Who Owns a Desktop Lamp & how are they?
I’m curious as well. It is one of the prizes for the community event.
It is not one of the Prizes, but I’m interested in getting one.
A friend at work has one and they are pretty decent for the price point. Provides ample lighting for his desk, as well as dimming feature is a nice added feature.
Thanks for the feedback. I can’t decide which one I want.
I own the Lumos A2 in black. I’ve had it for around 3-4 months and I am mostly happy with it. If you have any specific questions I’d love to answer them.
How fast is the charging for iPhone and USB-C?
Mostly happy? What do you not like?
I don’t really use the USB port but I’ll test it right now with my iPhone 6 (not plus) using the default lightning cable.
My phone is at 65% and I will let it charge for 15 minutes, without using the phone at all, but not on airplane mode or anything, to see how much it changes. I’ll post the results in fifteen minutes.
These problems are pretty minor, and I would still recommend the lamp, but here goes:
- Sometimes the some of the buttons aren’t as responsive as I’d like. I might have to try two or three times before it changes the light mode or brightness.
- If I want to rotate the lamp (around its vertical axis), I have to hold it very close to the base, otherwise the base moves with the lamp.
Awesome appreciate the review, was looking at this lamp to tie some flies for fishing.
UPDATE: My phone started out at 65% and is now at 80% after charging with the lamp’s USB port for 15 minutes (timed with my iPhone timer).
The iPhone 6 has an 1810 mAh battery, so this roughly translates to 272 mAh charged in 15 minutes.
I have the more expensive Lumos E1 for about 7 months now since it came out. Got it due to the higher CRI (95 vs >80 for the others). Overall a positive experience. Max 3A for 2 USB ports so don’t expect super fast charging - one of my grip with all these USB charging ports on lamps.
Awesome feedback. Thank you for the stats. The iPhone 6 battery is so small.
Thats why I own the PowerCore+ 26800 & PowerPort+ 1 Quick Charge
Thanks for the feedback!
It always lasts me a full day, but I keep a powerbank in my bag just in case.
A powerbank is another word for a PowerCore/Portable Battery?
Have one. I like it. Damned if i can figure out the switch. It constantly eludes me. Every time I try to use it, I fight with the switch. Maybe mine is defective, but it rarely turns on or off with the first attempt. The light itself is nice, however.
How many dimming options are their?
I don’t but may be somewhat interested; seem pretty pricey though. Let me know your experiences please!
