Initially very pleased with product
on 15 May 2014
I thought this was a good buy and just what I needed having not got a power point by my bed, I could charge it during the day & use it at night. Just right I thought. Great portability & light, but having had it six months, the battery power was not lasting long recently though & the light quickly grew dim. However it was still a good product - until yesterday when I happened to be in the bedroom (very fortunately) and heard a "pop" sound and then an odd smell. I didn't know what it was until I heard the electric socket crackle and quickly reached over to it and cut the power. The lamp will not work now. So although this wasn't an expensive item, it should in my opinion have lasted longer than six months. Now I have the inconvenience of being without a bedside light and will have to look for another one and spend more money! I hope the seller does the decent thing and gives me a refund. Buyer beware.
