Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mr. Beams MB862 Indoor Wireless Battery Powered Slim LED Light with Motion Sensor Features, 2-Pack, Brown (DIY & Tools)
I bought these on lightning deal after seeing them come up a number of times. The first pair I got BOTH broke in a very short period of time, and so, thanks to Amazon's usual no-quibble customer service, I got them replaced. It does make me somewhat less than confident about the quality, and it remains to be seen how long the replacements last.
That said, touch wood they seem to be OK. I have them installed in a cupboard under the sink - it seems to be the best suited type of place for them: somewhere that is perpetually dark where you'll always need light when you're in there. So cupboards, pantry, cubby-hole, loft, etc. The detector works fairly reliably and the light is bright.
As others have said, the light will activate day or night as soon as something sets the motion detector off - so putting it in the open (like kitchen worktop downlights as shown in the product description) is probably not the most effective use for it - and will quickly go through batteries.
In conclusion, this is a good, handy little product - as long as it's being used in the right place; and hopefully I had just gotten unlucky with the first two breaking on me.
