No matter if you work from home or are drowning in homework, a good desk lamp is a great way to tie your entire workspace together. Better yet, a desk lamp that can charge your phone adds a wonderful level of functionality that any workflow can benefit from. Without further ado, these are our favorite desk lamps that also serve as phone chargers.

Fast wireless charging

TaoTronics LED Desk Lamp

This first desk lamp from TaoTronics has a very modern design that’s super sleek and highly customizable. The LED light has five color modes and seven brightness levels that can be changed at any time using the touch controls at the base. There’s a wireless charger that supports up to 10W speeds and a USB port for 5V/1A charging.

The simple choice

Limelights Brushed Steel Lamp

Limelights’ lamp has a much more traditional design that’s simply timeless. The fabric lampshade is available in a variety of colors and the brushed steel base looks fantastic. You’ll only find one USB port for charging, but at just $ 20, that’s to be expected.

Past meets present

TaoTronics LED Bedside Lamp

Our next pick combines a homey aesthetic with wireless charging support and a dimmable light. Your phone rests on the base of the lamp for up to 10W charging speeds, there’s a built-in USB port for 5V/1A wired charging, and the light can be dimmed using the control knob.

Going back to lamps with more quirky designs, Gerintech’s lamp is all about being as functional as can be. This thing has a dimmable LED light, alarm clock, USB port for 5V/2A wired charging, pen/pencil storage, temperature reader, and the front LCD display even shows the current date.

So classy

Aooshine Table Lamp

Don’t need all of those bells and whistles and just want a lamp that looks darn good? Enter Aooshine’s lamp. The wooden base looks downright gorgeous, and when paired with the fabric shade, results in a seriously good-looking lamp.

Do the twist

Omnilight LED Desk Lamp

Our last pick is the Omnilight desk lamp. The unique gooseneck design allows the light to be folded and bent in a virtually endless number of ways, while the light itself shines brighter and covers more surface area compared to competing options. As for charging, there’s one USB port.

$ 34 at Amazon

We’ve previously been impressed with TaoTronics’ affordable Bluetooth headphones, so if you want to pick up something you know you can rely on for a long time to come, you can’t go wrong with the company’s Desk Lamp or Bedside Lamp. Alternatively, if you want something more affordable with a classier look, Limelights’ lamp is another great choice.
