REVIEW – I’ve thought about ways to spruce up my video calls with interesting things in the background. I’ve seen these LED tiles before but the price seemed out of range. I had a chance to take a look at these hexagonal shaped LED lights from Lamp Depot. How did they work out?

What is it?


The touch sensitive modular wall lights are hexagonal shaped tiles that you can connect and control independently. Choose from constant-on light, color change, or fade color change modes.

What’s in the box?

  • Six hexagonal LED tiles
  • USB cable (no power supply included)
  • Five connectors
  • Remote control
  • Six adhesive discs

There seems to be some discrepancy between the box labeling and the actual product. For example, there are no magnets or iron discs. It’s possible there’s another version that’s magnetic. I was also given 5 connecting links and one remote.

Design and features

Each tile measures 3.5″ inches from flat edge to edge. Fits in the palm of your hand.

On the back of the tiles are five connecting ports, and one USB port. This allows many different configurations.

This isn’t something you see every day: A USB cable with two USB-A ends. No power supply included.

I received six foam adhesive discs and a remote control. If you’ve played with RGB LEDs the remote should be familiar.

Setup

Setup is simple. Each connecting bridge links two tiles together.

Here’s one random example. Note the USB power cable on the right.

Flip it over, power it up, and you’ve got light!

Performance

I thought I’d play with some other shapes. Here are some others I came up with.

You can use the included remote to change all the lights a particular color, or you can tap on each tile to cycle through static color, or mode. Each tile can have its own color or its own mode. Here’s a random sample:

What I like

  • Looks nice
  • Easy to use

What I’d change

  • I thought they would be larger
  • You only get six

Final thoughts

In the end, I realized having colored lights in the background of my Zoom calls would be a little distracting, so I gave them to my son who has been decorating his room!

  2. A USB cable with two USB-A ends is actually *dangerous* to have around: the USB cable spec assumes you can pass power in one direction on a specific set of pins, and with such a cable you can connect two power supplies together and short them out. One of those ends should be something else.
