Beam N Read Review and Giveaway

July 2nd, 2014 kimbacaffeinate Giveaway, Review 26 Comments

2nd Jul

The makers of the Beam N Read LED3  hands free light asked me if I would like to test their product and share it with my readers. I love to read into the wee hours, as I am firm beliver in the “just one more chapter” mantra. I usually read at night with my Nook HD, but there have been many nights I am reading a physical book and I am often annoyed they don’t come with a nightlight. Not wanting to disturb my husband I am often forced to leave the comfort of my warm, soft bed to finish those chapters. Have you ever sat on the floor in the bathroom to finish those last chapters? I have! I spent the last thirty days testing the Beam N Read both for my comfort and those of the man snoring rather loudly beside me…..

 

Beam N Read

 

The Beam N Read is a hands Free LED3 light that allows you to adjust the length for reading whether you are sitting or lying down in bed. It is battery operated offering 120 hours of hand free reading. Unlike some reading lights such as clip ons, and those annoying head gear lights, it has a wide light that illuminates the entire book from hardcover to paperback. It will even work for the older eReaders. The kit contains a clip on red filter allowing you to soften the light.

I loved the adjustable strap, and how well constructed the unit is. It is easily switched on and off by flipping the light into position. The light can be flipped into a few positions directing the light both up and down. The unit is lightweight and sat comfortably on my chest. It requires 4 AA batteries and with daily use I have yet to change them.  My son pointed out it would also be useful when working on small projects and I used it when trying to remove a tiny splinter from my finger. I am also delighted to report that my hubby was able to continue his work sawing down forests.

The makers of Beam N Read also offer a larger Beam N Read LED6 Deluxe Light. It has an extra wide light with night vision filter and a Fresnel Magnifier that is perfect for crafts. My mother enjoys needlepoint, quilting and puzzles. As a diabetic her eyesight isn’t what is once was and she struggles in any kind of low light. The larger Beam N Read allows her to work hands free and is less stressful on her eyes when using the magnifier. The magnifier clips directly to the Beam N Read and is extra large allowing her a greater work area.

    Just One More Chapter is the best, but also the worst because le lack of sleep. I haven’t felt the need of one since my kindle paperwhite is perfect for night-time reading and I live in my own room so don’t bother anyone with physical novels during night-time, but if I ever needed one, this seems very good! Yay for not messing with your husband’s sleep 😀 I like that it’s not a clip-on or isn’t one you have to put on your head. Looks pretty darn neat 🙂 Thanks for introducing this to us, Kim!

    My daughter loves her headlamp (bought for camping but used also for reading at night), but I think this would be better for me, for both reading and knitting in low light. Thanks for reviewing, and for the giveaway!

    The hiding in the bathroom comment made me laugh. I’ve done that so many times! Glad I’m not the only one. I first thought that I would need this because I’ve got my Kindle Paperwhite but there are a number of times I’ve been really involved in a physical book but felt guilty about turning the light on. Also we’ve lost power a few times for days and having a back up light to read at night sounds really nice. Great review of the product! You made some great points.

    This sounds so amazing. I have a Kindle but one without background light so I have to keep light on till wee hours and then I usually hate that I have to get up and turn it off. So this seems amazing! Great post, Kim 🙂

    I’ve been through so many book lights. I lose a lot of them because yes, I am a one more chapter kind of reader! 🙂 This one sounds super good though. I may need to get me one.
