I got two of these lights a couple of christmas's ago. I love the idea of rechargable book lights and the fact its small, but this one constantly flickers each time I move. I also wish the charger was smaller. I could do without the base and just allow me to attach the adapter to the light itself. Of the two lights I have only one of really lights up brightly, but then the flickering starts...once it starts flickering it doesn't really go back to that initial intensity of light. The light doesn't remain standing when I read...keeps falling and hitting my kindle screen. I thought maybe it was just my bad luck and I had recieved two defective light, but found it wasn't true after looking at the reviews on Amazon I low ratings and similiar reviews to this. In general, i would not recommend this light.
