On the one hand, it’s just a simple LED light to help you read all of your Kindle books and to accent your room. It has three adjustable brightness levels and comes in a compact size for small spaces. You can use it in your bedroom, living room, workspace or any room that needs a chic, space-saving reading light. Pretty standard stuff, right?
But unlike a lot of bedside lamps, this one also doubles as a wireless phone charger. So, if you’d rather not deal with messy extension cords or short phone chargers, this may be the device for you. (Not to mention, it’s 33% off.)
Blonbar Bedside LED Qi Lamp, $39.99 (Orig. $59.99)
To use the light, simply touch the side of the lamp until you get the brightness you want. To access the charger, place your smartphone in the middle of the dock. When your battery is sufficiently charged, a green light will appear, and you’re good to go.
But keep in mind, the device is only compatible with select iPhones and Androids, as well as any Qi wireless-charging-enabled devices.
Now, apart from the lamp’s brightness levels, shoppers also noted how well the device actually charged their phones.
“I was skeptical when my wife told me she bought this for me,” one five-star reviewer wrote. “However, after a couple of weeks, now I realize this addition to my bedside table is the best present she could have bought! The three-level light is perfect, and the phone charger works faster than my Apple iPhone charger!”
Another shopper echoed this sentiment but cautioned about potential hangups in replacing the lamp’s bulb.
“Cool techie light which works as promised and charges phone well,” one five-star reviewer wrote. “Definitely think [the lamp has] more night light brightness than bedside lamp for reading or truly lighting the room. And I assume that [once] it burns out, it’s done, since there’s no way I can see to replace a bulb or fluorescent strip.”
So, whether you’re looking to add a cozy light to your room or free up your wall outlet, this bedside lamp is one to put on your radar.
