Product Description

Product Description

This simple to use portable light box has two brightness levels and uses blue spectrum light tubes to simulate natural daylight. Brings near daylight inside whilst you work or relax to help combat those winter blues.

Small and portable for use anywhere a mains plug is available. Much more convenient than large tube units and better than LED versions as it does not create "spotting" in the eyes.

Supplied with Digital Switching Power Supply for worldwide use.

Box Contains

  • 1 x Light Pod
  • 1 x Digital Switching Power Supply

    3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and happy introduction to SAD lighting 21 Oct 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Even if you're not struck down by some of the worst symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), you're probably just like everyone else in getting a bit run down and depressed as the nights draw in and the hours of daylight seem to almost disappear.

    There's little more depressing than getting up in the dark and coming home in the dark! SAD lights are nothing new, specially designed high-pressure lights which attempt to replicate the benefits of bright sunlight and hopefully spark up your dark day a little.

    Generally however, SAD lights have been so expensive, the effect on your bank balance is likely to undo any good work the light does itself.

    This product gets round that problem and offers an affordable and entry level option to try SAD lighting and see if it has a benefit for you - without breaking the bank.

    The unit's low cost is evident in its design and construction - this is budget stuff. And it's size also reflects its cheapness. But this is designed really for a quick top up of light, perhaps in the morning before work, or while you work at your computer, rather than being professional light therapy. With little more to do than sit and shine however, it's cheaper design and lack of robustness is going to be of little concern.

    It's designed so it can be stood on a desk or shelf, or hand held and comes with an adjustable mode to allow you to only use one side of the unit at a time, or with a different frequency.

    Make sure you read the instructions, these lights are not intended for continuous use and users should only expose themselves to the light for controlled periods of time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny and more 8 Dec 2010
    I was looking for my first SAD lamp, as I'm new to Scotland and the sun setting at 3:30pm had me very depressed. It may sound cliche, but this little guy changed my life! I use it for half an hour in the morning, and then if I need to for 20-30 minutes in the afternoon, and I truly feel like myself again. After a lifetime of suffering from the winterblues, I finally feel free from it! I didn't want to spend too much money, and it's actually nice that this smaller lamp is portable so I can take it from room to room. It's small and uncomplicated and does the job very well. No need to spend more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An Affordable SAD Light that WORKS! 8 Nov 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Apparently 1 in 3 people suffer some form of Seasonal Affective Disorder or mild depression when the winter sets in and you're waking up and going to work, then coming home in the darkness. The lack of sunlight can really affect our mood and as the dark nights set in I recognised a tired, listless, low feeling I'd had the previous year, and I'd wondered then, do I have SAD? I never wanted to take pills for it, but I decided to try light therapy. I was expecting to pay £50+ at the very least and I was amazed to find the Lifemax Light Pod for under £30 and free delivery. It came the next day (Prime) and I love it. It's about the size of an A3 notebook and comes with a wall plug and instructions. It's so light and compact I can use it anywhere in the house, even wall mount it. After 2 days of use I already feel revitalised, less tired at night and with more 'get up and go'. It's not a miracle cure but it certainly helps and I've noticed a very defined difference.

    If you are thinking of trying one of these then go for it, it's a briliantly affordable SAD light which works well and I only wish I'd bought one years ago. Just 20 - 30 minutes a day whilst I'm having my morning cuppa sets me up for the day. I highly recommend this light :)

    5.0 out of 5 stars so far so good 5 Dec 2011

    I have had my light box for a month now and think i can feel a difference. I use it for an hour every day when i get to work to kick start my day. I don't feel as lethargic or emotional as usual. I wouldn't say my SAD is completely cured but it is making a difference. For the quality of this product and the effectiveness i would definitely recommend to all.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Energy Boost 2 Nov 2007
    The light box has been very useful I have it on next to my computer at work, putting it on in the morning it helps me to get going and during these winter months has stopped me feeling so sleepy in the afternoon. Even my colleagues next to me have noticed a difference.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Box of Delight 21 Feb 2011
    Although my home-office has a huge window, the room itself is sheltered by other buildings in the area and therefore doesn't get much natural light. The result is that it can be quite a gloomy place in which to work, especially in the winter months when it gets dark by around 3pm. To solve the problem, I decided to buy a full-spectrum natural desk light, which replicates the effects of outdoor light, and is supposed to have a beneficial effect on all that bask in its glory! These natural light products are suitable for people with SAD (Seasonal Affectation Disorder), and if you decide to purchase the product as a treatment device, you should use it for 20 - 45 minutes each day, preferably in the morning.

    The price of sunlight...

    Many of these natural lamps are really expensive - some costing hundreds and hundreds of pounds. I personally didn't want to spend too much, so I opted for the budget 'Lifemax Light Pod' which can be purchased for around £50. The Pod is a free standing device which can sit on your desk and illuminate your work area with some gloom-busting light. The product is technically classed as a 'light box' rather than a lamp, and therefore is more ambient and subtle in its output than a high powered lightbulb. The unit has an adjustable plastic stand at its rear which can be used to change the angle of the beam - I personally have it at its 'tallest' setting, meaning the flow of light is directed at the desk itself (and the mass of strewn papers which are currently on it!). This way my working area is illuminated, and it complements the ceiling light nicely.

    Measuring around twenty centimeters across by twelve centimeters in height, the Light Pod is made out of plastic, but feels well constructed and quite solid.
