Low heat desk Lamp.


I have finally found a desk lamp that I am happy with.

I am getting on in years and when doing fine work I need good light. I was recently fixing an electric piano that used surface mounted chips and was using a desk lamp based on a halogen globe when it started to melt a black plastic shroud that was attached to the board. 
On a browsing trip to Bunnings Hardware in 2006 I spied this new compact fluorescent and instantly knew my kitchen down light and desk lamp problems were over.

NELSON LAMPS AUSTRALIA
MELMR11ESS-11W
220-240V -50Hz
80ma PF=0.60
Non Dimmable

Screw and bayonet types available.




I had 3 down lights that had 75W globes that now have been replaced by these 11W  types.

The new globe mated with a $13 desk lamp makes a low heat reading light that will pay for itself with saved electricity.

This type of globe gives out very little heat and has no hot spots that could cause burns so may be useful in children's bed or desk lamps.

Update 2013

I  have replaced the compact fluorescent with a 3.6W LED globe.
