Tabu LuMini LED

Tabu is back with a new color-changing smart LED called the LuMini. How does it stack up with last year's Lumen LED? Click through for a quick rundown.

A little sibling

The most obvious difference between this year's bulb and last year's is the size. Like the name suggests, the LuMini is a tiny light compared to the bigger, heavier Lumen LED. It also uses less power, drawing only 3 watts.

Small, but smart

Like last year's Lumen LED, the LuMini connects with your phone using Bluetooth 4.0, allowing you to change the light's color on demand.

Presets

You'll also have access to fun presets like "Romantic Mode," which cycles through warm tones for a candlelight effect.

Music sync mode

There's also a music syncing mode that'll flash the light in rhythm with your favorite songs.

A mini price tag, too

The best part about this bulb has got to be the price. At just $35 per bulb, and ready to play with right out of the box, it's the most affordable and accessible color-changing smart LED that we've seen to date.
