The Lamp That Crocheters Will Want!
Picture this with me: you are sitting in your favorite crochet spot this December, maybe crocheting a last minute gift or decoration for Christmas when, low and behold, 4:30pm happens and the sun has already set! That’s where the Brightech’s LightView Pro Rolling Base lamp comes in. Whether you are crocheting in an under lit room, working with black or dark yarn, or taking product photos - this lamp will come to your rescue on multiple occasions!
Who is 'Brightech’?
Brightech is a lighting company that makes affordable, functional AND modern LED lighting and decor. Their lamps require zero to minimal construction, so they are ready to use right out of the box!
They provided me with this Brightech’s LightView Pro Rolling Base lamp for free to review, but they seriously have so many beautiful decor lamps that I think I may have to do some Black Friday shopping for our new house too :)
Thanks to Brightech for supplying me with the lamp for this review. All opinions are my own.
Fast Shipping, Minimal Assembly for this Crafting Lamp
When my LightView Pro Rolling Base Lamp shipped, it only took two days to get to my house! I love fast shipping, especially around the holidays. *Note: for now this company only ships to US Addresses
As many of you know, we just moved. I have been unboxes, assembling new furniture, arranging and rearranging for the past two months! So I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box for this lamp and saw one little instruction card. The lamp came in two pieces (the rolling base and the neck/light) and to connect them all I had to do was use the provided hex key, bolt and washers to connect the two pieces. Easy peasy!
A Lamp with Options
I put the lamp together and I immediately used it as extra light while I was photographing my projects for Seven Days of Scarfie (7 free one skein or less patterns, 7 days, starts 11/23 - find all the info here!). This lamp is versatile in so many ways! It has two different hinges that allow for heigh adjustment, and I LOVE that I can move it up and down with my hand without having to loosen or tighten anything. I just move it to where I need it and it stays put!
It also has a two way adjustment at the top by the light. The light can be tipped up or down with a quick adjustment and it can also be tilted side to side.
And finally, the rolling base means that you can easily move this lamp around wherever you need it to be! The rolling base is weighted making it easy to move around (even on carpet) and hard to tip over. As many of you know, I have little kiddos in the house, so that part is important to me!
This lamp isn’t only versatile in its positioning and mobility, you’ve even got light options! See those two pictures below? How cool is that?!
The LightView Pro Rolling Base Lamp has integrated LEDs that can be dimmed and brightened easily with buttons right on the top of the light head. I didn’t edit the color tone of the pictures below…that’s just how different the light can be based on your preferences!
And there are so many benefits to using LED lights! This lamp uses 9 watt LED lights which means it uses very little electricity and won’t generate heat. Which, let’s be real, when you are snuggled up under your crochet projects - you don’t need any extra heat!
Brightech states that these LED lights will last 20 years, and their product is backed with a free 5-year Satisfaction Warranty! That mean’s if, in 5 years, something doesn’t hold up to your expectations - Brightech will work with you to make it right.
Light + Magnification = Working with Dark Yarn a Breeze!
Who are my lovers of black/dark grey out there? But how much to you dislike actually crocheting with it? I know I do! But with this light/175% magnification combo it makes it so much easier! I don’t use reading glasses (yet!) but I know this would be helpful for anyone who is a bit farsighted.
Perfect for Product Photography
The final way that I will be using my LightView Pro Rolling Base Lamp is as an extra light source for my photography and video filming. The fact that I can change the color of the light and move it easily where I want it to be will be a HUGE help. So if you sell patterns or products, you may want to seriously consider adding this to your photography set up! Who doesn’t love such a multi functional piece of equipment?!
