Review - MiPow Playbulb Candle

Note: This post was adapted from my old blog and was originally written in february 2014

Hi everyone,

Last week I was quite struck by some very nasty flu. Fever, headache, sore throat, muscle aches, coughing, sneezing, sniffling, a painful skin and hot to the touch, chills, cold, hot, you know how it is ... Very annoying.
Plus, my nephew deceased last weak, he was 14 years old and has unfortunately deceased after a severe epileptic attack (he was also severely autistic, so the educators of the institution where he stayed, unfortunately failed to make him take his medication) and last Saturday, on Valentine's Day, my family said goodbye to him. Me, I was unable to go, it really was a very unwelcome flu. I still had a fever. Needless to say that I have a very bad week... It was awful!
We all miss him, but life goes on, they say, so that's what we should do, continue with our lives, but 2 deaths in our family, in just a year's time, it does something to a person ... This friday, it's just a year ago that my grandfather died ... Unbelievable!
Anyway, life goes on and I finally overcomed that flu, so it was time to reintroduce myself to my personal computer and continue with the reviews that I had to place aside when I was sick and mourning. Today I have a cute and colorful gadget for you! :)

Mobilefun, an international leader in the online sale of mobile phone accessories, gave me the chance to test out the Mipow Playbulb Candle and today, I like to tell all of you some more about this inventive candle.

But let me start by telling you some more about MobileFun! ;)

Now, over to the Playbulb candle! ;)
Experience the glimmer of a real flame through the wonders of technology. The MiPow Playbulb candle has LEDs for a wide variety of colors to create mood and can even be blown like a real candle. It's handy, smart, and most important ... safe!

What is this Playbulb Candle and why would you want to buy this? Well, let's see, shall we? ;)

  • Beautiful digital candle with millions of selectable colors
  • Powered by batteries
  • Perfectly safe, no flash
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use
  • Operated via smartphone app
  • Control multiple Playbulb candles
  • Blow to turn off
  • Compatible with iOS and Android smartphones

This moveable candle, which you can use both in as outside and which color and effects can be changed so easily with an app on your smartphone, is the perfect candle. There's absolutely no fire involved, after all, this LED candle is battery operated and is completely safe. Very handy if you have children or pets, if you ask me! ;)
Since you can use this candle both in and outside, it's perfect to use at every gardenparty, on your balcony or even when camping. You have to blow very precise to turn it off so it wont be blown out by the wind.

There are tons of different choices and effects, like I said before, so you can turn every room, garden or wherever you would like to use this candle, into a nicely lit, magical and moodsetting spot. Yes, even "just" white light is possible and you also can put the candle in "candle mode", making it seem like a real burning candle. ;)

Inside the candle, there's a small hole, just above the switch; Just blow that spot and watch the candle go out! Remember to turn the switch off too... ;)
In the middle, there's the LED light, in the form of a burning wick, and around the lamp, there's a lid with holes that you can lift and remove, and where one of the three supplied fragrant discs can put in. In the box you'll also find instructions on how to use the candle.

The candle will not illuminate a full room, after all, it's not a ceiling lamp, but it certainly does provide enough light to create atmosphere, to see something lying on a table in a dark garden for example, or to use as a night light.

As you can see in the picture above, you can also turn the candle upside down and use it as a tealight holder, so you have double light! ;) This use has been approved by the manufacturer and is completely safe.

The candle is powered by 3 AA batteries. These are not included. But that's actually the only downside that I personally have about this gadget.

To place the batteries, you turn the lid below untill it opens, then open the lid underneath the first lid and you place the batteries. Close it by turning it again 
and your candle is ready to use! :)

With the free Playbulb X app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, you can easy control your Playbulb Candle, all via a wireless Bluetooth connection. You can also choose the different effects you adjust, change the speed of the changing color, set your candle on one color or let the candle flicker like a real candle. Also, you can play music through this app and let your candle adjust on the music. You can also set the candle to shake mode, to change the color by shaking your phone. And all this with 3 batteries and a Bluetooth connection! You even can control multiple candles at once, and if you blow one, you'll extinguish them all! :)

You can buy the Playbub Candle for €17,99 at Mobilefun.

My opinion:

I'm very happy with my cool, colorful gadget and I'm really thinking about buying me another one, because these candles are also very nice in group.
The only downside is, as I said, they are supplied without batteries, but batteries are quickly bought, so that's definitely not a problem if you ask me.
Blowing out the candle takes a little practice, but after trying a few times, you also have mastered that.

My ratings: a well deserved 8/10!

Whay do you guys think about the candle?

Thanks for reading and a massive thanks to Mobilefun for allowing me to write this review! :)
