Now You See It

You bought a small, sensible purse, yet somehow retrieving a tube of lip gloss from its roomy interior has become tantamount to spelunking for a single penny. Cut down on "I could have sworn I had it...right here..." time and make your purse an illuminated vision of order with this automatic handbag light. A simple orb that fits right in your purse or tote, this sleek design lights up at the touch or approach of a hand, letting frantic rummaging lead to revolutionary illumination. The light switches off after a few moments so as not to drain the battery--just enough time to grab that mint, wallet, phone, or keys. Stop Searching. Start finding. Made in Germany.

Batteries will last approximately 6000 cycles (turning on and then turning off) 2x AAA included and installed

Special proximity sensors can tell when your hand is close and will light up in response for approximately 8 seconds
Automatically switches off, saving battery life
Put an end to endless digging through your purse
Small, light, and perfect for travel

Germany

A power failure at a folk festival inspired designers Christian Schech and Bastian Wetzel to see the light. Watching women at the festival rummaging through their purses in the dark, the technically trained duo sought an engineered solution. Previous pocket flashlights were awkward and inconvenient to handle, so the designers' decided to develop a lightweight, conveniently sized handbag light that's portable and easy to use. The team was joined by designer Benedikt Lehnert, whose involvement shaped the design process that produced this illuminating design.

My friend was so surprised

My friend thought it was the coolest gift she has ever received. She carries large bags and is always digging into them blindly.

I read about this light and my husband always having to turn on his cell phone flashlight so I can find keys, lipstick, etc, those things that fall to the bottom of your bag. As soon as your reach into your bag, it turns on, you find what you want, and it turns itself off... Smart product. Ordering more for Christmas gifts!

I got this as a Mother's Day gift for both my Mom and Mother In Law. Both actually called saying how much they liked it and how helpful it was. Haven't heard about battery life (my only concern) but so far works great and lasting well.
