YANGHX Floating Globe: Magnetic Levitation Globe

YANGHX Floating Globe

Introduction

In the immortal words of Julius Caeser “Experience is the teacher of all things”. This is true because nobody understands a situation better than someone who’s been there already and with companies bringing forth products to make our everyday life more comfortable, the dilemma induced can be colossal.

Luckily for you, we at Terra-X take time to bring forth tech reviews, so you can easily decide if it’s worth it. So, join me as I give an honest review of YANGHX Levitation Floating Globe (4 inches).



  • YANGHX Floating Globe

Review

To put it simply, it is a globe which floats and does so using maglev (to know more about maglev click here) to give you the feeling of seeing the Earth seemingly rotating on its axis. In this review, we’ll be getting to know its design/appearance, build quality, dimensions/weight, power supply and sales /packaging.

1 – Design and Appearance

The 4-inch globe, which is a colourful and detailed representation of the Earth comes with a ring-shaped base which is the part responsible for the globe’s ability to float.

It is designed in such a way that the globe suspends under the confinements of its base with the inside of the globe containing magnets top and bottom which cooperate with the base’s magnet to keep it suspended about 0.4 inches to 0.8 inches high not just made to levitate above it as with most maglev tech, it equally has LED lights which can be turned on in the dark to make for awesome scenery.

The ring-shaped base contains a multi functional power button responsible for switching the base on and equally for turning on the LED lights when pressed once and twice respectively. This multi-functional button is rather convenient.

2 – Build Quality of the YANGHX Floating Globe

The material used to make the system is called ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) to make it portable and tough so it doesn’t break on any given impact on the base in the case of a failure in placing the globe properly or an accidental knockdown.

3 – Dimensions Weight

The globe diameter is 4 inches and the entire product’s dimensions are 9.4 x 4.7 x 9.4 inches. The product weighs in at roughly 0.6kg.

4 – Power Supply System

The power supply system comprises of a conducting wire and an adapter which can support alternating currents between 100-240 V and produces a direct current of 12V. There’s the secret to this magic trick as the magnetic system behind it is electrically controlled.

Sales And Packaging

The package type is a gift box which contains the following:

  • 1 globe
  • 1 base
  • 1 AC power charger adapter
  • 1 user manual

Getting Started With The YANGHX Floating Globe

Before you can have your own floating world you must have to set it up. However, before I walk you through the steps you must know a few things:

  • Due to the whole system containing very powerful magnets, it’s best to keep sensitive things like credit cards and pacemakers well clear of the system.
  • The system must be placed on a flat smooth surface to ensure it doesn’t tilt and fall due to it being on an uneven surface.
  • Don’t be discouraged if you can’t get it done on your first try keep pushing and it will eventually succeed.

Time Needed : 10 minutes

OK then without further ado, let’s go through a step by step guide to getting your floating world up and floating.

  1. Power On

    Turn on the power and place the base horizontally on the table (or any flat and smooth surface).

  2. Place Within

    Hold the globe from the center of the base and gradually take it to the top of the base making sure the globe is still horizontal.

  3. Keep Adjusting

    When the globe is about 0.8 inches below the top (or when you begin to feel a strong force push towards the globe, slowly release your hands.

  4. Release to Levitate

    If you feel the globe has shifted in the wrong direction you can adjust it by hand until you feel there aren’t any more problems, then you can let go.

What Users May Not Like

The globe spins faster than expected which isn’t something someone who just wants to enjoy the scenery would love.
