is this unit designed to be left on permanently for say an 8 hour shift in a shop ( ie 9 - 5 ), or is it better to switch it on just when you want to check  a note. which would be better for bulb life? 

Asked by: mike
I am pleased to advise the product you mentioned will do exactly what you require. I would advise to leave it running for a shift.
