DeTake Disco Party Light

Rebadged and relaunched 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, USB cable, suction mount, 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 in my unboxing video.

The light and mounts are made of plastic and this is where the budget price has to be paid as more costly rivals of similar design are made of metal. The remote control is quite small but the buttons are well marked and have a positive feel to them. Although made of plastic and quite lightweight my unit has shown no signs of packing in but who knows how it will be after use at a few parties. The unit can be connected to a power bank for easy use outdoors, a 10,000 mAh power bank should give around ten hours of use. However, don’t be tempted to use this outside if there is any hint of rain, as this device is not water-resistant.

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 USB power cable is quite generous at 4m but extension cables are easily available as are Powerbanks which can also be used to power this device. Although the device is powered by USB it is a pity a non-standard cable was used, so take care not to lose it.

The remote allows you to select seven lighting colours (R,G,B, RG.RB,GB, Scrolling), and three modes ( Audio Triggered, Strobe, Auto Scroll) The music control mode is determined by the internal microphone which causes the lights to pulse in time with the music.

The lighting effects are very effective and would be perfect to give atmosphere to a party or small disco. The £9.99 price for a sophisticated remote controlled 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.
