Everyone has a dark closet or pantry that could use a little extra light, so we decided to put this battery powered Cordless Ceiling/Wall Light with wireless remote control from Sierra Tools to the test. The light contains 18, energy efficient, LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs that provide a good bit of light.
Installation was fairly simple:
- Mount the light base on a wall or ceiling.
- Insert 4 AA batteries (not included) in the light.
- Attach the light to the base.
- Insert special battery (not included) in the remote control.
- Attach the remote control to a wall or door frame.
The LED light and remote control worked as advertised and might be just what you need to brighten up those dark spots in your home. However, finding the special, nonstandard battery for the remote control wasn’t easy, and required a trip to a specialty battery store.

Chelsea McKinley: So we’re hoping that finding this will help us out.

Chelsea McKinley: Oh, cool. Oh, wow! That’s bright.
Danny Lipford: Now to figure out exactly where to put it. Can you see all right? Need some light?
