OxyLED T-02s Rechargeable Motion Sensing LED Light Stick

On the surface, this seemed like one of those products that has so many applications, you weren’t even sure where to start trying it. And then, slowly but surely, you found that each and every place you thought about presented problems that made using in that location no longer feasible. So while I think the product is made fairly well and gives off a bunch of light, for me at least, this OxyLED T-02S Motion Sensing Light missed the mark.

I first thought it would make a wonderful under-cabinet light. Except that when the lights are even slightly on (we have them on dimmers), the LED Stick won’t come on. The proximity sensor seems a little wonky, too, because while 95% of the time it senses when there’s motion within about 5 feet, the other times we have to “tap-tap” the sensor for the light to come on. Then we tried it in a closet. Again, the ambient light in the room made whether the OxyLEd T02S came on a 50-50 proposition. Okay, so we then tired it in the pantry. Again, our old friend ambient light rained on my parade. But, the odds of the OxyLED t-02S lighting went to about 80-20. In the end we put it on the linen cabinet counter in the hall, and instead of turning on the lights to walk down it, the OxyLED Motion Sensing Light usually switches on and gives plenty of light. It has a solidly built brushed aluminum body that feels sleek but is also surprisingly light. It has 20 bright white LED’s and an On/Off toggle switch on the side.

This seems like a product that, while well built and very bright, is not quite ready for prime time. There also seems to be some real quality control issues, but I can’t say I experienced any of them, as the T-02S I received functioned fairly well, except for a moody motion sensor. It’s rechargeable, needs no batteries, and the charge lasts a loooong time. It would be nice for a traditional plug instead of a microUSB one to charge it, but I don’t feel that’s a deal breaker. I would recommend that instead of peeling off the backing and using the included adhesive strip right from jump street, do what we did and tape it up with blue or green masking tape first and insure that it works to your liking in your chosen space. At $22.99, it feels pricey, and I would like to see it come in at under $20 to be a real value. From OxyLED’s Amazon page, “Reliable and friendly customer service: ready to respond within 24 hours, 30-day money back guarantee, 12 month replacement warranty and lifetime support guarantee”. So there’s that to fall back on should the light falter. I liked the OxyLED T-02S Motion Sensing Light, not loved it, and feel there’s room to improve, but could be incredibly useful once they iron out the kinks.
