Checked out the power draw on it. THere is an adaptor that plugs into the base and the specs are:

12v DC
500mah

So very little power draw.

Thanks, Elmie for checking that out. I guess that only thing left to wonder about is the degree of AC flicker that might be present with the light. That would depend, of course, on the quality of the AC power supply. I'm not going to volunteer to be the guinea pig, though.

(I used to have an old fluorescent desk lamp one time with intolerable AC flicker - I dumped it in favor of a warmer, flicker-free incandescent.)

As far as I can tell there is no flicker at all. The quality of the light seems to be pretty good. It has a touch sensative on/off switch. Kinda neat.
