Absolutely AWFUL...JUNK!!!!! Did nothing it was supposed to do. It actually did not rotate the mobile but rocked back and forth. No spinning. The hanger did not hold and dropped the mobile to the ground damaging an expensive mobile.
Hang your mobile from this motorized spinner for continuous movement. The energy-efficient mobile motor gives frequent impulses of energy that allows the mobile to spin without stopping for up to four months. Spins at about 20 rpm.
4" in diameter by 2.5" tall.
Requires 3 AA batteries (not included).
I really wanted the electric motor, because I can't be climbing up on a tall ladder to turn the battery operated one on and off.... The creator of the dancing helix mobile told me this new battery operated model will operate in the "on" position 24/7 for at least six months..... So I'll wait and see.... If it does, I'll return and give this a FAMTASTIC rating..... But I'm doubtful.
This motor works nicely with my dancing helix mobile. Pretty easy to use. Good service.
Very disappointed that the on/off switch is on the top of the device. This means that I will have to get a ladder to take it down from the ceiling every time I want to turn it on and off. As a result, I have not taken it out of the packaging and want to know if you have a device that has the on/off switch on the side, like the one that I used to have. I want to return the one I ordered -- too much trouble !!!
This is the second Orbiter Motor I've purchased for my mobile. The first broke after about two years. The wires connecting the batteries disconnected and the batteries corroded inside the unit. I was able to clean the batteries off and insert new batteries several times but the last time the unit was totally broken and could not be fixed. I did not know how to reconnect the wires since it seemed to require soldering. Batteries do not last three months in the unit, 3-4 weeks was my experience no matter what type or how expensive of a battery I used. It is quiet, looks good, and twirls nicely. It's just the battery box that may need some tweaking to extend the life of the unit.
