The light is not very bright at all. I bought three of these for Christmas gifts.I keep mine in my purse but it is not very helpful.

not so hot

I was very excited about this idea. Couldn't get it open to change batteries. Several people tried. Once someone finally got it open, I changed the batteries in it worked fine FOR LESS THAN 24 HOURS! The batteries I put in were fresh from the package.
I returned this product about a week before Christmas using the Grommet's return form. I still haven't received my refund.

Not a happy shopper.


Didn't work

I was disappointed with this item. It wasn't as bright as it appears in the pictures and also didn't work as expected. I have to tap it for it to turn on, I thought it worked by sensing motion. Not at all what I thought it was. I'm returning it.


Would have been a good idea, but...

When I first received this, it was nice and bright, just as in the large photo, and it illuminated when it sensed the motion of my hand near it. Unfortunately, after only a few days, it has only two dim spots and illuminates only what is right next to it. So disappointed. I am going to try to rig some way to get it to stay near the top of my purse in the hope that it will cast more light. To add insult to injury, I see the Container Store has the exact same light for $10 less.

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).
