About the Project

They say ' eyes are our window of the soul '! That is why we invented the iProtect light. It's wireless and easily accessible to use freely while being at home or outdoors. The iProtect light has a patent granted for its silicon base and movement. The silicon base allows a 0-180° fold up angle which brings flexibility to your needs.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    The iProtect is child friendly with its easy accessible functions and its eye protection light of just 3000k.

  • Reality:

    By design, and the option of color temperature at 3000K, the IProtect allows for the possibility of this claim.

Something To Think About

The light does have the ability of going up to a light temperature of 5000K, and at this point would be potentially unhealthy for kids eyes.

  • Claim:

    We have designed the light to have an easy accessible charging station.

  • Reality:

    Straightforward design, allows for an easily accessible charging station.

  • Claim:

    The touch control functions is easy and accessible to use.

  • Reality:

    Typically there is not much complexity when turning on and off a light source. Here, the IProtect keeps up with the industry standard.

  • Claim:

    Wherever your children want to read or write.

  • Reality:

    This is a reality for the most part. The size does, however, implement some limitations.

  • Claim:

    The iProtect is also ideal for the outdoors people.

  • Reality:

    This is potentially a reality, however, there is already a saturated market of lighting for outdoor uses, that may be a better option for practical reasons since the IProtect is a relatively large device.

Bottom Line

The IProtect is a light that is entering a highly populated market. However, with a stylish design and easy to use features, the IProtect is an option for certain backers. Be aware of the practical limitations of using this light "on the go" since it is rather large in comparison to the market of LED flashlights that are continuing to move towards smaller dimensions.
