Taking to social media to share her find, the woman said she was embarrassed to admit she’d only just discovered it.

“I was today years old when I realised I could actually have lamps on my side tables without the need to run ugly cords across the room, thanks to rechargeable light bulbs,” she wrote.

“So of course I made a Kmart run for the Leo table lamps and added some IKEA light shades. Now I can't wait for it to get dark!”

Hundreds of others said they had no idea rechargeable light bulbs existed and shared their excitement at the fact they could easily purchase them online.

“I had no idea that was even a thing! Such a great idea. I moved our entire bed around the room to make sure the lamp could be plugged in without the need for extension cords,” one person commented.

“Wait... You are telling me there are such things as rechargeable light bulbs?!? Oh, this is very exciting!” added another.

“What is this wizardry you speak of?! Rechargeable light globes? Where do I get some, please? Your styling is beautiful,” commented a third.


How do they work?

Needless to say, the woman's post was also flooded with questions about where you can buy rechargeable light bulbs and exactly how they work.

She added that she purchased the lamp from Kmart, the shades from IKEA and the rechargeable light bulbs from Amazon.

“I cut the cords off because the whole point is that I wanted the lamps to be cordless,” she said.

The battery-powered bulbs have been designed to be energy-efficient and assist in a blackout or as emergency lighting if needed.
