Honestly - I actually really like this reading light - it's perfect for my needs. I really wanted to give it 4 stars - and I still highly recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative to the clip-style reading light. It wraps around your neck & each side is independent of the other with 4 settings - low, medium, high white light & 1 with a red light (which i assume would be for jogging or something). It also has an auto-shutoff feature where it automatically turns off after a certain amount of time (something like 30 min I think). I'm able to read with just one side turned on low or medium (depending on how long a day it's been).
The reason I had to give it 3 instead of 4 stars is this:
> Quality - the batter case to be specific. I immediately did not like the battery cover. It has a little foam pad that they've put on it (since it rests on the back of your neck) - on mine it's skewed & off centered. I could live with that...but within a week it has completely broken & will no longer stay on. I picked it up last night & took a few steps - wasn't even touching this part of it - the cover just popped off & as it hit the ground the little nub that latches it into place broke off...so now it won't clip on. Thankfully we have an abundant supply of that self-adhering athletic wrap & that worked perfectly to hold it on there since otherwise the batteries would be directly against the back of my neck (& I imagine pretty uncomfortable).
>Low Light Output on the Highest Setting when compared to High setting on clip-on reading light. First - let me reiterate - this does provide me with more than enough light to read. I can read using just 1 side on the low or medium setting (in a room that has no lights & blackout curtains). But - when I got this I also bought one of the clip-style ones. When both sides of this are on the highest setting the light output doesn't hold a candle to the high setting of the clip style one (which cost less than this). So if you're looking for significant light - this may not be for you. Honestly - for me - this is actually a good thing - I don't want or need a ton of light when using this in bed since I share my bed with my toddler son & his father - the second I get into bed my son rolls over & is pressed up next to me, anything too bright will disturb him. But since this has so many settings I still think the light output should be comparable to similar products when on the highest setting, and I can't say that it is.
Like I said - I would still recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to the clip style - so long as you don't need a super bright light. The clip-on I have will seriously light up a room - so if you're looking for that kind of light this won't work for you. Otherwise this is a great option for anyone who tends to read paperback books (since clip-ons are such a pain with those!).
