Jansjo lamp for computer monitor

Materials: Jansjo, drill, plus whatever monitor

Description: I love the Jansjo, but hate fumbling for the switch.

My ACER monitor has the base thick enough to hide the switch, so why not ?

The toggle switch is low voltage and very small; so I just drill a hole, run the wiring inside the base, mount the light and switch and re-solder it.

    Pretty cool! I just recently bought a little light with a USB plug in that works great.

    Ah, the need for a light is more for the keyboard and/or any paperwork you might be working off of. It’s not a need, but nice to have handy.
