    Great product until battery stops working

    • Written by YALDA C from LONDON

    My 8 year old son has really enjoyed playing with this, however the battery stopped holding charge - it simply flashes red and green forever. Having spoken with the company UBTECH I was told that this commonly happens and the battery will need to be replaced. There is no UK supplier of the battery which in the US is $22, but they put me in contact with their China office who offered it for $75!!! PLUS SHIPPING. At that price I could buy a whole new robot but then I wont because the battery wouldn't last on that one either. A rip off!

    Great product!

    This kit is a great intro to coding! The app is really well designed with 3D instructions which meant it was easy to navigate and build the robot. It took just under an hour to make him, which isn’t bad. It’s good fun for kids to see it come to life and you can make it perform crazy dances and things either by coding it or using pre-programmed movements on the app. I would try the newer Tankbot kit as well based on this experience. I’m not sure what problem the previous reviewer had with the battery but I haven’t had any issues.

    Don't buy it

    I bought this as the main present for my daughter for Christmas. What was supposed to be a special gift that we would build together and play with - is still not working two weeks later. The battery doesn't work which I suspect from their website is a common problem.

    It's not worth the money and has left us very frustrated and disappointed.
