The unit is Lithium battery powered and will illuminate for over 20 continuous hours." The company says it lasts for months when used for an average of 2-3 hours per day. The device features squeeze-to-light and an on/off switch; eyelighters are currently available in 3 illumination colors for $10 each: bright white, bright blue and red.

It features five levels of inclination, with external keyboard storage in the rear of the unit when operating at the steep angular, desktop mode. Pricing is expected to be between $35 and $50.
