Auraglow Remote Controlled Colour Changing LED Light Bulb

Rating 4/5 ★★★★☆ 

The inventor I know still doesn’t have his technology available to the public, so we are all making do with what’s available. At first glance you might not get excited about this bulb, but it gives us some options we didn’t have before.

The bulb achieves colour variations by mixing red-green-blue. After reading the lighting discussion on this website, you understand why that won’t be enough to make certain kinds of colours look right in your room. Your eyes can see the bulb vary across the rainbow, but yellowish items in the room will look grey or black. That’s why I mostly recommend this for mood lighting.

In this season of the year when Britain’s days are so short and the daylight is so grim, it adds a nice touch to the evenings.

Pros

  • Because it uses LEDs, its rated life is 40,000 hours and it’s efficient.
  • You can change the colour of the light coming from it anytime you want.
  • You can control the colour remotely.
  • It’s ideal for mood lighting.

Cons

  • It is nowhere near as bright as the inventor’s LED lighting.
  • Its colour control is not as sophisticated or as easy to use.
  • It is not strong enough to read by unless you’re very close.
  • The remote control needs line of sight to the bulb.

There are bayonet and Einstein screw versions of this bulb. The screw-in version is available here: Auraglow Screw-In Remote Controlled Colour Changing LED Light Bulb.
