Today we take the time to look at the MiPow PLAYBULB Candle. This Bluetooth controlled candle is child safe and has no actual flame. It is a LED color light system controlled from your smart phone. The app can be downloaded at the App Store or on Google Play as is told on the front of the box. Speaking about the box let us take a closer look from the consumer’s point of view.
When you first take a look at the box the front shows the name of the product, PLAYBULB, as well as the product itself along with an array of colours the PLAYBULB gives off. It may be a little deceiving as it shows these colours all at once when really the candle only projects one colour at a time yet does transition between shades and colours covering the whole spectrum of colour.
Turning the box around and looking at the back it gives you more information and a look at what the app looks like when opened on an iPhone. At the bottom of the box is tells you that the device compatibility requirements which we will get into later. Let’s open it up!
Once you cut the tape seals on the underside of the box you can slide the red casing up and off of the PLAYBULB’s black skeletal case.
You’ll then slide the black box below the PLAYBULB out. This small box contains three scented chips as well as a Quick Start Guide and small instruction guide on how to replace the scented chips.
Now to the reason we have the box, the PLAYBULB within. When you first take the PLAYBULB out you’ll recognize it as a usual everyday candle cup.
Upon further investigation you see inside the cup is the LED light, the scent chip compartment, ON/OFF switch and a small pin hole with allows the ability to treat the PLAYBULB as a real candle and blow it out.
Flip the PLAYBULB upside down and you now see the tea candle compartment which it is specifically designed for.
