Problem with electric lock pick resolved – Electronic Power Lock Pick Gun with W/L LED Illumination (8-Piece Set) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Unit does actually work pretty good, but see the cons.....
Cons:
Battery is a 3.6v rechargable. Motor is a 7.2-9v motor. With a variable power supply, the motor will not even try to turn under 6v.
Other:
This is my second unit from the website. I returned the first one because it did not work. I removed the battery pack and substituted cells which totalled 9v. The unit now works fine as well as the LED. One could make an external power pack with an adjustable output to regulate the cycles of the pick unit.
Bottomline:
Unit works with some modifications. Purchaser will have to decide if they are willing to make the mods. before buying. I think this was most likely the problem with the first one I purchased, but I did not take it apart to find out.
