Got mine today. For the price I paid ($2.09), how can you not like it ?. It's fairly bright and built well..

Got one a couple of months ago. Haven’t found a use for it yet, but it is very well made and quite bright too.

I haven't found a use for it yet myself. It was cheap enough. I couldn't pass up the great deal GearBest had. Call me an impulse shopper, I get it....Guilty as charged...

Geekbuying had them for 1.09$, verified originals…also bought (too) many. I use them for:
- gifts
- work light (soldering, car repair stuff,…)
- macro photos (several of them from diferent angles, well difused light)
- behind laptop and lcd monitor (running 24/7) for ambient lightening – these ones have added aluminium foil+thermal paste

Wow, you’re not kidding. Just received my USB lights today. Was not expecting them to arrive this quickly to New York this fast. Arrived very well packaged and all in perfect working order.

Thank you LightCastle. Next flashlight order goes to your company!

I finally got my 10400 Powerbank today (Actually it’s my second one – but this time it’s an original one that I don’t have to throw away…) – with green silicone-sleeve and fitting grteen LED Light.

If they only made that little ventilator also in green…

I like that light – the CRI isn’t great, but it’s bright and looks nice (and it’s cheap).

Hi, i received mine yesterday. Turned it on and after about 2 minutes, there was a burn smell coming from it. Is that normal?

No, mine doesn't smell.

Ran min on a genuine 10400. Don't know how long the total run time was, but it was running for at least 24 hours. I wish there was a moonlight mode or a version that was less bright and could run much longer. Just as a backup or for longer trips.

Its probable that i got a defective item as there is quite a strong smell. I’ll avoid using it as i would not want for my power bank to get damaged. I will contact the seller and hopefully he/she sorts it out.

UPDATE: I received a replacement light and it does not have the burnt smell.

I have also remove the diffuser and the light is very very bright.

If anyone is interested I measured the Tint and the output from two of these handy little lamps (org. Xiaomi, one blue and one red).

They measured very close to each other although I could see a slight difference in tint.

The blue one: xc,yc= (0.414 , 0.422) = 3514K , 82 lm

The red one:   xc,yc= (0.414 , 0.419) = 3498K , 78 lm

The color point corresponds to a bit greener than BIN 6B3, one could call it 6S, if this was defined in the BIN chart.

I intent to experiment with adding some red paper or a rosa filter underneath the diffuser to get rid of some of the green, but it is usable as is.

Beware, there are (unknown) tolerances on these measurements although I am more confident with the color measurements than the lumen measurements (Used instruments: Color Analyzer and Integrating Sphere).

is it just me or I can’t differentiate the quality of real and fakes?

I know I got a fake one with less components (as I only see couple of resistors and brown square blocks which i assume capacitors? I see no 3 legged components)
but it seems like the fakes I got has a brighter output and draws less amps compared to the real deal. (about 0.15A)

They both get warm after 20 minutes of use though

Nevertheless they are very cheap for something so bright

The genuine one are often heavily discounted so no need to buy fakes for that reason. If you have the genuine light you can turn it on and off with the “power button” on Xiomi Power banks. That feature also applies to the Xiaomi USB propeller(fan). I just wish there was a easy way to adjust the brightness Smile

I got several of those, they are good quality ones EXEPT for the emitters, they all do have a terrible CRI- under 50: and i am talkinf of original MI ones ( bought from Bangood)….the emitter can be easy swapped with a quality 3014 or 2835 one, dont swap it with 3528 ot 5050- those dont have a coooling pad underneath, any 3014 or even 5630-5730( swapping here will be tricky) will do, Samsung has very good cri 80+ emitters out there- they costs cents too

FWIW—I live in SoCal ( Costa Mesa, Ca)
and my local “99 cents only” store has these
USB lights in stock now—for 99 cents!
Not sure if they are Xiaomi-but they have
them in white, black, pink & purple.
Its brighter than I thought it would be Smile

Surely not Xiaomi, more likely to be this: m.aliexpress.com/item/32584076179.html

But still a very nice price

[Edited: Added memory and current draw]

I have one of those new ones. It is very nice and with 10 LEDs (old one 6).

The greenish tint is gone and it cycles through 5 levels (with a push button) with memory:

(OFF) - 0.5 - 8.1 - 39 - 107 - 169 lumen (against the old ones 87 lumen) measured in my integrating sphere (a little difficult with the long head, so I put it partly into the sphere). The color temperature was 3700K (The old one 3560K).

Current draw was 0.09 - 0.11 - 0.18 - 0.24 - 0.46 A

Now the price needs to come down.

Nice information!
Seems like I need 2 of those Silly

I have one old Xiaomi and one fake light. Both are well made but the light colour of the xiaomi was never the best.
I will give it a try.

I love Xiaomi so much Big Smile
Smartphone, Controller, 3 Powerbanks, lights, InEars – all made very good and cheap.

Are you sure about this? As it would make it terribly inefficient in the low settings.

You might forgot to watch the scale.

I have the xiaomi light and fan. They are fine – some extra garbage to sit in the drawer and never get used.

You are right, it is inefficient at low level.

I’m extremely satisfied with Xiaomi usb fan.
I used it last summer for 3 whole days of nonstop working without any problems-my laptop fan died and I took off the
bottom cover of laptop and used the Xiaomi to cool it down while waiting for the replacement fan to arrive.

That’s a bummer. In that case I’ll pass and stick with the classic – powered with just 2 half depleted primary cells, it makes nice dining lamp, and lasts for days.

I am verry satisfied with this lamp. Nice tint, no PWM and on the 2th level bright enough to light my keybord. In connection with the windows software f.lux I could get rid of all blueish light of my notebook.

Video showing the different level outputs… not HD video but… it helps to see (more or less) how it “shines” at the different outputs… (I think the lowest one is useless unless you want it for preverving night vision…)

If the info is correct… the 4th mode draws the same current than the old one…

Interesting

The first mode is useful for reading a book, laying on your back. Lay the power bank on your belly, the head of the lamp right under your nose.

Use one in the usb outlet on the back of my TV. Got the idea here: http://bgr.com/2018/01/03/tv-led-backlight-kit-eveshine-amazon-sale/
