    Vanity Light

    Customer review by L1ly

    5.0 stars by L1ly

    I bought this as a low-cost lighting fixture for my vanity. The light has been used daily for about 10-20 minutes at a time over the past month, and has not needed the batteries replaced or had any problem functioning. I originally fastened it to the wall with the included Velcro strips but found them ineffective after the light fell off the wall three times. I then fastened the light using thumb tacks which fit perfectly into the holes in the back of the light, and have had no issue since. I am very pleased with this purchase!

    I bought this exact light 10 years ago. I had it in my unheated shed. It worked great and I never had a problem with it. It just stopped working and I bought another one at By the way, I absolutely can't stand shopping at a Walmart store, because the lines are always a mile long and it's like a circus inside. However, I must say Walmart's ship to store service is great. You pay online. Go to a register in the back with no line, pick up your merchandise and leave. It's great!

    Customer review by BucsBiker

    1.0 stars by BucsBiker

    After two weeks use, the fluorescent bulb began to flicker. Following instructions printed on packaging, I tried to "Remove end caps from light". I could not do this. I then found a support phone number online for the indicated manufacturer and called them. Their representative informed me that the company listed as manufacturer does not make or service this product. After transferring me to the actual manufacturer's support line, I was able to remove the end cap (only one cap is removed). After replacing the bulb, I reassembled the light and it no longer works.
