Question Anyone using Mr. Beams Motion-Sensing LED Nightlight?

Hi all
Is anyone using a Mr Beams Battery-Powered Motion-Sensing LED Stick-Anywhere Nightlight?

Opinions?

I am probably going to get the amber model (MB720A) for the bathroom, and stick on the ceiling, as far forward as possible, to be away from the water of the shower in our 21'
$15 on Amazon.

Amber as to not be blasted by white light in the middle of the night.

Thanks.

John

My puck light in the bath is on the wall, next to the door jamb. My hand naturally falls there when entering, and I don't need a flashlight to find the light.

Velcro'ed one on the wall just under the sink, works well.

Probably the same brand as what I got (don't remember and too lazy to look up my orders on Amazon), but it came in a set of two. I put one in the house and the other is on the top side of the storage cubbie. That way it goes off for when Dirk will get up in the middle of the night to use the facilities. I won't get the light shining in my eyes when I'm in bed as it's around the corner of the wall. It's also great up there as when I use the trailer door it goes on. Heck, if I had known that I wouldn't have had to pay for the additional light switch by the door for an inside light!

It's a white light, not amber. It's great though and I like having it there. So, I guess I did find a use for those storage cubbies after all.

It may be a bit emasculating for some men but, once you get into the bathroom, if you sit down there really isn't too much ya need to see.

I have a couple of their larger spotlights outside. I had one for about four years at my old cabin (broke it by accident when moving). Very reliable, good light.

Some boat owners put a sign in the head "Gentlemen, please be seated" Saves on the clean-up.

I stuck a puck light on the edge of the kitchen counter, within reach when I open the trailer door from the outside. Guess I could have put it on the end of the counter, but here it reflects light off the ceiling. I stuck another one on the underside of the upper cabinets near the foot of the bed, as I sleep with my head at the foot of the bed and can reach it from there.

I just use the blue light on the older 2 door fridge.

Nightlight, spot light and reading light all in one!

update - i bought an amber Mr Beams motion light, and stuck it on the passenger wall, under the sink, on our 21' and it works beautifully at night.

just the right amount of light to see the sink to wash hands..... just enough light to see where to sit down, or where to aim, as need be.
