Night Angel Review

Night Angel is a wall outlet cover that provides an automatic night light while leaving both of your outlets free. It is powered by copper prongs which draw power from inside the outlet.  A light sensor switches the unit on when it is dark, and turns it off when it is light. These low-energy lights should only cost cents per year to operate. Two design options include duplex or decor.

While Night Angel could be described as a knockoff of the popular SnapPower Guidelights (see below), they do provide a less expensive alternative that performs the same basic function as that product.

Consumer demand for SnapPower has been high, and it is not a surprise to see an As Seen on TV alternative hit the airwaves. The ability to light pathways without consuming an outlet is an attractive feature.

Although Night Angel is slightly less expensive than SnapPower, it could still be described as expensive based on the materials and in comparison to traditional night lights. That is perhaps why the product disappeared briefly, and then returned with updating pricing that lowered the cost per unit by about 30%.

Now that Night Angel has become available in stores, it is a compelling alternative to SnapPower, especially without shipping costs and delays. We think that those who purchase Night Angel will be generally pleased with the product.


You’ve probably seen SnapPower advertising online in recent months. Read our review of that item here. You can also see consumer reviews for that item here, where it holds a 4.3 star rating among over 1,000 customer reviews. A SnapPower Guidelight costs about $15.
