LumiCharge II is the brighter way to charge your phone

Space is usually at a premium on any desk or nightstand. LumiCharge II helps you reclaim some real estate by combining a smart LED desk lamp with a wireless charger in one device.

  • What is the best color temperature for reading? In general, bright white light offers the best contrast. However, you might want warmer colors at night to keep your brain relaxed.
  • Which is better: LED, incandescent, or halogen? Probably LEDs. They are more efficient and longer lasting. In addition, they release no radiation and they come in many colors.
  • What is the best LED desk lamp? With multiple settings to choose from and a wireless charging base, LumiCharge II is an excellent option.

Think about cutting-edge tech, and your mind probably sets off in the direction of folding smartphones and self-driving cars. But the humble lamp is a device that is also ripe for innovation. Older lamps waste energy, and there is no way to change the intensity or color of the light. What’s more, many have a pretty large footprint.

LumiCharge II has been designed to overcome these challenges, and add a little extra. This stylish LED lamp lets you choose from various lighting settings, and charge your devices wirelessly on the base. It even has a time and date display, and a USB port for older devices.

What is a smart desk lamp?

On most desk lamps, you will only find a single switch. Your options are on or off. In contrast, a smart desk lamp gives you a variety of settings and features to play with.

LumiCharge II is more than a basic lamp

LumiCharge II provides more features than most. This svelte smart lamp utilizes an array of energy-efficient low-heat LED bulbs on an adjustable arm. You can switch on the lamp with a touch, and adjust the brightness with a couple of taps. You also have three color temperatures to choose from: bright white, soft yellow and soft white.

It’s not only smartphones that LumiCharge II can charge

The lamp also comes with a smart watch attachment — ideal for Apple Watch and Samsung Gear owners. For other devices, you can use the built-in USB-C charging port.

Although the lamp is tall, the base has a fairly small footprint. This makes it perfect for any desk or your nightstand.

“Perfect for students, families, and offices, this dynamic LED desk lamp includes a USB charging station for multiple devices. A universal cell phone stand provides energy to your iPhone or Android device, while an extra USB port caters to those with multiple devices.” — LumiCharge

LumiCharge II is a great space saver

LumiCharge II works beautifully as both a smart LED lamp and a charging station. The fact that these features are combined in one sleek device is a major bonus.

Future designs

Initially, the second-gen LumiCharge will be available in two colors: white and black. While both look good, we would like to see some other styles in future — dark gray or polished aluminum, perhaps?
