The Litebook Elite is the new generation of light therapy, the result of years of research and development in hand-held light therapy devices. The Elite features a custom lens and diffusion system which, combined with the high-performance white LEDs that all Litebook products are known for, produces a uniform field of bright yet soothing light. Additional innovative features for the Elite include a multiple-setting timer (15-30-45-60 minutes) and a long-lasting built-in rechargeable lithium-ION battery with a charge indicator – all of this in a compact, sleek design which fits into your lifestyle. When used every day, The Litebook Elite will improve your mood, increase your energy level and restore your sleep patterns. Most people notice results within 30 days - often sooner.
Typical usage time is 15-30 minutes a day. Regular daily usage is recommended. Optimally, the Litebook Elite should be used first thing in the morning, as early as possible upon awakening. For some people, especially seniors, who fall asleep earlier than they’d like and wake up either too often or too early, we recommend using your Litebook Elite in the early evening to tell your body that you’re not ready to go to sleep. This will help you sleep through the night and awaken at your preferred time. The Litebook Elite should be positioned approximately 12-24 inches (30-60 cm) from your face, and should be offset slightly from center to reduce glare with the light beam must be directed at your eyes, and your eyes must be open to achieve benefit.
We encourage use of The Litebook Elite while engaged in other activities, such as reading, eating, applying makeup, or working at a computer or desk. However, take care that The Litebook Elite is NOT brought into contact with water or heat-producing appliances, as they may damage The Litebook Elite, and may pose possible fire hazards.

works great, but some downsides. Review by Marcy
I have this, and it works excellently for treating my SAD, as long as I use it daily. If I miss a day or two, I definitely notice! One downside is that it doesn't shine down on your eyes from above, as some research suggests that this is better. I have mine actually taped on to another gooseneck lamp, just so that I can have the light shining down. The other downside is that it is very small. I have to adjust the positioning exactly, and then can't really move my head for 30 minutes, or the light won't be shining into my eyes. I am looking for a new, slightly bigger one now.

Love my Litebook! Review by LaughingBoy
I suffered from SAD for years before discovering light therapy in the late 90's. Back then, all there was were the big fluorescent light boxes - and while they did help some, I hated how big and clunky they are, and how I couldn't take it with me to the office if I didn't get my full 30 mins. with it in the mornings, or if I went away for the weekends. Not to mention they just look like there's something wrong with you having that big honkin' box hoggin' your desk!
Now with my little Litebook, not only do I get my shot of light every day, no matter where I am, I also get a lot of people asking, "Hey, cool! What is that?!" I also find I only need about 15 mins/day instead of the 30 with the old box. For the past year I have been using it every day all year round, and have more energy and better sleep.
Bottom line: a well-made product that delivers the goods. (Posted on 8/8/09)
