Lights florescent lights when they are near. Very cool!
Comments about Spencer's Sound Activated Plasma Light Ball - 8 Inch:
The plasma ball is all I hoped it would be. Well constructed, lots of fun. It will light florescent light bulbs when they are brought near it, if they are pointing toward it, not tangent to it, so that the potential difference from the plasma bulb is significant. I love this product.

Bought as a Christmas present, arrived broken. One phone call and customer support made everything right. The plasma ball is great, provides plenty of surprises and excitement, excellent item.

EM waves from plasma ball reduce pain
By Retired Engineer
from Salt Lake City, Utah
I bought a number of balls for friends and family because we heard the waves coming off the plasma balls reduce chronic pain. So far that seems true. We put a ball next to bed or place where one spends a lot of time and expose our selves for hours a day. One ball's glue holding ball to base came lose. I fixed it. No problems with other balls. Great product
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've wanted one of these since my early teens. It's just a cool thing to have and I can't walk past it without stopping to fool with it.

Works perfect, there are 3 switch settings off, on, and sound sensitive... It doesnt react very well to sound but if you place it on a subwoofer the effect is pretty cool and works the way it should... Cheaper than gettin those water speakers i hear nothing but bad things about... Plus its fun to jus play with... Keep metal objects(rings, watches, bracelets) off hands while touching the dome so you dont get shocked through as it is electricty flowing in a glass bowl lol ... Flourescent lights will turn on like magic when held near it too!!

Everything was perfect. The plasma ball was actually bigger than expected :-) and it wasn't broken, came in good packaging. Everything was the best it could be.

About Me Nerd
Sound activation is poor due to design after disassembly I noticed the tiny microphone sits on top of the circuit board facing away from any opening to receive sound,I de-soldered it and moved it to the bottom of the board in the same circuit path drilled a hole on the bottom cover below the mic.It works much better now.
Granddaughter loves it!

Purchased this for a 63 year old science nerd uncle for Christmas and he LOVED it. Price was excellent for quality. Loved the size. Other plasma balls sell at retail chains for the same price and they are the mini versions, not this large version. There are two cons, hence the 4 stars out of 5. It's supposed to be sound activated, but it barely reacts at all when you put your lips to it and yell. When its next to sub-woofers and blasting music then it's fine. I think for a sound activated item it should react better. I certainly wouldn't consider this a sound activated item since it barely reacts to a lot of sounds..maybe we just got a bad ball but I did read other reviews with the same complaint. The only other con was shipping. I own a business where I am constantly using different shipping methods and services, and the price was a tad high for the size and weight (almost $10), and took just shy of a couple of weeks to be processed, ship, and arrive.... much longer than any other store I ordered online from at the same time for holiday purchases. Shipping should have been much quicker. Other than that no complaints about the product. It works perfectly, and looks amazing in pitch dark. The lighting is great. Dogs even love to watch it. At first thought the plastic parts seemed a bit cheapy when he unwrapped it, but once it turned on none of that really mattered.
Fun To Watch - Sound Part Doesn't Work
from Fort Myers, FL
The sound activated portion of this globe doesn't work unless you physically smack the globe - not sound responsive. It's fun to watch, though, especially at night.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not Enough Bang For the Buck
from McKinney, Texas
I bought 2 of these to work with my Halloween (Frankenstein's Laboratory) effects. I loved the fact that the globes are larger than any I've seen! In a dark location you could see the plasma strings, but if there was additional lighting, they were hard to see. I recommend that they be used in a dark or near dark location. Overall, they work as they should, and I will move them to my media room next.

Easy to set-up - 60 secs. Does not pulse to the music as advertised. That was a big feature for me. I am disappointed it performs so poorly in this area.

Wouldn't waste my time again
from Lebanon, Indiana
My ball lights up green like its supposed to but coil that conducts the plasma only turns purple at the top. It doesn't shoot off the streams of plasma like it's supposed too. Very disappointed. Would not recommend.

Bought this as a Christmas gift and my poor kid opened it happily, took it out of the package to plug it in, and FAIL! It did not work!! It also was very light and felt very cheaply made.
