This deceptively simple budget priced party lamp may be just what is needed to enliven your child’s party or even just their bedroom.
In the attractive mid-market box you get the disco light itself with hard-wired UK plug, remote control, an adjustable wall/ceiling mount and a well written and easy to read if rather a small User Guide. I enclose a copy of the User Guide on the end of my unboxing video.
The light and mount are made of plastic and this where the budget price has to be paid as more costly rivals of the same design are made of metal. The remote control is quite small but the buttons are well marked and have a positive feel to them. The item is made of plastic and is quite lightweight but my unit has shown no signs of packing in but knows how it will be after use in a few parties. Also, don’t be tempted to use this outside if there is any hint of rain, as this device is not water-resistant or designed for outdoor use.
Operating is easy enough. Just plug in – there is no Off/On switch – select the mode and features you want from the remote, and there you go. The supplied power cable is quite short and so an extension cable may be needed. There is a very slight noise as the internal light wheel rotates but this would be no problem in normal use.
The remote allows you to select various lighting colours (R,G,B, RG.RB,GB), a stroboscopic lighting effect, auto colour scrolling, all with a rolling rotating light wheel effect. There are also two music-controlled modes determined by the internal microphone which cause the lights to pulse in time with the music. The difference between the two Music modes, so far as I can tell, is that in Mode 2 the lighting goes off completely when the music stops.
The lighting effects are very effective and would be perfect to give atmosphere to a party or small disco. The £9.98 price for a sophisticated remote control unit such as this is very good indeed although for long term or professional use a more expensive and more robust unit might be better.
