MIPOW brand is known for the leading tech maker for powerbanks back in 2010. I’ve encountered this brand at a tech store and it’s the best brand to sell me a power bank battery for my smartphone and mobile devices. Its one of the early adaptor for power bank and because of that they got a license to be an authorized manufacturer of Apple, Inc for power bank and mobile device accessories.
Flashback to present day 2014, and I’m surprised that MIPOW is developing new tech for mobile users and they didn't stayed in the power bank category. They won lots of awards from European Red-Dot Design Awards, International Forum iF Design Awards, GOOD DESIGN Awards and IDEA Awards, and their tech developing lead lands them 48 patents and more to come.
here’s a brief info of MIPOW
MIPOW, (pronounced as MY-POW, the letters “MI” stands for “myself”, and “POW” represents “vitality & power”) was founded in 2010 in Hong Kong by Mr. Yeung, Wei Yung, Stanley, as a young, innovative brand with the key value of “Make it Different”. MIPOW is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Baojia Investment Group, which has major business interests in property development, new energy, electronics and venture capital. MIPOW has offices in the United Kingdom, United States and Hong Kong with sales channels covering Asia, Europe, America, Australia, Africa and the Middle East.
At the MIPOW tech conference in EDSA Shangri La Hotel, they showcased first their previous mobile accessories, from power bank, to smart bank up to audio accessories, these are available now in the market.
Looking back during the early days of MIPOW, I can still remember my old MIPOW power bank back in 2012 and you can read my feature here at http://azraelsmerryland.blogspot.com/2012/06/mi-pow-power-tube-review.html
MIPOW now also makes headphones, not just ordinary headphones, they are Bluetooth headphones. you can now listen to your music from your smart devices via wireless.
From Power tube to Power banks and now comes the Power Cube and Smart power bank.
MIPOW increases their portable battery capacity up to 8000 mAH. While for others, They also inject a feature that you can monitor your smart power bank via an app to see if its full battery or how many percent of charge is remaining.
For today, 2014, Power banks are now smart and not boring. In other MIPOW’s product, they fused a power bank into a Bluetooth speaker.. awesome!
Boomax speakers are also a MIPOW product, it’s a Bluetooth wireless speaker.
Also featured in the tech conference is their very own MIPOW Bluetooth Voxtube, a wireless Bluetooth headset for mobile phones
For the Holiday season, here’s the new product line up of MIPOW that will make you say “I WANT THIS!” or say shut up and take my money!
1. Playbulb Candle
It’s the 1st member of MIPOW’s Playbulb series, it’s a LED candle lamp with hard plastic cup with a shape of a real candle holder, but instead of real candle with fire, they uses their MIPOW Bluetooth tech for you to control the LED colors and blink with the use of your mobile phones.
You can use an Android or iOS devices to control any Playbulb series.
But you have to download and install first the Playbulb X app and launch it in your devices to control the LED behavior.
With the use of the Playbulb X app, you can control the colors remotely or even the blink and duration of the change of colors of the Playbulb Candle.
Playbulb Candle is not rechargeable, this is powered by AAA batteries.
Playbulb Candle is also good for indoor and outdoor
Here’s Playbulb Candle in my hand. Its light and cute.
You can also turn off the candle led light by blowing it, just blow with air inside the candle jar and you’ll see that the LED light will go off. You can also tap the top of the jar to activate it or turn it off again.
You can also pair this with other Playbulb series, control all of them in one app

Playbulb Color is one awesome invention of MIPOW, I really like this tech and for a price of nearly PHP 4k, you can control this light bulb with your mobile device.

The function is similar to Playbulb Color, but this version got no speaker. You can only control the light and the colors with the use of the app.
