Let there be light

Brilliant versatility

It functions either within the clip or free-standing. Press once for high light and twice for low light. And the clip rotates so you can shine it in any direction.

Shining efficiency

Two AA batteries provide approximately 30 hours of light. Mantis automatically shuts off after two hours of use, just in case you decided to snooze.

Let there be light
Invented By


Indianapolis, IN

Like all Quirky products, Mantis was invented and influenced by real people like you. A light bulb appeared over Clinton Fleenor's head when Quirky called for new lighting solutions. He had read a feature article about ambient lights increasing visual awareness and decreasing stress. His own home, a loft he shared with his wife, needed something similar. She was an early riser, but sometimes Clinton wanted to work at night. Mantis solved this very problem.
