versitile minimalist lamp, mysterious power supply situation.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 6, 2021
This is the exact lamp I need for attaching to the desk below my loft bed. I set it up behind my computer to as a webcam light source that effectively bounces off the bottom of my bed. It's fantastic for this situation and takes up very little space. The lamp itself is terrific, light is nice, the look is nice.
A few issues that I hope I can overlook, but have been confusing:
1) this lamp would be 1000% awesome if it came with a suitable power supply. It doesn't. And the literature is contradictary. I went online to re-learn the electrical skills I needed to discern what power supply was actually needed...but again, the literature leaves a lot of guessing. Generally, a 12W appliance would most likely require 2.4A 5V power supply. This is what I'm using, and it appears to do the job. However—the product description here says it's a 12 watt lamp, but the insert that came with the lamp says it's rated for only 10 watts. So who knows? I've read in the product description here that it needs a 2Amp power supply, and the insert that came with the lamp says it needs a 3Amp power supply. I hope I got it right, but there's not an immediate way for me to know given the lack of clarity.
2) The lamp head gets quite hot quite quickly. It also cools off quite quickly when powered down.
3) the clamp that attaches to the table is sturdy and good, but is not lined with silicone as the product description says, it's lined with foam on one side of the clamp. good enough for me, but I wish the provided info was accurate.
I'll update here if any issues arise.
