Lamp does double duty as wireless charger

If you love gadgets that do more than one thing, you would be happy with the TaoTronics LED desk lamp with wireless charger.

The LED desk lamp design fits in with a modern desk.

The lamp has settings for five colors of light, from warm to cool (3,000K-6,500K), and seven brightness levels.

Its output is 410 lumens of light — pretty close to a 40-watt bulb.

The lamp rotates on the base and is adjustable in almost any direction. The round base houses a wireless phone charger that can fast-charge compatible Android phones at 10 watts.

For compatible iPhones, the charge rate is 5 watts, which is slower, but it still does a decent job. The smartphone fits nicely on the base.

And, if you don’t have a phone with wireless charging, the lamp has a USB port on the back to charge other devices.



Device holder is perfect for flying; fits in seat back pockets

Putting a full-sized laptop bag under the seat in front of you when you fly works fine until you need to get the computer or something else out during the flight.

Then you need to activate your contortionist skills.

The Airpocket takes care of that. It is designed to fit in the seat-back pocket for easy access. It is not designed to replace your whole laptop bag.

It is really only for the items you will need during your flight. And it is small.

A 13-inch MacBook Pro barely fits in the Airpocket.

But it is perfect for smaller devices, plus magazines, books or your travel documents.

It has a shoulder strap that is long enough to comfortably carry across your chest like a small messenger bag.

It can also slip over the extended handle of your roller bag for a quick and secure trip through the airport.

The Airpocket measures 12 by 10 by 2.5 inches, and it weighs 1 pound. It’s made of stretchy neoprene (like a wet suit).

This would be a great gift for a frequent flier.
