By using the motion of the guitar pick to activate the lights, the Firefly Pick accommodates fast and slow action as well as rapid changes in tempo, and always create a light show perfectly in time with the music. The Firefly Pick is powered by a rechargeable ultra-thin lithium-ion battery, and is compatible with standard USB micro plugs. (Read More)
