1 x Cleaning Cloth
1 x User Guide
Input DC 5v 1Amp
Light Angle 360 Degree Uniform
This is a quality light that is so useful being totally wire free, but still capable of giving out a good light when needed.
Its use is can not be understated whether as a inspection light that could be used and kept in a car or outdoors when camping or just using it has a child night light on its low brightness setting.
The touch sensitive switch is a boon being large so no fumbling in the dark and using it has a dual purpose dimming control is a good design idea but then so is the complete light.
You can leave the light set at any of its brightness settings and turn the light off and it will remember that setting the next time you use it.
The light gives off a uniform 360 degree light so it can illuminate a bedroom ideal use has a night light lasting for up to 72 hours dependent on brightness level set.
The light is supplied with a charging cable that will fit into any usb charger.
Close by the charging socket is a small indicter light that illuminates when the Lantern needs recharging.
The bottom of the light is a surface protect pad that gives good stability to the light.
The overall look of the Lantern is brilliant, the wood effect top and base look real and the minimalistic design including its operating switch looks great.

Great for Parents! Easy to Use and Lasting Charge
Me: A new parent, on the hunt for a nightlight that was useful, simple, and not made with ugly "kid" prints. This lamp does it all and then some.
Pros: Touch to turn on, off, and brighten or dim. I don't need to use my brain at all during 4am feedings to know how to get this thing to work. I can touch it with my toe, and bam! I can reach my hand over the side of my bed without using my eyes, and bam! The color temperature of the light is also not harsh; I prefer the warm tone for the kiddo rather than a brighter, blue LED. Our night time routine is turn all the lights off, turn on the sound machine, and turn on this lamp to its dimmest setting. The battery seems to last for hours on end. There are nights I forget to turn it off, or it's on the entire time because of fussy babies and exhaustion, and it's still going strong in the morning and for several evenings after that. The handle is cute and handy, but you could grab this lamp by its sides if you want - it doesn't get hot at all.
Cons: The charge port is a micro usb on the bottom, and it requires some accuracy to plug in a charge cable (which we just use any of the micro usb ones we have lying around for our phones). Definitely not easy in the dark. The lamp is also lightweight, which lends itself to tipping over pretty easily. But, it's been a pro too because we sometimes just lay it on its side at our baby's butt when we have diaper duty at night.
I'm exciting to use it for other jobs - perhaps camping, outdoor movie night, whatever. Until then, it's been great for our parenting needs.

A wonderful “everyday” lamp.
I can’t say enough good things about this lamp. The light it produces is in the warm color spectrum. This makes it usable for everyday things. It’s also defused so it won’t blind you even at its highest setting. At 250 lumins, the light seems to radiate into the room very well compared to another lantern I have that outputs 300 lumins. It’s lower setting(s) make for excellent mode lighting. I like to use mine as a replacement for a candle for night time dinners on the patio.
The fit/finish of the lamp is top notch. The wood looks like acacia (orangey color). The lense feels solid. And the touch controller is excellent. Although I did discover it doesn’t like to work if your hands are really dry.
One possible con may be, the light includes a micro USB charging cable, but no AC adapter. For most of us, that’s not too big an issue as long as you own a cell phone or have a computer. And AC adapters and cables are readily avalible.
I can’t comment on the battery, other than I wish it was replaceable. I haven’t had it long enough nor have I tested how long it will last. Currently, I use it while keeping it plugged in to a 5v USB charger. I do predict that this light will long outlive it’s battery.
Here are my thoughts on this lamp as “emergency lighting”. I would not buy this lamp for that sole purpose. You’re better off with something with removable batteries. Li-ion batteries don’t get better with age. In fact, they lose about 20% of their capacity every year. Anyone who owns a laptop or phone will know this. And that might leave you in a bind a few years down the road.
One last tip: don’t run the battery flat if you can help it. Doing so will greatly reduce its life. For best results, do as I do... keep it on the charger 24/7 (or as often as you can)

Beautiful and Functional
I have lived in some cold/bad weather areas and am concerned about the power going out. These little beauties look great, are lightweight, portable, and last for hours. I have a rechargeable battery and it doesn't take much to charge them. At least I know in bad weather I will still be able to see and get around the house. I have had them for almost a year and use them to light my home to save money on electricity bill too.

stylish and easy to use
Well made, stylish and easy to use. The portability is a big plus - we bought this for our baby's nursery, and plan on purchasing more to replace our nightstand lamps.
The controls are easy to use and straight forward. The touch disk power switch/brightness control is sleekly designed, with tactile ridges for easy location in a dim room. No knobs, no dials, no obstrusive switches - a perfect marriage of form and function!

One of the best products I've bought here on AlumiGogo.
Very impressed. This is literally my night lamp that sits right beside my bed. I originally bought it just in case in lost of power. But the way this product looks is very stylish. I am in totally love with it. It's just a tap away from using the light. It gets bright and get's dim just the way you want it. Very easy to use. I will totally recommend this to anyone. Matter of fact this makes one of a kind Christmas present.

A dim light
This is a great back up light if the power goes it but it gives such a dim light I wouldn’t use as a primary lighting source. It’s cute and my power does go out a few times each winter so it’s worth keeping.

I like the first one I got so much I got another and yet another for a birthday gift for my brother. It's such a warm light with such a nice form. I just hope the things go down to 16 bucks again. I'll buy more!

Its actually pretty bright but the light is much whiter than the picture - more of a cool white than a warm white. Controls are responsive and its extremely light and easy to move.
