"...the RGB Critter 2.0 shines brightly above the competition. At $125, more than fair-priced for what is easily one of the most comfortable, highest-quality RGB flashlights currently on the market. Definitely recommended!"

RGB Critter 2.0 Available Now!

We worked with a dedicated team of Light Painters and Flow Artists to improve the RGB Critter's UI and added a boatload of fun new features to the RGB Critter 2.0.

  • Auto-Play: Press the Rocket button 2x, and each of the presets in Mode 9 will automatically play for a specific amount of time (0.25 / 1 / 15 / 30 seconds).
  • New Presets:  -Up from 49, the RGB Critter now has 93 unique presets.
  • Adjust Preset Speeds: Permanently change the speed of any of the 93 presets by holding the Rocket button. Each 1-second hold increases the speed of the preset by 10%. Using this new functionality, you can easily customize the entire RGB Critter.
  • Momentary Press: When activated, hold the Power button to turn on the RGB Critter's LED and release to turn it off.
  • Single Click On/Off: Click the Power button 1x to turn the RGB Critter on and off. 


Raised Button Shells

The Raised Button Silicone Shells offer a new button height of +1mm above the height of the body of the Silicone Shell. This raised button height makes the buttons easier to press and find in the dark.

Over 120 Different Twist-On Accessories

The RGB Critter is threaded at the lens. Accessories from the RGB Critter product line are also threaded. You attach them to the RGB Critter by twisting them into the front end of the flashlight. When the RGB Critter is turned on, it will light up the attached accessory. Choose from 120 unique twist-on Light Painting and Flow Art accessories.


PWM + Analog Technology

The RGB Critter includes AOAM's innovative 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.

Additional Features

  • BATTERY LIFE INDICATOR: The RGB LED will display different colors to indicate the remaining battery life.
  • CONVENIENT RECHARGING: The replaceable 18650 battery is micro-USB rechargeable. When plugged into a power source, the RGB Critter's battery will fully charge then switch to direct power for continuous use. The battery will fully charge in under 2 hours when plugged into a wall outlet adapter and under 6 hours when plugged into a computer port.

Flashlight Critter

The Flashlight has not arrived yet 🙁

Useful Fun!

I wanted this tool mainly for light painting in photography. Even though I haven't had many (any) opportunities to use it for that purpose, the potential is obvious. It's well made, well thought out, and easily usable right after the first charge. Other, more complex designs can be learned as you go. The YouTube videos are - and will be - super helpful. I would have preferred to see a USB-C connector, I know before buying that it was the older-style USB-A type connection.

Being new to light paint can be daunting. Watched a lot of YouTube, spent a lot of money on Amazon. Then discovered AOM. Set me up for success. A system that requires little thougt about how to put things together, let's you spend time experimenting and being creative. Just Clicks!

Came back for more!

I've been trying exploring different tools for light painting and didn't want to fully invest in one system over another-- until I received my RGB Critter Flashlight. This is has been the perfect addition to my toolkit and I mmediately came back to purchase more attachments, I'm definitely a fan!

With the Critter Connector, you can turn your Sol Sabers into an LED Staff or double light saber toy you can duel with. The RGB Critter LED Staff is incredibly durable and designed for full contact and any drops that may occur when using it as a performance prop.
