The Natural OLED desk light from Workrite Ergonomics is a desk lamp that features a single OLED lighting panel (made by LG Chem). Workrite says that the 320x110 mm OLED panel (N6BB40C) provides a rich, evenly diffused light, renders colors with amazing accuracy (94 CRI) and emits a neutral white light (3900K) that is glare free, UV free and blue light free. The OLED's lifetime is rated at 30,000 hours (LT70) at the lowest brightness setting, and the lamp produces 442 lumens at 13.7 W (32 lm/W) at the maximum brightness setting.

3900 K with CRI93 and no blue

3900 K with CRI93 and no blue light is simply miraculous.

Or one might think this company wants to fool their customers.

 

The panel seems to be from LGChem, seems to be a single panel, but the specs are odd.

1) LGChem is not offering panels at such low efficacy  (typical 55 lm/W or above). Maybe workrite has additional losses due to electrical and optical design? 

2) LGChem is not offering panels with 442 lm.

3) CRI from LGChem is typically 90, not 94

4) LGChem panels' emission color is typically 3000 K or 4000 K

 

Did LGChem launch new products or do they drive the panel off spec (e.g. higher current)?

 

Miraculous?

Just how miraculous can a $239 desk lamp be?

My two cents

1) Yes, LG Chem`s M6BB40C model offers 55lm/W efficacy, but this is at the panel level. Final efficacy is depending on how AC-DC & DC-DC converter is structured. 

 

2) According to LG Chem`s spec. sheet, it offers only 250lm; but, this is only the nominal value. You can achieve 442lm with higher current value. Of course, the lifetime of the panel will decrease accordingly. 

 

3) If you take a look at LG Chem`s spec. sheet, you will notice that voltage of 4000K version is lower than 3000K version. That means, 4000K version uses tandem structure of 2 stacks, and 3000K version uses 3 stacks. Hence, 4000K version has higher CRI level.

 

4) Yes, LG Chem offers 3000K and 4000K options, but, I guess, 100K difference is in allowable range of tolerance.  

 

Nice photometrics

To my eye it looks like it could topple over...

Especially when items like OLED at that desk height are apt to be

"Handled" by people. That tactile or proximity thing works both

for and against it. .. And it could be that it uses a magnetic base or

an integrated suction cup - but to my sensibilities... it's TIMBERRR
