Product review: ToJane LED Long Swing Arm Desk Lamp
I measured its brightness with a lux meter at 19" (532 lux) and compared it with a reading I got from a 60 watt 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 free bulb is 7W LED bulb, the maximum power that his lamp can handle is a 40W LED bulb (which in brightness is similar to 200W incandescent bulb).
This desk lamp comes with a base and a clamp. It has two joints, nad has a lot of flexibility, but not as tall as my other engineering lamps. The highest I could raise the shade is 17" from the table. The third joint that controls the shade can pivot 360 degrees.
I like the simplicity of this lamp - on/off and takes regular LED bulbs. No bells and whistles, it just works!
