Then, within a week (I use mine for about 2 hours every night) the bulb starts turning darker and darker and the effective light is dimmer and dimmer until I have to replace the bulb before it even burns out!!!! That ticks me off. I have tried every single book light on the market that I could find - none of them compare to this one. It really irritates me to have to buy 6 pkgs of these at a time because they can't be found locally and they dim so fast.
I've written to Zelco and begged them to address the issue - har har, good luck with that! I'm just glad that I can at least buy the replacement bulbs on amazon.
Oh, I also tried some of the other suggestions in the reviews ie, buying from Radio Shack (different wattage, voltage, etc.) but it doesn't help me because those always seem really dim right away...so, today I am buying more bulbs! What a sucker, huh?
As you can imagine, I've been through a LOT of replacement bulbs over the years, too. The bulbs work fine. As other reviewers have said, as the bulb is used, the light does become dimmer and more yellow. I haven't found this to be too much of a problem. When they get too dim, I just replace them.
So why only three stars? Because Amazon's product page is confusing. These light bulbs come in a blister pack of two bulbs. (With me so far?) The "title" of the page is "Zelco Itty Bitty Book Light Replacement Bulbs, Set of 2," which implies that you're buying 2 light bulbs for $14.99. But, wait!! Just below that is the unit price of "($7.50/package)", which indicates that you would get 2 packages, for a total of 4 bulbs.
I have been round and round with Amazon Customer Service about this with my last two orders. $14.99 for two bulbs is absolutely overpriced. They can be ordered from several other online sources for even less than $7.50/pkg. Amazon has changed the Product Description to indicate that what they are selling is two bulbs in one package. When they get their act together and change the pricing at the top of the page, I'll come back and edit the review and give this product the 5 stars I think it deserves.
The heat generated causes the glass to start darkening from the first use. In a matter of weeks you'll notice that you can't see the type very well anymore. This is because the bulb glass turns dark grey, so very little light can pass through it.

The first bulb has already burned out. I am disappointed that it lasted such a short time. I only keep my book light burning for about 15--20 minutes a night, and for the bulb to... Read morePublished 9 months ago by K. Knox
