Our favorite wireless lights, battery operated lights, and solar lights around our home to improve closets, kitchens, landscaping, hallways, and anywhere without hiring an electrician.
Nerd alert. I never thought I’d research and write an entire post about wireless lights but here we are.
The “beauty” of living in an older house is our electrician has practically become our best friend. Outlets are in weird places. Some switches in this place are still a mystery. And there are days when I think, “Why isn’t there a light here?” (Okay, actually, new houses are like that too.)
The electrician bill has added up for sure, but one thing I’ve discovered in this whole journey is battery operated lights and solar lights basically rock!
We’ve used them all over our house, and these are the absolute best based on our experience and their reviews.

We had bad experiences with solar lights before and didn’t have high hopes for these lights but were willing to try them out. Game changer!
These solar spotlights make our house exterior look amazing at night and like we paid a landscaper big money to install wired uplights.
They’ve been going strong for a month, and so far, we haven’t had any issues.
When the florescent lights under our cabinets started burning out in our kitchen (since I didn’t really love the look of the florescents anyway), I wanted to try a wireless rechargeable option. These work amazing!
They’re magnetic too if you want to use them on metal shelving in a workshop or pantry. My only complaint is I wish they had a remote option. But all in all, I’m happy with them.
I really wanted a picture light above this printable art in our hallway, but I didn’t want to have permanent electricity wired in the wall. This little light worked exactly like I hoped.
I made it look antique by applying some antique gold paint to it (would have used Rub n Buff but I was out). It’s super light so it can hang with just Command strips without any wall damage.
I wish it were rechargeable and didn’t require new batteries every so often, but that’s my only complaint.
The thing that bugs me about this little hallway nook under our stairs is there is no light to help us see inside of this closet. I stuck this light on the ceiling and it did the trick!
The cool thing is it has a motion sensor so we don’t have to worry about a switch.
I feel way fancy when I open my closet doors and the angels sing and my clothes illuminate. Okay, angels don’t sing. But the illuminating part does! Our closets feel so upscale with these lights now.
I put up these wall sconces in our office and placed these puck lights inside thinking I would eventually have them hardwired, and I never did. They work so well as wireless lights that I just left them. It’s been a little over 7 months, and I haven’t had to replace the batteries yet.
