How much does shipping cost?

In addition to carrier-calculated rates, we currently offer a flat rate economy shipping option on most orders within the continental US. The rate ranges from $3.99 to $13.99 depending on the weight of the package. While we try to make it available to everyone, the carriers have size, weight, and location limitations that exclude certain shipments. If your order and shipping details qualify for a flat rate economy shipping service, you will see that as one of the shipping method options at checkout.

How long will my order take to arrive?

All orders take about 1-2 business days to process, and then an additional 2-6 business days for shipping within the US, or 6-12 business days for shipping to Canada. Delivery times are only estimates and may vary as we offer several shipping options through multiple carriers.

Which countries do you ship to?

We currently ship to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Will I pay duty fees if I am international?

Customs and duties are fees applied to imported goods or products into your country. Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and cannot predict if they will be charged or not. Likewise, if they are charged we have no control over the amount that is collected. There are some cases when duties fees are not collected at all.When ordering from SnapPower, you are responsible for these fees as well as assuring that you can lawfully import them into your country.

Are batteries required?

Absolutely not. Our products draw power directly from the outlet.

What if my outlets are horizontal?

Good news, SnapPower has launched a Horizontal GuideLight with the LEDs located on the long side of the cover plate. Also, our other outlet products can be installed horizontally and work just fine as well if you want directional light from the side; just make sure to install where the bottom of our plate lines up with the ground side of the outlet. We have many customers who have done this and love it!

3-Way Switches

Double Gang Switches

Triple Gang Switches

Which light switches are the SwitchLights compatible with?

There are likely 2 types of light switches in your home, and we have a SwitchLight for both! 

1. Single gang, single pole switches. This means that the SwitchLight installs over a single light switch, and that the SwitchLight will work in areas where one light switch controls the overhead lights. These are typically found in bathrooms and small rooms, where one switch controls the overhead lights.  Our SwitchLight is perfect for those.

2. 3-way switches. These are the areas where 2 or more switches control one set of overhead lights. These are typically found in hallways and larger bedrooms & bathrooms. Our SwitchLight for 3-way switches is perfect for those.

Please note that areas with two light switches controlling the same overhead lights (like a hallway) sometimes have the light switches installed upside down (with the screw terminals on the left hand side of the light switch instead of the right hand side). If this is the case, the light switch will need to be turned around so that the screw terminals are on the right hand side of the switch before the SwitchLight is installed.

Will the SwitchLight work in a location where the overhead lights are controlled by two or more different switches?

Yes! We now how The SwitchLight for 3-way Switches. This product is compatible in areas where 2 or more switches control the over head lights.

Will the SwitchLight work on a dimmer switch, motion sensing light switch or a smart light switch?

No, the SwitchLight only works with standard toggle and decor light switches. The SwitchLight will not work on dimmers, motion sensing, or smart light switches because they do not have the required screw terminals for the SwitchLight to draw power from.

Is the SwitchLight ETL listed?

Yes! The SwitchLight has been designed to the highest standards of safety, and is ETL listed in the US and Canada.

How much energy does the SwitchLight use?

The SnapPower SwitchLight is designed to be energy efficient, and uses less than 10 cents of energy for the entire year.

Will the SwitchLight work upside-down (with lights pointed up)?

The SwitchLight is designed to pull power from the screws on the right hand side of the light switch, which means the SwitchLight will install with the lights pointing down. If you want the SwitchLight to install with the lights pointing up, you will need to turn off the power and turn your light switch around so that the screws are on the left hand side of the light switch.

Does the SwitchLight work on dimmer switches.

No. The SwitchLight works on standard Toggle or Rocker light switches.
