Need to paint some walls and stumbled across this on Lazada. Seems to good to be true

Is it a gimmick? Yes

will it work? Maybe 

Do tell if you decide to buy it.

I use to manufacture something like that, even applied for a patent but didn't pursue as it doesn't work, mine was copied by a lot of Chinese, maybe this one is made in China as well, just a gimmick ..... commercial/video well done but misleading

"if it seems to be good to be true"......you know the rest 😀

 

I tried the "pad" system once, that worked really well on flat surface or over paper etc. great for cutting -in.

I think something like that came out in the states a long time ago about the same time as the sponge brushes.  They just made a mess, fall apart, and maybe reusable one time.

Please post the results if you buy it, I,ve been on the brink of buying it too. Can,t see why the system shouldn,t work. Dipping is a mess as often you get too much paint then as soon as you touch the wall it drips everywhere. The idea of a tank inside makes sense. So curious. 🤔

That is poor technic (over filling the paint tray) or crappie equipment or both, do it right and you don’t overload the roller
