Ikea JANSJÖ LED Lamps - and/or alternatives (?)

by linux_dan

There are multiple Things out there for R-Pi's that use an Ikea JANSJÖ LED lamp

The desk lamps used to cost $13 at Ikea -
Only $10 for white

The clamp version was $12 -
$10 for white or black

The gripe is that they are no longer available from Ikea, and other online retailers charge double (and more)
$30 +/- $3 --
$25 +/- $3 --Ö-Clamp-spotlight-white/dp/9178917174

All that is left are the JANSJÖ LED USB lamps for $6 ( priced at $5 in the same 2018 catalog )
These only throw 10 lumens vs 88 lumens from the other two

Also, I found out by printing out a Jansjo thing that the USB version is considerably SMALLER than the plug-in versions.

I am not going to waste time and energy asking Ikea to bring them back. Retailers never listen to the customers.

The apparent replacement seems to be NÄVLINGEÄVLINGE
Desk lamp for $17
Spring Clamp for $15
Bolt Clamp for $18

I just found a nearby eBay-er that had a clamp JANSJÖ for $22/free shipping.
I bought it so I can compare it to a NÄVLINGE and because it is one of the lowest prices for a plug-in JANSJÖ I have seen recently.

I will post more details as I get them.
Feel free to contribute to the discussion.

Suggestions OctoPi enclosure + PSU + Relay board + Touch Screen

by Watcher_


I ve used a commercial box to house my Pi along with a Mains 230V/12V-5V power supply and 4 relay board which connects to the printer (lack) enclosure.

I now need to also add a touch screen (5inch ?) to the setup which means a new box is needed whch will accommodate all the above plus the screen. The ribbon cable connection of the screen to the Pi also posses a challenge!

I ve been searching for ideas in other people solutions in Thingiverse but it seems that most designs with a screen do not accommodate relays and PSU.

Has anyone got any recommendations ?
