I’m getting older sadly and that means my eyesight isn’t what it used to be so I need help from time to time and that’s where today’s product comes in, it’s a magnifying lamp from a company called Okoa. The lamp is is unique in that it can be a table lamp with a base and even a phone holder but it can come apart to let the magnifying lamp be attached to other surfaces thanks to the clamp on the base. It’s not bad overall, it would be great for hobbies and other types of things that require looking at details. Read on to learn more…

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:
The lamp comes packaged in a plain brown box and inside you’ll find the lamp parts wrapped in plastic and there’s more cardboard inside as packing material to protect the lamp.
Once you get everything unpacked you’ll find a user guide, cleaning cloth, magnifying lamp, base and USB cable for power.
The base is heavy and it has four rubber non-slip feet on the bottom. Towards the front of the base is a groove that can be used to hold your cellphone or whatever else. The center section is cutout and thinner than the rest of the base. The base is made of plastic but inside is a hunk of metal, I know this because I took it apart to find out what was rattling inside of it when I did the video unboxing. There are screws under the rubber feet.
The lamp itself is without the base is about 13 inches high when bent in a lamp like position.
The base of the lamp has the Okoa logo on it and a power symbol, the symbol is the power button actually, it’s touch sensitive and the lamp has three modes of low, medium and high.
The base is a spring clamp actually with rubber grips inside of it and on the back is the power port for the USB cable included to power the lamp. The clamp allows you to put the lamp where you need to and take it with you, just clamp it on the edge of a table where you’re working and it’s ready to go.
The bottom clamp on the lamp fits into the base to use it as a table lamp when you want or need to.
The USB cable plugs into the back of the lamp and there’s a red LED that lights up when there’s power going to it.
The lamp has 18 LEDs in it for light in a circular pattern on the bottom of the magnifying glass to light up your work surface and what you’re working on.
The magnifying glass has two parts to it, the larger section and a smaller more powerful section for finer detail work.
I like this lamp especially since it can be used with the clamp of the base, this makes it much more useful in my opinion.
The lights are more than bright enough to see what you’re working on and you can choose the brightness levels depending on your needs.
The magnifying glass works fine, it makes things bigger, not much else to say really. I should note that it’s not glass, it’s plastic, some people might care about that but for my uses it’s fine.
The lamp doesn’t use much power at all, you can connect to your computer’s USB port for power or even use a portable power bank.
I did run into an issue with the base section, it’s not exactly stable, it needs to be either wider or heavier as if you stretch the lamp far over it falls over. Eventually I think I’ll take the base apart and add more weight to it so to fix the problem.
The lamp does seem well made overall, it is plastic with a metal goose neck which is sturdy and stays in the position you put it in.
As far as price, I think it might be a bit overpriced for what it is and what you get really.
+Seems well made overall
+Desk or clamp mounting
+Three levels brightness
-Base could be heavier or sturdier
