Is that something you HAVE, or just something you would like to have?

I've never seen one myself.

I'd like to know where to get one of those myself!

That does not look like a light emitting receptacle but rather a light emitting cover plate. It looks extra thick and the plate would cover a light installed in a receptacle.
I would see if your neighbour will let you remove one of them and look for a name on the back.

If you find out a model #, a manufacturer, or where to get one, please let us know!

Found something about a patent for this. Appears the listed wall plate stays on and this thinggy screws over it. There a few different versions...
Electro-luminescent - LED - push activation....
I think they are kinda cool. Easy to sell to customers. I hate night lights. I hate replacing those stupid little bulbs, I hate it when my kids take them and move them. I won't buy them anymore. But a goofy 1/2" wall plate, that could work!!

The GFI in that picture could be attached to the cover plate, not the wall box. Then the cover plate is screwed into the top and bottom of the wall-box. (The cover plate screw locations seem to support this.)

I found a place that seems to sell these, but haven't ordered one yet: http://www.permaglo.com/wayfinder2.html

Nice...but kind of expensive
My last 2 LED night lights were about $5 for the pair

Scuba_Dave, were your less-expensive ones the same style? I like the convenience of not having to unplug a night light every time I need to use the outlet.

This is an interesting compromise, and adds two outlets to boot: http://www.jascoproducts.com/product...&idcategory=32

No, I added a 2nd outlet in the bathroom
So no need to unplug the night light
Other nite lights are in areas where I don't have to unplug either
