Photos are misleading

7/21/2015 by Alisa

I just received the SOI and disappointed in the brightness of this light. It is not bright enough. Also, the main photo here shows that the entire items is lit evenly, it is not the case - there are two light elements on opposite sides of SOI and the middle is not lit. More light elements could have been used. I think SOI will be useless for big bags.


just OK

unfortunately, my bag is deep, so the light often does not detect mr reaching into the bag and doesn't illuminate unless i tap it. sort of defeats the purpose. not quite bright enough in the day time, but better in evening darkness. sorry to say, i would not purchase this again.

The case opened in my bag. Too expensive. But way cool


Great Concept except....

This is a great concept. However my handbag is probably 12" deep and is made of very soft leather. So everything falls to the bottom including the light which gets buried underneath stuff so for me it hasn't really helped as my hands don't always touch it as it is usually on the bottom under everything. Probably work better in a firmer bag that's not so deep.


Not sensitive enough

Often does not work unless touched or moved in purse.


Only works about half of the time

Does not consistently work.


This is my second light to purchase.Disappointed because the package came in with the light on, so the life of the light is not as long as it should be.

This is my second purchas if the product. They should improve their package so the light isn’t on during shipping.
It would last longer.
I would have given it a better score otherwise.

The 2nd one I pulled out the other day to give as a present and it does not work at all!!


Poor customer service

4/29/2018 by PAULA VENNER

I purchased 2 of these lights, one for myself and my sister. Unfortunately I dropped mine about 3 weeks after my purchase, it would not come back on! I called customer service and told him honestly what had happened, he told me since I had dropped it they could not cover the warranty. I was very disappointed that I had no recourse and vowed not to buy from them again. However, my sister loves hers and we both used it on a recent cruise for our nighttime bathroom runs! I am considering purchasing another one!!


Give up digging thru your purse in the dark

I love the eggy shape of this light which is supposed to light when touched. However, it lights when ANY thing touches it and I am enough of a New Englander to think that's wasteful.
I think it's a wonderful idea and am still using it. But a low rating because it isn't sensitive to just the heat of my hand.

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).
