Product review: ToJane Clamp LED Desk Lamp

This desk clamp lamp comes with two different clamp options.  It has two joints, one section is 15.5" and the second section is 16".  The third joint controls the head of the lamp and it can pivot 360 degrees. It can be moved up and down and side to side.  The best feature of this lamp is how flexible it is in position the light. 

How bright? The light has three level of brightness. On its brigtest setting the amount of light it produces is similar to a 60 watt CFL bulb. I measured its brightness with a lux meter at 19" (bright mode is 565 lux, medium 227 lux, and dim is 91 lux) and compared it with a reading I got from a CFL bulb at the same distance (527 lux). The spotlight it generates is somewhat smaller than a CFL bulb. It is sufficient to light the entire large format book, but not enough to light my entire desk surface with the same amount of light - the edges of the desk are darker.  In the video you can see it lighting a large book, the book is fully in the light, but you can see the edges of the desk that are not well lighted.  This is a nature of LED lights and to be expected.

The lamp has a nice large touch control. I like that it is large and position on top of the light panel. It is easy to reach and easy to control.

Assembly tip: the base has a screen which needs to be loosened and then tightened after the arm is inserted into the base.  This holds the arm securily attached to the base.

To summarize: I like the long neck and that I can re-position it in many way.

You can find it on Amazon by following this link.
