Fredorch UFO 360° Rotating LED wall light review


Adding additional light to a place with no electrical outlets can be a challenge when you don’t want to pay an electrician. Stick up lights are one solution, but they usually run on batteries and require the flip of a switch to turn on the light. The Fredorch UFO 360° Rotating LED wall light looks like a much better alternative. Let’s take a closer look at this oddly named light.

What is it?

The Fredorch UFO 360° Rotating LED wall light is a micro USB rechargeable LED light that sticks where ever you like and turns on when it detects motion.

Instructions

The Fredorch UFO 360° Rotating LED wall light has two parts. The light or what I guess would be considered the UFO module, and the base.

On the bottom of the light is a magnetic ring that attaches to the steel ball in the base.

The ball allows the light to swivel and rotate so you can aim the light where you want the beam to point.

The light actually has two parts. An outer ring and an inner light. Tilting the outer ring provides access to the switches that can be set so that the light automatically turns on when motion is detected.

You can set the outer ring to light up by itself.

Or you can set the inner and outer lights to light up at the same time.

The image above makes the light look amber. It’s not. It’s a white light. For some reason my camera would not capture the true color when both lights were on.

The tilting outer ring also provides access to the micro USB connector for charging the built-in battery.

Installing the Fredorch wall light is simple. Using the included two-sided 3M adhesive sticker, you put the sticker on the base, then attach the base to the wall, and the light to the base.

I decided to install the light in a closet that only has a one bulb pull string fixture in the ceiling. That light works pretty well if all I need is a towel on one of the upper shelves, but if I need to find something lower or on the floor, I can’t see anything without using a flashlight.

Adding the Fredorch wall light now lets me find what I need and I don’t even have to pull a string or press a button. As soon as I open the door, the light detects motion and turns on. There’s no delay at all. And when I shut the door, the light will turn off within 15 or 20 seconds.

Final thoughts

The Fredorch UFO 360° Rotating LED wall light is very useful. It’s one of those things that make me say “Why didn’t I get one of these a long time ago?” Now that I have this one, I will be thinking of other places in my house that can use some extra light.

    How long does the battery last and how do you recharge it when it runs down?

    • Julie Strietelmeier June 6, 2017, 2:56 pm

      There’s a micro USB port that I showed and talked about in the review. That’s what you use to charge the light with the micro USB cable that is included with the light.

      Battery life is dependent on how many times and for how long the light is on per use. It’s tough to say how long it will last per charge but it’s going working great for weeks on one charge. I’ll follow up with a review update at some point.

        Does the part with the charging port come off the base easily? Otherwise you’d have to run your USB cord a long way.. 😎

        • Julie Strietelmeier June 7, 2017, 5:08 pm

          Yes, the charging port is in the light part. Check the images above. The ring around the center light pivots to allow access to the switches and the charging port.

            Oh. Haha. I didn’t see what you mean. The light itself is held magnetically to the “ball” and so you can just pull it off and carry it to your recharger.

            I guess if it lasts 3 or 4 months (longer if you don’t use it) it might be nice. If you have a bunch that would certainly get annoying.

    I love LED lights and am fascinating by UFOs. So thanks for this review. I was upset recently to read that incandescent lights (which are hard to find anymore, and as we know use more energy) are the safest lights in terms of electromagnetic radiation. The article said LEDS and Solar panels are actually harmful to our health.
    That goes against everything I had believed. I hope there is a way that inventors can make them as safe as Edison bulbs. Here’s the article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/05/28/dirty-electricity.aspx

      Mercola is one of the worst pseudo science website on the ENTIRE Internet. There’s nothing there that has the slightest basis in science.

      I would advise everyone to read this article from Quackwatch on the quackery level which Dr Mercola and his website reaches – https://www.quackwatch.org/11Ind/mercola.html

      Julie should delete the post as well. It has no place here or anywhere.
