I couldn't have been more wrong! This little lamp packs a punch! To prove it I put it through some tests. Now mind you, these test were non-scientific and one totally not intentional but the AYL passed with flying colors.
The first test: I unintentionally dropped the AYL lamp on the floor. The top came flying off but guess what, it did not break, nor did the lamp itself. I was horrified that it might not work for the review but it did! The top lamp part is actually made to twist off so the lamp can be used upside down. Hooks on the bottom and the top allow you to position this gem either way.
The next thing I wanted to do is really test the brightness. Sure, it is bright when all the lights are on but I wanted to know if I could really see to do something when all the lights were off. So, I decided to write my whole post for this review, just by the AYL lamp light. Here is proof...
I have had no problem seeing my laptop or what I am writing. The nice thing about this lamp is it does have two bright light sources. All you have to do is push the button in front for what brightness you want. Oh, and if you are in an emergency situation, it has a blinking function too. Win!
Here are some other functions:
- Low-High-Flashing-Off functions
- Runs on 3 D size batteries
- Sturdy rubber and plastic molding for maximum durability
- Removable top for focused lighting
- Low pulse LED indicator light ensures lantern can be located in an emergency
- Built for maximum water resistance
I seriously, cannot say enough about how much I really do like this lamp! However, if I have not convinced you, then purchase one for yourself anyway. You can't go wrong!
