Ever need a light source for a specific reason? A task lamp? If you did, you likely turned to the use of a clamp-on lamp
-- convenient, lightweight, and you can focus it exactly as you like.
We like clamp-on lamps
like this one -- the Lite Source Seeker Clamp-On Reading Lamp
. It's solid, all-metal construction with an inline switch and a 35 watt halogen bulb for extended life. It is highly portable and very directional, what with the flexible goosen
Or, you might prefer the smaller version, the Mini Clamp-On Reading Lamp
. It features the same specs, but has no elongated gooseneck.
Ott-lite offers their version of a clamp-on lamp
, the Task Light
. It has a 13 watt tube lamp, giving you about 10,000 hours of life; a strong clamp for attachment to tables, desks, shelves, or counter tops. Designed to approximate natural outdoor light, it is perfectly suited for close-in work by engineers, hobbyists, or artists.
If you work with really small stuff -- models, for example -- or are vision-impaired, you might appreciate this Artisan Clamp-On Swing Arm Magnifying Desk Light
. It magnifies objects almost 2X and is highly maneuverable, given its double swing arm design. It uses a 60 watt bulb for illumination.
Another Lite Source product -- the Baby Mag-Lite Compact Fluorescent Lamp
. Ideal for close-up work, such as sewing, beading, or assembly operations, the lamp has a life of some 3000 hours.
The Electrix Architect's Clamp-On Lamp
has a spring-loaded suspension arm with a reach of nearly 4 feet. The metal shade features an internal reflector to boost the illumination of the (not included) 100 watt incandescent bulb it uses; the clamp base is highly adjustable. A five year warranty accompanies this engineering lamp.
