Maplin 10,000 Lux Mini SAD Light

• 10,000 lux light to help combat seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
• Foldable tripod stand and screw holes for wall mounting

• Mini SAD light measuring 27cm x 20cm x 8cm (HxWxD)

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or ‘winter depression’ is linked to reduced exposure to sunlight, which may affect your production of melatonin, serotonin and disrupt your body’s functions and patterns. Melatonin is a hormone that makes you feel sleepy, and serotonin is a hormone that affects your mood, appetite and sleep. Lower serotonin levels are linked to feelings of depression. Your body also uses sunlight to time various important functions, such as waking up, so the lower light levels during winter may disrupt your body clock and lead to symptoms of SAD and general fatigue.

How can the light help combat the effects of SAD?
Using a SAD light for a few hours at a range of 15cm away will help increase your levels of serotonin and decrease your levels of melatonin, this in turn will brighten your mood and make you feel more awake – giving you more energy.

This mini SAD light has one fluorescent bulb that offers an impressive 8,000 hours of light at 10,000 lux – which can help you take the edge off SAD in just a few hours. It comes with a foldable tripod stand, and also has screw holes for wall mounting. Replacement fluorescent tubes are available (Order Code A88QZ).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this little lamp a couple of weeks ago as I tend to get a bit grumpy, down and very lethargic around this time of year. It was on a display at the front of the store and it shone so brightly I couldn't help but notice it! Lovely size, nice and light. It's just a simple on/off switch. Very bright white light. I've noticed a difference in my sleep and it's a bit easier to wake up in the mornings. I also feel a bit more cheerful after using it. Great product, great price! Thanks Maplin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I had this given to me by my auntie as she brought it for herself, she didn't know I suffered from SAD but gave it me as a Christmas present an brought herself another one.. I have been using this on an off when I can usually in the mornings or during the day for a hour or so when I'm stuck indoors. This light is great an glad I was given it as its a bit easier to get out of bed in the mornings when it's dark and gloomy outside an it makes me feel a bit more happier an positive! Would definitely recommend this item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant little thing! Even after just a couple of weeks it has had the most dramatic and noticeable effect. I still have the receipt on the front seat of my car, so I could take it back for a refund if I wanted to, but there is no way in the world I would. One of the best things I have ever bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I often feel very down in the winter months because of the lack of sunlight. This light has really helped me feel more positive and energised in the mornings and has made a big difference in my life. Definately recommend this lamp.
