I have an older Aqua Ball that has performed spectacularly for at least 15 years. We use it as a finger moistener and when I needed one for another desk I naturally looked for one of the same brand because it has been such a great product.
I am totally disappointed in the changes that have been made.
The liquid reservoir is super tiny now and it is now so light weight that it doesn't stay in place when you run your fingers across it and the ball doesn't roll smoothly as it does with their older version.
Would I buy this new version again? Only if I could not find anything else.
