Turn your empties into a USB LED bottle lamp

You could toss that empty 750mL rum bottle into the trash, return it to the depot and get your quarter back or you could really be environmentally friendly and turn it into a funky little USB desk lamp. This can easily be made possible with the Satechi Touch USB LED Bottle Lamp.

This clever little gadget that can turn any bottle into a lamp comes in the form of a kit. It features a frosted white shade and an LED bulb rated at 50,000 hours with attached USB cable that powers your lamp. You simply pop it onto any empty bottle and plug it in to any USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on your computer or USB compatible AC power source.

To turn your lamp on and off you simply need to touch the silver disk at the top of the lamp. It’s that easy.

The shade comes in one size and only in one colour and great if white is your colour of choice. On the other hand if you get tired of looking at the rum bottle, or rum is no longer your beverage of choice, you can easily replace it with any empty from which you have just consumed its contents or any bottle which you can lay your hands on. The possibilities are endless! What’s also great, is that should you decide to redecorate, simply pop the shade and bulb off the top of the bottle. The lamp should be reasonably cool to the touch since it consumes very little power, a mere 1.2 watts, significantly less than other types of lamps.

But who says you can have only one!

The Satechi USB Touch LED Bottle Lamp is available for an introductory price of $24.99 at Satechi.net and Amazon.com and comes with a one-year warranty.
