This is an excellent portable lamp for close, detailed work or for fine-print reading "at table", especially when colour accuracy is important. It has a small footprint (but a very stable base, even so) and an elegant appearance. The battery life is decent, even when used at full brightness, and recharge time is good (although most convenient if left to recharge overnight). A big plus for me is that it's cord-free – no snaking cables to get in the way and I can place it literally anywhere. At the same time, there is the handy option of using it while connected to the charging source, for example, at a desk with a computer with a free USB-C port. One thing to note: it adjusts only in the vertical plane – you can't twist it – so it's best for scenarios where you're working/reading at a relatively flat angle.
