A desk lamp is a key to a well-lit desk or home office space. These little devices help reduce eye strains and also enhances the looks of your desk. Over the last few years, the humble desk lamps have seen a few good upgrades. Gone are the energy-hogging incandescent lamps. Now, desk lamps come with LED lights and touch-control settings. Moreover, you can customize the brightness and angle of the light to your liking. Cool, right?
So, if you are looking to add a modern touch to your home office, here are some cool LED desk lamps for your desk. But first,
- Manage your cables better with these cable management ideas and accessories
- Clear the clutter on your desk with these heavy-duty monitor mounts
1. AUKEY TABLE LAMP
It’s not a smart lamp, meaning there is no companion app to help you change the colors. Instead, you’ll need to long tap on the base. And two consecutive taps will do the trick of changing the lamp’s brightness.
The brightness of the lamp is enough for most desk and reading arrangements. It’s quite popular on Amazon primarily for the value-to-price proportions, versatility, and energy efficiency. At its maximum setting, it consumes around 6W of power.
2. TAOTRONICS LED DESK LAMP
The best part is that it comes with a touchpad which lets you change the light settings seamlessly. The joints are flexible and let you change the position and angle of the light with minimum effort. There are some added perks as well, such as the built-in USB-A port for charging your smartphone or earphones.
As noted earlier, it’s quite popular on Amazon. Users love it for its flexibility and the varied brightness settings.
3. LUXE CORDLESS LED DESK LAMP
Interestingly, you can change the angle of the light pretty easily. For now, you can change the angle to a flat 180-degree.
The cordless feature brings its own set of pros and cons. While you can carry it anywhere, you’ll need to charge the light from time to time manually. If we talk numbers, the Luxe desk lamp is rated to last up to 40 hours after a top-up. As you might already know, the battery life depends a lot on the light’s intensity.
4. EZVALO SMART LED DESK LAMP
Again, it’s a touch-based lamp, which means minimal effort to turn it off/on. At the same time, it’s pretty flexible, and you can twist the lamp’s head to adjust the light’s beam as per your preference.
Like typical lamps, you can adjust the brightness and the color temperature. The Ezvalo Smart LED lamp is also equipped with a brightness sensor that automatically adjusts the brilliance as per the ambient lighting.
Though it is not as popular as its competitors above, it has managed to rake in pretty decent reviews with people praising its sensors and the touch-based lighting.

5. BENQ E-READING LED DESK LAMP
Being a premium device, this LED desk lamp brings several nifty features. For example, it has an ambient light sensor that adjusts the degree of the light as per the ambient setting. Secondly, it has a touch-sensitive control ring to turn it off/on. The light is soft and there is no hard glare.
Moreover, the base is heavy which ensures that the lamp doesn’t topple ever if you were to adjust it frequently.
Naturally, this one is a premium product and costs a little more than the products mentioned above. But if you spend a huge chunk of your day on your desk, then this one makes for a good pick.
6. DYSON LIGHTCYCLE TASK LIGHT
All the controls are on the neck of the device. You can easily adjust the height and the length of the neck, and the ball socket makes it a super smooth affair.
We have been using this desk lamp for quite some time now and have been quite impressed by its performance, ambient light, and range of motion. Installation is easy, and the companion app allows some remote control options. However, we wish that it included a few extras such as scheduled on/off or timer function for the price.
