Verilux Presents The Ultimate Book Light

Just about everyone has experienced the headache you get from trying to read with little to no light. Not only is squinting to read annoying, it can also damage your eyes. And to make matters worse, most book lights provide barely enough light to illuminate the page, and those that do provide enough light usually run out of juice pretty quick. Luckily, Verilux The Healthy Lighting Company has introduced a booklight that is both energy efficient and effective.

Verilux VB01JJ4 1 Light Natural Spectrum Book & Travel Light Silver The Verilux VB01JJ4 1 Light Natural Spectrum Book & Travel Light is a lightweight travel companion that slips easily into any purse, pocket, or briefcase, and offers glare-free indoor-quality daylight at any time or place. Like most all book lights, this light will clip onto your book or laptop for hands-free operation, but unlike many others, this light includes a built-in charger. Hook the light up to your computer to charge it with an additional 4-6 hours of run time. As if that wasn't enough, a high/low switch allows you to adjust light intensity to suit your immediate needs. For those of you who like to read in bed, but don't want to disturb your partner by turning on a bedside table lamp, this truly is the ultimate book light.
