I was thinking of trying these for some time, but was put off by the price. When I saw it, I just loved it - it's just so beautifully-designed that I bought one for myself and one of my colleagues bought one too.
It's slim-line, neat, portable, unobtrusive; it folds up so small, yet on HIGH it is bright enough to light up a room. On LOW it will run for 24 hours continuously.
Everything about it has been well thought-out.
You would think that a light this slim would fall over when it's opened, but it doesn't. You would think that an object this lightweight would move when you pressed the button, but it doesn't, because the button is not mechanical, it's a touch-sensor.
FOR USE AT FAIRS AND MARKETS
For lighting a stall indoors under the fluorescent lights you get in most exhibition halls, it's fairly useless, it really isn't bright enough to make any difference.
For lighting individual jewellery displays. Two lights, one either side of a cabinet, on the brightest setting does make a difference, I would highly recommend this, especially if the overhead lighting in the hall isn't very bright. To light up the entire stall, forget it, these are not powerful enough,
For lighting a stall outdoors in the winter (pre-dawn trade markets) - brilliant! You will need between three or four of these lights, but you will sell more stock once the customers can see what they're buying!
