Most colorful versions come with a remote control which allows you to select from one of 16 or more different hues.

Most moon lamps are battery-powered, so it’s worth checking out how long they need to charge, and how long they last for once charged. Some hold a charge through the night, from as little as around eight hours, all the way up to 30 hours. If you want to conserve power, look for a lamp that comes with a timer function and can be set to switch off after a set period of time. This will help the battery last longer.

Think about how you want to display your moon lamp. Many come with stands or holders that can range from a simple wooden frame to a more elaborate, hand-shaped holder. But if you’re planning on hanging from the ceiling, look for one that comes with a hook included. If your favorite one doesn’t, buy a self-adhesive hook to attach to it. Just check the weight first (they’re normally no more than a few pounds) and ensure that your adhesive hook is able to support it.
