let there be light
I find the light pleasant to my eyes as well as being bright. I'm sure the light will be very useful for reading and other close work too. It costs next to nothing to run, although it certainly wasn't cheap to buy. However, discomfort and eyestrain and headaches all cost something even if not quantified financially.
Two more pictures of the Chimei lamp, one side on, the other from the front. It has a heavy base so would not be very easy to knock over. I like the sleek, dynamic design too. The on/off switch is in the base at the front in the centre, easy to find and operate.
The light is in a flattened area at the top about as long as my hand from fingertip to wrist. Although that part doesn't swivel by itself, the whole lamp can be twisted to different angles bot of the focus of the light and of the bend of the flexi part. It reminded me of the bendy figures my sons had as toys when they were small.
When it was being packed up for sale the salesman apologised as he could no find the box. This particular one had been part of a display. He bent the whole lamp almost doubled over so he could wrap it well. It not only doubled up but could have been twisted like a rope. However when opened out it's quite sturdy.
As you can see, I'm pleased with my purchase.
