The perfect gift

11/25/2016 by Brenda

I purchased for my DIL, and her huge shoulder bag. Haven't used yet as a stocking stuffer. However, just playing with it, it looks ideal. Quick burst of light and fade.


Love It!

This simple, strangely calming, soft light is amazing! In fact, I keep showing it to every woman I meet and every single one wants one desperately... (I am buying 5 more for Christmas presents for teachers, secretaries and my daughter-in-law...I will be collecting major "best gift EVER" points for sure!)

What I especially like about it is how you don't have to fumble for a switch (I actually have 5 or 6 small flashlight-kabob things that I don't bother with precisely because you DO have to find the thing...then find the then, it's easier to dump your damn purse out.

And the SOI stays on just long enough (though my husband -- who initially scoffed at my new toy -- was reading a menu by its light a few nights ago because his phone battery was running down...he wished its light lasted just a bit longer.)

Anyway, BRILLIANTLY simple, kinda zen and practical for anyone who carries her life and every possibly useful tool or a jumble of "IknowI'llneeditsomeday" items in her woman-sized purse and is endlessly scrambling in her black hole of a handbag for her phone or keys or...


Great for big purses

The light is expensive, but it is really useful and works as described. I have one for my purse and for my tennis bag. I'm giving one to my tennis partner's, because it is so useful!

I bought this as a gift. It really works well. I had to try it out before I gave it away. I think I will need more!


light in the dark bag

This light has been a great purchase. It's very light and turns on automatically when I open my bag, enabling me to find anything inside easily.

I love this light. I ordered several more to give as gifts. It's a great idea. I use it everyday. Amazing what you find in a purse when you can see


Wish I'd discovered this a long time ago!

I love this. Most of my purses have dark linings and this motion-activated light illuminates the contents of my purse night or day, making it much easier to locate small items.


Works Great!

The SOI Story

SOI - Sensor Bag Light

Reach & See

Rummaging around blindly for something in your bag or backpack is a thing of the past. Say hello to SOI.

SOI is the world’s first automatic bag light. Put it in your purse, briefcase, or backpack and, when you reach in to grab something, SOI instantly lights up. This little disc has detection technology that recognizes when a hand is nearby and turns on. Then it automatically shuts off a few moments after you remove your hand.

Founders Christian Schech and Bastian Wetzel came up with the idea for SOI during a power failure at a folk festival. They looked around at all the women using cigarette
lighters or cell phones to look inside their bags, and knew there had to be a better way.

SOI weighs less than 1.5 ounces and is easy to transfer from bag to bag. It’s hands-free, energy efficient, and sustainably produced—nearly all of the materials used to make SOI are 100% recyclable. After 3,000 or so cycles, just replace the batteries.

Save yourself time and hassle, and let SOI make your life a little easier (and a little brighter).
