It works OK enough. I probably would not have purchased had I known I could get a flashy Ott Light at Costco for under $30
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I wish the base had a little more weight. Otherwise, I am very happy with it and gave a few as gifts.
This lamp is everything a portable rechargeable lamp should be. Lightweight, rechargeable, not bulky and the switch is covered when the light it closed so no accidental turn on to drain your battery. The light is perfect for doing applique at night and can be dimmed to suit your needs. It does not come with a wall plug, just a usb cable so you need an adapter if you want to plug it in to a wall socket. I have tried a host of portable lights and this one is the closest to perfect yet!
I am very happy with the lamp!
