Xiaomi Lofree Candly lamp review
Unboxing and sales packaging
The attention to the details of the company is already perceived from the sales box. The package is in fact wrapped in a cardboard that recalls the cherry trees in bloom and depicts a stylized design of the lamp. Inside we find:
- Xiaomi Lofree Candly lamp;
- Support base with charging pin;
- USB cable - Micro USB;
- Leatherette hook to suspend the lamp;
- Instruction manual.
Design and construction quality
The main reason you will buy the Xiaomi Lofree Candly it is undoubtedly its aesthetic aspect, with a retro style that recalls the gas lamps born in the early 800s. The device not only imitates the design, but also the operation, reporting an ignition knob on the right side.
The small lamp of 172 x 83 x 66 mm it is then made up almost entirely of plastic: both the base - which takes on a vintage touch in its red color - and the upper part. Just the latter simulates thesmoked glass effect flawlessly. Inside we find instead one LED light a 1800 k, adjustable by means of the knob.
To interrupt the entire plastic body we find a steel insert on the top to which you can tie the rope in the package in case you want to use the suspension lamp.
Operation and user experience
The wireless lamp Xiaomi Lofree Candly offers a warm light with variable intensity and there are two ways of use. You can use the product as a normal night lamp, with constant brightness, or set the "candle" mode. You can access and switch both modes directly from the button on the back, as shown in the photo.
The mode "candle", in addition to offering a more subtle and discontinuous effect, it has a really interesting peculiarity: the Xiaomi Lofree is sensitive to noise. In the event that you speak or make some kind of noise, the flow of light will stop intermittently, simulating the wind effect.
You can also use the Candly in two different ways: either by using the integrated battery from 2000 mAh that resting it on the supplied base which, if powered, will also act as a charging dock for the lamp itself. Using the built-in battery - which recharges completely in about 3 hours - the Lofree offers about 20 hours of continuous use.
