Colour Changing Mood Lights
Shapelights bring atmosphere to any indoor or outdoor space. They can be set to gently cycle through red, green, blue, green, purple, pink and light blue or you can set them to stay on your favourite colour. Shapelights also offer a brighter white and warm white setting which are noticeably brighter than the colours.
Using Shapelights Indoors
Shapelights can be used inside as mood lights for living spaces or night lights for landings or children’s bedrooms. You can plug your Shapelight directly into a plug socket or charge it by USB and use it as a portable indoor light if there is no plug socket nearby. A full USB charge takes just a few hours and will provide 50 hours of illumination.
In Indoor Mode your Shapelight will operate much like a normal mains powered light. It will turn on when you switch it on and turn off when you switch it off. Unlike Outdoor Mode, Shapelights will work in lit conditions in Indoor Mode and there is no timer to turn them off automatically after 7 hours.
Using Shapelights Outdoors
Shapelights are perfect for adding atmosphere to outdoor spaces. The base inside Shapelights contains a hidden solar panel which charges up from the sun through the shape shell. Shapelights are also USB chargeable which is perfect if you don't have a good solar charging location, or as a backup during dull weather spells. A full USB charge takes just a few hours and will provide 7 nights of illumination without any help form the sun.
In Outdoor Mode your Shapelight will turn on automatically after dark and turn off 7 hours later which conserves charge for subsequent evenings.
Shapelights have been designed to work year round in the UK using solar power alone, but they can also be fully charged using the supplied USB lead in just a few hours. USB charging is not necessary if variable illumination times in winter are acceptable, but USB charging every couple of weeks will keep your Shapelight working for the full 7 hours every night whatever the weather.
Shapelights will work for 7 nights from a full USB charge without any help from the sun so a reasonably well-positioned Shapelight will only need USB charging every 10-14 days in winter and only occasional USB charging during spring and autumn. USB charging should not be necessary at all during summer.
Please note that the bright white and bright warm white colours use more power than the standard 8 colours so runtimes in these two colour modes will be reduced.
Shapelights have a waterproofing rating of IP67 so they can be used outside year-round where they will withstand everything the British weather can throw at them. The IP67 rating means you can use Shapelights in any room in your house including bathrooms.
