Swing arm lamps are very popular. It’s a great idea to install one on either side of your bed for reading. Instead of turning the main light fixture on and risk upsetting your spouse, you can just turn on the swing arm lamp and use that instead. 

There are different types of light bulbs available for swing arm lamps. They are available in Halogen, Incandescent, Fluorescent, as well as LED.


LED is the most popular bulb for good reason. It uses a fraction of the energy of an incandescent bulb and will probably last 20 years, so you don't have to replace it. LED is also a cool bulb and lacks the heat emission of an incandescent.

The color quality of LED has vastly improved as has the selection of the lamps using this bulb.

Below are some options for LED Swing Arm Lamps.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
