Enlight me

When you read a book, the light is important so I decided to bench 3 portable lights that you might like.

1. The supposed to be handy 2-LEDs bookmark by Moleskine, the Luna by GoalZero and the WakaWaka light.Photo 7-04-13 8 34 56 PM (HDR)
The 2-LEDs Bookmark is easy to charge through an incorporate USB
It’s also a bookmark which is a great idea.
But, and designed to be used as a bookmark too, it sounded like a great idea.
Testing it was not so fun, not a great beam, only lightning one page at a time.

 ChaseIt because
. It’s a one in two tool: a bookmark and a reading light

BChased because
. It only lights up one page at a time, can’t flip the page
. It’s not really handy, doesn’t hold straight
. The light is more blinding you than it lights up the page you read
. It’s too expensive (20euros)

2. The Luna by GoalZero, is a 10-led light powered by a computer, an handy Switch 8 or a usb plug.
The beam is way larger and it’s easy to direct the light thanks to its flexible and bendable cord to wrap it around object to secure it.
ChaseIt because it’s handy and useful and it’s a great value 9,90$

3. The WakaWaka Solar Lamp, a 2 leds-light powered by the sun.
Basically it has been designed to replace the oil lamp the people use when they don’t have electricity at home (it prevents fire, and burn injuries).
One full solar charge will give you
. 8 hours of bright ambient light
. 16 hours of bright reading light
. 80 hours of soft night safety light
It can only be charged by the sun, no sun no light. I use it home a night light.

      I guess the Luna and the wakawaka are the best. I have them all and don’t know where is the led bookmark by Moleskine …

    I love to read and I dont care for ebooks actually – but this gadget is way cool.
    I have seen “something like this” a few years ago BUT it was NOT as good as this to have me considering looking into buying one.
