When I needed a new night light bulb for a small light in our living room, I found some energy saving LED night light bulbs, made by Meridian, at my local Walmart store. While I was looking over the selection, I ended up purchasing a Meridian LED Night Light as well.
I have a childcare business in our home, and we have always had a night light in our garage, which is on twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Having the night light on all the time meant going through a lot of bulbs, so when I saw this Meridian version, which states that it has a life time guarantee against burning out, I spent the $4 for it and boy am I glad I did.
The Meridian LED Night Light has no bulb to replace! It does not get hot to the touch, and the LED bulb uses only 0.3 watts of energy! Unlike other energy saving light bulbs that contain mercury, the Meridian LED Night Light does not contain mercury, which is a toxic substance and has to be disposed of very carefully. The Meridian LED Night Light uses up to 95% less electricity than standard incandescent night light bulbs.
This looks like a typical night light, with a clear plastic shade or covering over the bulb. It gives off a fair amount of light in our dark garage, plenty of light to guide us without turning on our over head lights. It this bulb ever burns out, Meridian Electric will replace it for free, you just have to mail it back to them via the address listed on the back of the package.
I don’t think I have ever purchased a night light that came with a lifetime guarantee before, but the fact that I won’t ever have to purchase any more night light bulbs for this night light is very appealing. The Meridian LED Night Light has a small round light sensor in the front, and the light will only come on if the room is dark enough. This saves even more energy. The prism style plastic covering makes the tiny bulb look like a full sized night light bulb when it is illuminated, it’s really amazing. I was shocked when I looked under the cover and saw how tiny the bulb was.
This night light does not give off quite the same level of light that my old night light did, but the positives of using this product out weight the negatives. We have been very pleased with the Meridian LED Night Light.
