    • ★★★★★ 1 important tweak and it works great

    Review by Eric B on January 11, 2021

    The Ugly Box does work well. The only problem I've found lies with the leads to the coin and catalyst. Out of the box, the catalyst alligator clip last only a few cleaning sessions before it fell apart. I went to the auto parts store and picked up 2 larger alligator clip leads that had thicker wire. Using these new leads makes a HUGE difference. The voltage is much stronger and the clips do not fall apart (Not yet at least)
    • ★★★★★ Great starter kit

    Q: Is there an adapter for this to use with a standard wall outlet so I don't have to use batteries?

    A: Sorry, there is not, it is not designed to work at that type of voltage.
