Accessories for your GembaRed Rave USB Powered Red LED Strip

The GembaRed Rave brings the red light party where-ever you go! We designed a very simple and versatile red light that you will find useful to help add a little extra healing and sleep-supporting light into your life!

However, we know the GembaRed Rave is not a complete solution. We design tools for biohackers, it is up to you to decide how to use it best to fill the gaps in your lighting environment.

Will you use it as room lighting, back-lighting, or LLLT? Will you have it ready to take on-the-go, or keep it stationary?

While you consider your many options for applications of the GembaRed Rave, we recommend reviewing our list of recommended accessories to help make the Rave even more convenient and useful.

The links provided are not affiliate links and we do not specifically endorse any of the products linked. These are merely to illustrate the options available to you to customize your GembaRed Rave experience.

Outlet Adapter

The key piece of equipment to get your GembaRed Rave running is the right USB adapter. In our modern life USB charging adapters and stations are everywhere! We expect most people already have outlet adapters from their phones, tablets, and other USB charged devices.

If not, or you are looking to get another then its no problem! USB chargers are cheap and plentiful. Just look for ones that provide 5V DC and about 2 or more Amps.

For extra luxury, get one that has multiple USB ports! Just make sure the Amps is higher to support multiple devices! For example, a 3 Amp USB charger with 2 ports can support 2 GembaRed Raves, or 1 Rave and one cell phone to charge.

USB multi-port splitter:

USB multi-port splitters can also be handy to support multiple USB devices including the GembaRed Rave. Just be sure the Amps supplied to the splitter and being output to each port are enough to power your devices.

Power Strip

Many modern power strips also have built-in USB charging slots. They can also help add a few extra feet of length from the wall, and provide extra outlet slots for your other devices.

Power strips that have individual switches on each outlet port also adds a convenient on/off function for your GembaRed Rave (see below).

Battery Bank:

For the ultimate use of the GembaRed Rave, take it off the grid with a Charging Battery Bank. These are typically used to charge phones, but will work to run a GembaRed Rave for at least several hours depending on the size of the battery. This also ensures a pure off-the-grid DC current to guarantee no flicker from your Rave! Make sure to find a high-power battery bank that provides 5 Volts and at least 2 Amps current, low power or small battery banks won't do it!

On/Off Switch:

At GembaRed we view on/off switches as a basic commodity easily found on the internet, which is why they are not included in our products!
