Beam n Read Lights - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


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.
Win It!

One person will win a Beam n Read LED 6 Hands-Free Task Light.

It will help me see better when doing hand sewing, cross stitch and needlepoint, but especially reading when I don't wan the overhead light on.

I think this would definitely be good for power outages, or just when it starts to get dark in my home at night.

This would be great to have for reading in bed :)

Our power goes out more often than seems normal, so we try to be prepared. This light would make the time pass, though, because I could comfortably read a book without having to precariously balance a flashlight or get eyestrain from candlelight. Nice.

Crafty Zoo said...

This would be fabulous for doing cross stitching!

Sue Hull said...

I think this would be useful in many situations. I like to embroider but could use more light on my project, I would like to be ale to sit back and relax and not have to hold my embroidery under the lamp to see it.

Kelly Tupick said...

I think this will be useful for my father's ATV. He is the captain of the fire dept and uses his ATV for fire and rescue. He has one very similar in front of his handle bars but lost the red piece that goes to it. I would love to get him something like this so that he can replace his.

I think this light would come in handy with crafts and for my son in law who fixes cars and needs his hands.

MELINA said...

I know my husband can use this for working on the car in the evening.

Barb said...

Wow I like this item. I'm legally blind so I could use this for going up and down the stairs here everyday. I never have enough light doing that. Could also be used while I am on the computer. I have everything set tools wise & magnifier wise but I am always looking for more light.

SnowflakeDay (Audra) said...

We have a dark closet with paper archives for work. This would come in handy while going through file folders. Much easier than trying to hold a flashlight and flip through papers at the same time.

I would use it for reading in bed. The lamp is always annoying for my husband.

krystyl olson said...

my hubby and I work oppsite shifts, so when I go to bed (I like to read in bed) he's been asleep for a while... so while I am settling into bed, he's being disturbed ....even more so when I turn on my lamp to read for a while... I also like the last pictre you added - of the lady using it and knitting... I knit too, so it struck a chord with me :)

Angela Saver said...
