Switch: The SINGLE lamp that meets ALL your lighting needs

Hello Switch www.theswitchlamp.com

Switch is THE single light source that can satisfy your own unique lighting needs. It is designed and engineered to provide ultimate usability and limitless application in your daily life. What makes Switch a unique product?

Limitless Application  

Switch features a unique alloy neck which can be molded into any shape to suit your needs, providing cable-free lighting with unparalleled flexibility. Need some “enlightenment” for a circuit board project? Need a light for your grill? Need to brighten up a dark basement? No problem! With some simple bending and twisting, Switch can cater to any occasion wherever and whenever you need light. After that, the belt can be straightened easily to return to your reading lamp; Switch is then ready to fulfill all your other lighting needs and to free your hands while you work or play in the light.

Exceptional Engineering 

Switch is carefully engineered and passionately crafted. A high capacity lithium ion battery, an energy-efficient LED lighting module, and an energy management chip are generously packed into an extraordinarily compact device with dimensions of merely 4.25’’X2.5’’X1.25’’. It can also comfortably fit into your pocket, clutch, backpack, etc. Weighing only 0.55 pounds, you can barely feel Switch while wearing it. Despite its elegance and compactness, Switch is extremely durable: it can support your lighting needs for 8-14 hours, depending on the brightness level selected. It won’t run out of battery until your iPhone does, and it can even charge your iPhone!

Marvelous Design

The logo and stylistic features of Switch were designed in France, by industrial designers Victor Marquant and Pengfei Li. They work seamlessly with the engineers to unify art with technology. The sport edition inspires an active life style with vivid coloring. And the premium edition exudes elegance and poise. Each Switch is simple and ingenious. It is created to integrate a generous industrial design with sophisticated electrical engineering.

Unbelievable Quality and Unbeatable Price 

Quality is always our first priority during the development of Switch. We have several members in the team with over twenty years of experience in manufacturing lighting devices. Multiple suppliers are examined to provide the best quality possible. We have also secured a dual cooperation with our supplier to ensure the best pricing.

May the Light be with You  

We are an international team working closely to bring Switch into reality. The idea came from our camping experiences in White Mountain. There are so many places and occasions where we need the right amount of lighting for security and maximal productivity. Yet, no product on the market can provide a good universal solution to this problem. We decided to make a lamp that will be so versatile that it could conveniently adapt to all lighting needs. Indoor or outdoor, large open area or tiny narrow space, work or play, Switch can free your hands (or head sometimes) to provide reliable, cable-free, easy-to-use lighting. We not only want to make Switch, we want to make it right. Our global effort traverses various time zones – at any time of the day, some of us are tirelessly perfecting Switch. Our members in Europe, China, and the States work closely together to tackle different parts of the project. Finally we made it, a device combining artistic beauty and engineering precision. Switch, THE ONE lamp that epitomizes our dreams and desires. It will fulfill all your lighting needs at anytime and anywhere, with style. We sincerely hope you will enjoy Switch. May the light be with you!

 Which Switch should you get?

We designed two versions of Switch.

If you are an outdoorsy person who loves to camp, the sport edition is perfect for you. It is dynamic, colorful, and sporty. It gets you covered in the wild. Sport edition comes in a black body with a variety of alloy belt colors to choose from.

If you are a classy person who appreciates finer designs, the premium edition is perfect for you. It is minimalistic, classy, and elegant. It satisfies all your indoor lighting needs. Premium edition comes in body textures of silver, gold or white, at your choice, and with a variety of alloy belt options.
