Top 5 Book Lights


Welcome to GetMojo, where we do the research, so you don’t have to! In this video we’re offering our picks for the 5 best book lights on the market.

If you’re an avid bookworm, having a dependable book light handy is a must. They’re ideal for use in poor lighting situations when reading at home and on the go. But if you’ve ever looked into buying one, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a staggering amount of different products available. So, which one should you buy? Well, to help you decide, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.

The Front Runner

PERFECTDAY 12 LED USB Rechargeable Reading Light


Featuring 3 levels of brightness, in 3 different color temperatures, this compact book light emits enough light to illuminate 2 full sized pages of whatever you’re reading. We love that the directional LEDs only light up what’s in front, so you never have to worry about bothering anyone else while doing some nighttime reading. This pick might be simple, but it’s a stellar book light that also happens to be cheaper than almost all of its competitors.

The Comparable

TOPELEK Rechargeable Book Light


This entry from TOPELEK is functionally very similar to the PERFECTDAY model. It too has 3 different brightness and color settings, and an adjustable gooseneck for lighting at any angle. Like the PERFECTDAY light, it's rechargeable via USB and lasts up to 60 hours on a full charge. One unique feature we like however is that it’s available in both black and white, making it easier to match with your decor, or other tech gadgets like tablets and cell phones.

The Bedtime Pick

Hooga Amber Clip-On Reading Light


Reading before bed is a common pastime. But the blue light-emitting fluorescent and LED lights we surround ourselves with while doing so can be harmful to our eyes, and night’s sleep. Blue light can cause eye strain and prevent the brain from creating melatonin, the hormone associated with sleep. So if you typically struggle sleeping, a blue light-blocking amber-colored book light like this one, might be your best bet. As well as offering an amber hue, this pick also has 3 levels of brightness, a flexible gooseneck, and comes with a charging cable.

The Neck Light

Glocusent LED Neck Reading Light


Our next entry is a great alternative to the traditional clamp-on style of book light. Instead of attaching to the book you’re reading, it sits comfortably around your neck. The ends of this necklace-style light shine narrow beams towards what you’re looking at, which is great for reading and, well, anything else that requires both hands and added visibility. It also comes with different brightness and color temperature settings, and the battery can last for up to 80 hours.

Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great book lights to consider.

Vekkia Book Light Set


Vont LED Clip On Reading Light


Vekkia Rechargeable 4 LED Neck Reading Light


The Ring Light

iVict Clip on Reading Light


Our final pick is similar to a traditional clamp-on model, but with a ring of LEDs that emits a soft, round light. This makes it great to use as both a book and webcam light, especially since it’s USB-powered. It even offers 3 color modes, and 10 different brightness settings, so you can finesse the perfect lighting set-up for your needs. This light remembers your previous settings too, eliminating the need to tweak it every time you use it.

So which book light should you buy? Well, if you’re looking for a standard clip-on reading light, most of the entries on this list should do the trick, as they all offer great light coverage and an array of brightness and color settings. If you’re looking for something more versatile though, we recommend the neck and ring lights.
