It's late at night and you forgot to leave the porch light on. Even if you don't trip over something on the way to your door, it still takes five minutes to get your key in the lock. But with the MAXSA battery-powered wall sconce installed by your door, there's no need to stumble around in the dark. You get light where you want it, when you need it. The built-in motion sensor detects movement up to 22 feet away, so it illuminates your porch, walkway or garage until you can get safely inside.

The sconce comes in an elegant classical style that looks good day and night. But it's also waterproof and durable. And the light sensor in the sconce only activates when it's dark and you need extra illumination.

The four "C" batteries (not included) last for about a year with normal use, and the super bright LED lights will last up to 30,000 hours — that's about 45 years of typical use. The one piece design makes it easy to install, and there's no need to worry about wiring or complicated installation.

MAXSA 40219 LED Wall Sconce Reviews

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I rent and can't afford to pay the landlord's electrician to install a wired in porch light for a small fenced in patio. It took me 5 minutes to install and provides good bright light so I can see my gas grill, woodpile and provide motion detection security. Well worth the cos,, it outpreforms all the others I have seen. No buyers remorse on this light-it works better than I expected.

Pros: Very affordable for a LED motion detector light, Very good light output. Has a mirror on the back to reflect otherwise wasted light to the front and sides. Easy to mount. Plastic, but well built.

Cons: Takes (3) "C" batteries, a small price to pay for light.

MAXSA 40219 LED Wall Sconce

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received my wall sconce and the shipping box looked as if someone had stuck a steel bar through it and the light was destroyed. I called Crutchfield customer service and without hesitation they offered a replacement even though it was not their fault. The customer service rep offered "special handling" on this one. I received my replacement light and noticed Crutchfield's shipping department had removed the light from its original box, wrapped the entire thing in bubble wrap and placed it back in the box. This one arrived intact. That is why I buy from Crutchfield. The mounting bracket has two slots but it didn't seem very stable with just the two screws supplied. Once it was level I ran a third screw through it and it seemed much more secure. For being powered by 4 C batteries it puts out a lot of light. The motion/photo sensor works per the product specs; lit as long as there is motion and then for 30 seconds after the last detected movement. Another reviewer mentioned the holes/screws that hold the glass panes in. Mine looked like they drilled 2 or 3 holes in the battery housing to find the matching holes in the frame, but this is concealed by the top cover. The quality of the materials is satisfactory, the panes are glass (not plastic) and the frame is aluminum. Even though the quality of assembly is questionable I would recommend this product. I suggest you request the special handling offered by Crutchfield to make sure it arrives in one piece.



MAXSA 40219 LED Wall Sconce

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Positives: The functionality, appearance, and ease of mounting of the light are all very good.

Negatives: The quality of the product is less than desired. The method of retaining the glass panes is suspect and there was evidence that my unit had undergone some re-work prior to packaging. Upon un-packing I found that one of the glass panes was dislodged. While taking the unit apart to correct, it was evident that the four small screws that hold the bulb had been misaligned and the holes enlarged to allow assemble. Two of the four screws were already stripped. I purchased four new oversized screws and eventually got the thing back together.

Now it looks and works fine. I just hope I don't have to take it apart again!



Maxsa 40219 Battery pack wall sconce

Written by: Bill from Oakland, CA on September 26, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We needed exterior exit lighting for 8 doors on a 30,000 square foot warehouse building. Providing AC power would have meant over 1/2 mile of conduit and more than a mile of installed wiring.

We purchased the Maxsa exterior battery pack LED lighting units and were pleasantly surprised at the amount of illumination they produce. The sconces are very well made and attractive. We look forward to seeing other lighting designs with the same performance.

Thanks for the great service, Bill

Specifications & Dimensions


Overview: The MAXSA LED Outdoor Wall Sconce (40219) is battery-powered and motion-activate. It is perfect for porches, doorways, or around the house.

5 LED Lights: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce features 5 super-bright LED lights which automatically turn on when motion is detected at night.

Note: The LED lights can last up to 30,000 hours (45 years).

Built-in Motion Sensor: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce has a built-in motion sensor, which automatically turns on the light when movement of a heat source (such as people, animals, or cars) is detected in the area. The light remains on while motion continues to be detected in the area.

Note: The Motion sensor has a detection area of approximately 22' within a 100° angle of the sensor. The sensor is more sensitive to movement across the detection area than movement directly towards or away from the sensor.

Built-in Photo Sensor: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce also has a built-in photo sensor so that the unit turns on at  night.

Note: At night the LED lights will remain on for approximately 30 seconds after the last detected movement. If a movement is detected while the lights are on, the light duration will be reset and remain on for another approximately 30 seconds.

Weatherproof Housing: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce has a durable weatherproof housing (IP33) and circuitry (IP44). It features a metal and plastic body with glass panels and a mirrored rear reflector.

Mounting & Installation: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce features a one piece wall-mount design that is easy to install with no wiring. The included mounting bracket and screws can be used to mount the LED Outdoor Wall Sconce securely to a wall. Ideally, the LED Outdoor Wall Sconce should be mounted with the detector at the height of or above the objects to be detected.

Note: The selected location should not be near light sources such as street or porch lighting as these may cause the LED Outdoor Sconce to turn off automatically. The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce should also be installed away from heaters, air conditioners, barbecues, vents, and large reflective surfaces; such as swimming pools and Jacuzzis, and white walls.

Battery Powered: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce required 4 C cell batteries (not included). The batteries typically last up to 1 year under normal use.

Note: The LED Outdoor Wall Sconce may function irregularly or not a all at temperatures near or below freezing (32°F/0°C). Normal operation will return when the temperature rises.
