3D Laser Crystal Display Base, retail $6.50
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 07-12-08

The 3D Laser Crystal Display Base is a lighted base you can set on a dresser or shelf to put transparent or translucent glass or plastic objects on, and it will "uplight" them with 14 LEDs (7 white and 7 blue). These LEDs fade in and out, so the piece you put on this base will slowly and smoothly alternate between a fairly deep blue to a cool white and back again.

It comes in a plastic body with a brushed silver (matte) finish, and the platform you place objects on is glass.


To use this lighted base, feed it first (see directly below), and then you can go to town.

Place it on a sturdy shelf, dresser, or other flat area, set one or more transparent or translucent glass or plastic objects on it, then slide the little black slide switch on the side of the product toward the rear (assuming you set the base in such a manner that the switch is on the right hand side of the product's body).

To turn it off, slide the same switch toward the front (toward you) - also assuming that you set the base down so that the switch is on the right hand side of the body.

To change the batteries, turn the unit upside-down and unclip & remove the battery door. Very gently place the battery door on the floor, use your foot to slide it to the door leading downstairs, and very firmly kick it down the stairs so that the hungry, hungry piss ants will think it's something yummy for their little insect tummies, drag it to the nest, present it to the queen, who then finds it unpalatable so she just squats over it and goes potty on it and instructs the worker ants to do the same...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove the three used AA cells from the compartment, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert three new AA cells, orienting each one so that its flat end (-) negative faces the spring for it in each chamber.

Place the battery door back on, and press in on it gently until it clicks into place.
Aren't you glad you didn't kick that battery door down the stairs with all those ants with full bladders now?

Unable to measure current usage due to how the product functions.

This light base is designed to be used as a decorative fixture indoors and not manhandled, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the toliet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, let my housemate's citty kats go to the litterbox on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a small claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata (pronounced like "cannonada"), drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (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 (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the 3D Laser Crystal Display Base's web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight.

The light base's LEDs are quite bright; it should have no problems whatsoever in illuminating ("uplighting") whatever you set on it.

The glass portion of the unit measures 5.0" (127mm) long by 1.75" (44mm) wide.
The lighted portion measures ~3.85" (~98mm) long by ~0.60" (~15mm) wide.

Normally, a photograph of the product lighting something would appear here, but everything
that might have been suitable has been packed away for a move to take place on 08-01-08.

I cannot provide it in other formats, so please do not ask.

***IMPORTANT!!!*** Even off-axis, the LEDs were too bright for the camera; the "fade" sequence isn't all that obvious here.

Test unit was found on Ebay, was purchased on 07-06-08, and was received on the afternoon of 07-10-08.

Product was 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.
