The Zadro Portable Sunlight Machine works as an LED blue light lamp. It comes with many features for a customizable experience, but the plastic body makes the unit susceptible to damage.
This sun lamp pumps out 10,000 lux of light, which you can use with most light therapy programs to fight the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder and jetlag. Unlike larger units, the Zadro Sunlight Machine uses a combination of 35 LED lights to achieve these light levels. LED lights have several considerable benefits over traditional light bulbs. For instance, these smaller bulbs shine with greater intensity without generating any heat, and they last for years.
You can control the light intensity, too. This blue light lamp comes with on-board buttons that adjust intensity from 10 percent to 100 percent of 10,000 lux. When you press the buttons, the light intensity changes immediately. The LED lights prevent flickering, and they do not generate any buzzing noises. This quiet, heat-free performance lets you put the lamp next to other electronics without any concern of overheating, and you can use it at work without creating additional distractions.
This lamp is compact and portable. It measures 7.5 inches on the longest edge and comes with a handy kickstand to prop up the device. The sun lamp comes with a travel pouch to protect it during travel, but the unit’s plastic body may require additional care. The plastic body may warp if exposed to excessive heat or wide temperature variations.
Blue light lamps like the Portable Sunlight Machine create a unique spectrum of light that works with light therapy. It doesn’t create UV rays, so you do not need to worry about sunscreen/T or extra eye protection when using it. The lamp can be placed next to books and computer screens, where you can enjoy the experience from a periphery, and you can adjust intensity as needed.
This unit comes with an internal timer and clock. The unit is battery-powered and you can purchase an adapter for charging. The sun lamp’s front display uses backlighting that illuminates the information even when the lamp’s primary lights are off. All of these features add value to a desktop experience but may not help much when used for outdoor activities.
The Zadro Portable Sunlight Machine uses powerful blue LED lights that can help with light therapy. It includes several customizable features, so you can choose the light intensity that works most effectively for you, but the plastic case may not withstand rugged outdoor use.
