I have several flashlights throughout the house and they work just fine. But sometimes it's hard to finagle some things while my hands are full carrying a flashlight. Beam n Read Lights give me the opportunity to shine a light on things, and do it hands-free.
Beam n Read personal hands-free lights let user’s see better in situations where extra lighting is helpful. Those times may include reading or needlework, walking in dim or dark places, when traveling, during power outages, and more.
My husband is an auto mechanic and has actually been using the Beam n Read LED 6 Hands-Free Task Light while working on cars. Rather than have to hold a light with one hand and a tool with the other, Jason puts the Beam n Read light around his neck and turns it on. This particular personal light model has a button that lets you determine if you want three or all six lights on.
The Beam n Read ® LED 3 Hands-Free Travel & Reading Light is the same as the one with six LED lights, with the exception that it has three fewer bulbs. I've been using it at night when I go outside to take the dog out, and I will definitely be using it during our next power outage.
Beam n Read Lights include an elastic neck strap. The LED lights are bright and span a lot of area. There are red and orange plastic filters included that can be snapped on to soften and warm the light, and to help avoid night blindness. The filters are somewhat hard to snap in place but work well when they finally snap on.
Beam n Read Lights require 4 AA batteries for each unit, and they are not included. There is no on/off switch. Rather, the lights automatically turn on when the reflector hood is lifted. When it's turned back down and flush with the base, the lights turn off.
An additional piece that can be purchased separately is the Beam n Read USB/AC Power Kit. It allows you to save batteries by plugging your Beam n Read LED Light into external power sources. The kit includes an USB/AC power adapter, a 6 foot BnR-to-USB cable plus a 6 ft USB extension cable for total 12 feet.
One person will win a Beam n Read LED 6 Hands-Free Task Light.
