Here's a lamp with a twist: The neck of the Yo Lamp bends to where you… (Zelco )

The Yo Lamp is a little battery-powered task light with a flexible 18-inch arm that winds out of and back into a yo yo-like 3.5-inch-diameter by 1.5-inch-thick plastic base.

Uncoil all 18 inches, or just some, and bend the arm for the illumination you want. This is more a spotlight than a lamp, but the beam is bright, the on-off push button is easy, and the base comes in shiny blue, green or fuchsia as well as black or white.

It runs on three AAA batteries (not included) or the included USB cable. You’ll want batteries installed even if you are using a power cable, because without the batteries’ weight, the Yo Lamp is kind of tipsy.

Yo Lamp costs $35. Info at Zelco.
