Rechargeable LED Neck Reading Light

Hi, I'm new to the Pacemaker Club and have a question. My 85 year old mother just got a pacemaker a month ago this Friday -3.5.2021 and loves to read. We bought her a neck reading light for easier reading and she is worried that it might interfere with her pacemaker.  It is Rechargeable & Long-Lasting] USB Type-C rechargeable which is reversible and thus easier to plug in compared with other Micro-USB. Up to 80 hours (general reading, single head) of powerful, non-diminishing brightness from the included premium rechargeable 1000mAh battery. Does anyone know if this neck light is okay for her to use? It hangs around her neck and has 2 lights-one hangs right above her pacemaker. Thank you so much!

No problem

Unless she is dropping a very large magnet directly on top of her pacemaker, almost no consumer device is going to interfere with it. I use one of those lights all the time. 

Lights fine but be careful of headphones, speakers or phones

I would echo that the lights will be fine.

It is not true though that all consumer devices are definitely safe. Certain headphones, speakers, induction ovens and mobile phones all can affect pacemakers if they are close enough to the chest.

The manufacturer of the pacemaker or Dr can tell you more.

Becky & quikjraw, be aware, there is a diff between using the light & having it on the neck while charging…

You know you're wired when...

You invested in the Energizer battery company.

So, my advice is to go about your daily routine and forget that you have a pacemaker implanted in your body.
