Does it Work Wednesday: Mighty Light

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Mighty Light is a motion light that promises a lot of brightness in a tiny $10 gadget, but Does it Work?

We took it to Hays Hendricks' basement.  She walked in the pitch black storage room and immediately the Mighty Light turned on.  It remained on for about a minute, which Hays said was plenty of time to fumble around for the light switch.

We then put it at the foot of a staircase to see just how bright Mighty Light would shine.  Unfortunately, it did not illuminate the entire stairwell.  Hays said you would want to put a tiny Mighty Light at the top and bottom of a staircase if you really wanted to have motion lights in place.

Still, she thinks it'd be handy and likes the $10 price tag.

"I think you need to use it in small spaces, but yes, it's plenty bright for that, at least.  I think it's affordable and seems to live up to its promises."

Mighty Light runs on a one-minute cycles.  We also notice the area needs to be pitch-black to get it to work properly.  If there's a lot of light, Mighty Light will not sense motion and will not turn on.

Mighty Light is mighty enough to earn a B+ on this Does it Work test.

Lauren bought Mighty Light at Walmart in Cape Girardeau.
