Yep, they got my attention with the gun being pink, but then to find out it was cordless - for me that was perfect! I live overseas in Germany, so anytime I wanted to use my American glue gun, I had to find a transformer just to plug it in. So, I broke down and bought a German one, the cord was long and bulky, it wouldn't stand up and it just became a hassle. Now, I have the perfect gun, it's easy to use and comes with a neat self-attached stand. I just saw the other day that there is even colored glue sticks you can use with this too! Another added plus - things just keep getting better and better! Just a note, if you want to take this with you to a crop, take out the batteriest before you back it up, this gun can get really hot and you don't need an accident if this came on accidently while moving around in your bag!
I have read the previous reviews about battery life. The type of batteries used makes a lot of difference. The batteries best for this product are alkaline batteries. Using heavy duty or some other types of batteries is not the best choice for this glue gun.
This light weight glue gun is great to take along to card making parties or to do whatever real quick. It has one
drawback - the batteries "can" occasionally fly out of the
gun while using it. (I just tape it on and I'm good to go.)
Glue guns are just for crafts, and I've found all sorts of projects I can use this for...particularly since I'm not tethered to a chord. Replacing batteries is easy, but be sure to buy good batteries that will last. It's so good, it doesn't need it's own stand, and when using it for small iems, like scrapbooking, card making, putting trim on small items, it is best to use a craft mat. Absolutely love it.
I had to have this glue gun. I have heard that the batteries tend to run out fast and will try removing them after projects or move to rechargeable.
The glues sticks & batteries are easy to insert,takes a couple of minutes to warm up, but be ready with what ever it is you wish to adhere. Love its kick stand and I can make endless paper flowers and not fret they will unravel.
