ELGATO AVEA FLARE
The Elgato Avea Flare’s egg-shaped design looks great anywhere you put it, and – as with the other lamps here – its battery power enables it to be carried all over; even outdoors, thanks to IP65 waterproofing. Elgato’s lamp offers a whopping eight hours of battery life, and the wireless charging base makes it easy to juice up. Although the name would suggest an eye-searing light output, in reality this is anything but, with just 60 lumens of brightness; it’s one for enhancing the mood rather than lighting a room, though multiple lights can be joined to increase output. If you do this, the app will automatically recognise each light and coordinate their output accordingly. The app offers loads of cool mood scenes, our fave being the flickering fire, and Flare can also be used as a wake-up alarm, using a combination of light and sound.
It’s the priciest light here, but there’s a lot to love about the Avea Flare - it’s easy to charge and great as a mood light indoors or out.
