Better than it looks – Double-Head Flexible Neck Reading Lamp Light with Clip (3*AAA) Reviews

I underestimated this product when looking at the images from the site. It is of better quality than i expected. LED's are pretty bright (which can sometimes be a con :D), but the good thing here are two lights. You can always use just one. The "neck" thingy flexes really nice and smooth, it is made of numerous little joints, like a spine.
The clip is not very strong, and the lamp isn't balanced right. The upper part (where the LED's and neck are) is much heavier than the bottom, and you can expect it falling from your book/whatever else you clipped it on. Also, 3 batteries are a bit too much to power only 2 LED's. Although they are bright, i expect them to burn out fairly quickly, because i don't believe they put any resistors in there.
I think it is a bit overpriced.
I have doubts on how it long it will remain functional, but while it's working it can come in handy in numerous occasions - reading at night in a crowded room, a bus or a car. You can also use it as an emergency flashlight.
