What makes them work?
The Mechanical Butterflies
Use a New Technology that uses a muscle like wire
or memory wire found in modern robotics. This single strand
of wire is made of a special nickel-titanium alloy. The material
contracts, like a muscle, when heated by an electric current
and relaxes again when the current ceases.
is a complete butterfly?
This is the Initial
Electronic Butterfly that comes complete in the
package with everything you need to plug it in and make it work.
It comes with an AC adaptor and over ten feet of thin wire.
is an Add-on?
An Add-on Butterfly
comes packaged just like the complete and has a "Y"
plug splitter power up to three add-ons and one complete kit
by only one electrical outlet and AC adaptor.
they be plugged in all the time?
Yes! The Wings in Motion moving butterflies use a miniscule
amount of electricity and can be safely plugged in almost all
the time. This is also the case when you have additional add-ons
strung together powered by one circuit.
they use a lot of electricity?
No! The the wire "muscle" used to make the butterfly
move uses a very small amount of power. Even if left on 24 hours
a day, it will cost pennies a week to operate. It is one of
few products available that use such a low amount of power.
type of current is needed to operate them?
AC 110 Volt 60H USA standard electrical outlet.
they battery operated?
We offer an accessory Battery
Pack that will allow your butterfly to work for
a few hours. The problem is that after a while as they get use
the batteries start losing power and this causes the wings to
slow down the fluttering frequency. You can purchase the battery
packs separately and they will work with either a complete or
the generate any heat?
No! Even after hours or days of use, they do not get hot or
create any type of fire hazard.
they make any noise or sound?
No! They are completely silent when they are in operation. You
can place them in a bedroom or any location where complete silence
is necessary. This is one of the very few products you can purchase
that does not become annoying over time. The butterflies will
add continual enjoyment indefinitely.
many butterflies can be placed on one circuit?
It is recommended that you only have up to four butterflies
powered from one AC adapter. This would be the same as one complete
kit and three Add-on
Kits. This is the limit because when you string
more butterflies than this there is not enough supply current.
You can use power strips and plug in as many AC adaptors as
they will hold when setting up large displays.
Our butterflies are great for Office
and Home Decorating.
8) How long is the wire from
the transformer to the butterfly?
The butterlfy wiring is over 10 feet long from the AC
Adaptor to the butterfly. This is split in two
parts with 5 feet from the butterfly to the cocoon shaped circuit
female end. The other 5 feet is from the AC adaptor to the male
end of the plug.
9) What are the size of the

locations are smaller or larger depending on the conditions.

wing tip to wing tip.

many times do they move their wings?
The moving butterflies flap their wings 6-7 times a minute.
They were designed to emulate a real butterfly as it airs its
wings out while clinging to an object or plant. This calming,
graceful movement is what makes them so realistic and soothing
to watch. When you have multiple butterflies strung together
their wings all flutter independently. This makes for an amazing
butterfly garden effect .
happens if the wings don't flap correctly? Is the unit defective?
Sometimes during shipping or unpacking, a wing may get pushed
downward. To Fix
It, gently pull the wing up with your fingers.
Sometimes the wind, person or animal may brush up against your
butterfly on display. If you notice the wing is bent down and
not flapping, don't worry, just pop the wing back in place,
it is very easy to do.
the butterflies hard to hook up?
They are very easy to hook up and are a lot of fun in the process.
You simply take the butterfly out of the package make sure the
wings are in the "up" position. Then take the tiny
wire legs coming from the bug body and wrap the wires around
an object.You can also use clear tape or a safety-pin to attach
the butterfly legs in place. The butterflies are light and will
usual stay where you securely attached. Meticulously hide the
wiring for best visual effect, then plug the adaptor to any
outlet or power strip. String along your add-on kits in this
same manner. You can be as creative as you want when setting
up beautiful multiple butterfly displays. If you have any trouble
hooking up your butterflies please contact us for assistance.
We assure you it is very easy and you shouldn't have any problems.
15) How do you attach the butterflies?
The butterflies have tiny wire legs that can be wrapped around
most any object or you can use clear tape to secure the lightweight
body to virtually any thing.
16) Can they be hung on a wall
or placed into a floral arrangement?
They can be hung from a wall and
it is best when doing so to find a way to hide the wiring to
make appear as re alistic as possible.
We do not recommend hanging it by the electric wire as it will
not look as good. When attaching the electronic butterflies
Arrangements it is preferred you use silk or artificial
plants. If you use live plants the attached butterfly may stress
the plant and if you water them this may be a fire hazard situation
since they are electronic. Just use common sense and you will
not have a problem.
the butterflies be placed outdoors?
No! The electronic butterflies were not intended for outdoor
use. The butterflies may be affected by weather conditions causing
them not to work and can be accidentally ruined. The wings will
fade over time ifexposed to direct sunlight. The wings are very
easy to change if they get damaged or decide to replace them.
If you have an outdoor event having the butterfliesa out in
the sunlight for a day of nice shiney weather should be fine.

and special events. Please contact us with your specific requirements
for there use.
