Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent When i bought this the price was at £19.99, the day before it was £15 the staff at maplin were really helpful and sold it to me for the original price of £15. The scroll board is really easy to use and is about the height of an iPhone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great purchase but disc needs to include Windows 10 Although this is an ideal product. Shame this doesn't work with Windows 10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Device! I bought this today (25/3/17) and from the other reviews was expecting problems with the software from other reviews but installed like a dream on Win 10. Programmed it in under a minute and its Brill - up to 8 messages with lots of effects and timings. A bargain @ £9 - I am expecting some fun times ahead with this device - mind you I am quite a sad individual!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea but doesn't work with mac OS There's nothing on the packaging about system requirements but I just emailed technical support after reading some of the FAQ on here. These badges are not compatible with mac OS. Very disappointed as I'd bought these as Christmas presents for the kids and will now have to return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little product bought it a day ago, works great and looks great. easy to use aswell. the driver disk was empty but it was really easy to go onto maplin website and download the drivers off there. all for £12 will be great for advertising the car club i am with. I love the feature of playing all the options in a line one after another, looks great and will buy more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine, but suspicious software I installed the software on Windows10 (32 bit version) - both the driver and badge main software install fine, and the device itself works perfectly, BUT the main program (badge.exe) installs itself and it's data files in the c:\windows directory, and can't be uninstalled via it's own uninstaller! Dodgy!

HOW CAN I DOWNLOAD THE A15NF MODEL SO THE BADGE WILL RECEIVE MY TEXT. I HAVE THE LINE BUT CANT SEE ANY DOWNLOAD BUTTON

Asked by: THOMAS
As explained in the comprehensive instruction manual https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/A15NF-User-Manual-9787.pdf you press the SEND button to upload the messages to the badge. As long as the drivers and software have been installed correctly and you have selected the right com port it will send the message to the badge.

Am I missing something? I cannot see a statement about how long this device will run (at each power level) on a full charge. Puzzled that nobody seems to haqve asked this. Also, is the battery lithium?

Asked by: TimJim
Setting the brightness to 25% the unit ran for 24 hours from a full charge. Setting the brightness to 50% the unit ran for 21 hours from a full charge. more test results to follow

Is it possible for each message to be separate rather than scrolling from one to the next to the next and so on and then being able to choose the message to display? Which software should I download for Windows 10?

Asked by: Arnie
Yes with the correct config, You can manual select different messages with a button on the back of the item.
