Question How to hard wire Led lamp with no plug

I understand nothing about wiring but I'm wondering whether I could do it myself... or should I get an electrician? I've looked everywhere online for a tutorial but no luck. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

How is the light going to be used, ceiling fixture, lamp, or what?

It's going to be used on a bedside table.

Is there a cover that goes on the round base? Is it 120 volts?

Hi there ☺ No, there's no cover, it came like that. But if this thing gives me too many headaches I'm going to buy a USB powered one. Not worth it to pay an electrician. Bought it from China and it came with no instructions. Like the old saying "you get what you pay for".

That is a reading light for over the bed. It's designed to be installed on the wall over an electrical box.

All electrical connections need to be enclosed in a metal box which is not there.
The other problem is how would you get that to stand on a night table ? It's too top heavy.

I saw a picture of it standing on a night table so I thought it was portable, silly me. By your description I do need an electrician to install it. I will put it aside for now and I will buy a USB powered one. Thanks for taking your time to enlighten me about it 😊
