Top customer reviews
My goal was a portable lamp I could use at an outdoor table during summer dining. The smaller the better, but it had to illuminate a page of text. I bought three for comparison:
1) Rite Lite LPL900 8 LED Portable Desk Task Light
2) SE Flashlight (20 LED Silver Lamp Light)
3) GE 17202 LED Book Light
The bottom line is I liked all three, but they are all different as follows.
1) My favorite was the Rite Lite. Its "antenna" side arms extend so you can get some height. The light bar is rotatable. It folds to a rectangle that is surprisingly light, but will occupy some space, both in storage and on your table (perhaps 11"x6"?). It fits in a large purse but not close to fitting in a pocket. I keep it in the car. It emits the best even light of the three, and quite enough to read/write comfortably across a whole sheet or more. If you have a laptop handy it can be powered off the USB, though I use battery power. (It takes 3 AA batteries, and can take 3 more if you want to change them less frequently.) On the downside, this is the most likely to break of the three. As long as you are patient and gentle when extending its "antenna" side-arms you will be okay. (Another possible concern is that its diffuse light, while an advantage to reading, will "leak" and be visible / distracting to other people. Not sure about that yet.)
2) The SE Flashlight (20 LED Silver Lamp Light) was the heaviest and bulkiest. Its spotlight is harsh, but within that spotlight it is the brightest of the three. I can't think of any reason to recommend it over the other two, except that it is sturdiest, and perhaps a spotlight is what you want.
3) The GE 17202 is very small and portable, *easily* fitting into a pocket. Or half a pocket. It unfolds into a surprisingly tall tower. However it has the weakest light. It is barely adequate, not strong enough for my needs. I'd recommend it only if very compact size is your main concern.
See the Images for shots of all three lamps.
What impresses me most about it is that there are three different ways you can power this light. One, is with an optional AC Adapter, another is by batteries, and the third is by USB. It's this third option that appealed to me the most. On the downside, the included USB cord is much to short and thus when plugged into a PC on a desk one's ability to move it to the desired location is severely restricted. However, that problem is easily solved by plugging it into a USB Hub.
It puts out a really strong light and you can flex the direction of it in countless ways. It's super light. It is a "little" flimsy but for the cost this is a slam dunk.
It's small so if you you're using it on a desk, as I am you will need to move it to use over whatever it is your viewing but that's easily done and the light bar has eight lights that when powered by USB are amazingly bright. I am very impressed. I also bought the PowerLine Universal AC Adapter with USB Power Port Power Line 0900-77A 1300-mA AC Adapter with USB Charging Port. It does NOT work with this light.
I've only owned this product for a day but my first impression is that it's a great value. If I run into problems with it as time passes, I'll update my review to reflect the new information.
2. Adjustable light output, and VERY bright at max setting
3. Adjustable height, angle
4. Battery (3-AA min, 6-AA max), USB, or AC-powered (though no AC adapter is included with the LPL900)
None, considering the price
1. Since light output from an LED tends to be very focused, and due to the strip-style layout of the LEDs on this lamp, overall light distribution can be somewhat uneven if the lamp is not properly positioned/adjusted (i.e., very bright directly under source which fades noticeably away from source). From my experience though, you should always be able to get the exact amount/type of light you need by fiddling with the lamp's intensity, height, and angle options. You can also tape a strip of paper, foil, etc to the lamp to act as a shade which allows even greater directional control of the light output (i.e., angling the LEDs towards you too much can otherwise be distracting/blinding)
2. Cheap, plastic construction might be a turn-off for some. Regarding the telescoping arms, think old school tv/radio antennas, because that's exactly what they are
3. USB cord to power the lamp is extremely short (about 2ft), and the end that plugs into the lamp is a DC barrel connector (i.e., USB and AC will use the same jack on the lamp)
4. The blue LED on the on/off switch is EXTREMELY bright. It can literally act as a night-light, as it literally lights up the ceiling of my bedroom quite nicely
