    Default Are You Happy With Your Bench Light?

    I had thought for a while about replacing my old Anglepoise lamp with something more up to date. The trend now is for lamps to have energy saving LED strips and be operated by touch.

    The lamp I chose has a touch on/off switch, can be dimmed by touching the illuminated strip on the base shown in my picture and has a choice of three colour temperatures, warm white, cool white and daylight. It has 27 LEDs and is virtually shadow less

    The base is very stable and is made of aluminium, as is the jointed arm.
    The downside is that the base takes up some valuable work space, and that when the LEDs finally die, it will only be fit for the re-cycling bin. That said the life expectancy is claimed to be 50,000 hours.

    It will allow me to experiment with different brightnesses and colours of light, and at a cost of 13.77 including postage and VAT, its hardly a major investment.
    Maximum output 500lm, or around 50W in old incandescent lamps. Dennis.
