The Alaska Northern Lights NorthStar 10,000 Sun Lamp creates a broad spectrum of light that can be used for daily treatment of seasonal affective disorder and jetlag. The unit comes with a convenient handle, so you can carry it anywhere you need to go.
The NorthStar sun lamp generates 10,000 lux of broad spectrum light without damaging UV rays. This lamp’s power comes from two internal bulbs. The lamp gives off light temperatures of 4,100 kelvin, which mimics the appearance of natural sunlight.
The bulbs do not flicker during light therapy sessions. Their placement in the frame prevents visual distractions, so you can use the NorthStar for everyday activities without focusing on the source of light. The cover uses an anti-reflective shield that protects against glare, too. This negates hot spots that sometimes appear on light lamps and ensures even distribution of light.
The sun lamp measures 24 inches wide and 12 inches high, which creates a wide lighting surface. This unit does not require that you face it directly. Instead, you can set it off to the side while you read a book or surf the internet. The sunlight box does not need much surface space on a desk or shelf. It measures 6 inches deep. The weight, however, may limit some uses. This sun lamp weighs 10 pounds, which may be too heavy for some applications.
The handle adds a level of portability to this device. It rests on the top of the long surface, and you can carry the sun lamp the same way you would a briefcase. This handle does not limit the way you can arrange the device. The sun lamp comes with rubber feet on both sides and also includes wall installation options.
This light therapy lamp requires a corded connection, which limits portability and doesn’t allow you to use it without a power connection. Aside from the weight and power cord, the device allows for versatile indoor usage.
The Alaska Northern Lights NorthStar 10,000 Sun Lamp offers powerful light levels and a convenient design. You can carry it with the attached handle and set it up with a variety of installation options.
