The Lightphoria 10,000 Lux Energy Light Lamp is a portable SAD light system that mimics real sunlight and does so in a compact and attractive package.
Pros: Adjustable intensity levels, uses energy efficient LEDs, designed to eliminate UV rays, rated for over 20 years
Cons: Too small and cheaper quality is noticeable
This is a very good light box for a cheap price, but you do get what you pay for. Sure, it does work well, but at times it seems as though it’s almost too bright. I’ve also read several complaints about how the LEDs don’t hold up. The biggest issue is that it’s just too small. If you want something very small then this is for you, but it definitely feels cheaply made.
It does have a built in timer setting which is really nice and the size makes it appropriate to place on a desk, but this is certainly what I would describe as a “starter” light therapy box just to try it out.
It does have 3 intensity settings. 5,000 lux, 8,000 lux and 10,000 lux so you can tailor the light intensity for how long you want to sit with it. The LEDs are energy efficient and it only uses 7.2 watts of power, but again there are some reports that the LEDs just aren’t holding up like they are supposed to with the Lightphoria 10,000.
It’s very inexpensive and can do the trick, but it’s also somewhat unreliable. I would recommend going with the #1 pick, the NatureBright, instead.

Great for when you don’t have room for something larger
Nice bright light but awfully small
Not Really Sure
It’s just okay
