TaoTronics TT-DL16 Desk Lamp Review as a Fly Tying Light

 Review of TaoTronics TT-DL16 Desk Lamp

By Svend Diesel

I have had this light several years and absolutely love it.  I love it so much I think I have recommended it to every tyer to asks about a quality light that isn’t going to break the bank. It has a clean design, has multiple color modes and birghnesses, and also has USB ports for charging a phone or UV resign light.  I will go over some pros and cons.


  • Multiple light mode colors and brightness’s
  • It can rotate up and down and 360 degrees to the perfect angle and height
  • The head also rotates to focus on whats important and not glaring in your eyes
  • The light has a cover over it so it diffuses the glare making for great photos of your flies
  • It has lasted and traveled with me through several states and still works great
  • Folds up to minimize desk space when not in use


  • Cost, you can find a light with not as many features for less money
  • The base is light. If you rotate it and stretch the light over a distance sometimes it will tip over
  • If you set something on the touch pad, such as scissors or other tying tools, sometimes it will dim the light when not intended to.
  • You have to have power, not battery operated (for traveling to tying shows)
