Always look your best on any video call with these portable lighting options from Hypop


"Work from home" turned out to be a whole lot of Zoom and Teams meetings for many of us, but with Hypop’s Lume Cube mini video conferencing lighting and 6” clip-on Ruby ring light you can always put your best face forward. In fact, give yourself a glow-up whether you’re working or not.

Hypop specialises in providing the best tools to bring out your greatest creativity, and these two lighting options really bring a huge bang for your buck.

When you think of video conferencing lighting you might imagine something big and large, shining on you from above against a backdrop - bringing sweat down your brow, and taking an hour to dismantle and fold up into a carry bag. That’s not the case here.

Instead, the Lume Cube panel mini video conference light and the Ruby ring light are both remarkably light and portable - the panel light is a mere 85g - but yet both bring bright illumination way in defiance of their size.

Let's start with the Lume Cube video conferencing kit. This is a 9.1x5.6x1.3cm LCD display with 60 LEDs that combine to provide colour temperature ranging from 3200K to 5600K and controllable brightness from 1% to 100%. It is battery-powered - charged by USB-C - and you control power, temperature, and brightness with a simple button and dial. The unit includes a display so you know what you’re set to, and importantly, so you know how much battery life you have. It’s quite fascinating watching the battery life change as you experiment with the settings, from 1.2 hours on maximum brightness down to 10 hours on the dimmest settings.

It's rectangular, so it sits easily, but the package also includes a suction mount with an adjustable screw so you can affix the camera wherever works for you - the back of your monitor or the side; the wall, a desk, anywhere that works.

It's shockingly bright and effortlessly portable - so much so that it really is a must-have for your webcam and video-conferencing needs - or, if you’re so inclined, for your mobile Tik Tok and Instagram action. With the Lume Cube video conferencing kit there’s no reason not to have perfect lighting wherever you are.

iTWire found it tremendously useful and remarkably usable. It's highly effective and we found it even doubles as a torch, it’s that bright.

Take a look at it in action here:

Meanwhile, The 6" Ruby Ring Light from Hypop is, as the name gives away, a circular light. It contains 48 individual LED lights around its ring providing numerous light sources that give even lighting across your face.

It sports a clip to attach to your tablet or phone, monitor, laptop panel, or desk up to 3.5cm in thickness. It really is clip-and-go and can be used in-situ or wherever the fancy takes you. It is USB-powered without a battery but can draw from the devices you clip it to.

The Ruby Ring Light is colour adjustable from 3200K to 5600K (natural daylight). It can be ready whenever you are and whenever you need it, ensuring all your calls are well lit up.

Like the Lume Cube panel, the Ruby light is portable and can be set up and used in seconds. Although you can attach it to your desk it really is designed for portable devices and although iTWire tested it on the most serious and lofty of purposes, my daughter soon claimed it for making videos and chatting with friends and loves the clarity it brings while making her feel like a top-notch influencer or recording star.

Ultimately, both of these Hypop options are the types of things you never realised you need in your life. However, if your remote work experience is anything like mine you’re stuck on endless Zoom calls and Teams meetings and these lighting options will keep you looking fresh, alive, and dynamic.

It doesn't matter if you are working and calling late at night or during the day. It doesn’t matter if your office has a window or not, or a ceiling light or not, or even if you’re in the office at all. Hypop’s lighting options will always make you shine. Both come with a high degree of flexibility and freedom in how you position them and provide lighting options you might never have realised were available to you outside of a studio.

The Hypop Lume Cube video conferencing kit has an RRP of $119.99 and the Hypop 6" Clip-on ‘Ruby’ Ring Light has an RRP of $27.99.
