Thanks to overhead lighting, I have not owned a desk lamp in quite some time, but Satechi may just change that. After all, my desk no longer contains just a desktop computer — there are also other devices, including multiple tablets and mobile phones. Those present a problem for charging. While the USB hub has enough ports to handle them all, it is slower than a wall connector.
Now Satechi steps in to provide dual functionality — some added light, as well as USB charging with the power of a wall outlet. The light is a flexible model, so it can be aimed where needed, and a USB port is hidden on the back.
Other features are also included, according to Satechi. “The user-friendly, touch-sensitive lamp has controls for turning on and adjusting brightness with the touch of a button. Additionally, the environmentally-friendly lamp only consumes 8 watts of power, up to 80% less than a typical fluorescent light”.
The lamp is available now from Satechi. It retails for $59.99, and you can check it out in the video below.
