Night light Answered

I am looking for a brighter than 4w (incandescent) nightlight to plug into wall outlets in my hallway. I have tried a couple LED from Walmart and they are way to dim. Does anyone have instructions for one or a recommendation for a store-bought one.

You might try to get a power strip and plug a bunch of the LED nightlights in. Brighter LEDs do produce more heat so they are probably not used or in multiples for nightlights.

I would think even a couple LEDs in a single fixture would run cooler the standard 4 watt incandescent bulb.

True but I guess the real purpose of a nightlight is to have the bare minimum of light to find the real lightswitch so no one really makes bright energy efficient ones. Maybe you could plug in one of those dimmable undercabinet LED strips/hockey pucks for your nightlight. Your hallway may look like an airport landing strip though.

How about a few strings of Christmas tree LEDs along the baseboard?
