To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
For a reading light where you have no usable outlet, this works, BUT just barely. See PROS and CONS below. I hunted for a cordless floor light with minimal profile for reading light in a room where other light sources have been dimmed, and this one looked to be the strongest such light. It's the best of a poor selection, but at least it works for the purpose. Hopefully someone or better technology will improve the lumens (without shortening the battery life) and make the recharge location more visible when the light is off (and in need of recharging). PROS -Because you can adjust the head (e.g. the flexible "neck"), you can direct the light to the page, and the light will illuminate a page if placed on the floor close to you, but really only one page is illuminated. It's enough light, just enough for me, however someone with vision problems might not think it enough. -The battery life is adequate for an evening, but not much more. -The USB connection lets me plug it in with ease for re-charging, IF the room is well light (see CONS for more on this). -Light allows you to select illumination "color"/level (see more under CONS) CONS: -This light was the best of what I could currently find (Autumn 2020), and it does work for reading--BUT it would NOT be enough for doing hobby work requiring really good illumination. It just doesn't cast light far enough or strongly enough IMHO. -The black USB plug and the black base of the lamp can make it a challenge to find the opening for the USB in a dim room. -The button for turning the light on/selecting the light "color"(warm/cool) is a bit awkward--have to press multiple times to turn it off.
If this review was helpful, please let me know. Thank you.
The light is light but the cord after you put the light together doesn't fit into the tube which holds the entire cord. It came with no instructions. I will be returning this one but looking for a better one that is still cordless. the ease of use was a great feature-I haven't given up yet!
It only puts out a bright light if it's fully charged, so you will need to leave it plugged in every night if you use it much at all during the day. However it's lightweight. Reasonably nice looking, unobstrusive.
