I come across this SnapPower Duplex Guidelight online looks cool, did anyone used them before?

I'm think of getting a couple of them but I need your advice.

any experience.

Interesting!
I like the tabs on the sides (H&N)
Don't see any mention of UL or any NRTL at the link.
I wonder if you can trip an AFCI when you install it??

I'd like to find out a lot more about this before I would think about installing any.
I am very concerned about tabs that sit on top of the screws as a power connection.
This could also cause switched receptacles to act weird and cause shorts in installations with a metal box.

They claim UL listing, but their web site looks to be pure marketing BS. That's unfortunate, as it undermines their credibility.

I like the idea; I don't like the price.

That would be a fairly simple circuit to come up with and I doubt that it would cause an AFCI trip.

Hey, guys...
I found a picture of one of these that shows the UL label.

I still don't like the connection method but at least we now know that UL has seen these things.

Well those LEDs are obviously super-low power so I don't see much of a risk. We've had isolation transformer shaver outlets that supplied up to 20 VA with a near-identical setup for decades without problems. The wires are connected to spring-terminals in the box and the actual socket with transformer just snaps in and is fixed with two screws.
