USB Reading Lamp with Flexible Gooseneck Review
Every night I sit with my laptop and write reviews. Unfortunately I don’t have a lamp anywhere close to my end of the couch. So, I’m up and down a lot when I need to see details about the product I’m telling you about. So I was thrilled to be given a USB Reading Lamp from i2 Gear.
This USB reading lamp has a 12″ flexible goose-neck that you can move and adjust to suit your needs. There are two extra bright LEDs with two steps of adjustable brightness. To adjust the brightness just click the switch on the top of the lamp. Since this lamp works in any USB port I can use it in my laptop, desktop computer, USB hub and wall chargers. Since this lamp doesn’t require batteries so it’s a very versatile little lamp!
The USB light is also lightweight weighing in at only 1 ounce. Added bonus; it’s rated for 50,000 hours of use.
This light is so easy to use; plug into the USB port and tap the button on the top of the light. Once or twice depending on the amount of light you need. I love that the neck is so flexible that I can really twist it and to put light where I need it the most.
The lamp itself is made of a strong black plastic. The flexible line that goes from the USB port to the light is a thin metal adjustable housing. This housing can easily bend and twist; I really like that.
I wish there was a sturdy area at the USB plug-in area or maybe just a thicker cord. Every once in a while the light will start to gently lay to the side. I found if I twist the light more it stops that from happening. Overall you won’t find a better USB reading lamp for a better price. Extra light where and when you need it.
I need something like this. My desk lamp has died AGAIN. The 3rd one since Christmas – I had it relaced twice so it must be the design/make fault. It wasn’t terrible expensive but it was really bright and much needed in my room that’s always dark & gloomy.
I used to have a mini reading lamp for books but I haven’t tried a usb lamp before. I like that the lamp has different brightness levels and needs no additional cords or app to function.
This light would be helpful when I am using my laptop in bed when Hubs is sleeping. Thanks for the review!
Wow, this is exactly what I’m looking for. I had no idea that they made lamps that went into a USB port. I can commiserate with your whine, though. I, too, have a tendency to start to lay gently to the side, and like the lamp, if I’m twisted more, I stay upright. Small world, isn’t it?
Ha ha! Know the feeling!
I would love to have this lamp for sewing, both needlework and at the machine! It would be perfect!
