Better illuminated. Logitech's Litra Glow is an LED streaming light that is suitable for use on a laptop or tablet, can also be used on the go thanks to its USB power supply, and is also compatible with the G Hub. Our review clarifies for whom the lamp is worthwhile.

The Logitech Litra Glow is an LED lamp that wants to be recommended as a streaming or video conferencing aid due to its compact design, natural light presentation, and sophisticated diffusion. The lamp is made entirely of a thin plastic, which doesn't give a premium feel, but the matte finish makes it less prone to dirt and has a pleasant feel. In addition, the Litra Glow is surprisingly lightweight.

The included stand is primarily intended for hanging the Litra Glow on monitors or laptop screens and can be flexibly adjusted in height, tilted and rotated so that alignment is quite easy. Alternatively, the monitor stand can also be used lying on tables. The lamp has a ¼-inch thread, which is why it can be screwed onto most tripods without any problems; with a corresponding attachment, it could even be used as an auxiliary light for a camera.

On the back is an on/off switch as well as a five-stage control element for brightness and color temperature. If you use the Litra Glow on a computer with Mac OS or Windows, you can also install the Logitech G Hub, which allows you to adjust both settings continuously.

The power is supplied via USB-C. It does not matter whether the power source is a computer, power adapter, tablet, smartphone or a power bank; all variants worked smoothly in the test. The streaming lamp has a power consumption of slightly more than 7 watts at maximum brightness. In the test, it shone at full power for almost two hours (118 min) on a Tizi Flask (4,000 mAh, 14.8 Wh).

The Logitech Litra Glow aims to provide a "broadly diffused, glare-free light without sharp edges, harsh shadows, hotspots or dropouts" with its frameless diffuser (source: product page). In fact, despite its small size, it succeeds quite well. However, it has to be positioned as centrally as possible in front of the user, otherwise shadows and edges can occur.

At the highest brightness level, the lamp reaches 250 lumens, which doesn't sound that bright at all, but it's dazzling at first. However, the eyes get used to it quite quickly and we did not perceive the brightness as annoying. Logitech has also had the Litra Glow tested by TrueSoft, which certifies that it has "no photobiological LED hazard". We put it to the test and checked the light with the camera, and we could not detect any LED flickering.

The illumination quality is pleasing and provides a visible improvement of the image, where especially the image noise is reduced and the homogeneity of the illumination is improved. We used a Logitech BRIO Ultra HD Pro Business as webcam for the comparison recordings.

All in all, the Logitech Litra Glow leaves a good impression and offers a fair price-performance ratio. If you move around a lot in front of the camera and want to avoid shadows, you might want to use a second Litra Glow or simply a larger light source. For most users, however, the LED lamp will be a space-saving addition to their own workspace or on the go.

The Logitech Litra Glow can be purchased directly from the manufacturer's store at https://www.logitech.com/de-de/products/lighting/litra-glow.946-000002.html for 69 Euros (~$77) and will certainly find its way onto the shelves of relevant retailers in the coming weeks.
