A year or so I wrote up a review of a full-spectrum lamp. Seeing as it’s the end of September already, I thought it was the perfect time to reintroduce the topic of the winter blahs… hey, someone had to broach the topic, right?
The Verilux Happylight Liberty Energy Lamp is a great price and its size is perfect. Plus, you can adjust the angle of the unit, it’s easily mounted on the wall, or can be used on the desk- or countertop. The original one I had test driven last year, The Deluxe , offered 10,000 lux.
It was also, quite frankly, enourmous. When I went to buy one for myself, I chose the two pack of 2500 lux lamps. This was for cost and size reasons. Now with the twin pack, you’re supposed to set them up on either side of you, but instead, I opted to have them at two different locations within my home.
I’ve since learned, this isn’t optimal usage. It hardly made a bit of difference,in fact, it just took me a while to realize it. The Liberty Lamp is like a flat-screen version of the small ones I have, only a little taller. It’s certainly not the behemoth that the Deluxe one was, though it too offers a whopping 10,000 lux. Even better, it comes with a choice of lenses–the “Comfort Lens” and the “High Energy Lens”, along with two brightness settings so you can truly customize your usage.
The Liberty is also a great deal. For just under $100, you’ve got summer sunshine, your way, all winter long and it won’t take up the whole desk. That’s better (and cheaper) than a trip to Miami for February vacation. For more information on the benefits of light therapy read my original review at Prime Parents Club.
