I have been looking for a desk/task light, but couldn’t find one that wouldn’t get in my way. I impulsively picked up this lamp at an office supply store and really liked that it was compact when folded, and that it turns on when opened. Then my husband pointed out that it was cordless. Sold.
Since then, I have fallen in love with this thing. It’s great for throwing a lot of light onto small creative projects. The LEDs are nice and bright (and don’t get hot), and I can position the light exactly where I want it. Once I’m done, I snap it shut and stow it out of the way.
The task lamp takes three AAA batteries, but can also be used with an AC adapter (not included).
