SnapPower releases GuideLight 2 Plus with improved lighting, GFCI compatibility


If you’ve been reading Techaeris for awhile, you may recall that last March we took a look at several SnapPower products and came away impressed. Some highlights included quick and easy installation, good price, and nice features on both the GuideLight and Charger options. SnapPower has recently released an update to the GuideLight, the GuideLight 2 Plus. The new LED light adds several nice features while still maintaining the same easy installation and affordable price.

The first and likely most noticeable difference comes with the use of a new diffused light bar. The original GuideLight featured three LEDs for a sharper lighting experience. The new light bar will produce a softer overall light. The new GuideLight 2 Plus also includes brightness control to further customize your lighting experience. Last but not least in terms of new features is an on/off switch. This will let you easily turn the light bar on or off using a dedicated button on the front of the wall plate.

The GuideLight 2 Plus also ushers in a first for SnapPower, with a GFCI compatible version available. GFCI outlets are usually found in kitchens and bathrooms and can be distinguished by the Test and Reset buttons found between the two outlets. Now you’re free to add an extra bit of lighting via your GFCI outlets if you so choose.

The SnapPower GuideLight 2 Plus includes a similar discount structure to the rest of SnapPower’s products, where buying more will end up saving you some money. Even for the individual price of $19USD you won’t be spending a ton if you just need one LED-lit outlet cover.
