KINGLAKE Aluminium Alloy T800 Dimmable LED Desk Lamp

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 12.05.03 PMSince most of my work is done at the desk, I am a big user of desk lights. Until now I was a big fan of halogen lights since they gave me the most intense and concentrated light. However, they have a whole host of issues: they get really hot, and their light bulbs tend to be really hard to replace. Since the LED lighting has come a long way in recent years, I was ready to try it out with my desk lights. So far I have been pretty impressed. Here are some of my impressions of this Kinglake T800 desk lamp.

**** Pros ****

– Decent amount of light. I have completely replaced my old halogen desk lamp with this one. Works fine for my main purpose while at my work desk writing reviews such as this one.

– Neat and elegant design. The lamp looks very contemporary and stylish. Fits well in most modern office environments.

– Convenient dimmer provides for very easily adjustable brightness. I usually like my desk lamps to be as bright as possible, so this feature is not a major plus for me, but I can see how it would be helpful for many others.

– No major source of heat. LED lights are very cool to operate.

– Reasonable price. Since the LED lights use much less power than the conventional lightbulbs, they are much cheaper to operate. This desk light could easily pay for itself after a few months to a year of operation.

– Ability to use the lamp as an USB charger. I can always use another way of charging my iPhone!

– Sturdy build. This is one of the sturdier LED desk lamps that I’ve come across. The all-aluminum build makes it look very luxurious and durable.

**** Cons ****

– No way to adjust the angle of the lighting beyond up and down. Most desk lamps these days have very flexible necks that allow you to adjust them to almost any spatial angle imaginable. This desk lamp only has two degrees of freedom.

– The LED light quality can feel a bit cold and uninviting. This is not a major issue for me for desk lights, but in general I prefer light bulbs with much more “warm” look and feel.
