NUGREEN LED DESK LAMP

Iíve been using this excellent little task lamp all over the place.  It has a low-profile head filled with 50 bright white [4,500K] LEDs, which, along  its adjustable gooseneck, makes it easy to light just the right angle on a project. Iíve had it illuminate the locks under a video camera during a lock picking class, light a 3D printer bed for build photos, and help me with some fine electronics soldering. I like the nifty capacitive switch at the base Ė a touch of finger turns it on or off; a longer press activates the dimmer.

 

I honestly didnít expect it to be such a workhorse, but I really do grab it and take it from my garage workshop to my electronics workbench to the kitchen table, and elsewhere depending on where Iím working. Intriguingly, the cord running from a 12V battery source with ease, just in case you need to tinker on the go.
