The Levitating Moon Lamp is becoming more and more popular. Some of you may have seen it on Facebook or Instagram. The photos are usually splendid, but viewers still have questions in mind, what is it? How does it levitate? To answer these questions, we recommend that you read our other blog, “Everything you need to know about Levitating Moon Lamp.”
Why is this buyer’s guide?
When the time is right, you may want a decoration in the bedroom, your office desk, or a gift to your beloved. If this is the case, you may give the Levitating Moon Lamp a thought. We spend a tremendous amount of time researching all the Levitating Moon Lamps on the internet. The result is this blog post. It will save you time on your decision.
There are roughly hundreds of sellers on the internet that sell similar lamps. Since there is no original design patent, anyone with some DIY capabilities and some machinery can make one. The product quality and features vary from store to store. We will measure some popular features and specifications. These measures will distinguish products from different merchants.
What do we compare?
The features and specifications we compare are colors of lights, switch methods, leveling aids, battery powering, the size of the lamp, and the variety of the globe.
The lamp usually illuminates in 3 colors, and some have 20 colors, enough to fill in your palette. The power switch on the base also controls the light switching, but if you have 20 colors, the lamp may provide remote control.
Levitating is a state that is usually unstable. Some people may get frustrated putting the globe into a levitating state. It’s not that easy to find a perfect balance for the first-time user. In that case, some merchants provide an auto-leveling base, to help users from frustration. For a true minimalist, a power cable is even unacceptable. Hence, a few merchants even have a battery in the base, so the whole thing can sit on any table without considering a power outlet.
As 3D printing material adapts, the size of the levitating planet becomes larger and larger yet maintains a lightweight. Some merchants have many planets to choose from, even plants. Anything can levitate.
We will use a chart to show each merchant’s features and specifications. Besides, we have listed their prices as of March 31, 2022. Their services, as they claim, are also included in this chart for you to compare. The prices are in US dollars. The shipping address is in the State of New York, United States of America.

A further thought on the review
Many of these online sellers aren’t serious about their products. You may find one seller advocates their moon lamp is 7 inches in diameter if you look. But, the fine print in the details section says the actual size is 5.5 inches. A few sellers exaggerate the popularity of their products. They display an incorrect number of visitors on their website.
