Cordless lamps? Does such a thing exist?

Plugholes in the wrong place for landing lamps. Rather than move the plugholes, does anyone know if such a thing as a cordless lamp exists?

Yes, they do. Although a simple search on google would have told you that!

Recently found an amazing range of rechargeable cordless lamps which are very child safe and therefore perfect for a wide range of uses in the home.
They come with a remote control and 16 LED colour options to select from making them great for night lights both in the home and garden.
The company which sell them is insight cordless lighting and are sold as a set. Each set comes complete with 2 cordless lamps, twin induction charging base, remote control, universal power adaptor and 2 years warranty. I have purchased 2 sets and found the service and product quality excellent. Great value for money!!

Thanks all!

Could you use a couple of night lights that plug directly into the socket? We used just one on our landing and it was enough to light the way for the children so two should give you plenty of light. If they are light sensitive ones, you can just leave them switched on all the time.

Ikea do rubbery rechargeable night-lights, with coloured bulbs, in their kids section.

We saw solar powered indoor lights in Ikea a few weeks ago.

Mathmos do have a decent selection, thanks!

A dimmer switch is a great idea actually. O do like the idea of a cosy lamp, but I don't think i'm going to find what's in my imagination! Thanks for the other suggestions too, I'll certainly have a look at some of those.

We have one of these similar to CMOTDibbler, but got it from Wilkos, but if the sockets are in the wrong place, it might not help!

Our main landing light is also quite good. It gives off a blue / purple glow, so is enough to wander round at night, but not bright enough to wake you up, IYSWIM? No idea what it is, or how to find it - a quick google didn't bring anything like it up.

And a friend has something like these where the torch is detachable for trips, but charges the rest of the time?

QuickQuickSloe Mon 13-Aug-12 07:29:03

these might be bright enough?

You used to be able to get globe Mathmos lamps that plugged in to charge up and could be unplugged when ready; they are then free-standing/cordless.

MrsMangoBiscuit Mon 13-Aug-12 06:57:56

Ooh, where did you get those CMOTDibbler?

PigletJohn Sun 12-Aug-12 21:51:08


are the switches for the landing light, single switches (square, with just one tumber)?

How would you feel about changing one for a dimmer so you could leave the lights low overnight?

Returning to the electrical sockets in the bedrooms, if any of them magically transported themselves through the thickness of the wall, so they were on the landing side, would that help?

CMOTDibbler Sun 12-Aug-12 21:49:28

No, not motion, light, so it comes on automatically when dusk falls

SlinkyPebbles Sun 12-Aug-12 21:45:58

Hello dibbler, yes I have a couple if sensor lights, but the kids have to walk out into the dark landing to activate them IYSWIM.

SlinkyPebbles Sun 12-Aug-12 21:44:49

Yes Piglet, two-way switching up and down. Landing has 4 bedrooms off it, and there are two switches, one at either end of the landing. The switches do happen to be outside each of two rooms. Landing is approx 12 ft long........

CMOTDibbler Sun 12-Aug-12 21:44:24

We have a plugin night light (handily with light sensor so you can leave it in all the time) thats plenty of light to see your way to the loo, and as long as theres a plug somewhere visible, it would be fine. Got it in Asda

MrsMangoBiscuit Sun 12-Aug-12 21:35:24

Ikea do little light things that are designed to go in wardrobes that are motion activated, run on batteries and stick on the wall. Would that be any good? They also do a reading light thing that you push to turn on, again on battery power that sticks to the wall.

PigletJohn Sun 12-Aug-12 21:32:25

yes, I use table lamps on the landings as well. But how long is your landing, and where are the sockets?

Presumably the ceiling lamps have two-way switching (from upstairs and down) that operate all the landing lights together, is that right?

Do any of the rooms off the landing have sockets either on the wall adjoining the landing, or close to the doorways?

If you had rechargable lamps, would it be acceptable to recharge them each day?

SlinkyPebbles Sun 12-Aug-12 21:27:25

Hello piglet, it's subdued evening lighting I'm after, so the little ones can see their way to the loo.
