Posted:I hadn't seen these before, until a friend bought them as a christmas present.

go here, Linkage
to see what they look like.

They are pretty small, but fit really nicely into the palm of your hand and have a nice rubbery feel to them which is easy to grip.

Also the LED's, to me, look super bright, I'm really happy with them, i seriously think you should check these out. Be nice to have some in the shop as well.

What are your impressions?

Posted:i've a set of these, the large ones. problem is that when you hit or drop them, it'll switch off. apparently it seems to be a problem with the battery holder and/or connector. haven't worked about that with a satisfactory result yet. frown

also I don't think it diffuses the colours well enough when mixing colours.

but all in all, it's still a somewhat nifty toy to have around handy.

Posted:Isnt 8 hours a bit little for leds?
I havent seen them yet and the page doesnt tell me how many leds there are in one ball but led's are suppose to be very energy saving and should require not a lot of power.


Powerball's are good fun ^^

Posted:A shop in swindon sells these, they arent very expensive and you can get them in 2 sizes, I agree with the main problem being them turning off or changing settings by themselves. xxx
