Xiaomi not only creates gadgets packed with electronics, but also ordinary items with quality at the highest level. They are often characterized by posts, a minimalist look that suits me very much, that's why I decided to buy a new desk lamp, Yeelight Minimalist E27 Desk Lamp.
EXLUMUM Desk Lamp
I have been tracking the product for a few weeks, the main advantage behind it was the price, often below $ 25. I waited a long time with the purchase because the shipping was "expensive" was over $ 10, which seemed to me a poor dilem to pay for the shipment half the price of the lamp. I decided, however, to buy the Yeelight Minimalist E27 Desk Lamp when I bought another product, a portable Xiaomi photo printer. The combination of two products meant that the shipping was free.
When I received the parcel from the courier, I immediately realized why the shipping cost so much. The carton from the lamp is really big. Traditionally, the Xiaomi product has been well packed, secured for transport. Styrofoam will effectively absorb all shocks and impacts.
The carton contains only the Yeelight Minimalist E27 Desk Lamp and the Osram LED bulb.
The lamp looks very nice, the whole is made of metal. My copy has minor damage at the bottom, but this is only a problem of my copy. For some people the downside may be the fact that the lamp is not regulated in any way. It does not bother me absolutely. For me, the Chinese plug is a downside. It is necessary to use an adapter, a more drastic way to cut and mount the matching to our sockets. In addition, there is a switch on the wire, a few dozen centimeters from the lamp base.
The lamp base has silicone, non-slip feet. The top of the lampshade has holes that meet only decorative characters. LED bulb does not heat up as much as traditional, incandescent, so there is no need to take care of excess heat. The LED bulb included in the set is from the top shelf, a renowned German company in the Osram lighting industry. Thanks to the LED technology, it only downloads 4,5W, and shines with the power of the "old" 40 watt. Diode lifetime is 15 for thousands of hours.
The lamp is not smart. Only the switch located on the cable serves for switching on. If the Yeelight Minimalist E27 Desk Lamp is ideally suited to the design of your room, you can screw it in intelligent light bulb from Xiaomi. You will then gain a smart lamp controlled by a smartphone, voice or through interaction with other smart home devices from Xiaomi.
Yeelight Minimalist E27 Desk Lamp is available in two colors, white or black.

The lamp is made very well, but I took away one point for damage in my copy. If you're looking for a lamp made in a simple, minimalist style, the Yeelight product will work perfectly.
