Mobile workstations are definitely becoming more popular and there are a wide variety of options available to suit pretty much any need. Hammacher Schlemmer has added a new lap desk to their collection that promises to not just make your workspace more productive and comfortable, but can charge your iPad and phone simultaneously while you work. Sounds like something that could come in handy.

The Only iPad Back Up Battery Lap Desk (which is actually its rather unwieldy name) measures 22″ W x 12 1/2″ D x 11″ H and weighs just 4 3/4 lbs. When not in use, it folds up to about the size of a laptop for easy storage and travel. For the most part, it’s similar to every other lap desk you’ve seen, with adjustable height legs and a divided surface that can be set to different angles depending on what you need. The part we’re interested in is the built-in 10,000 mAh rechargeable battery, though.

The battery takes about eight hours to charge (using the included USB cable), and is supposed to be able to charge an iPhone six times or an iPad for 10 hours. Of course, since it’s USB, you don’t have to have an iSomething to use it… it’s compatible with any device that uses a USB connector. There are two USB ports integrated into the desktop to make it easy to charge your devices while still being able to use them. The Only iPad Back Up Battery Lap Desk also has a USB-powered gooseneck LED lamp, that is bright enough to see your paperwork while being focused enough to not disturb anyone who might be sleeping next to you while you put the finishing touches on tomorrow’s presentation.

If you’re in the market for a lap desk, you could do a lot worse than this one. At $99.95 US, the Only iPad Back Up Battery Lap Desk is a little more expensive than some, but fairly reasonably priced when you consider its charging abilities.
