Thuh kompenie thaat maks thuh LED Name Card kant spel...O WAIT!!! They spelled all of the words in the name of this product "kerrektlee". And it isn't even called the "LED Name Card".
The Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle was purchased on Ebay, while I was looking for another product.

The Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle is remarkably easy to use; just pop the two included batteries in it, and program it via the three buttons on its back. It is comparable in ease to entering your initials after reaching a high score on a coin-op arcade video game like they had in the 1980s and 1990s - and probably the early-2000s too; though I have not played one of the coin-op arcade video games from this decade so I cannot confirm how high score monitoring is performed on modern equipment.

Yes, it really is that easy.

It scrolls your message in multicolored (red, yellow, and green) LED lights on its front surface; you can have up to six messages (512 characters & spaces for the first message, 256 characters & spaces for messages 2 through 6).


To use the Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle, first install the two included the batteries into it (see below), and then you'll be ready to rock.

On the back of the unit, there are three slim pushbutton switches: "ENTER/ON/OFF", "PAGE UP" (P-U), and "PAGE DOWN" (P-D). These switches have a noticeable clicking sound and a firm tactile sensation (a "click" sensation you can feel) when they are actuated, so there is no mistake when the switches are pressed.

Press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button to turn the product on; press it again to turn the product off.

When the badge is on (displaying a message), pressing the P-U or P-D buttons selects switch display info (message you want to display; 1-6 - "SWITCH"), input text mode ("INPUT"), display scrolling speed ("SPEED"), or LED brightness control ("LUM").

The first option you'll want to select is "SWITCH" mode to select which block of memory you want to use to store a message. When "SWITCH" is scrolling on the unit's display, press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button, and then the "P-U" or "P-D" buttons to select page 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. Press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button to lock in your choise.

When the badge is on (displaying a message), press the "P-U" or "P-D" buttons to select input text mode ("INPUT"); press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button, and you'll be in text entry mode.

Change the letter on the right side of the display using the "P-U" and "P-D" buttons; use the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button to lock that character into the unit's memory and move to the next. When you need to add a space (such as between words so it "doesn'tlooklikethis"), just press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button without first pressing any of the other buttons. Viola, a space. If you make a mistake and need to delete a character, press & hold the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button for three seconds. When you are finished entering your message, either press and hold the "P-D" button for three seconds or wait (do not press any buttons) for ~10 seconds. The message you entered will then automatically scroll from right to left on the unit's LED display.

Uppercase and lowercase letters, the characters above the number keys (!, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, and )), the numerals 0-9, and various punctuation characters are all available.

In this example, I am inputting the phrase "{vulgar term for urine} Off, {vulgar term for urine} Ant!" into the product.

To select scrolling speed, turn the unit on, press the "P-U" or "P-D" buttons until "SPEED" is scrolling on the unit's display, press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button, and then the "P-U" or "P-D" buttons to select speeds 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9. Press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button to lock in your choise.
1 is the slowest, 9 is the fastest.

To select brightness, turn the unit on, press the "P-U" or "P-D" buttons until "LUM" is scrolling on the unit's display, press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button, and then the "P-U" or "P-D" buttons to select brightnesses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9. Press the "ENTER/ON/OFF" button to lock in your choise.
1 is the dimmest, and 9 is the brightest.

This badge is intended to be used as a belt buckle, however since I have just one belt and I do not feel like destroying it, there will not be any photographs of it being used on a belt...O WAIT!!! I didn't have to actually *DESTROY* my belt to show it being used with one.

Photograph of it being used for its intended purpose...as a belt buckle.

To change the batteries, remove those circular things on the back by using a coin like a US quarter as a tool to turn them approximately 1/12th of a turn counterclockwise, remove them, and set them aside.

If there are batteries in there, remove and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Orienting each cell button-end (-) negative down, slide them underneath the metal contact in each chamber.

Place the circular battery doors back over the openings, orienting them so the little arrows on them face the circular symbol with the small raised button in the center, gently press in on them, and again (while still gently pressing), using a quarter or a similar instrument as a tool, turn them clockwise ~1/12th of a turn clockwise until they stop.

In my unit, there were a pair of plastic tits inside each compartment that I promptly broke off while installing the batteries, but the unit appears to function correctly even though the hungry, hungry garbage can now has four small rectangular pieces of plastic in it.

This is a digital scrolling badge, not a flashlight. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannonada (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout, with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannonada is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that I might inflict upon a flashlight. So this section of its web page will be rather bare, when compared to this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle has 21 columns of 7 multicolored LEDs, for 147 LEDs total.

One of the first things I do when I test a programmable message thing is to see if there's an onboard censor, and there isn't. I input "{vulgar term for a man or woman who acts as a penis vaccume}! {vulgar term for male urinator/inseminator - rhymes with stick} {vulgar slang term for homosexual male - rhymes with the last name of AFV host Bob Sagget; or an archaic term that used to describe a bundle of sticks}" into the Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle, and it happily spouted off the stream of obcenities.
I soon changed it back to "TIME FOR YOUR MEDS & VITES, ANGIE!" just so I wouldn't forget.

So if you have garbage mouth, potty mouth, toilet tongue, sewer mouth, sewer chute, etc. you can input dirty language into the Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle and have it spew forth with the obcenities when the product is subsequently used.

I found the unit remarkably easy to use, considering there is no computer interface or software - all of the product's functions are controlled via three buttons on the back.

This evaluation resemble the one I made for the Green LED Badge?
Thought so. It's because they're rather similar in how they're programmed, so that I could use it as a template for this one.

Row 1 (when starting with zero) - or the second row from the top if you aren't a computer programmer or a rocket scientist of the LEDs was out when I first fired it up; although this does not greatly affect the overall functionality of the unit, I'll consider the product "defective" for this website sakes.

I tried to take a photograph of the Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle while a message was scrolling, but the scrolling speed was fast enough and the camera's shutter speed was slow enough that the photograph did not come out well at all.

The plots are a lot lower than I'd prefer because the LED intensity is not that high.

Sample of the Multi-Color Scrolling LED Belt Buckle was purchased on Ebay on the evening of 02-07-08 and was received on the afternoon of 02-19-08.

Product was amost certainly made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
