The USB Lightbulb is a no-fuss portable laptop lamp. To turn it on, simply plug it into any USB port.

Smartly, the USB Lightbulb's power cord also doubles as its flexible stand. The thin electrical conduit easily supports the weight of the bulb so you can position it precisely where you want it.

Housed inside the plastic bulb is a long-lasting cool white LED. And as a bonus, the bulb's surface glows in the dark when not plugged in.

USB laptop light with zero fuss

The USB Lightbulb Lamp is as simple to operate as possible: plug it in. There are no switches, no batteries, no lampshade, and no bluetooth pairing.

Simply insert the USB plug into any USB port and you've got light!

The power cable = the stand

By utilizing a flexible electrical conduit for the USB cord, the creators of the USB Lightbulb Lamp solved two problems simultaneously.

First (and most importantly), they routed power to the LED bulb. Second, they created a stand that is extremely flexible. You can position the lightbulb precisely because the cable holds its shape and is strong enough to support the weight of the bulb. Wicked smaht.

Glows in the dark when not in use!

We love stuff that glows in the dark! And while you wouldn't normally think to make a bulb out of phosphorescent material, we think it's brilliant! (Pun city!) Whenever the USB Lightbulb Lamp is plugged in, it's charging the glow in the dark material.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Does it need a battery?

Answer: Nope! Just plug the USB cable into the USB port on your computer. The LED bulb requires very little power (a mere 0.8W).

Question: Is there an on/off switch? How do I turn it off?

Answer: The designers wanted simplicity. To turn it on, simply plug it in. To turn it off, unplug it.

Question: What color is the light?

Answer: It's a cool white (meaning it has a hint of blue in it).

Question: How bright is it?

Answer: It's a soft light. It certainly won't illuminate an entire room. However, if you're using your computer in a dark room, it's going to provide plenty of illumination for the keyboard and surrounding area.
