What Type Of Robot Hands Do Others Recommend

Finishing up a robot project but struggling with useful hands.  I want to be able to pick items up at different angles, move them and put them down.  I tried a complicated hand with 5 servo's. It looks cool but doesn't work very well as a hand. I tried the old robot claws we all know and they work well but are very heavy due to the fact I have 2 HDD servo's one for wrist and one for the claw, so the arm and shoulder servo's struggle to lift the hands let alone an object. 
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a light weight but functional hands that can pick up an object from any angle?

Yeah - i wouldn't trust UBTech's marketing jargon about AI. The system uses glyphs to identify features and align it's positioning. The glyph merely execute specific instructions and the robot knows where all the stuff is. Which is why the stuff is placed perfectly each time.

Hats off to UBTech for dreaming big though - it's easy to see when people are faking it, because they can't fake it to people who have the ability to do it:D
UBtect ripped off thousands of people with there robot alfa2.including myself.many didn get there robot,and the ones who got one worked ,
about 2 months and then the server dissepear.they used crowdfunding and ripped off more then one million people.amazing that they ,
are stil making robots.

i have same robot with hands.the servo are really good.when they get hot they chut down.
you can grip something.
Is that this one @Nomad  looks like 1 servo for hand and opens and closes all at once. I must admit the 5 servo to control each separate finger is great if you want to learn binary or give someone the finger but practically I wasn't overly impressed and 2 hands chew up 10 ports on my  EZ-B.
