At full brightness the timer is around 30 minutes before it goes off.
As well as a SAD lamp it can be used as an alarm and wake up light, setting it up on your bedside table allows it to slowly light up over a period of time till full brightness when you wish to be awoken. The sunrise feature can be set for 15 or 30 minutes and will begin this time period before you want to be awake, so if you set your alarm for 7am and on the 30minute sunrise, at 6.30am the light shall slowly begin to light up, at nearly 7am it will be full brightness allowing you to slow awake from your sleep.
