AOAM's Warranty does not cover damage to the RGB Critter caused by third party adaptors or accessories.
PWM + ANALOG TECHNOLOGY *Patent Pending*
The RGB Critter includes our patent pending technology that allows the Critter to drive the LED using either Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) or Analog technologies. All other RGB LED flashlights drive their LED(s) using PWM, which creates unsaturated colors and an undesirable "strobing" effect that can clearly be seen in light paintings (long exposure photography).
The main benefit to using the PWM option are the beautiful "tracers" (small flashes of different colors) that can be seen in our BitWhip® Fiber Optic Whip and Fyber Kit products, both of which are both made up of end-glow fiber optics.
The RGB Critter's Analog option provides a direct electrical current to the LED, which results in the most pure and rich colors possible. If you are a light painter, there is no doubt that you need the option to drive the LED using an Analog signal so that you can create the most vibrant photos possible.

The quality is amazing, really feels and works like a professional piece of kit. The light and computer are so powerful in the critter 2.0
This critter is lovely and bright, totally the best for light painting.
This review is long overdue, I've had my Critter for probably 3 months now and I've got to say that this has to be the BEST flashlight I've used in my short time as a light painter. It eliminates the need for attaching color filters in my plexi, the various colors and speed modes are easy to navigate once you learn how to do it. I'm actually about to buy another one as I'm writing this review. Big thanks to the AOAM crew for all that you do for the light painting community.
