Good Range, Good Sensitivity, Right Price, Bright LED.Nov 20, 2011
By Yoda 7th
I've a soft spot for lights... torchlights, motion lights, spotlights, nightlights, etc. I've at least 2 dozen night lights; motion-activated, darkness-activated, battery-operated and electric. So my review is with reference to my collection and usage experience.
Good - This Mr Beams MB 723 is by far the best for lighting up pathways. Design is simple and robust, easily removed for portability, no reflective cover, no direct eye-contact with LED, wide-angle detection range(about 160 degrees), and has an active sensor (meaning it won't leave you in darkness until you're out of range and will only shut off 30 seconds thereafter). Although rated for 1.5V, Eneloop rechargeable batteries (1.2V) works just fine.
Caution - other reviewers had bad experience with the included double-sided adhesive; it is definitely of cheap quality and will almost certainly damage your wall when removed. This nightlight requiring 4xAA batteries needs stronger adhesive. I guessed that is why mounting screws are included. If you hate making holes in wall like myself, strongly suggest using 3M damage-free adhesive which I've been happily using and removing without pain.
Note: This is not meant for above eye-level placement because its LED will blind you!
Conclusion - For its purpose, this nightlight is a great design. Not meant to compare with overhead or directional models. Hence, I've rated this 5 stars. I'm usually skeptical about purchasing lights online especially when lumens ratings are not given. I took the risk even though some reviewers complained about it being not bright enough. Comparing this with my dozens of nightlight, it is brighter than all of them (both battery and electrical operated). All 3 works out-of-the-box as advertised and having read pro-active comments from the manufacturer for those 1-star reviews, I was not worried about DOA anyway. Glad I bought this and hope this review helps!

Reliable & functional!Aug 27, 2009
By G. Wells
Received these in less than a week from Smarthome.
Each light takes 4 AA batteries, so buy a 12-pack too! The booklet recommends alkaline or lithium AA-cells with 1.5v rating -- your usual energizer/duracell AA battery, in other words. I had hoped to try the new Eneloop -long-lasting-charge rechargeables (i still might), but we'll see how long it takes for these batteries to die first.
these come with a mounting bracket and double-sided sticky patches; the sticky patches will be fine since these items only weigh 1% more than 4 AA batteries. :)
My hallway is dark at night, and i have these space every 5 feet along the floor. The light is somewhat directional, and i have 'em aimed down (as in the picture) so they illuminate mainly the floor (so you won't be blinded when stumbling to the loo in the middle of the night).
The motion sensor has a wide angle, and as i walk down my hall, the lights light up when i get within four feet (like an 80-degree angle) away, which is great. They light up at night, at dusk, at dawn, and when it's grey & cloudy like today. Yesterday was sunny, even (sort of) in my hallway, and they detected that and didn't light up.
So for about $50 (forty for the lights, ten for the batteries) i now have illumination in my hallway, my kids aren't scared of walking down it, my parents & in-laws need not worry about tripping... the only question is HOW LONG WILL THE AA'S LAST? I'll try to check in at 6 month intervals (comment to this and i'll receive an email alert if i need reminding.) ;^_^

Nice model but adhesive is uselessOct 22, 2011
I've had this trio of little lights for a couple of weeks. They are nice and compact and are perfect for illuminating a hallway just enough so you can step around. They have sensitive detectors that reliably turn on the light in dark conditions only. They've got this down just right. However I have not succeeded in getting the adhesive to keep a unit up for more than two days. Screws are included as an alternative, and this should be your choice -- or find a third-party adhesive strip that is very strong.

Great lights, but will damage wallsOct 16, 2011
These lights are great. They are VERY bright, and very sensitive. I think it picked up my movement about 12 feet away. On paper it's great... but I really wish that the sensor would have less range. I have it in the staircase and it keeps lighting up when I'm moving in the kitchen/family area. I ended up moving it to the other side, but of course it damaged my wall (I used the sticky that came with it). They are portable and pretty much what other reviewers said about the product is true.
I want to warn people that if you use the sticky that comes with it, it will 100% damage your wall when you take it off. Don't use the screw either, because if you're like me... you'll probably move it around until it "feels" right.
Instead, use the Command 17021P Medium Mounting Refill Strips, 9 Strips. One Command strip will hold up the light easily. Also, if you want to move/relocate the light it will not damage your wall at all.
I deduct 1 star, because I really don't like the sticky that damages the walls when removed. I even try to heat it with blow dryer before removing... doesn't work.
The Command Strip solved the problem tho. The LED lights are highly recommended!
