Flexible lighting right up to the last page: The VARTA LED Book Light gets into every nook and cranny of the latest crime novel

Say goodbye to the annoyance of dim lighting in trains and airplanes. In January 2013, VARTA Consumer will launch a clip-on light for books and eReaders that every bookworm will love.

Adaptable and bright

The book light has a 15cm flexible swan neck that can be twisted in every direction to find the perfect position for illumination, putting an end to squinting at words in dimly lit surroundings. The new light cuts an impressive figure thanks to its strong 5 mm cool white LED, a reliable, long-lasting source of lighting that couples brightness with low energy consumption. The appliance’s even distribution of illumination and wide scattering angle makes sure that readers will be able to spot every last clue in their latest crime novel.

Easy to use, fastens to everything

The VARTA LED Book Light has an integrated clip that can be used to attach the appliance quickly and facile to every kind of book and eReader, but it can also be used on other items such as clipboards. The user friendly on/off switch makes it easy to use the light even in dark surroundings. The lamp’s ideal combination of materials means it only weighs 36g including batteries, making it a real “light” weight!

Elegant and long-lasting

The book light comes with VARTA CR2032 button batteries which can power the light for up to 26 hours. The color combination of silver and black give the reading accessory a look of classic elegance that is guaranteed to appeal.
