Bulb on a Rope Review

Bulb on a Rope is a battery-powered As Seen on TV light bulb that can be taken with you anywhere. It features a 4-foot rope which allows you to tie it in place and hang it to your desired height. To operate Bulb on a Rope, you simply pull the cord to turn the light on or off.

The design of Bulb on a Rope adds adjustable height to older designs which have been advertised on television in recent years. Those older models were mounted using screws or a sticky backing. The ability to tie it, rather than stick it, is a potentially a huge plus over similar bulbs, as sticky surfaces tend to degrade quickly over time. Further, the long cord allows you to tie it off to hang in the exact location that you need it.

You may find that Bulb on a Rope isn’t particularly large or bright, but there are some instances when a little light is all that’s needed. It probably can’t compete with brighter LED lights on the market, but the four-foot cord does offer a unique feature you probably won’t find anywhere else.

If the convenience of tying your bulb is greater than that of brightness, Bulb on a Rope may be a good fit for you.


There have been quite a few As Seen on TV portable light bulbs in recent years. You may remember Anthony Sullivan pitching Insta Bulb a few years ago, which you can still get for about $14 for two, although consumer reviews are not impressive.

This push sensor light is an Amazon best seller, and you get three for about $18.

This rechargeable light bulb uses 24 LED lights powered by a 4000mAh Lithium battery and offers 360 lumens.
