    Book Lovers Will Love This!

    Bought this for my mum who had a very bulky light while reading books and had to change the battery after every 100 pages.This little light, the charge lasts a very long time! Lasts through two thick whole books before my mum has to charge it again.Definitely recommend for booklovers!

    Nice book light!

    I love to read in bed at night and so do my kids. I bought a single one of these and use it nightly so I decided to get the kids one too. It holds a charge really well. I think it lasted about a month before I had to charge it. It charges quickly. I love that the usb port is built in and I don’t have to keep track of another charging cord. It stays on the page well, has multiple light features and I like the brightness adjustments.

    Perfect for reading in bed or under a blanket

    It fits nicely on your book and isn’t too bulky and doesn’t move around. I like that it has three different light options perfect for nighttime reading and usb charging

    It has 5 different levels of brightness and 3 different colors.

    It sometimes slides off you have to clip it on a good amount of pages.

    Best book light with three different lighting colors all have different brightness, the light head turns left and right as well as can be moved down. Holds your page & is rechargeable! This is best thing since sliced bread!

    Cute & Compact

    I love reading but don’t always want to cut on a bright light. I found this one and the reviews seemed good. After using it for a while I can say it’s great! It has various settings so you can adjust the light to your comfort level. I’m glad I bought it! Highly recommend!

    Great little light

    Great little light, I was skeptical I would use the amber color but have found reading in the dark with the amber light is very easy on my eyes. More than bright enough, regardless of the light color you choose, I find about half power is ample light to read comfortably, on full power the bright white feature would easily fill a whole room. Also like that the USB is directly attached, no keep for keeping track of a charging cable.

    Perfect for reading and not disturbing others

    There are two hues of light color. There is one that is more LED bright and a second that is yellow bright. There are varying degrees of light that you can use and it is super lightweight and clips easily to your book.

    good battery life, light sensitivity

    love this reading light! only issues I have with it is that as someone with light sensitivity, the lowest setting is still too bright for me. also when using at the beginning of paperbacks it’s not the best. been using almost nightly and still haven’t had to charge it! love how adjustable it is and easy to understand.

    This light is perfect for reading in bed and not disturbing my husband. I’ve also used it as a flashlight a couple of times during storms when the power went out. Have had it for a couple of months now and I have only had to charge it once. Highly recommend!

    Haven’t been able to use the light yet. But I’m looking forward to that.It will let me see so much better since I’m vision impaired.

    Perfect reading light!!

    If you’re a late night reader with a partner that goes to bed early this is the product for you! I absolutely love this reading light! I bought it a little over 3 weeks ago and use it 2/3 hours every night and have only had to charge it once! I love that it has various lighting to choose from as well as brightness. It also stays in the book extremely well without it weighing down the book. I also like that you can tilt the head off the light up, down, and to the side to accommodate your needs! My husband also loves it because I can dim it low enough when he is falling asleep that it doesn’t bother him.

    Just what I was looking for. It is lightweight, adjustable and easy to charge. Great little light!

    It works pretty well!

    I’ve never used a reading light like this before, but I wanted something small and easy for when I travel on planes. It works decently well. I will say I’m not used to using reading lights, but it does add a little weight to your book which can be awkward. It’s not bad, just takes some work for me to get used to.My only real issue with it, is that when I throw it in my backpack while traveling, it gets bumped and the light ends up coming on while it’s inside my bag. It’s not a big deal since I usually notice it and turn it off, but making the “on” button a little smaller would help the issue I think.I do really love the light options!!! Three different types of light at five different intensity settings and you can really angle the light where you want it. I do like using it on the plane since I feel like I can keep the light bright enough to read but low enough that it doesn’t bother any other passengers. Overall, I’m happy with the light.

    BUY IT!

    This is like a Swiss Army knife in a light. Three different color choices. Brightness adjusts. All with just a click of a button. The light rotates to make sure the entire page is lit up. Battery lasts VERY long! Compact and excellent for night readers. 10/10

    Easy to use. Works great and has a good hold on the pages. It’s not flimsy, which is nice because you don’t have to constantly adjust it. The brightness settings are also perfect for readers who like to read while the person next to you sleeps! 😉

    A cute and helpful product!

    I use this light as a backup to another one I have in case I forget to change my main light. I also use this light when I travel since it’s compact and doesn’t require an extra cord to charge. This light works better than I expected. I love how powerful it is although the lowest 2 settings are the only ones I tend to use. It has a long battery life and is very convenient.

    I absolutely love it

    I love this book light. The rechargeable feature is great. I travel with it everywhere and the battery life is long. I want to make recommendation to the company. Sometimes my book light will get turned on in the shuffle of my bag, or the cat will lay on it. It needs some sort of locking mechanism to keep it from turning on.

    This is the best book lamp I have ever used, and I have tried a LOT of book lamps

    I have tried many $10-20 book lamps over the last couple years, and this one is by far the best I have ever used. Here’s what I love about it:1) BATTERY INDICATION: It *tells* you when its battery is dying. (I hate not knowing with other lamps, because then you have to charge them preemptively all the time so it doesn’t run out in the middle of reading). The little dots are not perfectly representative of, like, a percentage battery. It’s more of a countdown. When I see that there are 3 out of 4 dots left, I know I can spend a few more hours reading without any issues, but that I’ll need to charge it the next morning. 2 dots is a little dicier.2) BATTERY LIFE: So far so good (I’ve been using it for about 2 months). It lasts for 10 days of reading every evening for 1 to 4 hours. So I’d guess like 20 hours or so of life? I mostly use it on the dimmest setting, so probably less time if you use the brighter one. That’s just an estimation though.3) IT ACTUALLY GETS DIM!: Most book lamps are way too bright and wake up my partner when I stay up late reading. He’s a super sensitive sleeper, but this one’s actually okay! It has 5 dimness settings, and the dimmest is actually very dim. The brightest is pretty bright too! It’s a perfect range.4) YOU CAN TURN IT OFF WITHOUT CYCLING THROUGH ALL THE SETTINGS: This will only make sense to you if you’ve bought a crappy book lamp in the past. But most other lamps make you cycle through different brightness settings to turn it off, usually *ending* with the *brightest* before shutting off. But this one just as a simple on/off switch in addition to the two settings buttons, so you can just turn it off without having to change the brightness or anything. So you won’t blind yourself right before going to sleep, won’t wake up your partner, and it’ll save your setting for the next time you turn it on!5) CLICKING NOISE ISN’T HORRIBLE: The clicking isn’t totally silent, but it’s not as loud as others I have tried.6) CLIPS ONTO MY TABLET CASE: The clip is flat, so it slides onto my tablet case easily. I read on an e-ink tablet, so I need something that can easily slide onto the case. This one does, at least on mine. Some other book lamps have clunky clips and stuff, but this one has more of a slide-on thing, sort of like a big paper clip. It gives you more options for attaching to different readers and books.7) YELLOW SETTING IS LIKE A CANDLE: The quality of the orange/yellow light is *so* lovely and literally looks like candle light. It’s so calming and great for if you’re avoiding blue light before bed.8) ETC: Above is why it’s better than other lamps. But it also has great features you’ll find in most lamps out there. Like I love that it plugs directly into a USB port. And it’s lightweight. And you know, all that usual stuff. It’s great!I know it’s probably a little deranged to get so excited about a stupid little book lamp, but I’m just obsessed with this one. If you are too, I hope you feel seen by this review lol. And if you are not yet in love with it, I hope you love it as much as I do after buying it. Happy reading!

    Best invention ever!

    I’ve been driving my husband nights with my late night reading in bed and this light is a game changer. I went on amazon to search for the traditional reading lights that clip onto the headboard and didnt realize how dated those were. This little clip is so light, easy to use, travels well and lasts forever when charged! I love the different settings and how the light changes angles. We used it recently around the bonfire when reading triva cards, just clipped the light right on the box. The only thing I’m upset about is that I didn’t come up with it myself.

    So glad I purchased this.

    You neeeeed this light. I’m absolutely obsessed with this little light. I’m able to read in bed at night without light disturbing my bf’s sleep. The lowest setting is perfect for nighttime. It’s so sturdy I never find myself having to adjust it once I get reading. The battery life is insane. I’ve read at least 6 books with this light and it appears to still be close to a full battery! I only charged it for maybe an hour when it came in so I am very very impressed.

    Put it on the bottom of your book! EDITED*

    I love this little and powerful light. The color is gorgeous. The only issue I was having was that when I placed it on top of my book I was getting the light in my eyes so I had to bend it at an angle where it was super close to the book. Now I just put it on the bottom of my book and the light doesn’t shine in my eyes at all! It’s very lightweight. Some reviewers said that it is top heavy and topples over but that is not the case for me. It’s lightweight and can stand on its own. No need for rubber bands. Battery seems to last a long time. Also don’t forget before first use you have to fully charge it.EDIT: so I’ve been using this light for a while now and I realized by chance that the light head actually bends down at an angle!! So I don’t have to put it on the bottom of my book anymore! I love this little lamp a lot more now. It doesn’t shine in my eyes anymore if I bend it at the full angle and then turn the head a little towards the right. One of the best purchases I’ve ever bought on Amazon tbh! And the battery seems to last FOREVER. Don’t hesitate buying. It’s the best book light out there!

    Eternal battery

    I bought this thing in January, use it several times a week, and just had to plug it in to charge for the first time. It’s AUGUST. This little book light rules. I keep thinking it’s impossible that I’ve never had to charge it before, but even if perhaps I charged it once and forgot, two charges in seven months is pretty incredible, no?

    My Favorite Reading Light

    I’ve had many reading lights. This one is by far my most favorite reading light that I have ever owned. It feels great, has lots of customizability as far as the tone of light you want and how bright, and I love the battery indicator lights and how simple it is to charge. I also like how lightweight it is and how it sits inside of the book because it doesn’t damage any pages or the cover and that’s very important to me.

    Good Lighting

    It is just the right amount of lighting for me to use on our vacation and not wake my husband up. It is bright and easy to use and doesn’t weight down your book as you are using it. Very pleased with this purchase! I was even told the shipping was going to be delayed and it was but just by a few days. Good product, good service.

    I’m so happy

    This was just what I needed, I’ve had a difficult time getting back into reading physical books since I love reading late in the day/night. However, since purchasing this I’ve been able to enjoy reading physical books again and I love it. It does what I need, I can read quite a bit before I need to recharge the light but I don’t mind. Overall, super happy with the product!

    We realized that the cruise ship we would be travelling in had very limited number of electric outlets. Our daughter told us to check out a USB powered light. We also bought a small USB hub, plugged the light into it and used it for a nightlight. Perfect!

    Compact and Practical

    I’ve used, and disliked a lot of book lights. I love the amber setting, which is easier on my eyes and doesn’t disturb my fiancé when he’s going to bed but I want to finish my book.

    Graduation gift

    I bought these for graduation gifts. All of grads just loved them! The best is that they are rechargeable with the hidden USB. All the recipients are going to be living in the dorm and this will be perfect when they want to study but their roommate wants to sleep. This is a must for future grads!!

    It’s good

    Pros:- Easy to attach to books; haven’t tried to attach to hardcover but I’m sure it works the same.- The light has different levels of brightness as well as different color tones- The buttons are easy to press- The light portion can be rotatedCons:- I’ve encountered the need for the light portion to turn up or down as well as rotate in a circle.- Even the lowest brightness setting is bright and my husband has said it disturbs him when I read in bed next to him.Overall, I am pleased with this purchase and it has made late night reading easier.

    Best thing I could’ve brought as a book lover

    I came across this product on prime day and may i just say it is so perfect. Sometimes if I lay on one side i’m blocking my light from the opposite side causing a dark shadow on the pages; this product completely solves that problem. i love the different color and brightness settings. if you’re on booktok and an avid reader i highly recommend getting this so you can read any time of day, in any comfortable position you like.

    Simply. Perfect.

    I can’t brag enough about this light. It stays where you put it (unlike the bendy ones), the color/brightness options actually let you fall asleep quickly after reading (ya know, when you’re using a light to read) and the battery is still full 2 weeks after getting it with daily use. Five stars isn’t enough.

    What a great book light for reading!

    I have tried so many different book lights that end up being too bulky, too dim, too hard to use. This book light is lightweight and easy to use. The winning feature is the ability to change the light to 3 different settings, plus the ability to tilt the top of the light to an angle that works for you. This was a great purchase and I plan to get another one for traveling!

    durable and great battery life

    There are so many of these book reading lights to choose from, and I admit that the flashy video helped sell this. It was all worth it. I’ve had it for about 3-4 weeks and use it several nights a week. The battery level indicators have not decreased a bit since I opened the package! No complaints.

    Perfect book light

    Actually gets dim enough that I can read but still not disturb my husband and baby!!!Only thing that would make it better is on more hinge to be able to angle it down further.

    JUST GET THIS ONE!! This book light is so great! It has 3 color modes, one is yellow so the blue light doesn’t keep you awake and you can still get tired. It also has different levels of brightness depending on what you prefer. I highly recommend this!!

    It’s okay

    This product works perfectly as a light and I love the multiple brightness and color settings as well as the swivel light. However, it is not possible to use as a bookmark as closing a large, hard cover book on it while it’s attached to the front or back covers would snap the light in half. To work around this, I simply remove it from the book and use a regular book mark. Just wish they could include a bookmark that worked on this so it is truly an all in one device as advertised.

    Love how compact this book light is! It is not awkward like a traditional book light and stays nicely on the book! I also enjoy how easy it is to charge.

    Edit: the seller sent me a new one that works perfectly! I am absolutely in love with this and so happy to have it back.I loved this! Loved it. But I went to use it one day and it completely stopped working. I tried recharging it, even though the battery indicator showed full, pressing and holding buttons, etc but nothing. I’m so sad about it.
