About 3 weeks ago I got a call from MR Beams a company which is just around the corner from our offices here in Eastlake, Oh. They where interested in getting their product listed on our site, so I took a look at what they where selling. I found it was battery powered LED lighting operated by motion sensors. Over the years I have looked at alot of this type of product and after testing quite a few they always fell short, so I was not to excited with the prospects of this version. But they insisted I try the samples they where going to send and I agreed. The issues I have traditionally found with LED lighting in this form is that it usually is to dim, the motion sensor is worthless and dealing with batteries can be a pain.
So with an open mind
I broke open the box of samples and began my evaluation. The units themselves look great, there was definitely some thought put into the design, the LED's looked tiny so I was a bit worried. I through some batteries in the Anywhere Light and after putting it into a dark closet was about blinded by the amount of light it gave off. (BTW don't do what I did and try and cover the sensor with your hand and think it will turn on, and when it doesn't, figure the unit is broken. And then after reading the instruction figure out the unit must be in darkness to work
My initial test was the night light which I mounted in our home bathroom. And after a middle of the night trip to test it out it work perfectly. I was amazed at how far the sensor will pick up and with the light point in the prefect spot I was sold.
The light is super bright from such a small package, the motion sensor work incredibly well and is their claim to fame, but what about the batteries? Mr Beams claims to get about 1 year + out of a set of batteries and that is a major
I have one on the stairs going into rig and one in the bathroom. I also use their outdoor version to light up the area from the RV to the campfire. This is definitely one of the better products to come along in quite some time.
