Neat lighting idea!
6 February 2019 [Verified Purchase]

I do like this and all the color choices for lighting. I like that I can pick it up and carry it anywhere without having a cord. I do agree with another review that it is a bit overpriced but it is a neat concept. I added a picture of the bottom of the light to show the manual power button for those who asked.

Customer feedback from the British Amazon

Not as big as a WOW! as you may think
April 30, 2019 [Verified Purchase]

Ordered the product think ‘Hey! could possible use this in the kids room for a mood light/night light!’
When I received the product I was like WHOA! its the size of a soccer ball!
Setup was easy on my smartphone and the light has many different colors and changes from bright to dim very easily.
It seemed though after setup the connection to the phone was indeterminate sometimes it will connect to change ‘mood’ or ‘color’ and then sometimes it took awhile to connect or you had to stand right next to it.
Very disappointed I couldn’t connect it to my SmartThings hub to program/schedule certain activities/moods.
I suppose overall you want a talking piece around your house go ahead and purchase this item. Otherwise, I think it’d be cheaper to purchase LED bulbs and program them.

Mood Lighting

This stylish lamp is packed full of options to customize your experience. Over the last few weeks I’ve tested it in several rooms of my home, outside on my back deck at night and on a camping trip. The lamp is a slightly larger then basket ball size and an opaque white color. The bottom of the lamp is flat and sits on a wireless charging base you plug into the wall. When your not charging it you can remove the lamp from the base and there is a study mental hanger you can pull to hang the lamp up. I made use of this feature during my camping trip. This lamp does require wifi connection to access the full range of colors on an app for your smartphone. If your not near a wifi connection you can still access 6 preset colors by using a button on the base of the lamp. There is also a power on/off button there as well. We really enjoyed using it for camping. My greatest wish would be they would make the lamp Bluetooth controled so it doesn’t require wifi connection. All our camper neighbors were inquiring where we got our beautiful lamp 🙂 At home I tested it in my bedroom and living room. Its really fun for setting the mood in the living room but it was a little too bright for my bedroom at night when I tried too sleep. It does feature an option to lower or raise the brightness of the lamp. I also tested it on my back deck while using the hot tub. When connected to wifi you have a very large selection of custom colors perfect for any setting. Overall outdoor night time use provided the best experience for me with this lamp. This lamp is perfect for outdoor parties, poor or lake side.
