Wow! That's all I can say is wow! This lamp is the coolest thing ever: from its compact size, sleak modern look, sturdy base, and energy efficient design. The lamp itself is 11x2, with 3 different "colors" and 6 levels of brightness, per color. That's 18 different settings!!! The "buttons" are touch activated, and charges from USB port. The 360°angle adjustment enables it to fold about in half...making it portable enough to be carried with you. One charge lasts many hours. This is definately an all purpose lamp, whether it be reading or sewing, writing, computer work, or even night light.
