Cons of the Product
Even though the product is advantageous, especially for those who want classic minimalist designs, it still has some cons as well. The CLAXY® Ecopower Industrial Barn Mini Metal Pendant Light operates with a 1.2 meter cord. Due to the short cord, you might need an extension wire to make it longer which is hassle sometimes, especially if you place the fixture inside a barn where things must be placed a bit higher to avoid getting tangled with the other items or animals below. The extension wire will also be required when you extend the height of the light fixture. If you want to let the light fixture hang lower than the 7.2 inch height limit, you can always just add an extended tubing. Just make sure that when you add an extended tubing all the wiring go through the tube.
The light fixture is designed for indoor use only, so if you want to use it outside, you might just find it a bit difficult to do. The light fixture also is only compatible with either an incandescent or an LED light.
Also, the light fixture has a minimalist design which caters to purpose better than the style. This may not be a big issue for those who want a simple light fixture and do not really bother with the minimal design. However, if you are into flamboyant designs, the fixture is not really for you.
The bulb is also sold separately. The light fixture costs around $109.99, originally, but is now sold at $43.99.
The CLAXY® Ecopower Industrial Barn Mini Metal Pendant Light has a minimal design which is great for those who are looking for functionality as well as a minimal but classic finish. However, for those who are into the glassy and flamboyant designs, you might find the light fixture a bit plain and pretty simple. Also the light fixture is UL Lister which makes it safe to use and is eco-friendly which accounts for its less electricity consumption. However, since it is designed for hanging, you might find it difficult when you want to attach it directly to you ceiling. Also the cord is only 1.2 meters long so if you want a longer cord, you will have to acquire an extension wire or infuse an extended cord on the original. The fixture only supports incandescent bulbs and LED light bulbs only, so if you want to use circular fluorescent bulbs or other bulbs that have sockets, the light fixture will not be compatible. The light bulbs to be used must also fit the 60 watts limit. Using any light bulb with higher wattage is not recommended. The same goes to those that carry more than a 110 volts, which is the limit of the fixture.
No matter how you buy your light fixture, just always remember to consider the proper lighting ergonomics first. This will help you decide which lighting fixture will fit your needs.
