Posted:I have just recieved my electroglow poi (Within 5 days [very impressed]) and it suddenly occured to me that I can switch the leds from my poi to the staff and vice versa. Therefore I think it would be a good idea to sell the LED's seperately from the equipment so you can swap and change the colours as you please. I for one would buy different colour LED modules to swap between my equipment.I just thought it would be a good idea, let me know what you think!------------------'Never argue with an idiot.

Posted:Also you could add a second LED unit to the top of the ElectroGlo Poi.(A LED unit that flashed would be very cool!)

Posted:Dude! Go to Radio Shack or a similar electronics/computer parts store, and pick out the ones you want. They are dirt cheap, just get the highest voltage you can find, because that affects the brightness. You can even buy bags of assorted colors if you aren't quite sure. LED's are really easy to work with.------------------I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.~~~Dance as if noone is watching!~~~PLUR(RE) ---J---

Posted:Same here! I love those poi, and I'd certainly splash out on some more colours... would be a whole lot more fun, hopefully for quite a bit less... how much would those things cost on their own? Wheeee! Would it be possible to get some kinda crazy-ass high-tech strobing style thingies? That would look damn good... T--------------------"Too much television watchin' got me chasin' dreams..."--

Posted:Unfortunately their next batch now all have the LED units glued in place. This is to stop the LED units travelling up the tube. We did talk about other ways of securing the LED units in the pipes without gluing. They are going to give it futher thought and get back to me.

Posted:Ok, so if you can now get the led units on the hop shop, does this mean the new batch (if i were to order electroglo stuff now) doesnt have the led units glued in place?I dont own any electroglo kit but im looking to get some soon. Does anyone have any favourite colours?/which ones look best?

Posted:hey, I think if you get blue ones (they need to be the right blue ones, so you might have to swap the led's from their holders/battery packs for the right ones) you can make them strobe in the UV range (cant be continuous else they knacker the led's) with some circuitary... ...its been mentioned before somewhere, but not sure if the two have been combined... I have fiddled a bit and its pretty effective... if its not on this site, e-mail me and I will have a look around the shed and see if i can send a circuit diagram...
