John Lewis Bathroom Shaver Light
looks good, poor quality construction
I'd expected a better quality of finish on this product. It looks okay from a distance but the smart curved front bezel hides warped and poorly constructed plastics. As with many light fittings the mounting design on this is ill-conceived - workable but not logical.

Some reviews have suggested the shaver socket would be better on the right. It can be - you just need to install updide-down! The pull-cord exits from the side so the orientation makes no difference (except that the word 'shaver' is the wrong way up). The socket is live all the time so you can charge a toothbrush when the light is off. The difficulty in installing is related only to the existing length of wire you have and the surface to need to fix to - the product itself presents no problems except for the fact that the wire connection is to the far side of the product so 10" to 12" of wire is needed. You well need someone to hold the light while connecting the cable. Looks stylish once installed.

I am very pleased with how the light looks and functions

This is a good quality light. It takes two bulbs which give a nice bright light. It is actually curved (towards you), which you can't tell at all from the picture.

24/7 toothbrush charging - at last !
At last a light fitting that charges the toothbrush all the time as the 'shaver socket' by-passes the on off pull cord. This was the items best point but surprisingly not mentioned in the items description.
So why only 'good' - because it is quite difficult to install - needs more flex on the connections to the power inside the body of the light. Took nearly an hour to put up.
But if you want to have a fully charged tooth brush this is a must buy. Stylish and gives plenty of light.
If you wanted to use as a shaving socket and were right handed you would wonder why the shaving socket is to the left of the light so the shaving lead cuts across the mirror.
Full marks for solving my problem of charging my tooth brush though .
Worth the money for just for that !

Great bathroom addition
First one arrived with the glass front in pieces. However this was quickly replaced by an extremely efficient customer services dept. Light now fitted and looks great. Not tried out the shaver socket yet.

Sleek over mirror shaver light
This fitment is perfect for over a mirror in the bathroom. It looks great and sheds just the right amount of light.
