Looking for a lamp to help me stay productive at work?

Hello,



I have been struggling at work lately because I’ve been working very long hours and my desk lamp becomes so dim in the evening.

If anyone has any suggestions for a lamp that could stay bright for a long time to help improve my productivity and help me stay awake during my late nights, it would be much appreciated.

Re: desk lamp

I've never seen a lamp that's loosing brightness after being on some time. So I'd say that either something is wrong with yours (buy another then) or with your eyes (visit a doctor then)

One other option.

If the voltage delivered from the mains is not stable (but gets lower during the evening), then any lamp will shine less bright. Then just add a second lamp for twice as much light.

More explanation

Sorry I was not very clear in my explanation. I meant to say that the brightness of the lamp is alright during the day however when it gets darker the brightness is not very good.

This should be simple enough

You get a lamp that uses a 3-way bulb. They have these for LED lamps now. With these, you turn a switch to increase the intensity until it powers off. I'll recommend that you consider color temperature as being a factor as you'll want something that doesn't cause eye strain. A lamp that's in the 3-4 K range is probably what you'll want.

Poorly worded correction

A 3-way lamp has 4 positions. From the off position, you select from 3 brightness ranges and the final turn powers it off again. I'm sure you must have seen these.

what type of lamp

what type of bulb in the lamp. try replacing the bulb using one that says daylight led in the description. They tend to have white light while the others have a brownish tint.

About the lamp for late work

I think its not the light problem. you should need a rest for awhile after very long hour work.
Sometimes we fill that its ok for us but our stamina is dropped and we dont remind that.

Light

Very important is intensity of light. When light intensity is too large, then you mind work slower.
