About Luma Stone
Using LEDs and a sleek, innovative design, Luma Stone can provide instant, 360-degree ambient light anywhere. Whether you put them in the kitchen, in medicine cabinets, drawers, bedside, under the sink, or anywhere else, all you have to do is touch or move Luma Stone and you’ll “always have the right amount of light, day or night.”
Then, 15 seconds later, Luma Stone will automatically turn off, making them an energy efficient solution for light wherever you need.
Whether you own a home or rent, live in a single-family home or a 100-story skyscraper, you know that you can never have too many flashlights. From managing power outages to finding items in your closet, they can always come in handy.
Does that mean Luma Stone is worth your money? Are there other similar options you should explore? We’ll cover all of these topics in this review.
What Options Do You Have Besides Luma Stone?
If you’re looking for something designed exactly the same way, then your only option appears to Luma Stone. However, if you can expand your horizons from a design perspective and focus on lights that provide the same basic functionality, then you’ve got a whole lot to choose from.
For example, if you search online for “portable touch light” or “LED touch light,” you’ll find dozens of products that can be carried with you, placed in drawers or on a bedside table, and that can be stuck on a closet wall. If you’re open to exploring these other options, they’ll also come with two distinct advantages compared to Luma Stone:
- They’re priced about the same (or even less – more about this in the next section), and
- They can be purchased locally, which might save you a boatload in S&H charges.
Speaking of which, let’s take a look at how much Luma Stone costs.
How Much Will You Pay for Luma Stone?
Two Luma Stone sets (4 Luma Stone and 4 holders) are priced at $14.95 plus $5.95 S&H.
All Luma Stone purchases come with a 30-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges, which means you could lose a large chunk of your refund in non-refundable S&H.
Nonetheless, in order to request a refund, you’ll need to call Idea Village’s customer service department at 844-464-0951.
A Word About Idea Village’s Arbitration Clause
Although the term ‘arbitration’ might seem, well… arbitrary, this might not be the case. Why? Two primary reasons:
- First, you’ll be waiving your rights to a trial by jury or becoming part of a class action lawsuit in the event you experience damages, and
- Second, because arbitration proceedings tend to favor the company, not the consumer.
Given that all Luma Stone purchases are automatically bound to an arbitration agreement, you might want to carefully consider before handing over your money.
How Illuminating Is Luma Stone?
Your ears might have perked up when you heard that Luma Stone's built-in LEDs last a lifetime, but this might not necessarily be the case. This is because, on average, LEDs last about 50,000 hours. And while this is certainly a long time, it’s not a lifetime.
On top of this, it’s important to remember that many ASOTV products come with low customer satisfaction ratings—primarily related to poor product quality—so Luma Stone's internal workings might stop functioning long before their LEDs do.
Need one more thing to consider? Even if everything we’ve already talked about worked perfectly, we’re not told if Luma Stone features replaceable batteries, so once their charge runs out they could possibly be rendered useless.
From this perspective, Idea Village has released some heavy-hitters over the past couple years, including Yes! by Finishing Touch, Micro Touch Tough Blade, and Copper Fit line of compression wear. Here again, the most common complaints about these (and other) Idea Village products is that they’re not good quality and don’t work as advertised.
Now, we’re not saying this is absolutely what you can expect with Luma Stone, but with think it should definitely play into your buying decision.
Is Luma Stone the “Most Innovative Concept in Lighting Today”?
The HighYa team has reviewed hundreds of ASOTV products over the years, and we’ve learned that while they might technically “work,” they don’t always provide the level of value customers were expecting. Because of this, the word “scam” often starts flying fairly quickly.
Do we think Luma Stone is a scam? Definitely not, as it comes from a fairly popular ASOTV company that we’ve reviewed time and time again. But will it provide a solid value for the money? Without any customer reviews at the time of our research, it’s impossible to say.
But when you consider that you’ll be putting as much as $15 on the line just for giving it a try, local similar options might provide a better bang for your buck.
Just remember: Despite how the Luma Stone commercial might have made it seem, Luma Stone do not appear to be waterproof and shouldn’t be used outside!
