V28086 - Set of 2 Clip-On LED Booklights w/Magnifying Lens
Worth the wait for this item
Love this light. Is just what I wanted. Missed it the first time around and was on Waitlist and then didn't come back in. Was not happy when I got the letter telling me. Just noticed it was in, so ordered and the lights came today. I am a happy camper. Love to read in bed and in the bubble bath with Candle Impression candles so need the extra light to read. Will fit in a suitcase right on my paperbacks to take on trips. Would recommend to anyone who likes to read. Fits on paperbacks great. But will fit on hard backs too.
Because of this nifty little light, I just now starting reading in bed again or I can do my journaling without disturbing my husband. I will buy more of these for gifts and several more for me and my family.
Finally received it after being on the waitlist for a long time.
One works great the other one already needs new batteries, light very dim.
I'll keep it, but would not give them as gifts.
These are lightweight, and the light is very bright and I love the flexibility!
You could go blind with this
I looked forward to getting this but was very disappointed. Not only does the light constantly dim and then glow brighter, but it doesn't stay in place. I constantly had to readjust the placement of the light in order to read. It is a good idea gone very bad. They go back tomorrow.
Not Worth It
When I receive my package one was missing and the other did not work. It seemed to be very poorly made. Was so excited to receive this but it was such a disappointment
Should have listened to other reviews...
I was so excited when these came today. My 9 year old loves to read in bed and I bought these for him for Christmas. However, only one worked out of the package, and my hubby and I thought it was an awful expensive price to pay for only one working light. I refuse to pay for a new battery on a brand new item.
These will be mailed back to QVC tomorrow.
One didn't work-- turned out it had a dead battery
After reading shortiepie's review, I made sure to test both of the lights once I received them. I was delighted when the silver light worked beyond my expectations, but so disappointed to find, similar to SP's experience with the silver lights, that the blue light was barely turning on and would flicker and sometime not turn on at all. My husband got out his voltage tester and we took out the batteries in each-- the results were that one of the batteries was "dead" in the blue light. I am not sure if the battery was defective from the start or if this is a sign of some sort of mechanical defect, as the batteries should "wear" down evenly, but since the lights are on waitlist now, I decided to buy a new set of batteries to see what would happen. To my satisfaction, that appears to have done the trick; The light is working beautifully. I do wish something like this could've been caught in QC somewhere,- either at QVC or at the manufacturer, as it was discovered by simply turing the light on. It's very discouraging to receive products that don't work. But if you are having similar experiences with your booklights, you may want to consider buying the $5 set of two Duracell batteries. I think they are still worth the extra expense.
Best Book Light Ever
I only read paperback books and I have bought numerous book lights, but this one is the best ever. The light is very bright and lights up both pages with more than sufficient lighting. I attach it to the back cover, it doesn't flop around like others I have purchased. The flexible neck on the light allows you to move the light around exactly as you need for your comfort. I LOVE this book light and would recommend it to everyone who reads paperback books. I even use it as an added light feature when reading in the living room with other lights on, it never hurts to have extra light to save the only pair of eyes God gave us.
A very bright idea!
I was delighted to find these stocking stuffer gifts. My best friend said a few weeks ago that she'd given up reading in bed because it disturbed her husband. I'm looking forward to giving her these for the holidays so she can keep up with her voracious reading habit, even after her husband's gone to sleep.
Silver ones duds
I ordered 2 sets of these - 1 of each color choice. Cute idea, like the size. The black and the blue ones both work - bright light. BUT... neither of the silver ones work. I tried removing and replacing the batteries. They both come on but are not bright at all. I don't want to put brand new batteries in to make them work. If I could keep the 2 colored ones I would...... but will have to send them back.
I bought these, not for a booklight, but for task lighting in my scrapbooking/card making area. I can't believe how bright the light is on these! What a help they're going to be! I love the size, plus how easily you can direct the light. Super!
