The TaoTronics TT-DL01 is an LED desk lamp that has a number of options to suit your mood. This has been designed as a desk lamp and is surprisingly tall, however this does mean it’s easy to position above documents/books and it doesn’t getting in your way. You need to assemble the TaoTronics TT-DL01, which is really easy to do as it’s just a matter of attaching the main arm to the base, plug it in and it’s ready to go.
As the TaoTronics TT-DL01 will be taking up a plug socket the makers have added USB port at the side which allows you to plug your phone in for charging (or other USB device like an MP3 player), very handy.
The lamp is made of plastic and I expect the design will split onion. I like it, others that I’ve shown it to were not so keen. One thing we did agree on is that it doesn’t look like a premium lamp that lives up to the £69.99 (at the time of review) asking price.
A word of warning about switching it on for the first time: whatever you do, don’t look at the LEDs directly when you turn it on, this thing is BRIGHT!
The main arm folds out allow you to position the lamp as required. At the bottom of the lamp are some touch controls and they allow you to change the light type between the following modes:
This might sound like a gimmick, but the light quality really does change depending on the mode chosen. In addition to changing the light type each mode can have the brightness adjusted, making this a very versatile lamp. Next to the on/off button is a sleep button, which, when pressed, puts the lamp into a timed shutoff mode which automatically turns off the light after 60 minutes, perfect if you fall asleep reading in bed.
This is the first plug in LED lamp I’ve used and it really is a good desk lamp, with the different modes changing the type of light produced for whatever mood you happen to be in. You are paying a premium for a lamp which looks very plastic, being LED you could expect the energy saving aspect should mean this pays for itself in time. However, I do love the touch controls, they’re like something out of a sci-fi show, and the sleep timer function is a nice touch.
