How to Choose the Touch Control Night Lights?

It’s important to know that what’s your purpose to buy a night light, and what are you going to use it for and who is it going to? If you’re buying it for yourself, the following considerations shall be taken into.

#1. Battery operated or Plug-in

Some of the touch control night lights are with higher wattage so they can emit more bright light, yet it also requires more power to last. For this kind of night light, it’s normally plug in operated so it can offer continuous electricity. If you travel often and you need a battery-operated portable night light, so you can carry it around, the plug in type is not the option for you.

#2. Is it bright enough for reading?

If you want a night light that is not just for better sleep condition but also uses for reading before sleep, be careful whether it’s bright enough for reading. Since some of the lamps are in compact measurement (normally 1 – 2w), the actual illumination could be not that bright to support your reading. Therefore, choose a bigger size of night table lamp with higher wattage or higher lumen, and most importantly with dimmable function, so you can read with the brightest light and dim it when going to sleep.

If you’re buying the touch control night lights for your kids, you will need to take care of the following situation. 

#3. Is it made with hazard-free material?

When it comes to children, safety is our main concern. Because your children will also see it as their toy, they will bite or throw the lamp, so it’s important that the night lamps are sturdy enough and made with food and toy-grade material. And the lamp should also not contain any small gadgets in case it will be swallowed accidentally by your kids, such as button batteries.

#4. Is it with a safe electrical design?

Check whether the night lights are powered on high AC voltage (110V/220V) or it’s operated on DC low voltage. If it’s powered by AC voltage and with a power cord plug in, always check whether the lamp has done well on the isolation measures. If the cable core gets naked or aged after a long time using, keep it away from children.
