Order arrived early and was overly packaged. Very big box for little item! This little item is a very cool idea. It charged up in about 40 minutes and was ready to go. I have had several models before this one and they all disappointed. They ate batteries faster than I could replace them, the lighting was harsh and not very nice on the eyes in the middle of the night. When I saw that this one was recharable (USB) I thought I would give it a try The lighting on this is very soft and is easy on the eyes when you don't want the brightness of the overhead lights. You walk in and there is this nice glow coming from the bowl. I definetly reccommend this model over the others I have tried.
