It’s the perfect nighttime reading compa

It’s hard to believe, but I’ve gone through a number of booklights and this one is my favorite.

I've had 2 of these and on each one the battery has only lasted about 4-6 hours of use which is really pitiful. I'm not sure if a different brand of battery will last longer but I don't particularly want to pay for a new battery every 4-6 hours.

I only used this for a couple hours before the battery died. It was great up until that point, but now I have to spend what I did on the light just to replace it's batteries.

extremely short battery

      Comments about Microbeam Booklight:

      I read in bed for a few minutes every night before sleep but sometimes longer, up to an hour. I only used this for less than a month before the battery died. Very disappointed that I will need to buy a new one every month. Maybe invest in the rechargeable battery light instead. Its more money up front but over the long haul you'll save.

          We use the little clip lights in bed while our spouse is asleep, on trips or any other place we don't want to disturb others. They are easy to carry where ever we go, even to clip on the car sunvisor.

              I hope the batteries were just old. I will purchase four more batteries and see if that will get the lights to operate for more than a week.
              If not, they are both going back.

              The Compact Microbeam Booklight is compact, lightweight and does clip easily to books and magazines. Actually, it worked very nicely the first week. But then the battery started to die and I am sure it was stated that the battery would last up to 100,000 hours of use. But it was more like 100,000 seconds of use. So I was a bit disappointed.

                We've tried several booklights over the years and they were either too heavy, clunky, not bright enough or didn't shine the light where we wanted. This product solves all those problems.
