When thousands of Amazon shoppers are leaving glowing, five-star reviews for lights, you know you have something special on your hands. That’s precisely the case with Brilliant Evolution Wireless LED lights, which fit into tight spots—under cabinets, in closets, above wall art—to provide concentrated task lighting.

Best of all, they’re easy to install and remove yourself, no electrician required. Scratch that—best of all is that they’re up to almost 50 percent off on Amazon today. Snap ‘em up before this deal goes dark!

Now, when I say easy, I don’t mean screw-in-a-lightbulb easy. Brilliant Evolution lights are wireless, battery-operated, remote-controlled LED systems—an evolved version of a bulb, you could say. All you need is a screwdriver and perhaps some adhesive tape to install these small, round pucks and slim bars. Then, voila—let there be light!

And not just any light. Brilliant Evolution LED lights emit some serious beams—depending on the model, anywhere from 55 to 200 lumens. In LED terms, that’s a bright spot, especially for focused light. Plus, you’re in full control, thanks to a wireless remote that lets you dim the brightness or turn the light on and off from up to 15 feet away.

Want even more control? Set the optional timer, so you won’t have to worry about forgetting to shut them off. LED lights already use about 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last about 25 times longer—saving you as much as $75 a month in energy bills. With Amazon’s massive daily deal, that amounts to savings from start to finish.

The sale includes products to shed light on almost every situation—from sheds and showers to laundry rooms and cabinets. Some incorporate motion detectors, and others even change colors. Here are a few I’ve taken a shine to.

Put a spotlight on your countertops (or any other focal point) with 55 lumens of concentrated illumination. A dimmer, programmable timer, and 100 hours of battery life (that’s about four times more than other puck lights) make these a true standout—and at 48 percent off, a total score.

“These lights have changed the way I feel about my kitchen and life and bedroom closet on a fundamental level,” wrote one thrilled customer who provided photos of their newly illuminated kitchen. “ Combined with a buttload of rechargeable batteries, they’re an affordable, life-changing force to be reckoned with.”

“I'm using them as overhead accent lights for some of my Collectibles in my living room ! They work great, and give off enough light for my needs!,” wrote another. “Exactly what I was looking for!”

Batteries last a very long time. Would but again in a heart beat.”

If pucks aren’t your speed, try a slim LED light bar. This Brilliant Evolution model produces a slightly stronger 65 lumens of warm, white glow, installs with either screws or adhesive tape, and lets you truly focus on the task at hand.

“I desperately needed some illumination under a dark cabinet where our Keurig resides and needed something attractive, easy to install and operate, cordless, unobtrusive and, of course, light the area,” wrote a happy customer. “This light bar far exceeded my expectations as it fulfilled all my needs; the best part being the led lights throw ample, bright light and the adhesive 3M tape secured the bar under my cabinet thereby eliminating the need for screws...total installation time about 3 minutes!”

Elevate your LED light game with this ceiling model—42 percent off today—that’s ideal for outdoor spaces, like porches and garages, as well as transient spots like closets and entryways. It includes a motion detector that picks up movement from up to 20 feet away and shuts off after 30 seconds. It’s inherently energy efficient but preserves even more power by operating only in darkness.

“This light was exactly what I needed! We don’t have lights in our closets and This was an inexpensive, easy fix,” wrote a satisfied customer. “We were worried that the motion sensor would be too sensitive but it only turns on when we open the closet door. We were also worried it wouldn’t be bright enough! Pleasantly surprised! Ordering more for our other closets.”
