The only thing we weren’t thrilled with about the SUNNAN lamp was the brightness of the light. As you can see from the pic above, it’s pretty dim but as advertised by Ikea, it is bright enough to read or write by. We tried it out and it wasn’t uncomfortable, but don’t let your mom see you reading in such low light! The included LED bulb (built-in) has a lifespan of approx. 20,000 hours.
Overall, the SUNNAN is a great buy at just $19.99 and makes a lovely gift with the added bonus that for every one you buy, you give one to a child who can use it to further their education.
