Table lamps used to have bulbs but then they went to fluorescent and everybody cheered. But I\u2019ve always found these types of lamps bulky to use, the fluorescent tubes too big and too easy to break (glass). Add in new reports that this kind of light can cause migraine headaches and you\u2019d think it would be better to go without. Change that. Make it better to go with an LED desk lamp instead. Make that better to go with the NuGreen Desk Lamp, period. For your smartphone, take a look at our review of the Philips S10.\r\nLet There Be Light\r\nNuGreen hits all the rings of the target: the aluminum chassis is lightweight and its base is small so it doesn\u2019t take up much room on a night table or wherever placed. That\u2019s partly due to not having to be super heavy to keep the flexible neck from tipping over. Why is that? There\u2019s no fluorescent tubes in the lamp\u2019s head \u2014 instead there are LEDs that, while lighter than the tubes, put out plenty of light for reading or whatever you might want to do. As in a total of 50 LEDs all working in concert color balanced to make for a natural daylight \u201clook\u201d to your brain. The flexible neck twists 120 degrees so it can be aimed in the direction that serves best (and to minimize glare). Plus, since the LEDs don\u2019t put out any heat, there\u2019s no fear of touching a hot surface there or anywhere on the lamp.\r\nDon\u2019t Burn Me, Bro\r\nNot getting hot is more important than you might think \u2014 because on the NuGreen there\u2019s no tab or switch for turning on the light. Instead, there\u2019s a red ring around the lamp\u2019s base that\u2019s always discretely lit. Touch this area anywhere beneath the ring and the LEDs start up pretty much instantly.\r\nInexpensive To Use\r\nThe NuGreen uses just 3.6 watts (hence: green) but even more to the point is the fact that the LEDs, which aren\u2019t replaceable, are rated for 45,000 hours of use. By my reckoning, use the NuGreen Desk Lamp 6 hours a day, every day, and you won\u2019t be worrying about getting a replacement for about 26 years. That's some staying power!\r\nLike the Sun But No UV\r\nMy wife took to the NuGreen almost from the moment she swapped it for the 60 watt reading lamp by her side of the bed. Her instant liking meant I could forget about my using the NuGreen at my computer desk. But I can always get another one from NewerTech since the $69.99 retail isn\u2019t a budget-breaker.
