This is a nice looking gooseneck-style desk lamp that uses 8 5mm white LEDs as its light source. It casts a pure, somewhat cool white light on your work surface, not a yellow color you might expect out of an incandescent desk lamp

This desk lamp is powered by three AAA cells, so you can use it in places where you don't have an AC outlet available.

Product was DOA (dead on arrival); therefore, that dreadful "" will be used, and complete testing cannot take place.

(Same day update): The product itself was not defective; the positive (+) nipple of one of the AAA cells was slightly smashed in.
Changing out all of the batteries resulted in correct operation.

Firmly press the button on the top of the base until it clicks and then release it to turn the desk lamp on.
Do the same thing to turn the desk lamp off.

Yes, it really IS as easy as that!

To change the batteries, turn the unit upside down, remove the battery door, and set it aside.

If necessary, remove and dispose of or recycle the three used up old AAA cells from the battery compartment.

Insert three new AAA cells, orienting them so that the flat-end (-) negative of each cell faces a spring for it in each chamber.

Finally, place the battery door back on.
Aren't you glad you didn't flush away tha...o wait, I didn't advise throwing that battery door in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl and flushing it away now, did I?

This is a desk lamp meant to be used as a household lamp in a dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused; so I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toliet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of an outdoor patio, use a small ball peen hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights (that were born to be flashlights and nothing but flashlights) may have inflicted upon them.

If it fell in water and you suspect it got flooded, disassemble it as you would for a battery change, dump out the water if necessary, and set the parts in a warm dry place for a couple of days or so just to be sure it's completely dry inside before you reassemble and use it again.

If it fell into seawater, got thrown into a glass of milk, if it fell in a root beer float, if somebody squirted a Massengill brand post-menstrual disposable douche or a Fleet brand disposable enema at it (and hit it with the douche or the enema), or if somebody or something got "pist off" at it and subsequently "pyst" on it, rinse all the parts out with fresh water before setting them out to dry. You don't want your Flexible LED Desk Lamp to smell like seaweed, sour milk, flowers, fresh butts, or rotten piss when you go to use it next. Besides, salt (from seawater, disposable douches, disposable enemas, or uranation), lactic acid (from moo juice), glycerol (from antifreeze), or sugar (from root beer & ice cream) can't be very good for the insides.

Test unit was purchased on the PulseTV website on 02-11-10, and was received on the afternoon of 02-16-10.

Product was made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.

Product was DOA (dead on arrival); therefore, that dreadful "" icon will be appended to its listings until a replacement can be obtained. I connected its LEDs to my laboratory power supply unit to obtain the beam photograph and perform spectroscopy of it.

UPDATE: 02-18-10
The product itself was not defective; the positive (+) nipple of one of the AAA cells was slightly smashed in -- changing out all of the batteries resulted in correct operation.

Portable, freestanding light source
Gooseneck design allows for easily directing (aiming) the light just about anywhere
Uses batteries that are common and relatively inexpen$ive
The price is right (O WAIT!!! Isn't that a TV game show?)

Construction feels a bit flimsy
