The magnetic bracket than “snaps” into the base and the magnets hold it securely. the The Snap N Shine light swivels up and down in a 120 degree angle for better illumination, though based on the reviews, we do not recommend this as it may cause the Snap-N-Shine base to loosen.

Snap N Light Review
Missing FeaturesThough the Snap N Shine is loaded with lots of useful features like a remote control and USB charging, given the price of the light, the Snap N Shine Light still lacks some of the basic and important features like Motion Sensor – The Snap N Shine light does not come with a sensor. You do not want to carry the remote when you go in the dark to turn on the light, you want it to switch on automatically when you are in the vicinity. The lack of motion sensor is a major disadvantage of the Snap N Shine light.
Lack Of InformationA lot of crucial information related to the specifications of the Snap N Shine light is missing on the official website SnapNShine.com. For example there is not information about
- Battery – No information about the type of Li-Ion battery used in the Snap N Shine light and its power.
- Charging time – No information on how much time it takes to fully charge the battery.
- Battery Runtime – The official website SnapNShine.com also does not reveal any information about how long the Snap N Shine light works continuously after the battery is charged dully.
- Luminosity – The official website SnapNShine.com does not provide any information about the brightness of the light. Many buyers would want to know the brightness intensity to make sure that it suits their requirement.
- LED Lights – Again there is no information about the number of LED lights in the Snap N Shine light. Normally such closet lights have up to 20 LEDs but you are not sure with the Snap N Shine
Be Careful with MirrorsDo not recommend putting the Snap N Shine on mirror as the adhesive would leave marks on the mirror. Mind you, you cannot change the location of the bracket once you stick it to any surface. Of-course it is because of the adhesive. So once you fix this light in one location, be known that it is its permanent location. So before you attach the Snap N Shine to any location just make sure it is the perfect spot.
Great for Bathroom ClosetOne user got the Snap N Shine light for his bathroom closet which is not well lit. The user mentions in her review that she was quiet satisfied with the illumination that Snap N Shine provided, uncomplicated and simple. “The Snap N Shine is especially food for small dark spaces, might not be very useful for large rooms”, she says in her review. She even says that in a way it is good that Snap N Shine does not have the motion sensor feature as many online reviews of such light mention the problem with the motion sensors.
Works as a Reading LightThe Snap N Shine also works as a good reading light. The light attaches well to the bed without having to drill the base. Provides just the right amount of light required for reading, not too bright. Works great on bed or on the desk for reading.
Not Very BrightAlmost all the review confirm the fact that the Snap N Shine is not as bright as you might expect it to be. But then most of the users have used it for small spaces and admit that it gets the job done. All the rechargeable cordless lights tend to have lesser brightness, the reviews claim. “It is brightest when you charge the Snap N Shine light and as the battery drains the brightness reduces” – one reviewer reports.
One user mentions that he purchased the Snap N Shine light after the recent power outage in Texas, it gets the job done. But many wish that it had motion sensors. But the important different between the Snap N Shine light and other lights is that this is specifically made for smaller areas. If you wish to use it for bigger rooms or garage you would need several of these Snap N Shine lights. The Snap N Shine light becomes dimmer and dimmer as the battery drains, so you have to recharge it after every two day. One reviewer mentions that it would have been great if the Snap N Shine had clear plastic cover instead of the frosted cover, the frosted cover decreases the brightness.
About Snap N Shine EfficiencyThough the official website SnapNShine.com does not reveal the information about the specifications, user reviews do reveal. One reviewer mentions that the Snap N Shine light holds the charge for about two days and needs to be recharged after that. It takes 12 hours to recharge the Snap N Shine light. As one reviewer suggests, it is a good to have a few of these so you always have the charged light handy.
