Unboxing the ZBOLE Foldable Book Lamp
The book lamp is packed in a carton box measuring 17.50 x15.00x3.50 cm. As I open the box, I see a maple wooden book, a USB cable, and an English and Chinese user manual. That's it for the packaging.
ZBOLE Foldable Book Lamp first impressions - artistic simplicity
When I take out of the box, it feels like an ordinary notebook with a hard wooden cover. It's smaller than I thought: just 16.80x12.00x3.00 cm.
Now, it's time for the surprises. As I lift the cover of the gadget, it feels just like a real book — but not an ordinary one. The gadget emits soft glowing light — bright enough to accompany your late night reading and subtle enough to be the perfect night light. After playing around with the gadget for a while, I was still unable to find any major flaws. Except, maybe, I wish it was a bit larger.
ZBOLE Foldable Book Lamp design - innovative and compact
Is the light as vulnerable to damage as a paper book? This was the first question on my mind. So, I've decided to put it to the harshest test: I tried tearing the paper of the lamp. But this proved to be quite a formidable task. The lamp is made of Dupont Tyvek high-density and tear-resistant paper.
The next great thing was the light itself: it was soft, unobtrusive and, as the packaging says, safe for the eyes.
As we all know, electronical components can get hot after non-stop use — think light bulbs, smartphones, laptops, etc. To my surprise, however, the lamp stayed absolutely athermic even after two hours of continuous use. So, the light is absolutely safe to touch and is an especially great choice for kids.
In addition, the magnetic wooden cover makes it very easy to open and close. When you open the book, the light is on. Close the book, and the light goes off. Unlike other lights, this book lamp has no buttons, switches or wires. It's simply a small notebook weighing just 0.3kg, very portable and compact. You can take it anywhere anytime.
All that beautiful light comes from the 1700mAh built-in lithium-ion battery concealed in the spine of the book. Thanks to the low power consumption, you can use it for up to 8 hours. The book lamp's battery is conveniently rechargeable and can be easily powered by a power bank, computer, phone, etc. via a USB cable.
ZBOLE Foldable Book Lamp functionality - multiple uses
Despite its playful appearance, the book lamp is very practical. Thanks to the adjustable design, it can be used in a variety of situations and forms: you can lay it down flat on the table, stand it on one side, open up and more — adjusting not only the lamp's look but also light intensity.
With its unique shape and adjustable design, the lamp has a variety of usages and applications: a table lamp, a floor lamp, a ceiling pendent lamp or a wall sconce and more. A thing of note here is that you must attach the lamp to a metal surface if you want to hang it.
With the lamp's universal design, you won't be in any way limited when it comes to choosing the right spot for the "book". For example, you can use it for a candlelight dinner to create a pleasant and romantic atmosphere. Or, you can put it in your bedroom and use the lamp as a night light. What's more, the lamp would make a truly unique gift for almost any occasion.
