So we bought a light for our Son to be mounted on the wall beside his bed for reading and to save him getting out of bed. Cost to install was about 5x the light and required lots of capping!

 

We are now looking at alternatives.

 

We are thinking a portable light bar with no blue light LED feature, that could be stuck onto the wall to provide light, but then taken as a torch in an emergency. Ideally, it would have variable brightness options and be quickly chargable, ideally with USBC.

 

Anyone got any other bright ideas or a specific product they can recommend.

I got one of these from Bunnings - has magnetic base, so attach a plate to the wall, then attach this ? :) https://www.bunnings.co.nz/lytworx-high-intensity-cob-work-light_p00027442
