Daiso Japan – Spot and Book Light

Daiso Japan – Spot and Book Light

This small mini Spot and Book Light from Daiso is a miniature desk lamp that runs on 3x LR41 batteries (batteries included).
The lamp has a weight down base so it won’t topple off your desk, and the small light switch on the back switches on the small yellow LED light.
If the base is detached, the mini lamp turns into a clip-on book light.

The batteries included are for test use only.

How to replace batteries

1. Remove the lamp head by turning the lamp head counter clockwise.
2. Remove the battery compartment.
3. Remove the batteries by using a toothpick to push the battery out from the back of the compartment
4. Insert new batteries.

– The button batteries can be extremely dangerous if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children.
– If battery is swallowed, immediately notify your doctor.
– Insert batteries properly, with the plus (+) and minus (–) terminals aligned correctly.
– Do not short circuit, recharge, disassemble the battery and do not heat battery or place the battery in a fire.
– Do not mix old and new batteries, or mix different types of brands of batteries.
– Remove batteries if the Spot and Book Light is not being used for an extended period of time.

Derek’s review

I broke the mini lamp on the first day!!!
I really like this small lamp. Firstly, I like the very cute design, it looks great on my desk, and secondly, because I was surprised how well it works, it’s just bright enough for small spaces. The elbow joint bends all the way up and back, and the base is just heavy enough to support the bending.
The white lamp looks very much like the Pixar desk lamp.
I like the lamp very much… however, I broke it!!!
I tried to remove the base, as described on the packaging, to test the clip on a book. And guess what, the base was held on very tight to the base joint part, and when I tried to remove it, the small attachment on the base joint broke…

I ended up gluing the base back. Yes, I know it was just 100 yen, but I wasn’t expecting it to break when I tried to ease off the base. Anyway, I intend to buy another one, the white (mini Pixar desk lamp) one to add to my collection.
