Review of Light Angel, a motion-detecting LED portable light, advertised to be a lighting solution for a variety of settings.
About Light Angel
Light Angel appears to be related to “InstaBulb” which was advertised a few years ago. Whereas InstaBulb was advertised mainly as a stick-up indoor light, Light Angel is primarily marketed as an outdoor security light. Unlike InstaBulb, Light Angel contains LED lights and is motion-activated.
The official website is lightangel.com, which was created on December 13, 2003, though this product did not exist on that domain until 2013. The tagline is “Motion activated stick up LED light.”
How much does Light Angel cost?
Light Angel costs $12.99 plus $7.99 shipping and handling for a total cost of $20.98. You can pay a “separate fee” to get the Olde Brooklyn Lantern.
Below is a television commercial for Light Angel:

Our Light Angel Review
We tried Light Angel in several locations to to determine its effectiveness. The brightness is not quite as impressive as the commercials would have you believe, and the area illuminated by the light has a rather small radius. It is, however, sufficient for small spaces, such as a back porch or shed. Its brightness does not compare to standard security flood lights.
The motion detecting feature works, but we found it somewhat unpredictable, ranging from 10 to 20 feet. The light automatically shuts off about a minute after the last motion is detected.
It should be noted that Light Angel only works in the dark, and mounts with double-sided tape. It does not attach as well to stucco as it does to wood or other smooth surfaces.
Light Angel may be sufficient for those with realistic expectations of a battery-operated LED light. While it may not live up to the hype of the commercial, it may be useful for consumers looking to light up a small area.
