Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant present, filled with loads of fun and tons of entertainment. A good affordable price, and lights up a room, run your fingers across this round plasma ball to watch it grab your hand and warm it. A great gift for any age above 9, to 99, it gives you the feel of a insane scientist. I really think this is a fabulous entertainment attractor, buy it before it runs out of stock!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've really enjoyed my plasma ball. There are a few niggles though that indicate that the design could be polished a little more. *The black cover won't stay on so I've had to use a small blob of glue. *The audio mode only responds to very loud sounds. *The AC frequency that the globe uses is within my unusually-good hearing, so it emits a constant high-pitched hiss. Apart from those things, it is a beautiful decoration.

Does anyone know if it uses power when on the audio setting but not being triggered? ie Is it OK to leave it on the audio setting all the time? Cheers

Asked by: Chr1
Yes this would use power at all times so this can listen to the audio.

When you touch it does it give you an electric shock 

Asked by: Jess
This does not give the person touching it an electric shock . If one does then this may need to be exchanged for a replacement.
