OxyLED Q1 Rechargeable Wireless LED Desk Lamp

Screen Shot 2014-03-15 at 10.58.19 AMLED lights have really revolutionized lighting. They are small, use up very little energy, and don’t become hot. They have been used in flashlights for quite a while, and now they are slowly but surely moving into all the lighting fixtures in our homes. Thank to their unique features, however, they have many advantages over the incandescent and halogen lights, and can be used for purposes and situations that go well beyond what the traditional lighting was designed to cover. The case in point is OxyLED Q1. It’s a complete redesign of a desk lamp, and a very innovative application of LED technology.

The lamp is just beautifully designed, especially if you are into modern design. Its clean, streamlined look really stands out in any kind of environment. The lamp lacks any moving parts, which only add to its durability and simplicity of design. The octagonally shaped base is sturdy and allows you to position the lamp in a variety of ways and under several different angles. The base houses a rechargeable battery, which allows you to take the lamp anywhere with you. This is an ideal lamp to have not only at your desk, but also at a variety of places where you might temporarily need some lighting, but are out of reach of most power outlet. Reading outdoors, especially on my back porch, is now a very viable option. The light intensity can be adjusted to several different values, from about 100 lumens to 650. That’s more than enough for most reading purposes. At the highest light output the lamp can last several hours without the need for recharging.

This light operates at the 5300 K – 5500 K temperature spectrum. This is as close to the peak daylight spectrum as you’ll come. It makes this lamp give off a very clear, white light. Tis is an ideal light, if you ask me, for reading and writing purposes, as well as showcasing objects in your home. It’s also the kind of light that photographers use in their studios, as it really accentuates the colors of the photographed objects. This could be a good light to have if you are for instance photographing small objects. However, this type of light is not ideal for accent lighting purposes. The light is too sterile and cool looking, and evokes a hospital or some other similar unwelcoming settings.

This is a truly unique and effective light that will be right at place in most modern homes. It’s functional and beautifully designed, and for what it offers very affordable. Highly recommended.
