When this LE book light arrived I was impressed with the size of it. It was a bit bigger then most book lamps I have tried in the past, yet still portable and handy. It came in a decent box which was easy to see what the product was and what it looked like. The side of the box has a list of details about the book light. It did come partly charged as the light worked straight away. However I still plugged it in with the included USB lead to fully charge use it a couple of times until the light drained and recharged a few times before fully testing and reviewing, to make sure it has a realistic results.
Packaging and design
The light came with a small info card of the company. This included contact details and website to claim extra 6 months warranty.
Thanks to the lights super flexible goose-neck style “neck/pole”, you can point it in any direction. It has a small square on the clip base, which is where the touch screen sensor is. A very light touch and the light turns on dim. It takes 4 taps to cycle through. Tap it once more, medium. Tap it again and you get full brightness, and the last tap turns it back off.
I am also impressed that the light has a faint red led light behind the logo, to show when the book light is charging. This red light goes off when fully charged. It is a little faint, but many book clip lights I have tried over the years never had such a feature, and this is a great addition. No longer do i need to check the power on the USB HUB I use to charge devices.
Just look how bright it goes!
(Excuse the messy wall in the background. I am finally stripping off the messy lining paper that a previous tenant put up)
Even though you can see how bright it looks, my phone sensor would have dimmed it so you cannot see the full brightness in this photo. All i can say is, don’t look at the light when full brightness.
Full Brightness Level, Battery Test
After a couple of recharges and drains over 3 days I decided to do a full test. I charged up the light to full, then put it on the brightest setting while starting a stopwatch on my phone. It was around the 2 hour mark that the light dimmed to the low brightness setting. It was then after 3 hours 30 that the light went out completely. However it would be around the 2 hour 24 minute mark that the light became too dim to read from. So for the last hour it was more of a little night-light.
Lowest Brightness Level, Battery Test
After I have recharged the led light up again, I ran the same test on lowest brightness.
After a long 21 hours, the light slowly started to dim down. At around 22 hours the light become dim to the point it could only be used as a night-light. Meanwhile the light completely went out at around the 25 hour mark.
During our tests, the brightest setting gave us just a little over 2 hours of bright light until it became too dim to read with. Whilst the low brightness setting gave us a massive 21-22 hours of readable light. Therefore you can expect that you will need to charge this led light between every 2 and 21 hours of use.
This led book light is built to high quality. Its battery life is good depending on what brightness level you have it on. It is worth the cost, and very flexible.
