If you're like me, you have a closet without a light bulb. We've never put one in, because who wants to pay an electrician to re-wire the whole house. Instead, we just hunt around in the dark.
That's what makes the $10 "Stick Up Bulb" so appealing. It runs off of battery power. So you don't need a socket or an outlet.
Phil Davis owns a local handyman service in Wichita. We figured this test is perfect for him. Davis says, "At first glance it looks okay. Says Westinghouse', it's a light bulb. But you look close and you see a seam and an edge. Not a lot of light bulbs out there with a seam and an edge."
The real light is inside. Davis says, it's essentially a flashlight, but will it do the trick?
Davis says, it isn't the brightest light around, but it works as a nice night light to get light where you wouldn't be able to before.
