I got one for car camping, primarily. It is stable, bright, and long lasting, yet the LED light is a soft blue-ish, not harsh at all. I clipped on a 'biner and happily read in the tent when the area got a bit buggy. It has a wonderfully adjustable light level, and I got the battery recharger to avoid the waste of batteries (short term) and eventually save $$$ (long term). A nice little piece of gear that folds up to about the size of a fat beer can. I wish the recharge and remaining power indicator was easier to see, but that is the only complaint.
