Product Description

When you need personal light, this hands free light delivers features and practical usefulness unmatched by other portable lights: wide & bright light from 3 LEDs that lights up 2 book pages, a clip-on Red Relaxation Filter, extra long battery life, and optional AC & DC power adapters. Read Everything: It's a true reading light that works with all Kindles and other eReaders (whether naked, skinned, or covered), printed books, PLUS newspapers, loose documents, maps and other items that can't support a clip-on light. Called the "best Amazon Kindle reading light" and the "best personal reading light we have come across," by a major travel blog. A unique feature is the clip-on Red Relaxation Filter that blocks blue light (especially useful when reading in bed), reduces ambient light for extra-sensitive bed partners, and helps maintain night vision when switching between lighted and dark conditions. Standard alkaline AA batteries (a set is included) last an extra long 100 hours, far longer than flashlights and clip-on lights resulting in a lower cost to use (and fewer batteries in the trash). 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. Worn around the neck, there's no need to shift it when reading paperbacks. It's great for reading, crafts, travel, and walking in dim or dark places such as an attic, basement, or around the house during a power outage. Use it for writing journals, working, camping, and changing diapers at night. A product review sums it up saying, "An item you weren't sure you needed quickly becomes indispensible". Optional accessories include AC and DC power adapters and a magnifier kit with 3 clip-on magnifiers. The Beam N Read family includes the BNR LED 6-3 with 6 LEDs for an extra wide and bright light, 2 Relaxation filters; BNR LED 103m with 3 LEDs and 3 clip-on Magnifiers; and the LED P with 6 red LEDs.

Beam N Read is a perfect solution for this.
LaRougerie
It is broad enough to cover both pages of a book, so no need to adjust.

When I travel, either on a train or a plane, i find there is limited amount of light to read a book. No matter how or where you sit in your seat, there is no light available or limited amounts. I bought this devise to get more light on a recent train trip. well IT worked better than i thought.

After adjusting the light around my neck (which in my opinion is the largest setback to this being a 5 star product), there was enough light for me to read the novel on a train trip.

For those of you who want a light when you travel, i say get this and enjoy your trip

Love it - really great for power outages. Much more practical than a head lamp or a clip on book lamp. I also bought one for the husband even though he insisted he didn't need one. He now uses it almost nightly for reading in bed. Haven't used it yet for crochet, but plan to. I think it would be great for that as well.

11/26/2010 update: We just came off a three day power outage from a series of large snow storms. Our Beam N Reads were amazing - put it around your neck and go on your way in the dark hands free. With good batteries (not the ones they come with) they last forever. We didn't have to worry about changing batteries even though we had plenty on hand. We don't know what we would do without them. A wonderful, practical gift - better than a lot of usless junk out there! And it works so well for crafts even when you have power - especially if working with dark colored textiles.

May 2012 Update: Well, went to turn it on the other night and it just went "POP!" and no longer works. There is rattling now. One we bought not even a year ago for a friend just did the same thing to him a couple of weeks ago. Trying to debate on buying another - it is so indispensable, but I don't want to buy them every two years.

September 2013: I tried other neck lamps and none can hold a candle (koff koff) to the Beam N Read. I bought the six bulb one just a few months ago. So far so good. Even if it goes out I will have to get another - they are that good.

This light is nice and bright. Once you get the neckband adjusted to your liking, then it's great...but don't move or you may have to readjust! (See PS below) It's a good light-is much brighter than most lights but the neckband is annoying. Perhaps making a 'padding-type- thingy' to go around where it hits your neck will help -it would. I bought this not for reading but for crafts for working with small objects (but mine has 3 strenghths of magnification that can be attached). I give it 3 stars for great light but annoying neckstrap. (PS: I shorten my strap so it lies much better against my upper chest which aids the light in shining more towards my lap where my book is. This also helps with the readjustment issue I first mentioned-When it's shorter, there is less length to get 'unadjusted'= so you just slide it back to your chest). The only other con is it is rather large=doesn't fit into pockets made for eReaders. I use one of the tiny/miniature backpacks which gives me lots of room to carry my reader, this light, the magnifiers, PLUS my 'other' light, and my charger, etc and more. Works well. You'll love this light if that above doesn't bother you.

I mainly read at night, yet my wife is very sensitive to external light. In June I received a Nook as a gift from my darlin' and so I promptly bought the nook's dedicated reading light. Like every other reading light I've ever bought it was unsatisfactory with insufficient illumination power (with the sole exceptions over the years being the original itty bitty book light, which bulb's are over priced and burn out over quickly, and the light wedge, which was disastrously inconvenient with an e-book reader) and/or power source requirements.

This Beam N Read works every bit as well as advertised - and even into the unexpected range. The silly little red filter really does drastically reduce the ambient light in the room (which is great for my wife) and yet gives a pleasing and sufficient amount of light and contrast on a white sheet of paper (or an e-book page). The little gizmo also has the advantage (thanks to its LED display) of having WAY less heat output that the original itty bitty book light and I don't have to worry about light bulb burn-out. By-the-way, also as the ads indicate, this thing is great for small-time hand work, be it model-making or needle-work. Finally the power requirement is also as advertised. Combining this product with rechargeable batteries and a fast recharger has given me an "endless" supply of pleasant long-night reading experiences with no worries about excessive power consumption/costs nor over-heated sheets.

It really works just as well as advertised. Wouldn't it be wonderful if every product did that? I have several friends who received a Kindle for Christmas and several family members who do detailed handwork - I've recommended this product to each of them.

Worn around the neck, this has a light, adjustable strap. The reading light is said to last about 120 hours, and I've been using it for weeks and it's still going.

It came with 4 standard alkaline AA batteries and a clip-on red filter to minimize night blindness, their literature says, and to soften the light if needed. Really lightweight and flexible with a flip-up design, it's turned On by merely flipping the reflector/hood up.

I now usually have it on when I'm home. Going downstairs at night or to a darkened room, or when I just can't see something well enough, I can even save on lights by just turning this on for awhile.

For reading a book or an e-book reader, you can also reverse it if you prefer (as I do) to hold the book or e-reader higher than on your lap, and then flip the reflector/hood down instead, so that the light angles up. But if someone is sitting across from you, this may not be very comfortable for that person, as the Led lamps would be directed at their eyes too.
I've also used it, in reversed position, for piano music.

Essentially, I love that it's always available when I need extra light, and for the Kindle, at night, it provides a very even light, especially when reading in bed or in an airplane. The light, while more than adequate, is not overpowering and is less likely to bother someone else nearby who might be needing some sleep.
