This new 10000 Lux Daylight Lamp from Aogled can be used in SAD treatment therapy, as a general-purpose light about the house, as a photo or video light or indeed anywhere where precise light output is needed.
Seasonal Affective Disorder is a recognised and well-documented type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. With SAD, symptoms start in the autumn and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Treatment for SAD may include light therapy (phototherapy), medications and psychotherapy.
This is where this light comes in.
In the box are the lamp, UK power lead and a large and well-written User Guide. The lamp has three touch controls on the front panel for brightness, colour temperature and a timer. There is an adjustable kickstand on the back. Build quality is fine, everything seems well made and robust and with nothing looking likely to fail anytime soon.
The idea is that you sit in front of the lamp for set periods with the lamp set to either 6000k simulated daylight or at any setting you prefer for general use. The light can be switched from daylight, to normal or to warm white at 5 brightness levels and there is a built-in timer to control the operating time. The unit has a fully adjustable kickstand which slots into the body when not in use to adjust the positioning angle of the lamp. The well-sized and well-marked buttons make operating the unit a breeze. The large, well written and easy to read User Guide advises on the optimum distance to sit from the lamp and for operating times needed for most effective use.
The unit is mains powered and comes with a UK power supply with a hard-wired power cord somewhat shorter than I would have liked. It is a pity there is no built-in battery or remote control to enhance ease of use, but no matter, all the key features needed are found here.
If you find yourself depressed and down at heel during the winter months maybe this £39.99 lamp may be just what you need.
