You want to know everything about the Stellanova glow globe starry sky before you buy it? Then this review is just the thing for you. Here I inform you about advantages and disadvantages as well as quality, functionality and price-performance of the device. I also show you the scope of delivery and explain the commissioning. Additionally you will find a video presentation by the YouTube user d-keller after the conclusion.
In addition to the illuminated globe, the packaging only contains the separate 6V power supply unit with a 1.80 meter long cable. Thus the scope of delivery seems more than manageable. However, it is no longer necessary to use the globe. The operation is self-explanatory.
The commissioning of the Globus is just as simple as the scope of delivery appears. All you have to do is set it up, plug in the power supply and connect it to the power .
However, it does not have a on/off switch. In order to switch off the illuminated globe, you must always pull the plug. This can cause the problem of not being able to see that the unit is switched on in daylight. In this way, the globe can become a real power guzzler.
With a cable length of about 5.90 ft, the stars can be projected on the ceiling and wall even if the outlet is not in the immediate vicinity . But if you turn on the device, it disappoints a little, because the light source is not very strong . Therefore, I recommend that you put it into operation at a higher point such as a cabinet or table.
Unfortunately, the sharpness cannot be adjusted either. On the positive side, 88 can recognize constellations on the surface of the globe without having to connect it to the power supply. It is also positive that the pictures were labeled both in German and Latin .
The star images themselves cannot be projected, but only the individual stars. By turning the illuminated globe you can illuminate different places on the wall. It would have been desirable if the earth sphere could rotate automatically. Unfortunately, this function is not included.
Other plus points the illuminated globe can also achieve stability and processing. Once placed, it is not so easy to knock over, sits firmly and does not fall apart even with frequent use.
Nevertheless, the entire construction consists of plastic, which is why it can break relatively easily when falling from cabinets. Buyers on Amazon also report poor processing. In some cases, for example, there is a slit between the two halves of the globe through which light passes.
For a really low price and completely without shipping costs you can get the Stellanova illuminated globe starry sky already at Amazon, which convinced me of its price-performance. I couldn’t find a similarly good model in this price range.
If you are looking for a real eye-catcher for your own home, with which you can project stars on the wall at the same time, this globe from Stellanova is the best choice for you. For a fair price you get a product with a relatively high quality, super workmanship and versatile usability. Thus this illuminated globe is suitable for personal use as well as for giving on birthdays etc.
Which light source is built into the globe?
The light in the Stellanova illuminated globe starry sky is generated by a small lamp. Unfortunately, I can’t say what kind of lamp it is. On some pages it is stated that a small LED lamp was installed.
