The Lantern Ball / The Lantern Ball functions

The Lantern Ball

The Lantern Ball functions as an energy efficient toy for pets to play with. It follows the principle of electromagnetic induction. When the ball rolls, the back and forth movement of the magnet inside the ball’s internal metal coil induces a current. The current illuminates the ball. In addition, the energy-storing device can preserve excessive energy and release to give a persistent light.
Imagine, how sweet the scenery is when you are resting in the yard watching your cute pets playing with the shiny ball in the moonlight!
