To use this bulb is incredibly simple, it operates just like any other bulb: just screw it into any E27 or B22 socket and connect it to a power source, and flip a switch. Let there be light. But do remember, it's not a normal bulb, it's the BL-05 Bluetooth Music Playing Color Changing Smart Bulb! Wait, it also plays music? How can a light bulb even do that? The simple answer is: through the wireless magic of Bluetooth control. Let's check it out.

Personal Comment

Yes, I know that there are lots of similar products available, other smart bulbs exist on the market. And, sure, most also utilize a Bluetooth connection, wireless remote control, and even a color changing feature.

However, put them all side to side and one of these smart bulbs is not the same. The BL-05 smart bulb stands out because it has an awesome built-in speaker! So it's not just a color smart bulb, it's also a wireless Bluetooth speaker!

And the icing on the cake is the groovy Auto color changing mode, so the bulb is literally dancing along with the music. That is a killer feature for anyone who loves to hold parties at home for a cool club atmosphere, or if you simply enjoy relaxing.But, even with all these terrific, fun-filled features, the price is still unbelievably cheap for the functionality and versatility.

What do you think about this bulb? Pretty cool and unique, right? It would certainly make for a unique gift or just a personal treat: the price is so affordable with excellent functions. In fact, it's hard to find a reason not to own one. Whether it's for normal daily use or special occasions, bring the magic of light and sound home with the BL-05 Bluetooth Color Changing Smart Bulb.
