This subforum doesn't get a lot of traffic like the other forums do but I think this question belongs here.
So I was doing some research on survival tools when I came across a pretty cool GITD product. The UVpaqlite and the Tooblite from www.uvpaqlite.com
Now, I'm not normally impressed by GITD products because I've heard and seen all the promises that similar products like these have made. It's been about 15 years since I've owned anything GITD and since then I've moved on to tritium glow products. A few GITD tail caps have made their way into my collection and nothing much as changed in their luminosity since my first GITD product.
Tritium is great as a marker but aren't bright enough for much else. They can be expensive and hard to find. GITD paint/powder are really nice... Initially. After a few hours they reduce down to a glimmer.
The product above claims they will glow for days and bright enough to light a small area, like a tent. The glow tube looks cool and I might give it a try just to see how they're material is like. I've seen it somewhere for 5-6 dollars so it wouldn't set me back too much to give it a try.
I've done a search on this site and haven't heard anyone talk about this company or it's products. Can anyone tell me more about these type of products? Has good quality GITD products come a long way or am I going to be let down?
I'm not looking for a flashlight replacement but I think GITD products may be a good idea when the grid goes down and batteries can no longer recharge.
