How to Choose The Best Magnifying Task Lamp

Magnifying tasks lamps are an important tool for anyone who works in industrial assembly or inspection, including those in the electronic and pharmaceutical industries. With so many options out there, it can be hard to know how to find the best magnifying task lamp. Here are some important considerations to keep in mind when looking.

Adjustability
Some projects will require your magnifying task lamp to be extremely adjustable. If being able to easily adjust your lamp to different heights is important to you, check out the Daylight Company U25050 Magnificent LED Floor/Table Magnifying Lamp. With this lamp, all you need to do is remove a pole to convert it from a floor lamp to a table one. The goose-neck arm allows for even more flexibility, so you can always have the light at the necessary angle and height.

Magnification
