Evaluation

This is a portable lipstick type mini light for LED lighting. It is a pure lighting fixture with a single function, and the scenes to be applied are unlimited and depend on one's personal preference. The cylindrical external appearance design of the product adopts a size ratio close to lipstick and an internal screw mechanism so that the user can freely adjust the extension and shrinkage of the condenser effect and luminous intensity change of the LED according to the demand of scene and light intensity. Since the light disappears as the lamp shade is housed in the outer cover, the lamp shade is protected. This is a borrowed idea but is very interesting to be applied here. The outer cover of the light which can attract people and make them want to try it, is processed with aluminum alloy CNC, and the anode effect of the surface is high quality. As for usage, it can be used as a key holder worn on the body or attached to a bag, or it can be adhered to a metal wall. This LED light was awarded for its portability, skillful design, modesty and refinement, and surprising elements.
