The Newisland Lightning is a high-quality 3x3 speedcube marketed by Newisland. It rotates very smoothly right out of the box, and comes pre-lubricated from the factory. It also comes with a mesh cube bag inside the sturdy box, as well as a maintenance/solution manual, replacement edge/corner, and an extra set of factory stickers.

Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

If possible I would like to rate this cube negative infinite. This cube pops and corner twists too many times and the company said they included spare pieces but they didn't!!! On their business card they said to email them but there was no email address. This is the worst cube ever.
The price is definitely too high, but this is a very good cube. I'm truly puzzled (pun intended) by almost every review I've seen saying that this is literally a Thunderclap. Yes, the turning is very similar (but less fluent IMO) but the pieces are literally nothing alike. The Thunderclap has sharp corners on each center piece, while this cube is closer to a GANs circular centerpiece. Mine even came with circular center stickers. Anyway, out of the box it needed a bit of tensioning to stabilize, but after that a bit of lube it's really shaping up to be awesome.
As others have stated, this cube is expensive, it is good, but expensive. Turns well out of the box and can corner cut 45.
Well it is a thunderclap, but if you like the unboxing experience and loose parts, I recommend this.
This cube is good but the price is a real setback. I would just go with the thunderclap.
It's the same as the thunderclap. Just with extra pieces and a set of poor quality stickers. Not worth the price.
