Battery LED Puck Lights for Bed Reading

I'm looking for some battery powered LED puck lights to mount under the cabinets over the bed. Anybody have any suggestions on brands/models which are bright enough for night time reading?

Your local Walmart have them. Sorry I do not know the brand name but the use AA batteries are led and will swivel and angle. These can be bought in singles or in packs of 3 at our local WM. There are 2 levels of brightness. I bought a couple for closet lights and they should be plenty for reading also.

Bought one at Walmart in Flagstaff, 3 triple A batteries, direct-able, 2 levels of light, attach by screw or velcro, "ritelite" $6.97 ea, works great will buy more for closets etc. Saw the same type of light at Home Depot couple days ago.

Costco has a 6 pack currently on sale... mount with double faced tape included but I use velcro... they push for on/off or use the include remote for on/off and fading to lower level. They even come with batteries... were on sale for $15, regular $21

each light about the size of a can of smokeless tobacco

now that I look they appear to be the same as the Sams Club pack pictured above, but I am sure they come with 6 lights and ONLY white light not colored

I tried the Walmart ones with the double back tape and it would not hold. I was very disappointed. Maybe I need to try velcro? The actual lighting was great.

HDepot sells velcro sticky back tape and also another HD type, not velcro brand, but I cant think of it. I have used both, but like the heavy duty stuff as the stuff really sticks well to the walls, cabinets, and everywhere I have used it. supposed to be rated for 10# as I recall.

I have the Costco lights. They are nice for "mood lighting" but not bright enough for task lights, reading etc. Save your $ on those.

No they are not bright reading lights, and nothing this size, battery operated probably would be... but several grouped in a small area would be bright enough to read by especially if they are right above your head by a few feet. Nice that they can be all lit or shut off at once with the remote, or individually by pushing directly on the light..

In this context I believe they will work...
