Earlier this year, I got to review the Emerge LED Sanitizing Desk lamp from Ottlite (check it out HERE), which was one of the first lamps available in the sanitizing desk lamp line from Ottlite. It was a beautiful lamp and although I couldn’t find anything conclusive scientifically supporting it’s sanitizing functions, I thoroughly enjoyed the lamp overall.
The Achieve LED Sanitizing Lamp is one of the newest lamps available in the sanitizing lamp line from Ottline and it is a more streamlined, flexible light that, after a few weeks of use, feels like it could be a more pratical choice for most crafters over the Emerge LED Sanitizing Desk Lamp. I love the Emerge but the flexible neck of the Achieve really came in handy in multiple situations.
The Achieve is a light-weight lamp with a totally flexible neck so you can get the light exactly where you need it to be. I found this combination to be amazing for being able to take the light from room to room so I could have light wherever I was crocheting. The flexible neck helped me to focus the light where it was comfortable for me and most helpful. I’ve been crocheting with dark and black yarns a lot lately and this has made doing so a total breeze. I don’t know how I crocheted with black yarn before having an Ottlite. I know that this lamp is meant to be placed on a desk but as a crocheter, I rarely crochet at my desk so the portability of this light was a big deal for me.
The Achieve LED Sanitizing Lamp also has wireless AND wired charging which has also been helpful when using my phone while crocheting. I don’t have to worry about my phone losing its charge and all I have to bring with me is my lamp. Although this lamp lacks the adjustable shelf that I loved on the Ottlite Dualshade LED Floor Lamp (reviewed HERE) which I thought was amazing for using phones and tablets on, it’s lightweight portability and flexibility more than made up for it.
The lamp has 3 different brightness levels. In addition to the dimmable light, this Ottlite model has three different light settings: ClearSun only (regular light), Clear Sun & SpectraClean (regular light and the santizing light together) and SpectraClean only (which is just the sanitizing light). These modes are changed via the little touch sensor on the base and easily switched through. The SpectraClean mode turns on a purple light in the lamp which is supposed to sanitize your work space. Being able to change the brightness helps me make sure that I have a level of light that’s comfortable for my eyes as well illuminates my work accordingly. I can work under this light for hours without having headaches or eye pain.
Overall, I love the light and have thoroughly enjoyed using it when I crochet in the evenings and with dark yarns. If you’re struggling to work with dark yarns, I highly recommend checking out an Ottlite. Their lamps have a lot of great features for crafters and crocheters alike.
