Be ready for an extended power failure with Ideal’s rechargeable, long-lasting, LED blackout light. The SK638 is an automatic emergency power failure light that turns on when the power goes out. When plugged in with the UL-approved adapter, the lights come on as soon as the power goes out, and they last up to 16 hours. Unlike normal flashlights, the SK638 turns itself on, lighting your way in the dark. Lightweight and with a built-in carry handle, it's portable, versatile, and always ready when you need it. This attractive unit will fit into the décor of any room in your home, adding safety and security with a touch of class. Rechargeable The battery can be recharged over and over and the LED bulbs will last for years. Simply plug the removable 6' AC adapter into a standard 110-volt outlet, choose your settings, and you're ready for when the lights go out. Long-lasting With the 6-volt battery fully charged, the SK638 provides up to 8 hours of light at full power (6 LED bulbs), and up to 16 hours at half power (3 LED bulbs). Don't worry, even at half-power our high-efficiency, high-output LEDs provide plenty of light. The battery will last for many years if used properly, and is replaceable. Portable & Versatile The removable 6' AC adapter and the built-in handle make it completely portable and very versatile. It is useful in so many ways and places! Suggested installations include: Home Garage Country home Workshop Small business Office It can also be used as a portable flashlight, a work light, for auto and outdoor repairs, and is great for camping! Night Light The SK638 includes an optional night light feature. Soft lighting is provided at night by a single LED. A built-in photocell light sensor can turn on the night light whenever it gets dark, or you can set it to always keep a single LED on. And if the power goes out, the unit defaults to emergency mode, turning on all the LEDs. Or you can turn off this feature entirely. Safety & Security Have you considered how you would find your way around during a power failure? Do you have little children or aging parents at home? How about guests or visitors? Emergency lighting is something every home, business, and residence should have in place. Additional features The light features an “on-off” switch. When the lights come on and you do not need them, just turn the unit off. For indoor use only. The box includes the main light unit, a 6' AC adapter, wall plugs with screws for mounting, and installation instructions.

I firstly checked commercial emergency lights, but they are designed to last only up to 90 minutes, long enough for the facility workers and visitors to evacuate, but too short for the residents to stay inside safely. I also checked residential night/emergency lights, but they are basically designed as all-night lights with a ambient light sensor that can also be used as tiny flash lights once power is removed.
This "Ideal" product smeet my above requirements as a home emergency light. It emits very bright LED lighting for up to 8 hours as the manufacturer claims. It lights bright enough for preparing emergency food in our kitchen.
There are two control switches:
- Lighting: FULL/HALF/OFF
- Night light: ON/AUTO/OFF
The lighting level switch changes the number of LEDs, 3 or 6.The main light turns on as soon as the power supply is removed. The blue LED indicator tells the unit is on power. The night light is nothing but one of the LEDs lighting dim.
The housing is very compact, simple, and handsome with no weired/odd decoration. Its color should blend with most whitish walls.
The included power supply is a small 12VDC wall wart with a very popular plug size and polarity so that it can be easily substituted with a non-genuine one.
One feature I miss is automatic turn on/off for the main LED. I wish a switch to make it automatically turn off when the ambient is bright enough. Of course the manual switch can perform this.
Since I just installed it last weekend, I don't know how long the battery will last in an emergency situation, neither do I know the battery's life time. Oh, the replacement battery type information should have been printed on the product for easy replacement. It currently only says "6V lead acid."
This product seems to light significantly brighter than SK636, a sister product with much longer operation time, and for its more handsome shape and lower price, there might be no reason to go to the big sister if you are happy with the 4-8 hour operation time.
Another important feature is the advertised run time. I haven't actually done a test on tis feature, but I had a 35 minute blackout in the neighborhood, and the fixture performed perfectly.
