[review] Baseus Monitor Lamp (a very short one)

Hello together,

a short 2min review of a Baseus Monitor Lamp:
i-wok Series
Source Screen Hanging Light
USB Asymmetric Light (Youth)

I got it for $20 from Aliexpress
https://aliexpress.com/item/4001220424079.html

That is a lamp to go on top off your monitor.
Uses USB-C for power. My version had no power brick, only an USB-A to USB-C cable.

The finish is nice and the beam is good for illuminating the desk and the keyboard.
I saw no PWM flickering.

But I had two issues with it:

  1. It doesn’t keep its setting when turned off. Wenn powered by my monitor it forgets it should start with warm light and dark brightness.
    Instead it is could light and full power.
    It is mentioned in the manual, but it wasn’t in the product description on the website.
    Would be nice to know before.
    When you find a USB power brick which is constantly on it remembers.
    Which is also useless when you use main switches for the PC place. Sad
  2. On low it sounds like a mosquito.
    That’s 10 inch from my head not acceptable.
    The sound is pretty hard to record with mobile devices. In the video you must crank up the volume to max.

I hope others have better luck with it, I am not sure if it is a defect. Baseus has normaly good stuff. It uses simply a too low PWM frequency, bad by design.
Again a lesson for me about: Don’t buy unreviewed lamps online.
