Magic Lighting LED Bulb & Remote | Color Changing Light Bulb With Remote

Updated on August 15, 2012

Magic Lighting LED Light Bulb and Remote Review

Like a light show, the low wattage Magic Lighting LED Light Bulb and Remote offers 16 colors and several modes for virtually any use. You can use these color changing light bulbs for splashes of color in kids rooms, mood lighting, spotlights, outdoor patio, accent lighting, in aquariums or a bar area, or just about anywhere you would like a spray of colored light.

This multi-colored bulb works by remote, and offers flash, strobe, fade and smooth modes, in a brightness setting of your choosing. These modes cycle through the 16 colors at different paces.

You can also choose your color, and accent with a single favorite color as well.

How Does the Magic lighting LED Bulb and Wireless Remote Work?

You can place the bulb in any lamp that accepts a standard sized bulb, but you may prefer a light fixture that allows you to spotlight or direct the light. Magic Lighting bulbs produce colored or white light and use a normal E26 US light socket or E27 European socket.

With the bulb in place, you can use the remote to turn the bulb on and off. The wireless remote comes complete with batteries installed, and replacement batteries (CR2025) are available to purchase.

The lamp itself must be turned on for the bulb and remote to work. Be aware that the wireless remote does require close proximity to operate, you'll need to be within about 6 feet of the bulb. You do need a line of site to the bulb itself, the remote is not powerful enough to work in an enclosed or encased canister or lamp.

You can choose the mode and brightness setting you prefer using the remote. A complete breakdown of the remote is below.

How the Magic Lighting Modes Work to Produce a Light Show

When you want the colors to provide a light show, you can choose between flash, strobe, fade, and smooth. Here is what they do.

Flash - transition through the colors quickly

Strobe - transitions slower than flash between colors

Fade - slow and gradual transition between all the different colors

Smooth - slower than fade transition between colors

You can also use the top white arrow keys to change the brightness level. There are 4 different levels of brightness for these color changing bulbs.

One wireless remote can also work with multiple LED color changing bulbs.

FYI - If you find that your bulb colors are not separating well or have a hot-spot of color, there is an easy fix. Because the bulb does not get hot, using tape or wax paper over the lens can help to blend and diffuse the colors more evenly together. Give it a try!

The Magic Lighting LED bulb and remote is a fun and simple way to add color to an area at a very reasonable price. And because the bulbs are LED and have a life of 25,000 or more hours with low energy costs, you can feel good about using them.

After inserting the bulb where you want it, make sure the power source to the bulb is turned on. Now, with the remote, you can choose to turn the bulb on or off with the green and red buttons on top.

You will see the two other arrow buttons on top, these are the dimmers. You can choose how bright you would like the light to be. There are four levels of brightness.

The RGBW stands for the colors themselves (Red, Green, Blue and White), and all colors are blended from the red, green and blue. You can choose any colored button for a standard color to stay on.

If you would like a light show, with the colors changing, you want to choose a mode.The Flash, Strobe, Fade & Smooth modes will cycle through the colors at different speeds.

      Is it possible to configure the lights so when you switch them on they are all one colour and static... i.e. Not starting with red & then flashing through all the colours ?
