LED Panel Book Reading Light

Rating 3/5 ★★★☆☆ 

A very wise cousin sent one of these, and it is a relationship-saver.

You can use this to read in bed without disturbing the person right next to you who is trying to sleep. The light is gentle, evenly spread across the page, instead of having hot spots and shadows.


  • Can save your marriage if one of you likes to read right before going to sleep and the other doesn’t.
  • Much easier on the eyes than any other book light I’ve ever had.
  • Runs on batteries so you can take it anywhere.
  • Inexpensive.


  • The acrylic can crack if mistreated.
  • Changing the batteries can be a little finicky.
  • It is supplied without batteries, so you’ll need to get some AAAs.

As one user says:

[….] in use it is very good. It is big enough to cover a large size paperback book and lies across the page. The LEDs are spread along the length of it and illuminate the page evenly so that reading is easy in a dark room. The on-off is via a rotating knob on the side which allows you to adjust the brightness to suit.

I had to downgrade the rating because batteries really ought to be easier to change, and I wish this gadget was a little more sturdy. Personally I can’t complain much about something this nice to use that has held up to more than four years of nightly use, but some people might want higher-end device. See the Philips book light if this one isn’t good enough for you, but be prepared to pay a lot more.
