The LED light (which is more gentle on the eyes) will last for a long time, and the sleek lamp has a handy USB charger built right in.

They're TSA-approved, and even come with a convenient carrying case so they'll never be lost again. One reviewer summed it up best: "These collar stays and magnets keep my collar standing up as if it were a button-down collar."
