Doesn't everyone have that ONE place where you need a lamp where there is no plug? I love the style of the lamp. This is beautiful, it is very well made, and the weight is just right. I got the 30w and the 50w light bulbs. I started with the 50w and it draws power off quicker than I thought. Although from reading up on the lamp I knew that ahead of time, and only planned to use it for reading. My husband thought it could be used like a normal lamp, trying to leave it on from dusk till bedtime, confused when it turned off. I still expected it to last longer than it did. It only lasted a couple of hours, so I charged it and switched to the 30w. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars, but that's picky because it DOES run on a battery. Thanks for a great product!
