Last updated 01-19-08

This product gives you a mirrored surface to put clear glass or crystal articles on, and have them slowly rotate while 4 colored LEDs shine up through the lamp's center and shine into the object you place on it. The LEDs can be run through a number of different patterns, selectable through a red pushbutton on the side of the lamp. You can also select whether the mirrored plate rotates or not.

This product also operates from battery power, though the mirrored platform will not rotate when powered in this fashion.

The Crystal Rotary Slide Show was not found on the Longs Drugs website; the link to their website above simply leads to their front door for that very reason.


To use this lamp, set it somewhere flat, plug the wall-wart's cord into the receptacle for it on the side of the lamp, and set your glass or crystal on top of it. Plug the square thing into a standard 2- or 3-slot 120VAC outlet.

There is a small black slide switch directly below the red button on the side of the base near the bottom. Slide it all the way to the left to turn both the LEDs & the motor on, slide it all the way to the right to turn just the LEDs on (the motor remains deactivated), and slide it to the center position to turn the entire unit (lights & motor) off.

You can select from a number of different "light shows" (7 or 8) from the LEDs by pushing & then releasing the red button on the side of the lamp.

When operated from battery power, the mirrored platform will not rotate regardless of the switch setting; the unit does not turn off either for some reason. To turn the unit off when using battery power, either insert the AC adapter's plug (the adapter may be unplugged here) or remove one of the AAA cells from the battery compartment.

Turn the base upside down. Slide the battery door in the direction of the gap at one end, and swing it up. This door should stay attached.

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

Insert three new AAA cells, orienting each cell so its flat-end (-) negative faces the spring for it in each chamber. Once the unit is full (three cells), swing the battery door down, and slide it in the opposite direction that you slid it to just prior to changing the batteries.

Set it back where you picked it up, and place whatever object you had there before back on its mirrored platform.

To operate it from AC power, plug the small plug on the end of the AC adapter's cord into the receptacle for it on the side of the unit near the bottom, and plug the larger end into any standard (in north America anyway) 110 volts to 130 volts 2- or 3- slot household AC receptacle (outlet).

This product is meant to be used as a decorative lamp in a dry area, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the toilet 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 large claw hammer in order to smash 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 perform other indecencies on it that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

So far, it is working much better than the 7 LED Night Light Turntable for Crystal, which received the dreadful toliet rating ("0 Stars - Piss On It") because that one turned out to be a real "feline flagellated stool sample female parent inseminator" (potty words replaced with innocous ones - the correct acronym is PWPOSMF).

The mirrored platform was noticeably moved to one side of the base itself upon receipt, however it was a very easy fix to move it back to the center where it belongs.

It is not known where the product was made.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I wanted to publish it on this web page.

The AC adapter outputs 6 volts AC at 600mA.
