I was recently contacted by the guys over at Gearbest. They liked my blog and was wondering if i was willing to do a review on one of their products. I ended up choosing the Mipow BTL100C Playbulp.
The Mipow Playbulp is a bluetooth enabled LED lightbulb with an integrated speaker. The type i got from them was a E27 socket 230VAC type.
Unboxing and Setup
The packaging looked quite good from the outside and with a simple contents. It carried the bulb and a user manual.
Setup was quick an easy. Insert the Bulb, turn on power and open the app.
The bulb turned up in the app instantly and connected without issues. The app itself has multiple settings and possibileties. You can activate light change based on phone shakes or adaptive light based on the music in the speaker.
I tried playing some music but there was no sound at first. Like most men i did not read the user guide. It turned out to be the bluetooth connection, the app itself and control of the bulb was fine i just needed to add the speaker part to my phones bluetooth connection to allow bluetooth stream. The speaker was loud, not the greatest in quality but still pretty good compared to the shear size of the unit.
Well it all worked flawlessly, the build quality seems good and overall feel to the bulb was good. The LED light could have been a bit brighter on its brightest and the sound quality is not to be compared to dedicated music systems like Sonos, Bose or similar but for the low price and functionality of the device i would definitely say it is worth it.
I will be handing out this product for free. All you need to do to enter the competition is to share this blog post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest with the hashtag #duppeditten and #mipow. The winner will be chosen on the 20 of August.
