GREAT Nightlight & FABULOUS Power Failure light!
This is hands down my favorite product at the Container Store. The Eco-i-Lite takes up very little space and draws very little power. I have one on the main floor and one in the second floor hallway. They worked like a charm during the power outages during the blizzards on the East Coast. Don't let the size fool you - the LED flashlight lit up the dining room and TV area enough that we did not need any candles!
The Eco-i-Lite is great! It senses when there is enough light in the room and turns off; in low light, the bottom yellow night light comes on; and when you remove it from the cradle, or the power goes out, the LED flashlight turns on.
Even my husband loves it and keeps asking when we are going to get on for the basement, laundry room and office. We give them as gifts to new homeowners and everyone is amazed that something so green and compact can deliver such quality.
Best impulse purchase ever!

Great light...but bulb out
I bought two of these for use in the recent hurricane in case the power went out. They're nice little lights and very bright and the nightlight feature works well. I wish it had the option to be a nightlight OR come on during a power outage (the auto setting makes it a nightlight when in a dark room, and, should the power go out, the flashlight portion turns on). My only problem is that out of the two I purchased, one had a bulb out (there are three small LED bulbs per flashlight), which was pretty disappointing right out of the package. It was still pretty bright, but it's always a bummer to have something not fully functional when brand new.

Handiest light in the house
Always in use in bathroom. During power outage I couldn't get the matches to light any more to light candles so this was our only light till the power came back on.
My husband is always grabbing the flashlight for some task or need. Never have to hunt for it or wonder if the batteries are still good because it does not have any. Really useful and have given as gifts. Would be a good gift for newlywed shower. Don't know you need it till you do.

Flash Light Is Dim
I purchased this almost 4 years ago because I wanted a hallway light that would light at night but turn off during the day. I also thought that it would be useful to have during a power outage since the flash light automatically comes on. I liked this as a night light, but over the years the flash light has become dimmer and dimmer. Currently it shed almost no light whatsoever. But as a nightlight it is amazing.
