SnapPower Review and Giveaway

I am so excited to share this amazing new product with you today! If you’ve been reading my blog for the past few months, you’ll notice that I have been focusing on ways to “go green” and be a more conscious consumer. I’ve been contacted to do reviews and giveaways for a lot of different products, but have turned them down since they didn’t really mesh well with my lifestyle. That was until the amazing folks at SnapPower sent me an email asking me to take a peek at their website. I am SO glad I did!



You’re probably thinking, “Um…Brooke that’s just an outlet cover. What’s so special about that?” Well, what makes it special is that this simple little cover goes from this…



To this!



That’s right! They’re NIGHTLIGHTS! They are outlet covers with LED lights built right in, so you don’t lose a socket to your night light. And in the example above, they’re great for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, well, everywhere! I see those battery-sucking under-cabinet lights in stores, and though they seem handy I never really liked the plastic, or the cords, or that you push them on and off. With these, I can just pop in a new outlet cover and have automatic backsplash lighting with NO hard wiring required! Plus there is a tiny little sensor that will turn the lights on when it’s dark, and off when it’s light so that you aren’t wasting any power or life-hours on the LEDs. Isn’t that amazing? They’re also ridiculously simple to install. You just unscrew your old cover, press in your new one, add the screw and bam! Light! Want to know the best part? It only costs TEN CENTS A YEAR to operate! And it lasts twenty five years! I’m so pumped about that. It works on all standard outlets (not GFCI) so you really can put them anywhere.



I kid you not, these are amazing. I put one in my toddler’s room, since her nightlight has already burnt out once, and plug space is at a premium what with sound machines and humidifiers. I also added one in the nursery, and I’m grateful that I did! I’m still feeding my one year old at least two or three times overnight, and it’s nice to have a dim, unobtrusive nightlight that I don’t have to remember to turn on and off. Because let me tell you, it’s never any fun when I forget to turn the nightlight on at bed time and have to fumble around with my phone’s flashlight trying to not shine the baby in the face while I’m getting her out of the crib!


I’m already planning to order several more for my kitchen, to make that long walk from my bedroom to the nursery a bit less, um, painful. It will be so nice to be able to find my way without bumping into things or leaving on a brighter light to waste energy. Because who can beat ten cents a year? I urge you to head on over to SnapPower and take a look. And of course, enter the giveaway to win an LED outlet cover of your very own!

  1. I love these! Will definitely order. It’s so simple, one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” products. Thanks for sharing, Brooke.

  2. Brilliant! I can’t tell you how much it annoys me to loose an outlet to a nightlight, especially in the bathroom! Space in there is so limited and preggo peeing a hundred times at night needs a light!

  3. First,I love this.
    My 9 year old is afraid of the dark,this would be great in the bathroom.
    For going green I’m a huge turn the light off lady! I try and not run the water when doing dishes. It’s habit I only sometimes stop 😉

  4. Reusable bags is my best go green tip. So easy and makes such a difference. No more plastic bags at my house. 🙂

  5. These would be great in my living room or bathroom! Thanks for the giveaway. My favorite going green tip is to just use less in general… live more like my grandparents who didn’t get something new that they didn’t need from Target or Walmart every week!

  6. I don’t do anything huge right now – my main thing is that I walk to the small stores in my neighborhood (butcher, Italian market, etc) instead on driving to the big grocery store. And bring my reusable bags of course!

  7. Brooke this is definitely something I could use and love. My kids are still young enough to need a nightlight especially for those wee hour potty visits!! Great giveaway.

  8. My favorite going green tip: Get a worm bin – easy to make tons of rich worm casings, cheap and fun for the kids

  9. Put a TJ mango tea bag into a reusable water bottle instead of buying a Diet Snapple. Tastes better, no fake sugar, and no extra containers.

  10. This is so cool! My favorite green tip is to consider other transportation–carpool, ride a bike, walk. Bonus: much more fun than driving alone!

  11. What a cool product! Instead of tossing our dryer lint, I use it to start fires in the winter and put outside for the birds (for their nests) in the summer.

  12. I love these outlet covers must have at least 2, great idea. My best practice is making all my cleaning products, including laundry soap.

  13. I stopped buying paper towels. If I don’t have them in the house I don’t miss them. Less waste and I’m not just throwing money away now.

  14. right now, I’m recycling and composting. Old trashcan in the kitchen for recycling, and reusing a plastic container for the compost. 🙂

  15. Wow! Whoever thought of this is hands down, a genius! Awesome idea and giveaway; I’ll definitely be getting some of these to put all over. 🙂 We go green by recycling anything that can be recycled. 😉

  16. I need this for my sleep walks to the toddler’s room because I always trip over the loudest toy possible on my way. My favorite green tip – before I retire a “dirty” kitchen towel (they’re typically not that dirty) to the laundry room, I spray it with eco-friendly cleaning spray and wipe down every ledge, table top and counter top on my way. With a full-time a job and a one-year-old, it’s often the largest portion of cleaning that takes place in our house.

  17. the only thing that comes to mind is to use old towels and cut them up into rags to clean with.
