Fascinating and fun. USB Plasma Ball is fascinating to watch and even more fun to play with --Placing a finger tip on the glass creates an attractive spot for the energy to flow, because the conductive human body is more easily polarized than the dielectric material around the electrode providing an alternative discharge path having less resistance. The Plasma Ball is great for kids of all ages. Whether you are a fun loving work professional or a parent who wants their kids to learn about static electricity without the need to google Tesla's high voltage plasma globe. This is a great year round gift idea.

The base on my model was blue, which isn't a big deal but I assumed I would get a black one as the picture shows. I'm not sure the "Sound" feature works very well at all, but I haven't tried it near any exceptionally loud sources of noise to be completely certain.
It functions properly on both battery and USB power, but produces very few, extremely weak "arcs" that are difficult to see in a room with average lighting (and impossible to see outside). Touching the orb in a single spot will produce a single, brighter arc, but it certainly looks nothing like the stock photo.
For a cheap toy, it's not bad. Just don't expect a bright performance.
It's the perfect size for my desk at work to break up the monotony of the job.
Yes, the stand is plastic as some reviewers have complained about, but what do you expect for around nine bucks.
I like it!
Judging by pictures, it looks exactly the same to me as other listings on Amazon with similar prices (about $10 or less). One listing in particular looks exactly the same but the design on the box is different according to a picture. Most likely the same factory is making them but I certainly don't know for sure.
As a kid I always wanted a big plasma globe. This scratches the itch. It isn't big but it's a nice little size
The light in some of the customer pictures looks faint, but in a slightly dim room it looks pretty darn good. I estimate there are about 16 thin moving blue tendrils with pink ends (where they touch the globe) at all times. When touching the globe, there are up to three thick tendrils that will follow your fingers. The more fingers that are used, the more the blue tendrils tend to "flash" around and they become thinner. It's also neat to look at the source of the tendrils at the center when not touching the globe. The tendrils extend from the pink colored source and move around it like little tornadoes.
Mine works as expected. Like my other PC lighting, I don't use it all the time. It's probably been active for around 6-8 hours. I keep the USB plugged in and use the ON/OFF switch located on the plastic base. My PC case is black so this looks nice, with it's black base, sitting on top.
The USB is removable from the main unit and, since the box mentions a DC power adapter, I suppose the right type could be used. I have not tried to do so. (As advertised, this did not come with one included).
For under $10 it is easily a nice little buy. Ideally, I'd like a comparable product with a more durable base than plastic but for that I would expect to pay more. For what I paid and received, I rate this at 5 stars.
All said, I would buy it again. It is a fun distraction at work and a conversation piece when people drop by my desk.
This is a remarkable price to get to pretend to be a wizard at home.
