Product Description

[Newer model available: Go to BNR LED 6-3F, ASIN: B00UE22N7M] When you need personal light, this hands free light delivers features and practical usefulness unmatched by other portable lights: extra wide and extra bright light from 6 LEDs, 2 clip-on Relaxation Filters, longer battery life, and an optional external Power Kit. Read Everything: It is a true reading light that works with all Kindles and other eReaders, printed books, PLUS newspapers, loose documents, maps and other items that cannot support a clip-on light. Worn around the neck, it shines a cool and steady light for reading, quilting, knitting, all needlework and crafts, and searching a dark basement. Use it for writing journals, working, camping, and changing diapers at night. The extra bright light is helpful for those with aging eyes. Included are two 2 special Relaxation Filters that snap-on the light: BNR Orange for a softer, warmer light and to block blue light; BNR Red to block blue light, reduce ambient light for sensitive bed partners, or to help maintain night vision. A switch lets you light all 6 LEDS or just 3 LEDs. 4 alkaline AA batteries (not included) will run for 50 hours shining all 6 LEDs or 100 hours when using 3 LEDs. The longer battery runtime than other lights is especially valuable during a power outage and when traveling. This light is still bright when others have gone dim. No wonder reviewers called it the "most useful, versatile tool I've found in a while". Other critics rave as well. Also included is 1 large 4x5 inch lightweight acrylic clip-on Fresnel magnifier. The magnifier is a useful accessory for short periods of detail work for those with normal vision. Beam n Read Hands-Free Lights include: BNR LED 3F with 3 LEDs and the BNR Orange and Red Relaxation Filters; BNR LED 103m with 3 LEDs and 3 clip-on Magnifiers; BNR LED 6-3m with 6 LEDs and 3 clip-on Magnifiers; BNR LED P with 6 red LEDs; and the BNR USB/AC Power Kit.

This light came highly recommended in the crafts world, so I chose it for use in our small camper; I could knit without disturbing my husband's sleep. At first, it worked very well. The light is bright enough and the strap adjusted nicely. However, after about four weeks of use, the strap's connections started to become undone. At first, we put the strap back together, but eventually, it came apart permanently in three places. We ended up safety pinning it together. Now that we are back home, we will try to glue the connections back together. I can still use it, but it is no longer adjustable. I am puzzled that the manufacturers made a great product, but paired it with a flimsy, unworkable strap.

update: After I submitted this review, the company contacted me and offered to replace my light. I took advantage of their offer, and today, I received a completely new light. It's great doing business with a company that stands behind its product and makes service so easy.

I bought this product mainly for the hands-free magnifier so I could start cross-stitching again. The neck strap was too short, I could not keep it positioned where I wanted it on my chest, so the light shone more into my chest than down onto my stitching, and the magnifier actually made it harder for me to see my work.

I was contacted by email by the VP of the company, who asked me to edit my original review (which I have done in the paragraph above) because he thought it was unfair and suggested that I have vision problems. For the record, I have NORMAL VISION. In fact, maybe my vision is too good for this product. After years of being 20/15 or better, my vision is now a "mere" 20/20. Perhaps I require less magnification than this product offers.

I will not dispute that for many, this is a great product, but for me, it was not. Is this not the whole reason that amazon allows us to review products?? How else will other 5'10" women with good vision know that this may not work for them?

I am able to make significant progress on a needlepoint picture because this light is as good as daylight in working on my project. Before I purchased this light, I had to lay my picture aside when the sun went down.

I love this booklight! Whenever my husband and I drive someplace, I bring my book along and he always complains about the light. But this booklight shines directly on the pages. It hangs around your neck so you don't have to keep adjusting it like you do with a clipon. It's also great if you like to read in bed.

I purchased the Beam N Read for an elderly friend that will be 90 in October! I was at her house one day and she was talking to someone else about getting batteries for her flashlight in case the power should go out. She now walks with a walker and I thought how akward for her to balance a flashlight and her walker in the dark. So I found this little guy and sent it to her. She just loves it! It fits right into the pouch of her walker and all she has to do when she needs more light is to put it around her neck and it will "light her way!" Her hands are free to navigate the walker which makes her treks around the house safer.

This is the best little gadget you can get. It's hands free. You can take it anywhere. I started with the $9.95 model that someone gave me as a gift in 1992. I had that one until about 5 years ago, and I just wore the thing out. I used it to work on the car. I used it to haul wood. I used it when the power went out. I used it to walk outside at night time. Oh, yah! I also used it to read with. So, I am really excited about this new one I just bought! I'm going to get one for my girlfriend for Christmas because she sells china on eBay and needs to read the tiny markings on the bottom of the dishes. I think every household should have one of these. And, no! I don't work for the company or know anyone who works there. It is just a great little product.

I'm using this with NiMH batteries to read in bed. The light hangs on your neck and sits on your chest and overall it works well.

My criticisms are 1: it's a bit on the heavy side--with today's LEDs it should work with AAA batteries. 2: I wish the light could pivot upward more. 3: It comes with a yellow filter meant to soften the bluish LED light and I wish the filter would be a little whiter to allow more light to pass through.

If you are a knitter, embroiderer, hand quilter, etc. then this light will really work for you. I love it for when I am working in an area that is not well lighted, or especially as a passenger in the car. I get a lot of knitting done in the car, and I couldn't do it without this light. I used to use the previous model with the old type light bulbs. This version is so much better, much brighter, wider lit up area, bulbs last indefinitely. It's comfortable to wear and the light is directed just where you need it. I can't do without it.
Nov. 16, 2012: I want to add that during the recent hurricane Sandy in NYC I used the Beam N Read constantly during the blackout. It was much better than a flashlight. My hands were free while I walked around the apartment and it lighted my way, as well as lit whatever I was looking at or doing. I was even able to knit, which kept me calm. It certainly kept me from tripping over anything while walking around in the dark, beautifully lighting the floor ahead of me. I wore it all the time during the hurricane blackout.
If you are knitting with a dark color yarn it really helps your work to have a bright light, too.
