Hi this is my first post on the what hifi forum : ) hello everyone

Anyone aware of a good battery powered turntable lamp. I’ve seen the Nessie Audiolighting LED Lamp but there doesn’t seem to be anything else out there?

Many thanks

Any particular reason it has to be battery powered?
The Nessie is designed to work on a record cleaning machine

Hi
I tried an LED Ikea one that I thought would be great. But it introduced a buzzing through the turntable. As it needs to be quite close to the turntable. So I just thought instead of trying out other types of lights a battery one might be the way to go. It would only be used for putting records on at night. Looks like their isn’t much choice.

(I installed a ceiling light specifically above my turntable).

The Nessie it says comes with double sided adhesive pads that attach to its magnet thing, so it can be used as a turntable lamp. Not just for use with the record cleaning machines.

Will it not sit beside rather than on?
Its specifications would indicate it isn’t tall enough. I suppose maybe it could magnetically attached to a little square of metal with a felt base?

ummm that’s got me thinking now……..

Maybe you've already seen these, some are 'rechargeable':

I bought a couple of black ones of these, suited my purpose with a bit of adaption (I hacked off the USB connector) ....as long as they get 5v DC from somewhere:
...loads of this type of thing. Easily adapted to suit:
