8. Raniaco – Best Clip Reading Lamp
Only available on Amazon since July 19, 2016, but this item has become the new star with regards to clip reading lamps.
At first glance, the lamp looks fashionable. It comes as a beauty in white with a sleek ABS shell. The lamp is compact – it is designed to take as little space on your desk as possible.
On the lamp head are 12 LEDs with 3 levels of brightness: soft, bright, and strong, adjustable via a sensor. Holding the head is a graceful neck, which is flexible enough to bend into to an O, but is strong enough to never shake when you move it.
The best part of this lamp is its clip. It looks as sleek as an Macbook mouse, but once it gets hold of something, it will fasten it as tight as Warren Buffett holds onto his money.
But that’s not all about it. Despite not looking and weighing like a bulky cement flower pot, the base of this light can stand very firm on a surface. The secret? There’s a super anti-slip silicone pad underneath it. This offbeat design distinguishes it from all other portable clip lamps, which threaten to lose their balance every time you adjust the neck.
The only downside of this lamp, as I see it, is that its built-in battery takes 4 hours to charge. Then again, once it is full, the lamp can shine up to 12 hours at the lowest brightness level.
