Create a colorful space with this RGB cube light.
I’ve always liked to surround myself with colorful lights. They relax me and make rooms feel a little like Christmas. That time of year always brings a smile to my face and I think that’s part of the reason why I try to add in RGB light devices wherever I can. I have many smart light bulbs and strips throughout my home and office as well as some basic lamps like this LED Cube Light by Loftek.
Lighting takes shape. The Cube Light is part of Loftek’s Shape Light series of products, which also includes ball, moon, and egg-shaped lamps. The Cube Light comes in four different sizes — 4″, 8″, 12″ or 16″. I opted for the 8″ version because I wanted it to fit inside a cube-shaped storage shelf. The light is a multicolored LED with a high-quality, eco-friendly acrylic housing. The 12-inch and 16-inch cubes can actually support up to 300 pounds for sitting or standing. The lamp features 16 RGB colors and four different lighting modes. It’s remote controllable and rechargeable with the included AC adapter. As long as the power port is covered, the Cube Light is rated IP-65 and considered fully waterproof and dustproof. It can be used indoors or outdoors.

I’ve liked Loftek products for some time now. A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to try out a 50W Flood Light from Loftek and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Therefore, I was thrilled to be able to try out one of their more decorative products. The Cube Light arrived in a simple cardboard box with the Loftek logo/name stamped on it. Set-up was a breeze as you only had to plug it in to charge. The light did have some charge to it out of the box, but it was quickly used up (in about 2 hours). It produces a soft but vibrant colored light. As you can see from the photos, it creates a glow for users to enjoy.
As I mentioned, I opted for the 8-inch version of this light given the placement I had chosen for it. That said, I could definitely see the uses of the larger options as seating or as a designer side table. It’s a very unique lighting/mood-setting piece of decor that could be used in many different places. I was surprised at how easily the remote worked with the Cube, but if you happen to have other remote-controlled lighting (that operates by IR signal), you could end up changing the colors along with the Cube Light. This happened to me. I have a simple remote-controlled RGB light strip in my entryway and the Cube Light happens to be located within about 3 feet of it. I found that when I changed colors of the Cube, the strip changed, too. I was able to remedy this situation by relocating the IR sensor of the strip but its something to be cautious about.
Even though the lamp can use battery power, I opted to keep it plugged into power so that I don’t have to worry about the lamp dying on me. The only problem with this is that the cable for the AC adapter isn’t very long. I have it stretched out to reach an outlet and that didn’t leave me much room for hiding the cable.
I adore this lighting option. It is a great compliment to my personal style and it creates a great environment to work in. I can recommend this for any type of user.
