Light Just Where You Need It
Overhead lights illuminate too broad an area, often shedding light on your neighbor and not on your book. But the LightWedge Original Book Light features a tapered, optical-grade acrylic lens that lays flat on the page to direct all of the light where it's needed most. LightWedge uses light pipe technology to illuminate the page you're reading--instead of the book as a whole--maximizing both the LightWedge's effect and your ability to read easily in dark places.

The optional PageRest holds the LightWedge on most hardback and trade paperback books, so you can focus better on the story. Your companion remains undisturbed, and you get a better reading experience.

Easy on the Eyes
Clip-on book lights are sometimes harsh and can tire out the eyes, whereas overhead lights can be too dim and can cause eye strain. The LightWedge Original Book Light uses two cool LEDs housed in the handle to provide steady, even light that doesn't overwhelm. Additionally, the LightWedge allows your eyes to adjust comfortably thanks to two brightness settings for low-light and no-light situations.

Perfect for Travel
The LightWedge Original Book Light is perfectly sized for hardcover books and large paperbacks, and it's easy to slip in your carry-on along with your reading materials. Measuring 6-3/4 by 9-1/4 inches and weighing only 8-1/2 ounces with batteries, the LightWedge won't weigh you down or be too heavy to hold. Just four AAA batteries (not included) will give you up to 40 hours of light, so you can enjoy your stories for many trips to come.

LightWedge Guarantee
LightWedge book lights use white LEDs, which are guaranteed for the life of the product. All other parts are guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase.

I use the LightWedge to read in bed and bought it so the light wouldn't disturb my husband. We both think it works great; however, be mindful of the translucent versus solid colored casing in terms of light escape.

The translucent lets the light escape through its clear casing and scatter throughout the room. So, if disturbing others around you is an issue then buy a solid colored casing.

Overall, the LightWedge is a must buy for anyone who likes to read before going to bed and while traveling. I have 2 more suggestions: 1) buy the case covering to protect it when not in use 2) buy a LightWedge with different light settings, if possible: a high and a low. For example, when I wake in the middle of the night and can't fall asleep, I get out my book to read. The problem is that my current LightWedge has only one light setting. This can be so bright, it almost hurts to read and how I mumble and curse myself for not being a more mindful consumer.

Color Name: Black
THis lightwedge is fantastic. It provides a great source of light that is focused on your book, not on the person next to you. The light comes from the black handle, but because of the "wedge" shape of the glass, it is focused down the glass and onto your book. You can even take that focused beam and use it as an impromtu flashlight.

This thing uses hardly any batteries at all, unlike the other popular reading lights. I very rarely have to change the batteries and I use this all the time, for hours every night! I've even fallen asleep with it on overnight, with no noticable decrease in battery life. Because the battery life is so good, I've even let my son read in bed for awhile and then just set it down and use it as a nightlight for the rest of the night.

It is true that if you're like I am (rough with it) it will get scratches on the lens. Not a big deal though, when it's on the book, you won't notice the scraches. Much like small scratches on eyeglasses.

I like the larger size because you can use that with large books or with paperbacks with equal ease. The paperback one doesn't work as well with the hardcover books, but it's okay.

The lightwedge also doubles as a bookmark when not in use!

You won't be disappointed if you buy this. I wasn't. I'm actually buying two more for friends as Christmas gifts!

Color Name: Black
I read books at night, frequently, so I purchased this product so I wouldn't disturb my wife. This light source is simple in design: tiny LED lamps illuminate a thin piece of plastic (working similar to a fiberoptic lamp Lumisource LS-FO SPRAY Fiber Optic Spray). It is about the dimensions of a full sized book and the black handle which houses the battery/light source is somewhat bulky. A small button toggles the light intensity from low to dim to off.

USE

Place the item on the page that you want to read, push the button to the light intensity that you desire (allow your eyes to adjust to the darkness, which may take a minute or more), and flip the item to the other page to read. As you turn the page, you will need to take the item out, and place it back into the book.

In concept, this product is ideal. You have a light source that is limited to the pages that you are viewing. However, even on the highest intensity (let's call it dim and dimmer), the light is still somewhat low. What can you read with this item? Books that have high contrast paper (glossy pages are most ideal since the reflective proper of the paper allows for better view). Conventional novels are a bit more difficult to read. Magazines are impossible unless you read on your stomach with the magazine placed on the bed. Furthermore, pictures are difficult to see, at best.

DURABILITY

Like any screen on a laptop, I placed a SCREEN PROTECTOR on my lightwedge to prevent scratches. Any scratch with transmit uneven light (more than usual).

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
I bought this light based on all the great reviews. I love reading in bed and my husband can't stand the light on when he is trying to sleep. So, I thought I had found a good option for both of us. I find the design of this light awkward while reading--it's hard to move between pages and the light output is really faint. I am under 40 and have good vision--so think it is the light and not my eyes. I'm still looking for a better solution.

I bought my Light Wedge after seeing it on Oprah's favorite things last year. I was sure that this was the answer to wearing a headlamp during reading and I am definitely one to keep up with the latest tech. After using it for the last eight months a couple of things have irked me to the point where I am officially retiring the product and moving back to more conventional methods.

Problem the first!

This thing scratches beyond easy. I wish I had the foresight to purchase some large screen protectors or something of the sort. I don't mistreat it either, it just acts as my bookmark when I am not using it. In the time I have owned it it has become so bad that it's difficult to read and I have to move it around in order to read a whole page.

Problem the second!

The battery casing is a joke. I don't know what the hell the designers were thinking, but in order to get the batteries into the device you have to seriously wedge (pardon the pun) the suckers in. I use rechargeable batteries and the bottoms are ruined from how hard they have to press against each other inside.

All in all the concept is fantastic. I loved it for the first few months even despite the fact that I couldn't put the batteries in without help. Now that it is nearly unusable I wish that I had spent my $30 on more books instead.

If you are interested in purchasing one I would say wait until the next model comes out, but if you really must have it now make sure you get something to protect the screen on both sides.
