Can you replace the bulb on the Philips Hue Go?

Best answer: The bulb found on the Philips Hue Go portable light fixture can't be replaced. Given that the light has been designed to last for up 20,000 hours, however, this probably doesn't matter.Amazon: Philips Hue Go (opens in new tab) ($80)Amazon: Philips Hue Bridge (opens in new tab) ($48)

That's a lot of light, folks

With a 20,000-hour life cycle, the Philips Hue Go could run 24/7 for more than two years. If you use the light just four hours per day, its life cycle jumps to 5,000 days, or over 13.5 years. There are very few products that can last that long with regular use.

A built-in rechargeable battery means you use the Hue Go anywhere you want for up to three hours between charges. Plug it into an electrical outlet to charge and for continuous use.

Looking for more? The Hue Go has seven lighting effects built into the device,, which you can change with the push of a button. Use these effects to create a mood, help you concentrate, or get ready for bed.

Adding it to your home

The Philips Hue Go smart table lamp can work on its own, but it also works with the Philips Hue Bridge (opens in new tab). Connected the Go to the Bridge allows you to control your lights from one of the many Hue-compatible apps on the market. You can also control your lighting with your voice using Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, or Google Assistant. You don't need a Bridge to use the Go, but if you want to unlock the full potential of your Go, you might need it.
