Low Glow is a patented LED lighting technology developed by Jenesis International. Low Glow combines a long lasting, low power LED circuit with a diffusing lens. The diffuser catches the light produced by the LED and spreads it across a wider surface area which glows at a level similar to the dashboard lights in your car. It may not be enough light to read by, but it will let you easily find the switch on your reading lamp. Because of the low power draw, a product which uses Low Glow can operate for a year or more on a single set of batteries.
