amp fuse as it draws less than 700watts. This caused the item to overheat, become very warm and fail. From reading other reviews it appears this has happened to many people. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM. IT HAS A FAKE UK PLUG WHICH COULD CAUSE A HOUSE FIRE! REPORTING AMAZON TO TRADING STANDARDS FOR SELLING FAKE ELECTRICAL GOODS.

I bought two of these items after a previous Rolson equivalent was dropped and broken. The Rolson version was no longer available so this looked to be a good alternative. How wrong I was. The first one would switch on and off randomly at the top of the stairs. Bright lights flashing on and off do not aid sleep. I unplugged it. One that I placed at the bottom of stairs simply stopped working after 3 weeks. The sensor / light wouldn't sense or turn on. Plus... it seemed to me that the base of the unit and the torch itself were getting very hot.
In all honesty, I could not recommend this to anyone.
There are (I hope) other options which do a similar job. If Rolson are reading this - please bring back your earlier model with the blue LED night light. I wish I'd bought two of them!

This item was great when it worked, we installed it in our dark hallway for when our granddaughter came to stay, after about 6 weeks it started playing up, either on all the time or the pir sensor not picking up movement. After 10 weeks stopped working altogether. Contacted seller received no reply.

Well, it started ok but after only a few days the product became faulty, I decided to return the item only to find that it would now cost me money to return the faulty item back to the seller, so not impressed with the product or service, postage should be paid by the supplier if it is faulty within the guarantee period, so the initial cost of buying the item becomes more expensive as you incur costs through no fault of your own, I would not purchase another but I am still waiting for a replacement to be sent, it is over a week so far.

So after the recent fiasco in my house when the fuse box tripped and everyone was stumbling around in the dark trying to find a torch so we could then locate the fuse box... I bought this unit.

It charges up like some electric toothbrushes do: simply place the torch into the holster (no connections need to be made) and it charges immediately. In fact, it switches itself into "nightlight" mode which turns on the long lamp at the front of the unit whenever it detects nearby movement.

Unfortunately it can sometimes trigger when there is no (apparent) movement which is a bit spooky. Perhaps my unit is over-sensitive.

Additionally the night light is BRIGHT! Wow, like 10 LEDs all come on for 20 seconds or so and it really lights up the place. It was too bright for us so we've moved it out of the landing and into the utility room.

The torch switches on as soon as you remove it from the holster. You can then press the switch on top of the unit to turn on the traditional torch beam or leave the side lights on.

In the case of a power cut (or someone switching off the socket) the torch immediately switches itself on as per the nightlight use. If only I'd had this the last time my fuse box tripped.

The plug-in holster is quite compact and sits firmly in the wall socket, so no problems there.

All-in-all, I'm just deducting a star for the over-bright, over-sensitive nightlight but as a unit it's great and I might even buy another for the garge.

Good value too.

Pleased with next day delivery.
However the product failed almost immediately.
Very much in line with other reviews that I should have reacted to.
So pleased I ordered one of the alternative products at the same time!
The torch would not work at all [except for the motion sensitive night light].
Buy something else.

The sensor constantly detects motion even when there is none (e.g., empty room), creating a strobe light effect that is really annoying. At other times, it always stays on regardless of motion. Not sure if this is a product defect or poor craftsmanship. Product concept is good, but buyer beware.

I love the idea of these and have purchased two from different sources. Both lasted a few months at best then malfunctioned.

They come on and stay on for no reason, they don't come on when you want them and unfortunately before I realised how unreliable they were I had persuaded my sister to buy two and she persuaded her friend to buy one. All five had the same problem!

The wall charger gets frighteningly hot and I am concerned as to how safe they are.

They claim to be award winning but I wonder what award and if the judges were able to keep them long enough to find out what they are really like.

I would not recommend these as I feel there is a design fault.
