      Light where you want it

      I read 'most everywhere I go, but sometimes the light isn't so good. Tablets and many e-readers provide their own light ("front light"), but books and some e-readers don't. A book light is an inexpensive solution. This one has a clip to attach to a book or e-reader. The flexible neck allows you to position the light however you want it. It runs on a single AAA battery and has two levels of light. I haven't had it long enough to say how long the battery will last, but AAAs are cheap. It does what I want a reading light to do, so five stars.

      This book light has a lot of things going for it. It's bright, has two different brightness settings depending on your preference, and uses AAA batteries which are much cheaper to replace than those that use smaller batteries like you see in watches. My only complaint is that the battery pack faces the wrong way. In my opinion, it should clip to the outside of the book so it is easier to manage. If I try to clip it on that way now, the flexible neck has to be twisted around in order to angle the light properly so it illuminates the page.

      I got this light so I could read books at night. It works perfectly! It has two light settings; I haven't even bothered with the dimmer setting. The battery needed to be changed after I read one book, but I was happy with the length of time the battery lasted. The packaging suggests clipping the light to the book but I just clip it to the shirt I'm wearing. I definitely would recommend this light to anybody.

      Cheap solution that works well

      As with a lot of Insignia products, this reading lamp is cheap and straightforward, which is exactly what makes it a good buy. I needed a basic reading light, and this has worked well for me so far. My only criticism is that the battery included with it wore out pretty quickly, so just make sure you have at least one extra AAA and you should be good. I've only used it on books, so I can't really speak to how it would work on other products

      Does the Job Well

      You've got to get the clip positioned with the right amount of paper otherwise it will slide right off. Once you have the clip fastened with the right amount of paper, it does a wonderful job! Love the price for it too. The battery that comes with it has a very short life, but other than that, it is a really good buy for the money.

      Powerful little light

      I would give it 5 stars for just the fact that it works with a normal battery, an AAA. For reading in the middle of the night the light is too strong and blue. I guess that's typical for these tiny reading lamps. I ended up wrapping a yellow plastic around the light in order to dim it (and filter out the blue).

      Hard to clip on laptop or anything else

      Light from device is fine for a little light. Problem is I can't clip it to anything without it just sliding/popping off. Tried the screen, base, power cord. The shape makes it impossible to sit next to keyboard unclipped for a light so sort of useless for my needs. I have to try to lean it against something and keep very still. I did return the 1st one as it fell apart placing the battery in but customer service let me exchange no problem.

      Great, compact and portable! Use it to see my reading material while working out on cardio machines at the gym. Placement of the machines has made lighting inadequate and this little light has made a world of difference! Nice and bright so I can see perfectly while working out. May consider buying a second one for the home.
