Sometimes the structure of a regular table lamp does not offer everything you need for a work station. Desk lamps are smaller to maximize brightness in a specific area. They come equip with swivel necks for adjustable lighting and attached storage trays for organization. To take a step above the competition, Checkolite has designed a line of iHome branded lamps with built-in speaker systems. They are compatible with iPods and MP3 players and are available in a variety of styles.
