These are so impressive and classy looking. Used led daylight bulbs for brightest result. They are plenty bright for reading in bed but not bright enough to be overbearing.
The lamp shade is loosing its stickiness and won't stay up. Not sure why that's how long it lasted.
Usb ports keep malfunctioning and not able to provide power. The phone rapidly fluctuates between charging and not charging. For example plugging two phones into the lamp causes each to drop in and out of charging continuously.
The shades are just glued to the wire skeleton. The heat from even an led bulb is enough to warm this glue and the lamp just falls apart.
Also replaced the big bulky metal ball for the pull string.
Now all i can do is turn it on and off at the option it was left on when the remote stopped working.
