After 4 years of development and a successful Kickstarter campaign in which we raised over $143,000, we are thrilled to share the World's most feature-loaded color changing flashlight, the RGB Critter. Features include, programmable color modes, sound reactivity, and a built-in accellerometer that allows the RGB Critter to change colors when you move.
The RGB Critter is powered by an 18650 battery (included) that can easily be swapped out with a spare battery. The 18650 battery can be charged while within the Critter using the microUSB located at the back end of the flashlight. At full brightness, the RGB Critter can be powered 3 hours with the color white and up to 9 hours with one of the 32 other solid color options.
The RGB Critter has a removable end cap that twists off. This is where you will plug in your micro-USB charging cable when you are ready to charge your flashlight. With the end cap removed, you can twist-on the Critter Connector which allows you to connect 2 RGB Critters back-to-back! See theDouble Sided Critter pagefor more information.
Available for pre-order now! Your order will ship February 2021.

First, of it's kind, the RGB Critter features a sound reactivity system that allows you to adjust the sensitivity to match the sound intensity of your environment.
MOVEMENT REACTIVE (accelerometer)

LIGHT PAINTER'S DELIGHT
The RGB Critter'sMomentary Functionallows light painters to turn off the Critter by simply holding a button. When the button is released, the light turns on. When you hold the button (light off), the Critter will pause your current preset or customized mode and resume the mode once you release the button (light on). You can use the Momentary Function at any point the Critter is on (solid colors, color modes, any other special feature).
