I bought my LED lamp probably 10 years ago, or whenever it first appeared in Nancy's Notions. In 2017 I gave it to a friend for Christmas. He needed it by his chair in his bedroom to navigate at times. Since then, he emails, texts or calls at least 3 times a year about how much he loves it. He laughs about how many batteries he uses, too! So I recently bought the new one which as a plug. He's going to flip when I get the chance to give it to him. We're both in our 80's & I keep mine on my nightstand, as we lose electricity occasionally! Thanks. PS - also sent one of the new ones to a friend in Dallas, as during the ice storms, she was without electricity for awhile.
