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.
