Levitation Meets Illumination
Volta is named after the Italian physicist, Alessandro Volta, a pioneer of electricity and power, and credited as the inventor of the electric battery.
VOLTA is a floating light bulb that levitates and spins with elegant grace. Wireless induction technology allows the LED bulb to cast a warm, soothing light while being suspended in mid-air.
Bring the Art of Levitation To Your Home
While most light bulbs are fixed to a socket, VOLTA is powered through magnets and the air by induction, allowing you to illuminate your home and stand out with this awe-inspiring floating lamp.
Suspended in the air with almost no friction, its gentle rotating effect will keep you mesmerized in peaceful state of mind for hours.
Durable & Long-Lasting
Volta was built to last. Its reinforced shatterproof bulb is protected against breaks and cracks, and its contact wires are 10 times stronger than those in the average lightbulb.
*In the case of breakage, we have replacement bulbs available!
Energy-Saving & Low Power Consumption
VOLTA has a wireless power module that is capable of transmitting just enough power to light the bulb up completely, but don’t worry about the electricity bill skyrocketing because it is a low power light bulb that uses energy-efficient LEDs. You can also turn off the light but keep it floating 24/7.
How Does Levitation Work?
Inside the wooden base there are two things, you will find that there is array of electromagnets and a magnetic induction charger.
When lowering the bulb onto the block, the outermost electromagnets serve to attract the bulb’s base while the inner magnets create a repelling force. This is what holds the bulb in place and causes it to hover a few centimeters above the block.
Now once within the range of the bulb’s base, the receiver is able to pick up power from the charger block via magnetic induction.
Tap On & Off
Power your Volta by simply tapping the button on the wooden base. The light will go on or off without affecting the levitation.
Our sensitive touch sensor is where the magic happens. VOLTA switch feels effortless and smooth, just like touching wood.
How to Levitate?
Getting your light bulb to float for the first time will take a lot of patience and practice at first. If this is your first time using magnetic levitation products, you may need to attempt a few times first before succeeding. However, once you succeed once, it only gets easier and easier!
Place the base on a flat, non-ferrous surface and turn on the power by connecting the cable to the base and plugging the adapter to your outlet.
Hold the light bulb with both hands. Start from the center of the base and 10cm above the base, and slowly go down until you are about 2cm above of the base. You will feel an upward repulsion force on the base.
Once you feel that the bulb is almost balanced in mid-air (not falling down or being pushed up), slowly loosen your grip. If the light bulb ends up being sucked to the base, pick up the light bulb and restart from step 2 again. Otherwise, great job, you got it to levitate!
