Those little LED moonlights are good for like 100,000 hours of burn time. Most people leave them on 24 hours a day.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

I agree with Neilan. Your regular light will cancel the LED out while they are on. You can run it all the time, or put it on a timer.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
