John Lewis Lewis Leo LED Clip Light, Black
Light emitted is yellow not white
This clip light comes with 15 LEDs NOT 18. The black colour is good, the lamp looks nice, the grip of the clamp is good, and the neck is flexible. But the light emitted Is yellow, and not the bright white light I expected from LEDs. It more or less does the job of providing light on the book I hold when using my exercise bike, but I am rather disappointed with it.

Nicely engineered but light level disappointing
I agree with several other reviewers inasmuch as this product is well designed and perhaps more sturdy than the photos can show. The clip is very firm and has protective pads.
However, the cables aren't as long as one reviewer suggested and the level of light (as actually indicated on the box!) is barely ambient and doesn't help as much as I would have liked for working at the computer keyboard or piano.
The light is also spread rather than focussed.
If you need something for detailed work I would suggest looking for something brighter. I can get by having bought two, but will look for something brighter in due course.

fabulous for kids beds
Both my young boys, aged 5 and 7 have these on their beds. They are brilliant, they do not get hot, right level of light source, and they can switch them on or off easily. Well made. Can say nothing negative.

Simple but elegant and effective
Very pleased with the quality and effectiveness of this light. 1. It looks good 2. the power of the light is excellent 3. it can be turned and twisted to fit almost any desired angle 4. the clip is very strong. I can't imagine the light can ever fall off what it is attached to. 5. Good length of lead to reach your intended mains socket. 6. Although the 'bulbs' (LED's) cannot be replaced, LED's have many 1,000's of hours life at virtually no energy cost. There are 18 of them. Hopefully if one should eventually fail, the other 17 can continue, and so on! One purchasing consideration should be, what do you want to clip the light onto and will the powerful crocodile clip open wide enough to fasten. A versatile light.

Smart, bright and cool to touch - ideal for kids
We wanted a bedside reading lamp for a 5 year old, and this is ideal. It clips nicely onto her bedside shelf and gives a bright light whilst being cool to the touch. Looks great in black, and we are all very pleased with it.

Nice sturdy but elegant design. The flexible neck is super-flexible and strong enough to remain in any preferred position. It clips well to the bedstead and is bright enough to read by without disturbing my wife.

Wish I had bought one before
Bought this for a bed where there is not room available for a bedside table. It clips firmly to the wrought iron end of the bed and blends in. I hope that it last a long time as the bulb cannot be changed. There is an on/off switch on the cord. I have been asked to get one for a friend as she likes it so much.
