SnapPower, the brand behind those nifty USB-port charging outlet coverplates, is back again on Kickstarter with its new SwitchLight. Much like the products before it, this switch cover adds a night light to just about any space. In case you’re not familiar, here is how it works. The new plate has a pair of metal clips that snap into your existing switch and pulls energy for the night light. According to SnapPower, all you need to install is a screwdriver.
SwitchLight has three different illumination modes (bright, dim and off), which are actuated by the built-in light sensor. The obvious play here is for kids, but just about any home can use a nightlight. One reason that I like it, the light itself is raised up to the level of your switch, which is around four feet in most homes. With 68 hours to go, SwitchLight has raised over $258,000. A pledge of $12 will deliver a unit next month.
Because we have successfully gone through the Kickstarter process with other projects, we have a very sound understanding of what it takes to run a successful Kickstarter campaign and to deliver on time. We’ve spent a lot of time designing the SnapPower SwitchLight to meet the highest standards of performance, durability, and convenience. We’ve set up our manufacturing facilities and production tooling, and have already produced several thousand SwitchLights to ensure quality. We’ve delivered on time for our last two Kickstarter campaigns, and we’re confident that we’ll once again deliver on time.
