Unboxing and first impressions | Yeelight Cube review

The cardboard packaging of the Yeelight Cubes is sturdy and well made. Inside, in addition to the cubes themselves, we find a power cable, a mounting base and a detailed instruction manual. In the case of the bundle that also includes the hub, the latter is also present. Otherwise, we will only find the individual cubes in the package.

The cubes impress with theirs simple and refined design. Made of high-quality plastic with a black matte finish, the cubes convey a feeling of solidity and attention to detail. The front is made of glossy plastic aimed at making the LEDs underneath shine through.

Configuration | Yeelight Cube review

Setting up the Yeelight Cubes is super simple. Simply connect them to the mains using the power cable and follow the app instructions Yeelight Station, available for iOS and Android devices. The modular design of the cubes allows for easy customization and reorganization of the lighting system. Each cube joins the other through magnetic pins, so everything can be easily remodulated to our liking. This means that the system it can be easily moved and rearranged as many times as we want.

If we decided we wanted to setup multiple cube stacks, though, they would each require their own dedicated hub, potentially adding complexity and cost, especially for more intricate setups. Furthermore, the cubes can only be stacked vertically or horizontally, limiting the range of possible configurations that can be achieved, for example, with Nanoleafs.
