My local Lidl is selling small battery operated sensor lights for £5.99. I haven’t seen them being advertised in either their magazines or online, so they may be a “sell off” item. They would work well for those looking for a cheap and simple solution to having a low powered light in the toilet area for those night time visits.

I found this, it’s an old ad and not Lidl, but it’s the same lights

We got a couple a few months ago and put one in the fridge and one in the wardrobe. Very pleased with them.  They are about 6 ins X  1ins with 6 LEDs.

Yes Paul, we have one in our small porch at home. It helps when getting home in the dark and trying to find the keyhole to get in Whistle1

We have loads of these..........

I'm assuming PIR ones which light when you approach, that is important

One every 3rd stair on the stairs to the bedrooms so if you need to go down, or up, stairs in the night, no need to wake wifey by switching on mains light

In the MH, ours is a PVC, one on the rh rear door facing forwards, if you need to go to the loo in the night, shows the way

One more in the wardrobe...

When next available, Lidl doesn't do same thing each week, one more will go in the shower compartment

As an aside we only use Duracell batteries for all of these, may think expensive, but not the case................

up! up! up! up!

Ian, the reason for me posting is that Lidl are selling them right now (in our store anyway)

Hi
   I bought a strip and was most disappointed with them , you had to be with 1" off the sensor before it turned on

Was that one of the sensor lights or the strip leds? Either way it sounds like a fault, our sensor light reacts very quickly when there is any movement of our door, it even switched on when a moth got into our porch snigger
