Maxwell's Light cannot be destroyed and does not drain sanity when standing next to it. It is possible to light a Maxwell's Light with a Torch or Fire Staff. Standing among the eyes in the shadows around Maxwell's Lights will not cause them to disappear.
If the player sleeps near a Maxwell's Light, it will not light up upon waking up until they move out of the Light's radius.
- Before the End of the Beginning update, Maxwell's Light used the same model as Night Lights.
- Some of the Maxwell's Lights in Chapter 6 have a much smaller light radius than those in Chapter 5.
- Maxwell's Lights make an appearance in Klei's Don't Starve Together promo, "A New Reign."
