Koncept Technologies AR3100-C-SIL-DSK Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp, Cool White - Silver

Looking for ways to cut down on your electric bill? One easy solution is more energy-efficient lighting. Old lamps with incandescent bulbs are incredibly inefficient and heat up very hot, very quickly. This eats up electricity when you consider how long you typically keep a lamp on throughout the day. Koncept Technologies has your solution in the Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp with its award-winning 3-bar design. This sleek and modern desk lamp uses 28 cool white, energy-efficient LED bulbs that are also dimmable at the touch of a finger. A touchstrip at the head of this Gen 3 lamp allows the user to power on and off the Z-Bar Mini Desk Lamp and at the same time dim the lighting output to their desired brightness with a slide of the finger. In keeping with the energy-efficient theme, the Z-Bar Mini Desk Lamp consumes only 7 watts. To help put that into perspective, similar CFL lamps consume anywhere from 13 watts of energy and higher while incandescent bulbs are much higher. Along with being extremely energy-efficient, the Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp was made with the environment in mind. Koncept Technologies has created this eco-friendly LED lamp from 39% recycled materials by weight, its aluminum housing is fully recyclable, uses water-based paint and LEDs do not contain mercury.

The Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp uses a 3-bar design to give the user both maximum reach and flexibility when using it. Its LED head rotates in its socket, can sweep from side to side and point in any direction needed to provide light. The desk lamp has a 10 foot power cord that gives this desk lamp added flexibility to be used even if a power outlet isn’t in the immediate area. The frame of this lamp is constructed of aluminum and plastic and the LEDs used have a rated lifespan of 50,000 hours. The Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp is C-UL-US certified. Read more
