I have used numerous reading lights and have not found one that would satisfy all my needs.
I have used the light with an elastic band that goes around your head. The elastic wears out and the beam can be very distracting to someone else. It does have its uses, but I was looking for something better.
The clip on light, I would end up holding in my hand and moving along with my reading because the beam was so narrow and it got in the way of turning pages. It was better than nothing, but I wanted more.
I was given the opportunity to review the Beam n Read Personal Hands Free Reading Light and immediately noticed that it was something different and wondered why it took so long for someone to come up with it. I LOVE it. The reading light is simple and easy to use.
The Beam n Read Reading Light hangs around your neck with an adjustable strap.
Filters are included with the reading light, so you can adjust the brightness to your own comfort level. I found I would use a different filter for certain lighting conditions, so the red or orange options are a plus. A fantastic idea we have been missing.
The Beam n Read Reading Light also has an adapter, so you can save your AA batteries for when you really need them, another fantastic idea. It is sold separately, but I believe it is something you will want to have.
I am a photographer, so a source of light that I can have close at hand without using my hands is more than a convenience for me.
The light can be used for most anything you can imagine. I sure could have used it when I was blowing insulation in my attic.
Just let your imagination run wild and think about all the uses you can come up with for the Beam n Read Light!
5 Stars – Would Buy It For Others (lol)
Beam N Read Hands Free Travel and Reading Light
New edition Beam n Read Hands-Free Light delivers a wide & bright light that lights up 2 book pages and doesn’t disturb others. It’s a true reading light that works with all printed books, Kindles and other eReaders (whether naked, skinned, or covered), PLUS newspapers, magazines, newsletters, loose documents, and other items that can’t support a clip-on light. Worn around the neck, there’s no need to shift it when reading paperbacks.
Included are two 2 special Relaxation Filters: BNR Orange for a softer, warmer light that blocks energizing blue light (especially useful when reading to relax in bed); BNR Red to block blue light and reduce ambient light for sensitive bed partners.
Standard alkaline AA batteries (not included) last an extra long 100 hours, far longer than flashlights and clip-on lights resulting in a lower cost to use (and fewer batteries in the trash). This light is still bright when others have gone dim. Save batteries for when you’re on the go with the optional USB/AC Power Kit with 12 ft of cable that lets you plug into the included USB/AC adapter. Or plug into a USB car adapter/charger, or a computer USB port, or a USB adapter/charger for cell phones, etc.
In addition to reading, this 3 LED hands-free light is great for crafts, travel, and walking in dim or dark places such as an attic, basement, or around the house during a power outage. Use it for writing journals, working, camping, changing diapers at night, and a lot more.
