Minimum setting

Here's a book illuminated by Aerelight's minimum setting. You'd probably want something a little brighter to read by.

Touch controls

There's no switch on the Aerelight -- the entire body is a capacitive touch surface. Tap anywhere to turn it on, or to bump the brightness up.

Qi charging capabilities

There's also a Qi charger built into the base. Set your Qi-enabled smartphone down, and it'll charge wirelessly.

Compatibility

You'll find Qi-charging capabilities in a lot of Android phones. If you're using a phone that doesn't have Qi built-in (an iPhone, for instance), you can purchase a special Qi case.

Price point

The Aerelight retails for $240 (about £160 in the UK, plus an extra fee for overseas shipping). That's obviously quite a lot to pay for a desk lamp, but among OLED fixtures, it's actually one relatively inexpensive (emphasis on "relatively"). Is it worth the splurge? Let our full review help you decide.
