After months and months of only socialising on Zoom, we’re desperate to mix things up a bit (and no, we don’t want to dress up anymore).

We’ve given up on quizzes and if we have to sign up to another online bake-along we’ll scream.

We know we aren’t alone in craving something different.

If only there was a way to turn our living room or bedroom into a disco and create an upbeat atmosphere whether on a virtual meeting or just hanging out with our household.

Well, the good news is that there is a gadget for that, and the even better news is it only costs £6.99.

The Disco Lights USB Party Lights can be plugged in to create a responsive light show, which means your Saturday nights at home need never feel flat again.

Why we rate it:

This powerful little gadget has a voice-activated sensor and so can change colour and speed in time with the rhythm of your music to help create a fun atmosphere.

The disco ball can be used with smartphones or anything with a USB port, which makes it super easy to use anywhere and everywhere.

Plus, it only uses a small amount of power, so is energy efficient and lasts up to 20,000 hours.

What the reviews say:

With hundreds of ratings and 74% of customer giving it five-stars, here's why many think the affordable gadget is worth popping in your basket.

  • "Bought this to set up a mini bar in our home for my wife's 'lockdown birthday'. Fun little gadget - well worth the money."

  • “For such a small item this is great for a party.”

  • “When you first see the box you do wonder what you've bought. But this is a small but fantastic gadget. It's not going to be up to lighting up your local hall, but for a lounge it is brilliant. We did a COVID dance party on Zoom and our lighting was way better than those with a larger more expensive unit.”

  • “This was my favourite thing ever. I use it for any type of event or party, very bright, very powerful and convenient because it was USB/plug powered so there is always a place to plug it in.”

  • “Great little gadget, I've had many home discos with my friends on Zoom, we have all purchased these. Great fun!"

  • “A compact solid disco light that fitted to my iPhone very well. The light it gave off I felt was good and covered a living room ceiling. My grandchildren loved it.”
