I'm gradually changing all my electric lamps to Modern Lantern lamps, and I'm so glad I'm making the switch! These Norma Jean Mini lamps are in the living room, and work very well. The battery lasts a long time, and once they do run out of energy, will re-charge in a snap. The only concern I had was that the green lamp base causes the light to cast green up into the included white lampshade. These lamps use a standard spider-type lampshade (small size - 8-9 inch), so it was easy to replace the lamp shade with a darker one that takes away the green cast. But other than that, I'm absolutely pleased with these lamps! I found Modern Lantern at a Tiny House convention, and I'm so glad I held on to their advertising material! These lamps have made a positive impact on my life.
