Making sure that your workspace is well illuminated can have many benefits. It can reduce eye strain because a well-lit workspace means you don’t need to squint or strain your eyes to see what you are doing. It can also add to the overall ambience of your workspace, whether you want to use white light to make reading easier, or if you want to create a cozy atmosphere.
If you’re looking for a new desk lamp to accompany your workspace, then here are some of the best options that we’ve found that might be worth taking a look at.
Xiaomi is known primarily for their phones, but the company has also branched out to other smart home products and the LED desk lamp is one of them. You might have seen their lights in many YouTube desk tour videos and there’s a good reason for it. Not only is it pretty affordable, but it sports a very minimal and clean design.
It is also a smart light meaning that you can actually control it wirelessly using Xiaomi’s Mi Home app, or pair it with a smart speaker like the Google Nest Mini and control it using your voice. It also supports a range of color temperatures from a cool white to a warm white.
One of the features we love about the Baseus LED desk lamp is that it supports both wired and wireless modes. This means that not only can you use it at your desk, but you can move it around thanks to the built-in 2,200mAh battery, so you don’t need to worry about finding a power outlet to use it.
It also features support for auto-dimming which will adjust the brightness according to ambient lighting, and it also supports multiple color temperatures. Also, according to the company, it uses CRI95 energy-efficient LEDs which are said to help make colors more vivid and natural-looking.
If you’re looking for a desk lamp that can act as a statement piece on your desk, then the BenQ eReading LED desk lamp looks like the perfect answer. It features a rather unique-looking curve where the LED is housed, but there’s a reason behind this apart from just aesthetics.
This allows the LED to cover a wider area, so whether you’re working on your computer or reading a book at your desk, it will be able to detect the ambient light in the room and adjust itself accordingly. The best part is that there are optional accessories that are sold alongside the lamp, so if you want to turn it into a standing lamp or clamp it onto your desk, those are some of the options that will be available to you.
For those who might have a lot of money to spend, then you might want to take a look at the Dyson Lightcycle desk light. It looks simple in terms of design, but if that’s the aesthetic you’re going for, this could be it.
Unlike other desk lamps that have adjustable arms, one of the cool features of the Lightcycle is the stand which allows users to quickly adjust the height without having to deal with screws. Users can also extend the light away or towards them by pushing on it gently, and there are also built-in touch controls that lets users adjust the brightness at a touch.
There are also ambient motion sensors that can detect when you walk towards the lamp, in which it will turn on, and when you walk away, in which the lights will turn off. The sensors can also detect ambient lighting to help maintain the lights at a constant brightness.
Last but not least is the Dual Head LED desk lamp that’s part of the Amazon Basics lineup. There’s really nothing fancy about this desk lamp, but it does come with a dimmable sensor touch controller, built-in timer, and can toggle between three color modes: natural; white light; yellow light.
We suppose the main selling point here would be its price, which is the cheapest out of all the desk lamps we’ve listed above. If you’re looking for something that’s simple and gets the job done that won’t break the bank, then this could be it.
