The all white BPA and lead free GloMate, once illuminated, can turn a constant blue, green or pink; or rainbow mode which will cycle between all colors. The built in NiMH rechargeable batteries and low-voltage charging base helps the GloMate provide up to 10 hours of constant light when fully charged.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not only a Father, but, as of last December/2009, a new Grandfather as well, so when I saw this odd looking product, I said to myself, I've got to try this one out. My review here will come in two parts, with this initial review on the item itself and not yet "tested" by my Grandson, Finn, who I'll be seeing over the Thanksgiving holiday. I'll then update my review as to how he reacted and responded to this unique lighting device. My first concern is safety for this nightlight is rated for 2 years and up in age. It has no sharp edges at all and is one piece of molded semi-hard rubberized material and nothing on the exterior can be pulled off or pose a choking hazard. I was concerned in the base where smooth "battery charging" contacts are located for charging off the base unit (which remains separated and away from baby during this nightlight;'s use), that there might be a tiny level of current across the contacts if baby licks or puts a wet mouth there. I'm relieved to say that my multi-meter which can detect even a tiny amount of current flow, read zero the entire time, thus, there is absolutely no current at these contacts. The Mobi charges on it's base which has a red ring of light (very dim) around base that changes to green when it is fully charged (an hour or so). Lifting the Mobi off of base turns it on immediately to a soft green glow. It is capable of single colors in red, blue, green, yellow as well as a setting to allow it to go through a cycle of smooth and gradual color changes, displaying all the colors it offers. Additionally, you can hold down the power button on the bottom of the Mobi and it will cycle into a 15 minute timer mode and then go off. It's sealed internal lithium battery is good for hours of use.Read more ›

My 11-year old granddaughters think the Mobi Tykelight GloMate Plus is `Totally Awesome!' He is their chosen nightlight because they love his shape and colors. They also use him as a flashlight if they need to get up in the night.

Mobi emits a bright glow in a choice of colors. His surface is hard, but all smooth curves -- which feel good in the hand, but perhaps not so comfortable to roll over on if he was taken into a child's bed. I had to fiddle with the base before it started charging, but as I was about to give up it kicked in and worked perfectly. Mobi softly lights the room enough to see into the far corners. A small button sets the timer to slowly dim and go off in 15 minutes. If the timer button is not set, the nightlight glows for 8+ hours off its base. It takes at least 4 hours to recharge. Parked on its base, it automatically lights up during a power failure so it is a great safety light. The base plugs into an outlet via a cord similar to a cellular phone charger. The warranty is only for 90 days and neither the batteries nor the lights can be replaced by the consumer. I'll update this review when the Mobi no longer works to give an idea of its lifespan. A short lifespan would reduce the number of stars I've awarded.

If your baby or toddler is young enough to get the electrical contacts damp or wet, Mobi should remain out of reach. However, for everyone else the portability is a real asset. This is a great idea for all ages.

UPDATE 2/15/2011: My little guy is now 12.5mos and loved his little Mobi glowfriend. That said, he handled it a lot and while it appeared to be no worse for the wear because of that, there's something wonky going on with the way it connects to the charger base. It appears to still charge, but the red-to-green base ring the indicates charge doesn't stay steadily on. Sometimes it flickers between the two. Other times, the Glomate suddenly turns on while on the base, just as if it was on that 15-minute removal timer. Not sure what the deal is. A little sad I can't rely on the green glow fo the base ring anymore.

Since the birth of our son last January, we've used a small monkey lamp as our night light. That light gave off an amberish glow that I'd always felt was a little too bright. Plus it was plugged, so as our little became more mobile I had to place it strategically.

Before trying this Mobi light we tried Cloud B Twilight Sea Turtle...this was a nice option except it's difficult to find a place that allows for maximum benefit.

I like the portability AND durability of this light. Not that I recommend it as a teething toy BUT if your little happens to mouth about 90% of the body you probably don't have to freak.

The light options are nice, but quite bright in an otherwise pitch dark room. The red option is the dimmest, but red feels creepy. I love the rainbow option though. That's the hypnotic part. And I swear I see a 'heart' shape in the light.

Half the time, I actually just rely on the green 'charged' ring indicator due to its brightness. Though if Mobi man isn't resting evenly on the charger it causes the ring light to flicker.

Overall a cute and very kid-friendly night light.

The electrical contacts between the charging station and the light are awful, so our charging station blinks green ALL THE TIME day and night. At first it blinks red/green when it charges up, which I read is normal, so I threw away the packaging thinking it worked fine. A couple days later it was STILL blinking green, and it won't stop. I've tried cleaning the contacts and repositioning it. I've thrown away the packaging (which I had to cut in a million pieces to open) so I can't return it, though it is clearly defective.
I owned the last model that plugged in with no charging base and LOVED it. They should have kept the old design!
Anyway, don't throw out the package for several days until you are sure it works properly!
