Good little lamp
on 29 December 2013
This is a night-light about the size of a plastic coffee-cup, with a Philip's flickering candlelight bulb inside. It is one of a range of these lamps from Philip's. I've reviewed a few of these in the past couple of years. All of the lamps have worked very well.
The lamp is rechargeable, charged by plugging-in a USB power cord. The mains end of the lead is not included, so you'll need to plug it into a USB mains plug or a USB port on a computer. When this range was originally launched, the lamps were charged on a very handy induction charging base, which was wireless. Philip's has since ditched that wonderful idea, and replaced it with old-fashioned charging leads and sockets. Too bad. The early models were also waterproof, which meant they were perfect in the bathroom or outdoors, but these newer ones make no mention of that. Too bad again.
As with all lamps in this range, it is switched on and off by tipping in to one side. This makes it easy to use. The lamp is a bit plasticky but is safe for children to use (and drop), and for pets to knock over.
I've got quite a few of these Philip's candlelight lamps. They are really great items, give a pleasant flickering light, and last a very long time.
