I have tried several earlier generation moon lights, similar to this one in that they are 3D printed and are supposedly correctly mapped from a real image of the moon but this new 15cm diameter 3D printed Moonlight from toyuugo offers several handy features the others lack.
The lamp arrived nicely presented in an attractive box with all the information you need to know to operate the moon printed on it. Inside is the moon lamp itself, a short USB to the micro-USB charging cable, the wooden stand in two parts, and a credit card sized remote control.
The first thing to do is to assemble the stand and although you only need to push two pegs into two holes this can be rather tricky first time. Once assembled the moon just sits on top and is securely held in place. On the underside of the moon is a small off/on switch and a micro-USB charging port – a nice advance from the non-standard plugs used on the older models. Switch the moon off and plug it in to charge and when ready the moon will change in colour from a dim red to green.
To operate it you can use the 24 button soft key remote which allows a range of colours, fade modes and five dimming levels to be selected. Alternatively, you can just lightly pat the moon itself to scroll through the principle colours. Many of the older rivals are battery only and have to be switched off and plugged in to charge during which time the lamp will not work. This one you can leave plugged in all the time.
The light looks great both at night as a light and during the day as a room feature and can be left plugged in continuously. The light is bright but dimmable and offers 16 colours in various combinations and fading patterns.
For the £21.99 price, this is an advance on the old-style rivals and well worth the slightly extra cost.
