An ultra-bright night light?

This seems like a flawed concept

C. Crane

We're resigned to the inexplicable ubiquity of LEDs , especially when they have absolutely no practical use . But we must draw the line when it comes to our children: Why, for example, would anyone want to use LEDs in a night light?

Granted, light-emitting diodes use much less power than standard bulbs, but they're also consistently touted by manufacturers for their ultra-bright illumination. And C. Crane's "LED Night Light" is no exception.

The last time we checked, night lights were generally used to cast a soft glow that allows children to sleep when they're still afraid of the dark--not to light up coal mines . Still, if you're training your kids to sleep under any conditions day or night, then this may be the product for you.
