Seems like they would overheat.

I have a couple of glow in the dark flashlights and when the power is cut suddenly that's a wonderful thing. "Hey, there's a flashlight right over there"……
Yet after about 30 minutes the glow is gone. But it has come in handy a few times in thunderstorms.

RL, depends how you mixture powder/epoxy. Blue is allways few minutes on max where green lasts up to an hour.
It’s fun just like flashlights we ate talking about

Wow, is possible to share your technique and which supplies you used? Just bought a few glow gaskets from JC Customs and the FW3G, so GITD is my jam at this moment. I appreciate you helping us out man.

I ordered a 2.2in x 9in round of Turboglow in green last week.. one of those 3:30am night shift purchases.. along with a 45w UV light.. I better be impressed!! Both should be here by tomorrow. I'll try to get some glow times and cool photos.

1st photo is beginning..4.5 hours later with acclimating to the dark 6x8ft room I can still make out med/ large objects in the room and see the walls. Keep in mind my rod is 10in tall 2.2in wide. The company sent more than I bought lol.

Just another thing to note that's pretty damn cool is if you stick it in hot water it starts glowing brighter again.. using water that was hot from the tap I got it as bright as it was 10 mins into the test.. thats after 40 sec of submersion.
