I’m so excited to be taking part in the Beam n Read Annual Pre-Holiday Gift Giveaway this year! I absolutely love my Beam n Read light! Here is some info from their website….
The Beam N Read Hands Free Light from ASF Lightware Solutions is a versatile, personal, portable, LED light that is worn around the neck and lights up personal space. Often compared with clip-on “book lights”, a Beam N Read Hands Free Light delivers much more flexibility than a book light. It delivers a wider light than clip lights, easily works with newspapers as well as books, and provides anywhere, anytime lighting for tasks like knitting or writing without disturbing others. Battery life is a lot longer so the ongoing cost to use one is less. Standard alkaline batteries last for 120 hours in the Beam N Read LED 3 Hands Free Light with 3 bright LEDs. This compares to book lights with similar light that advertise battery life of 20 to 40 hours. Batteries in the Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light with 6 bright LEDs last for 50 hours compared to 20 to 30 hours advertised for clip lights with similar light. The utility of a Beam N Read light is further enhanced with its support for clip-on color filters, large clip-on hands free magnifiers, and AC and vehicle DC power adapters. Included accessories vary by model. You would have to buy several other lights to get the same functionality as just one Beam N Read. When you want an energy efficient, hands free LED flashlight with long battery life, a Beam N Read is the answer.
You may remember my post about it back in January. In that post, I wrote about how I loved to use my hands free light to knit or crochet while watching television with the lights off. I still think that is a fantastic use for the Beam n Read Light & do it often.
This past summer, though, I discovered another very useful way to utilize my Beam n Read LED Light. Our power was out for over a week because of a really terrible storm that swept through our town. It was miserable, especially since the temperatures were near 90 degrees every day.
As you can imagine, the house would get very dark at night. I was blessed to have received a couple Beam n Read Hands Free Lights in January. My entire family was thankful that we had them. We were able to slip them around our neck and complete simple tasks such as going to the bathroom, fixing a sandwich, or going up the stairs. These lights truly were a helping hand!
Be sure to check out Beam n Read’s website for lots more information about these fantastic lights! They really do make a great gift. Visit them on Facebook and Twitter too. Have fun entering our awesome giveaway for a chance to win your own Beam n Read Hands Free Light.
