Technical information: Light source: 6 W LED Light source included Colour temperature: 2700 K CRI: : > 90 Lumen: 550 Lumen/ W: 88 LED lifetime: 50,000 h Material: ￼w152 Busby is made of forged and milled aluminium. Anodised finish. Charge 3 USB devices at the fastest rate: Each USB socket provides 3 amps, allowing a 15W of power output per socket and enough power to charge USB-charged laptops. Power management and device detection: Detects what power is required for any device and adjusts to ensure its fastest charge. Programmable micro switch: Click for on/off; hold down button to set brightness level; release for on/off brightness setting. Ambient or directable illumination with warm white LED: Two versions are available – an ambient lamp and a directable lamp. The light technology is based on highly energy-efficient, high quality, LED solution that gives a warm white light. 360 degrees rotation: The lamps can be rotated 360o for glare control and light direction.
For a long time, lamps have been an electrical experience – the light being evidence of electrical current passed through a filament. But now modern lighting has become unrecognisable, no longer the subject of electricity, but of electronics. Printed circuit boards, micro-chips, diodes and interfaces are now the staple ingredi- ents, giving us greater control, conserving energy and providing longer lifespans. This transformation is a chance to establish new possibilities for the meeting point between light and electronics. "This is not a story about gadgetry (regardless of technical achievements), but rather an affirmation about how we live – that wherever light is supplied, power is often also required to charge our burgeoning electronic devices. w152 Busby is an electronic lamp that provides intelligent universal power from three USB outlets, detecting charging requirements and managing them at their fastest rate, however many variable devices are plugged in. It provides up to 3 amps, allowing 15W power per slot (9 amps, 45W in total) – enough to charge the latest generation of laptop computers. It can be supplied either as a freestanding or wall-mountable lamp, or built-in to a surface. The w152 Busby illuminates and powers the office, the workshop, the library, the living room and the bedside table."
