Unfortunately it did not turn out to be so. My wife actually gave me the vol.1 light first, as a gift. The first few hours were great: the tool is light, VERY adjustable, and reasonably well put together. However, the bulb burned out approximately 6 hours later. I took me several hours of searching over a couple of months to find a replacement, which burned 2 hours later. I did not have the time to buy a relacement bulb again for a while and the book light went back into a drawer.
I later bought the booklight vol.2 (this model), which is also quite a handy and adjustable design. After about 10 hours of use, the connection between the light and the power adapter stopped working. That was it for the second light.
Finally, my wife bought me a second booklight vol.2, which I plugged in immediately. Bulb burned up in 1.5 hours. Only replacement bulb I had burned up in another 2 hours.
So that's it for me: $100 and 3 successful purchases got me about 20 hours of total use - that's $5 an hour! This light adjusts well and looks good but its reliability is so poor that I have to give it a thumbs down - avoid at all costs.
I've used this version (#2) nightly for over a year and only replaced the bulb twice. The construction is better than version #1 -- no more broken solders. The light is brighter than the original, but the light cover is also larger and enables a good (not excellent) containment to keep my sleeping partner, sleeping.
The biggest problem lies in the arm, which droops. However, a quick turn of the screws to tighten the hinge and I'm back in business. The AC adapter has lasted well and I use the battery (4C's) when I go camping -- the battery pack lasts 4-6 looong reading nights and I save $$$'s using rechargeables.
I'd like a longer lasting bulb -- the flourescent looked promising until I realized the batteries are contained in the lamp; I've found, in other lights, that the extra weight can be a real pain when reading paperbacks.
It may not be perfect, but it's a heck of a lot better than the alternatives!
Next step was to try to get a replacement bulb. Seems that the only ones on the face of the earth to sell this bulb is . . . Zelco. Don't bother trying to buy it anywhere else, you won't find it (even stores which specialize in selling light bulbs).
Now you might ask yourself, why did Zelco choose a bulb which they, and only they, sell? Simple: it's a built-in monopoly. They control the price, and the profits. Never mind if that makes it inconvenient and expensive for the consumer. What's more, I doubt that the life of these bulbs is very long at all (maybe 15 hrs.?). Quite a cash cow for Zelco.
I recommend the Phorm Light Voyager Book Light instead. It produces good reading light, and the fluorescent light bulb is rated at 10,000 hours. It also folds up into a nice little 'package', and is even a little cheaper than the Zelco.
