Here in Alaska, we are in our short days cycle with the sun rising after most people have arrived at work and setting before they leave. In just a few weeks, we’ll have daylight from around 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Those short days mean a much greater reliance upon lights, even during the day as our house does not get any direct sun for several months each year.
While I don’t mind flipping on a switch for an overhead light, there are times when it just doesn’t work for a task at hand. Or, there is someone else in the room not wanting that much light (e.g. when watching the TV) with me wanting a bit more.
Enter the Beam N Read ® LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light.
Now I can direct the light to what I want to see and not cause anyone else discomfort. My hands remain free as the light is worn on a cord around your neck. I can see that being handy during a power outage when I might need to hold my preschool son’s hand to lead him somewhere or carry items from one room to another.
This unit packs a powerful punch for light, offers 2 different colored plastic clip-on filters, and even came with a 4×5 clip-on acrylic Fresnel magnifier to help you see detail a little easier.
That magnifier has me considering a return to cross stitching as I might actually have an easier time seeing what I am doing without putting the piece just inches from my face. Even though I am not to the point of needing bifocals, I can admit that small stiches have my eyes feeling exhausted after a short while of concentration.
I have to say that I am really impressed with this product from Beam N Read. They offer other configurations, too. What a neat gift for the crafter in your life (or even for someone who wants a hands free light for reading or emergencies.) The company even provides a nice list of uses and solutions for the Beam N Read on their website.
You can purchase the Beam N Read from Amazon for $29.99 right now. Or, check out the Beam N Read News and Events page to stay up to date on what they are offering. The company is also on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
