Important Information About The RGB Critter 1.0
If your RGB Critter shipped prior to May 22, 2022, then you have an RGB Critter 1.0 Flashlight. If your RGB Critter shipped after this date, then you have an RGB Critter 2.0, and your flashlight can be updated using the RGB Critter 2.0 firmware (see links at the bottom of the page).
All RGB Critter 1.0's can be upgraded to our new product, the RGB Critter 2.0. Because it's been less than a year since the release of 1.0, we are offering a free service to upgrade your RGB Critter 1.0 to 2.0. In order to receive this upgrade, you will need to send your RGB Critter to our facility in Oregon, USA. Once your RGB Critter has been upgraded, you can update your RGB Critter 2.0 from home going forward using the 2.0 firmware, USB port, and a PC computer with Windows OS installed.
