I have tried plenty of clip-on lights before as I search for the best one to use with when watching the TV at night with my Chromebook on my lap. All the ones I have tried have worked to a greater or lesser extent but none have been without issues and most have packed in after a while.
This new clip light from Azhien is the best yet and ticks nearly all the boxes.
It arrived in a tiny mid-market box containing the lamp itself, a short USB charging cable and a one-page User Guide. Build quality seems genuinely good and better compared to the others I have tried and better by far than I expected for the crazy £5.99 price. this does not seem like a bargain-basement gadget likely to fall apart after a month of use.
The 22cm gooseneck is fully flexible and can almost be tied into a knot. The clamp is large and very firm with a ribbed rubber grip. Once in place, it is pretty firm, although not perfect. There is a single soft touch button on the head of the 7 LED lamp. Short press to scroll through the three modes: warm white at half power, daylight white at half power, daylight white at full power. You should be able to get between five and twelve hours of light depending on the mode selected.
The light can be powered either by USB or from the internal 850ma Lithium Polymer Battery. I was pleased to note that a standard USB to micro-USB cable has been used for charging, so should the cable fail a replacement can be easily found.
This little device has a quality feel to it, works well and is budget-priced. You cannot really go wrong by buying one.
