  1. Mario N. (verified owner)

    Absolutely fantastic lights, and Jordan (one of the owners of the company) was extremely helpful in choosing finish and size. The artwork presents magnificently – thank you!

  2. Juan P. (verified owner)

    The client reported excellent light quality and coverage.

  3. George (verified owner)

    This is an elegantly designed and beautifully machined product. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth the price. It is hardly noticeable on my 28″ x 32″ frame, and its tiny light beautifully illuminates my painting. There is nothing you need do but set it on your frame. For proper balance, I needed to attach a spacer that was provided, but this is hardly worth mentioning. I highly recommend the product.

  4. Stacey J. (verified owner)

    Super item! Well engineered and so fantastic. I will be back to purchase some more.

  5. Alan M. (verified owner)

    We have fine art collection of pieces from our travels around the world. finding the right light that both shows off our pieces without the light becoming the distraction has been a struggle until we found Situ art light. It has really been a great find. Also, not having to run wires or have an electrician put a junction box to hardwire lighting has heightened our pleasure

  6. Amanda (verified owner)

    This light is fantastic! We tried one from another manufacturer but it wouldn’t sit right on the frame. The rechargeable feature is great. Highly recommend!

  7. karl s. (verified owner)

    Great product. Very nice spot light for the size. Battery holds it’s charge well and easy mounting (ours just rest on the frame). This was a repeat purchase. Plus, customer service was quick to answer a question on our order and change it as requested. Very professional.

  8. Carolyn S. (verified owner)

    Purchased a mini-spot. Excellent quality. Clever design . No installation needed! Re-ordered three more after my initial order. Battery life up to 40 hours before re-charge necessary.
    Very responsive customers service! The actual owner, Jordan, personally responded to my e-mail regarding a question I had !

  9. Emily J. (verified owner)

    We are so happy that we discovered these for use in our art gallery. We can highlight paintings on our easels without wires that may trip someone. We recently ordered a couple more after seeing how fabulous they are !!

  10. David M. (verified owner)

    I am EXTREMELY happy with my picture light. Situlighting is the only company that makes the size I need. Recharging instead of a cord is brilliant.

  11. Todd R (verified owner)

    Awesome products, unsurpassed quality.

  12. George M. (verified owner)

    We LOVE all the lights and will continue to buy as needed. Thank you.

  13. Les H.

    Beautiful, elegant, unobtrusive.
    Note to the forgetful: tape a small note to inside of housing telling you where you put the charger. I put my charger away and forgot where it was when I needed it. Now when I take the light off to charge it, I read my note “ charger in front hutch”. Voila! No searching.

  14. Eddie H. (verified owner)

    Awesome lights! We love them and have recommended them several times! I just hate I can only give them five stars.

  15. Philip F. (verified owner)

    Excellent and elegant. Have received many compliments.

  16. Christine L. (verified owner)

    This is the perfect light for smaller pictures by allowing the light to focus on the art and not the light itself. It is easy to set up and try out on different pictures without drilling holes into anything. It also arrives precharged. Love it.

  17. Michael B (verified owner)

    This is my second mini spot purchase in as many weeks. Absolutely love them!

  18. Michael B (verified owner)

    A fantastic product. Very pleased with my purchase.

  19. Sam (verified owner)

    We have been in need of a lighting system for several paintings that would not require a wall outlet, fixation to a wall, or fixation to the antique frame. This product fit the bill to a tee! Easy to charge-up and the installation was effortless. The LED light provides a spectral response that really brings the correct color, hue, and tone out of our 100+ year old paintings. Two brightness settings are a bonus. We were so impressed with the first Cordless Rechargeable Light, we ordered two more – WORTH EVERY PENNY!

  20. Sherry W. (verified owner)

    Excellent Product. This was exactly the light I wanted. It works perfectly – just as described. Thanks for this excellent USA made product.

  21. Philip F. (verified owner)

    Excellent, high- quality product. Easy clip on feature; elegant look,; and clear bright light. Very pleased.

  22. Keith (verified owner)

    I am very pleased with my purchase. The quality and ease of use is excellent. The design is pleasing and doesn’t detract from the image I am lighting. The light coverage couldn’t be better for the picture. I like the fact that there are no installation holes nor wires in the fauxed art niche. Very practical for my purposes.

  23. Heather J. (verified owner)

    I had high expectation based on the reviews and the mini light exceeded my expectations. It is so simple and elegant. Right out of the box it is easy to use. I immediately ordered two more. Jordan offered superior customer service. It’s a lost art form and he is the master. Super helpful, answered my email on a Sunday morning! Great company and great light. If in doubt, don’t be. Just order it.

  24. Wendy W. (verified owner)

    Just received the mini light, and I couldn’t be happier with the shipping, quality, and ease of use. It looks beautiful on my small piece, and I plan to purchase more. Thank you for a wonderful product and fast service. Your website is also very helpful!

  25. Barbara C. (verified owner)

    I am extremely pleased with the quality of light this fixture sheds on my artwork. It exceeds the quality of other battery operated lights, which I have found to be wholly unacceptable. I am thrilled with this one. The only downside would be if a frame is very thin in which case the base of the light might extend beyond the depth of the frame. I was told, however, that the company is working on a more streamlined version to eliminate this potential issue.

  26. David S. (verified owner)

    Exactly what I was looking for.
    Pretty pricey, but work well.

  27. Danny R. (verified owner)

    We love love LOVE our Situ mini-spot which majestically illuminates the painting that was created by a very close friend of my husband Rich. I was able to surprise Rich with this treasured gift for our 45th anniversary. It lights up the starry sky and snow-capped mountains of our “Walkin Road at Dusk” piece of art. Even the brush strokes show brilliantly. Your packaging is exquisite and your personal letter shows how much you and your staff truly care about quality and customer satisfaction. I enjoyed the “chat” that I had with one of your employees prior to placing my order. She advised that I should get the short neck spot light and she was spot on. There is no bleed-off onto the wall which I love.

  28. Ed M. (verified owner)

    Love your mini spot. I’ve bought three so far and will definitely buy more. I couldn’t believe the difference the light made to my art work. They’re easy to purchase, and delivered within a couple of days. Charging and mounting is a breeze. After all my searching for the perfect light, I found it at Situ Lighting. Thanks, Ed M.

  29. Matt (verified owner)

    Impressive light! I had to charge it for about an hour when I opened the package and it has been fantastic ever since! It is worth the extra cost to have a spotlight for my artwork that does not need to be wired or have bulky batteries. It doesn’t have to be screwed into the back of the frame and is secure when it’s in position behind the frame.

  30. Chris (verified owner)

    Very fine product. Intelligent and sleek design. Provides good lighting for a detailed photograph. The fixture is fragile/delicate, but accompishes it’s task. I spoke to customer service prior to purchase and spoke to a knowledgeable and courteous staff member. I would purchase from Situ again in the future.

  31. Susan D. (verified owner)

    This is an elegant, beautifully made light with two intensities that can be adjusted according to the art being lighted—or one’s mood. It’s simple to install, charge and even has a timer for five hours. It’s perfect for evenings. I’m an artist and I appreciate how it brings out all the nuances of color and texture in my paintings. I recommend it to my clients.

  32. Ann (verified owner)

    I’m so happy with this little but mighty light! I have several old oil portraits, and was concerned with how this would actually sit on/behind some of the very old thick frames. It actually sort of balances between the wall and frame, and highlights the image perfectly. There’s a tiny screw at the neck of the light; I’m not sure if this can be turned to adjust where the light hits the painting, but for now the direction is perfect.
    I’ll be ordering more!

    From Situ Lighting:

    Ann, the head can absolutely be moved to adjust where the light is aimed. This is all part of the design. The screw you mention does not need to be adjusted to do so.

    Any questions, always feel free to give us a call at 1-800-561-0492.

    Thanks,
    Situ Lighting

  33. Joe (verified owner)

    Wow – great light!

    So simple to set up, really minimal design, and perfectly lights our art without a cord. The company owner was very helpful on the phone with choosing the right lighting for our painting.

    Slight delay with customs coming into Canada – other than that, can’t recommend the product and Situ enough!

  34. Linda

    Jordan goes above and beyond to please his customers. Beautiful, Hugh quality products. Some issues when lighting art that is framed with glass which didn’t work for us but no problem with returns.

  35. Kenneth Brown Design (verified owner)

    absolutely love it. plan to use on all our projects

  36. Steve (verified owner)

    Excellent product. Just what was needed to highlight art work. Purchased 2 and plan to purchase 2 more.

  37. Claude B. (verified owner)

    My wife and I have been collecting for many decades and when we built our new home, we spent a great deal of time planning where each painting would go on the walls. We made sure that our electrician installed recessed wall outlets for plug-in art lights at each of these spots. It worked 95% of the time… but for the few spots we missed or never thought of using for display, the Situlighting mini projectors are working perfectly because they are batteries operated. Very well made, sleek looking and providing great light quality illumination for our art work.

    Claude & Katherine. Napa Valley, California.

  38. Doug Sturgess

    Received this art light yesterday for my Fabulous Fox Theater metal print. It had gone without lighting for too long. No outlet on wall made direct lighting impossible. This LED battery operated light stylishly fixed the problem & brings out the beautiful colors in this image. Highly recommend this light. Fine art print for sale & customizable to fit your space. http://www.sturgessart.com

  39. Susan B. (verified owner)

    LOVE this light. A Google search finally hit on this site. I positioned it over a lovely oil painting I recently purchased. Very pretty. I will purchase another. Complete satisfied.

  40. Brian D.

    Very pleased

  41. Terry E

    Love the light. I have spent 45 years in professional theater as a lighting person so I think I have some qualifications in what makes a good light. This is a very good light. I does exactly what it is designed for. It illuminates the picture without calling attention to the light source. So it’s all about the art, not the light. I just wish that they would put this lighting head on the arttrack power source so it would have a remote control. But the light is great plus the company is great! Any questions or concerns were answered with a phone call. When I didn’t actually talk to a person and left a message, the return call came within 10 minutes. I wholeheartedly recommend this light and this company.

  42. Karyn K. (verified owner)

    Just what we wanted

  43. Nathaniel W.

    I own an art framing shop that also sells picture lighting. For years I have had customers looking for battery powered lights for pictures that are in locations that make running hardwired electricity hard and have been forced to tell them that there aren’t any options that offer quality and functionality in the battery light category.

    I am thrilled to be contacting customers that I’ve previously been unable to help, demonstrating the product to interior designers, and showcasing in our own shop.

    The body of the lights are very well made, the batteries last for almost a full week at 8 hours a day in the shop, the light is balanced and warm (not blue or peach tinted as many LED’s are), and give a fantastic pop to art.

    There are no cheap picture lights, these lights are worth every penny.

  44. L. K. (verified owner)

    This cordless light is amazing! I bought it for an abstract painting sized 33″x33″ and it is perfect!! I found Situlighting through their ad in Veranda, and my only regret is that I did not see it sooner!!
    I also purchased the singular track light for a 37″x37″ abstract and it too is excellent, its remote makes the on-off and variations in light adjustment very easy.
    Your products are beautifully crafted!!

  45. C. Wilson (verified owner)

    Great light

  46. Rick B. (verified owner)

    I have been a customer for over a year and have tried more art lighting than i care to admit. Situlighting is by far the best quality, value and just great looking. I have plenty of areas with art that doesn’t allow a plug in or the cost of wiring just doesnt make sense. The mini-spot is perfect!

  47. Richard (verified owner)

    I love the Mini Spot … design – quality workmanship – ease of use – excellent art lighting. It would be nice to have similar piece that would work well on thinner frames. `

  48. Hal W (verified owner)

    I cannot tell if the cost of the hardware, the meticulous assembly and ingenious desisgn of the Mini-spot warrant the $229 they ask for it. But, I can tell you that this little light will turn a lackluster exhibit into a warm vibrant display.

  49. Nancy S. (verified owner)

    I love the sleekness of this light.
    The fact that there is no cord showing or that I do not have to deal with batteries is an added plus.
    It is excellent illumination for my paintings and
    being a designer, all these elements are important for both my clients and me.

  50. haldw (verified owner)

    Upon further reflection – does the mini-spot reflect off a glass covered picture? Yes, but you will not notice the spot unless your line of sight is lower than the picture you are Illuminating. Even then I find that small spot no more annoying than the reflection of the lamp or window across the room. I am now awaiting the arrival of my second mini-spot.

    From Situ:
    Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with glare. Removing glare from artwork behind glass is a challenge with any art light and ultimately comes down to the angles involved.

    Our general advice is as follows:

    1) Install your artwork as near to eye level as possible. It’s a matter of angles: your height, height of the artwork, and the height of the light. Moving the light higher or changing the height of your painting will allow you to “move” this glare off of the glass and “on” to the frame or wall. To understand, try this: Take a few steps towards and away from your artwork while looking at the glare. This will give you a sense of how it changes relative to viewing angles and your height. You will unfortunately experience this with all art lights. Glare is very difficult and leads me to the following:

    2) Remove the glass. There are low glare glasses made (museum glass, etc) that help cut down on reflection but it mainly helps with ambient lighting glare (reflection of furniture, windows, people etc. Glass is really difficult to work around (with and without art lighting).

    It’s a matter of shining light directly at a piece of glass. No matter what, some of that light will reflect. Number 1) above is best option for moving and possibly eliminating the glare.

    Love that this product is made in the US and is of wonderful quality. I knew my little painting was wonderful but it gets lost on the wall. Once I put this light on, it became a centerpiece.

  52. Rebecca R. (verified owner)

    I love it. It illuminates the entire picture in a soft glow. Thought it was a little pricey at first but it was well worth it.

  53. ANDREA K. (verified owner)

    Great product! Sleek looking, easy to set up, great light. Very happy

  54. James G.

    We just received our second cordless light and are about to order a third – excellent products – dramatic improvement in our art displays and excellent customer relations and followup.

  55. Rebecca R. (verified owner)

    After much searching this was exactly what I needed! It illuminates my picture beautifully and much better than any other lighting tried. The whole picture is on display instead of just the top few inches.

  56. Carol (verified owner)

    My Situ light is the answer to my search for a cordless and discreet light. It is perfect. On top of that, the customer service I received was excellent. I intend to answer more of my picture lighting challenges with Situ~

  57. Alan (verified owner)

    This is a high quality product that works perfectly and is exactly what I was looking for. Could not find anything else online that was comparable. Not cheap but you get exactly what you pay for and worth every penny.

  58. Mary H. (verified owner)

    I love these so much that I’m ordering two more!!!

  59. Scott J. (verified owner)

    Excellent, no hassel lighting. I purchased 1 and liked it so much I bought 3 more. Will buy more in the future.

    Highly recommended!!

  60. Dianne C. (verified owner)

    Wow! I just had my framed painting put up with your magnificent Mini lights. I had no idea just how beautiful my artwork would look with your lighting. It truly looks like something in a museum. It does Justice for the painting like nothing else could have . Thank you so much for creating these wonderful mini lights that are hardly seen. It was brilliant of you and very much needed. Dianne C.

  61. A.B.F. (verified owner)

    Just sensational. Very beautiful lighting, This lighting is absolutely brilliant. It is small and the light is very powerful. Two settings so you can have a bright light and a slightly dimmer light. I am so very pleased.

  62. Rob J.

    This light knocks me out. I purchased 2 of these along with 4 Touch LED lights. These are exceptionally well designed, with a pivoting light head. Excellent build quality and excellent service. Really well done.

  63. Joan D. (verified owner)

    The mini spot is the perfect answer to lighting a small painting in a Santa Fe wall nicho rather than expensive hard wiring. Thank you to Situlighting for this innovative product

  64. Christine C.

    Excellent product! Beautifully designed, worth the price! Easily charges,then simply slip the unit behind picture and you are done. Small switch on top turns light on / off and allows you to adjust brightness with two selections. We are ordering our third one and will buy one for each new piece of art. We loved this light so much we brought it to the attention of 4 local art galleries in our area and sung its praises. No wiring, no electricians… simply lift it off the piece of art, charge it and you have 40 hours of great art enhancing light.

  65. Tim H.

    The mini-spot is perfect for lighting our antique textiles effectively in areas where no power outlet is readily available. It is especially good for highlighting smaller pieces of embroidery or framed weavings. We will be ordering additional lighting for our display gallery.

  66. Beth H. (verified owner)

    These lights exceeded my expectations in every way. They are gorgeous and sleek in design, perfectly balanced and weighted, and they have a museum quality that is, in a word, outstanding. My initial order was for two units, and now I plan to order several more. Don’t hesitate to invest in these little wonders, they’re fabulous. I wish I’d have invented them!

  67. Tim M. (verified owner)

    A great product. I will need more than one. I love how they balance on the frame with ease. If I decide I want to illuminate a new artwork to see the effect I simply move it. No holes, no issues, no confusing instructions. Charge it, hang it, enjoy. The mini-spot will bring your art to life!

  68. Donna I. (verified owner)

    Exactly the product I was hoping to find. The mini-spots illuminate my pictures beautifully!

  69. JoAnne U. (verified owner)

    The mini-spots are terrific. There isn’t anything else like them on the market that work so well. I’m an artist and use these little lights in my studio and home to showcase my art. It’s true they are pricey, but they’re worth it for me. Plan to buy several more.

  70. David L. (verified owner)

    Excellent light in every respect. The design; the fit; the finish; and the light itself. An easy item to recommend. And worth every penny.

  71. Lauren G. (verified owner)

    This mini light is the perfect solution for the artwork above our bed. It also prodives us with a little extra reading light! Good quality, sleek design. Highly recommend for places where you don’t want to hardwire or have a cord show.

  72. Peter L. (verified owner)

    My wife is thrilled with our purchase and in fact I want to order another one now.

  73. John (verified owner)

    This product is perfect for the purpose I was seeking. I wanted an unobtrusive, cordless, light I didn’t have to attach to the wall to highlight some framed military medals. The small mini-spot was exactly what I was looking for and works perfectly. I set it up immediately on the frame and It beautifully highlights the medals. I would highly recommend this product.

  74. Gary C. (verified owner)

    This is a great product. Well designed with minimal profile that doesn’t take away from the artwork displayed. I would definitely purchase another one when needed.

  75. JEC (verified owner)

    I am very happy with the mini-spot. The look of a custom installation without an electrician. Hopefully in the future there will be a remote control feature.

  76. Joyce H. (verified owner)

    We love it! Had to charge it for the first time the other night, but it

    works great, is lightweight and really shows off our painting.

    Thank you for the product and for showing concern for the customer.

  77. Ray R (verified owner)

    Great little light for small art work. Extremely well made , easy to install, charge and use. Perfect for places installing power and a switch would be difficult. Also immediate shipping.

  78. Marc J. (verified owner)

    From now on I am going to buy them for all my client’s art work. Simply the best!!!!!!!

  79. Gail L. (verified owner)

    These are THE best picture/painting lights I have found! For years I’ve struggled with poor quality lights that fell apart, were hard to install, had ugly wiring, were cumbersome and for all that, didn’t even provide enough lighting to enhance a painting. These are pure genius!

  80. Peter P. (verified owner)

    Awesome streamlined design and lovely in appearance. It is perfect.

    Only problem is that I now feel compelled to purchase a second for another favorite painting.

  81. Betsy S. (verified owner)

    If only I could show you the Before and After! Amazing product that avoids my having an electrician come in and put in a hard wired light. I’ll order more as these are sleek, do the job, and are so convenient….
    Love that it’s made in USA too!

  82. Steve S. (verified owner)

    They work perfectly and are of very high quality that accents the art work.

    I do wish that they had remote control…perhaps in a new model?

  83. Larry K.

    wow, so easy to install. It does not distract from the painting. Thanks.

  84. Louise F (verified owner)

    Brilliant! The design is sleek and the function unbeatable. My paintings came alive and I did not need an electrician.

  85. E.M.

    I came across these after owning a LightBob. These lights were perfect for my smaller paintings. I didn’t even have to take the painting off of the wall install them. Would definitely recommend.
