Best Night Lights for Adults
MIPOW Playbulb Sphere Bluetooth Smart LED Lamp Light
This Bluetooth-enabled MiPow LED Playbulb is a dreamy night light that we're 100% sold on. Use a freely-downloadable iOS/Android app to switch it on and off, adjust its brightness, choose from 16 million shades of light and pick from various effects for customization (make it pulse, fade, flash or burst into a rainbow.) Enable the motion sensor for the device to change colour and effect with just a tap, or shake your phone to watch it change hue. This orb comes with a 700 mAh li-polymer battery that charges wirelessly, making it one of the best night lights without a cord.
Philips Joy Vision Pearl Candy LED Night Light
Sleep easy in the diffused, yellow glow of Philips' Joy Vision Pearl Candy Night Lights. These no-frills 0.5 watt bulbs are energy-saving and have a long, long life span, so you won't have to replace them for a long time. Apart from keeping one in each bedroom, you can also use them to illuminate dark corridors. (It's an eco-friendly alternative as opposed to leaving the main lights on)
Skylofts Track Light Wall Lamp
If you want a slightly fancier night light, the Skylofts Track Light Wall Lamp is one of the best night lights to get. Plug it in by your bedside and watch a crystal moon cast a dim, blue glow as you drift off to sleep. It's diffused enough to allow you to catch your zzz's comfortably, yet just bright enough to illuminate your surroundings so you never have to hobble around in the dark.
3D Printing LED Touch Sensor Switch Moon Lamp
If you're big on themes, you'll love this lunar LED night light built with 3D-printing technology. Built like a moon, it has actual craters on the surface. Adjust its brightness to your liking, and choose from warm-yellow and cool-blue tones depending on your mood. Charge it with the provided USB cable and use it for 12 hours on low light, and 4 with full brightness.
GM Modular 0.5-Watt Sensor LED Night Lamp
Here's one of the best night lights (LED) with an auto-sensing device that makes it shine in the absence of natural or artificial light sources. It casts a diffused, orange glow which is perfect if you're planning to sleep, unless you prefer cooler tones. (In which case, look at our other recommendations.) Just plug it in to get started, and you won't ever have to worry about on-and-off switches again.
Canqua LED Night Lamp
Plug in this affordable Canqua LED light lamp to bask in its dim, red glow. It's one of the best night lights if you're averse to cool tones but are bored of traditional yellow lights. And if red is too bold for you, you always have conventional blue and white alternatives. Take your pick.
GM 0.5-Watt Planet-G Led Night Lamp
Here's a GM 0.5 Watt Night Light with a literal twist — it comes with a manual scroll you can adjust to vary the intensity of light. Switch from a diffused glow to a bright one depending on your needs. It consumes barely any electricity since the bulb is only 0.5 watts, making it one of the best night lights for energy-saving.
