All of us at The Point of It All are going bananas over this portable, battery-operated Ott lite! It's so lightweight; it can travel anywhere! Think about setting it up on the fold down tray on an airplane or on the bedside table at a hotel. THIS IS AN AWESOME PRODUCT! If you haven't used an Ott product before, get thee to The Point of It All to check one out. These lights simulate daylight and make an incredible difference when you are stitching. Ott makes a tabletop version and a floor model (both have to be plugged in). We have them all in stock...portable one is $42. Perfect stocking stuffer, too! Happy stitching, Susan
