The best LED desk lamp

After consulting lighting and optometry experts, and spending 32 hours researching more than 40 desk lamps and testing 15, we think that the TaoTronics LED Eye-caring Table Lamp (TT-DL13) is the best lamp for most tasks that require focused light. It has the most brightness levels, color temperatures, and adjustability for customizing your lighting, and its light panel has the least glare.

The TaoTronics LED Eye-caring Desk Lamp (TT-DL13) has seven brightness levels, with the top level more than bright enough for typical desk tasks; yet no matter how you position the lamp, its frosted panel prevents glare—other, pricier lamps created annoying reflections or bright points of light. It also has one of the most intuitive control panels we’ve seen, and its slim, unassuming shape looks good on a desk or a nightstand.

The Fully Lumen LED Desk Lamp is virtually identical to our top pick—the only difference besides branding is that the Fully weighs a half pound more. But it’s more than double the price of our top pick when purchased on its own. It’s half off when bought with our pick for the best standing desk, so if you plan to buy both, we recommend buying the lamp from Fully for a one-stop shopping experience.
