Living with roommates is tough. From sharing limited spaces to dealing with their quirks, there's a lot to manage — especially if you have wildly different schedules.

So if you find yourself studying or working late at night or early in the morning and have been looking for a compact desk lamp that won't disturb your roomie, look no further than Ambertronix's LED Desk Lamp.

Sleek and only $20, the Ambertronix LED Desk Lamp has five levels of brightness and five lighting modes so you can discreetly light your space no matter the time of day. It also has a touch-sensitive dimmer, so you won't have to worry about loud buttons or clicking.

This desk lamp, which comes in black or white, also has a USB charger so you can charge your phone. (For $5 more, you can also spring for the same lamp with a wireless charger!) And if you tend to leave your apartment without remembering to turn off the lights, don't sweat it. This lamp includes an auto-off timer for 30 or 60 minutes.

According to its product description, this lamp has 54 full-spectrum lamp beads that give off a soft light without any flickering or glare, making it "ideal for long hours of reading or studying."

Amazon shoppers give this lamp a 4.4 out of 5-star rating. One happy reviewer shared, "I have gone through about 3 desk lamps since I started working from home. This lamp is perfect. The wide range of brightness settings it has is great. As well as the tone of light… You can angle it any way you want. It swivels, can move up and down etc… It does not bother your eyes at all just a warm glow."

The only real drawback that reviewers noted was that the Ambertronix LED Desk Lamp comes with a USB cord but not a power adapter to plug it into a wall outlet. But if you don't have one lying around the house, Amazon has your back!

Lighten up and bring home the Ambertronix LED Desk Lamp ASAP.
