Shocking Tanks packaging
By Ken Keesling
Shocking Fun’s Shocking Tanks are a great gift, with a “shocking” surprise, for the geek on your shopping list.
Read my Geek Gift review of this product.
The packaging was very flashy with bright colors and large lettering.
There are lots of warnings on the packaging.
One more, in case you missed the first.
A third warning for good measure.
Top w/cardboard off
For shipping, the antennae are taped to the top plastic.

The big red button at the rear of the tanks is a reset button for the lights.
If you want to fool your friends, make sure they don’t see this.
Three AA batteries required.
The tanks take three AA batteries. While the tanks are shipped with batteries, they recommend they be changed immediately. Personally, I didn’t have any problems with the included batteries. I did have extras on hand, just in case, though.
Three AAA batteries required.
The controllers require three AAA batteries. These are included, too, and come with the same recommendations as the tank’s batteries.

Here you can see that a LED on the front of the controller comes on when you switch it to high.
