good idea, but with flaws – Double-Head Flexible Neck Reading Lamp Light with Clip (3*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
the idea is great. you can use it as reading light (two light sources for better illumination(no shadows), you can clip it on the book, it can stand by itself on a desk, you can clip it somewhere else..very flexible , can be bent for easier transportation.
connector is good for my old nokia power adapter(great!!)
Cons:
inner workings are terrible, no pcbs (except for the led itself) , just bunch of tiny tiny wires floating in the air. seems fragile. switch buttons on the back of each light are useless (bad contact),all in all very cheaply built.
why aaa's, there was plenty of room for something else (aa or even lithium)
it's quite expensive for what you actually get
Other:
would like to see something like this but properly built
Bottomline:
great idea, but bad realization, I had to spent my time on some work to make it better (I removed bad switches and soldered new ones)
I would not recommend it.
