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 beautiful 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

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. The design is also customizable as it can be swiveled and adjusted at various angles from the base directly or from the lamp itself.

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 this price, that’s to be expected.

Get the best nightstand charger
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 Metal Lamp.
Alternatively, if you want something more affordable with a classier look, Limelights’ lamp is another excellent choice. This lamp has a traditional look, but the most significant benefit is that there are more than 15 color options for the lampshade, providing the ability to match any room décor.
