When it comes to illuminating your bedside, the days of candlelight and oil-powered lanterns are long gone. Today’s nightstand lamps feature all sorts of unexpected extras, like USB ports for recharging your mobile devices and multicolored lights that can project a starry sky across the bedroom. Here are four great nightstand lamps we recommend.
AUKEY Nightstand Lamp
Why is this our editor’s pick? Because it’s the fun pick. The lamp can display the whole color spectrum – or just pause it on your favorite hue. The lamp has three modes – soft glow, ambient warmth and bright light – that are activated by tapping on the base.
ZEEFO USB Table Lamp
I’m seriously considering ditching my two perfectly good nightstand lamps at home and replacing them with this set from ZEEFO. Why? Because I want to recharge my cell phone and tablet each night but still keep them within arm’s reach. Please note that the two AC outlets only accept max 1500 watt appliances so keep that in mind when you decide which products to plug in there.
3-Way Touch Control Dimmable Table Lamp
SHINE HAI’s lamp has many of the same features as its competitors, but adds in a dimmable control with four settings. Also, SHINE HAI boasts that it has tested more than 20 different bulbs before deciding an Edison LED bulb works best. To make their point, they include the energy-saving bulb with the lamp.
This Star Projector lamp by Hontry features four colored lights that project a starry scene onto the bedroom walls and ceiling. There’s also a timer on the lamp so you can set it to turn off once the kiddos are asleep.
