    Default anybody notice the e2e afterglow?

    I was showing the E2E to a friend in the super-dark garage. After our eyes had adjusted to the dark, we were lighting up things on the other side of the car and then taking turns illuminating our hands.

    While we were amazed we could trace our arteries through out lower hands, what suprised me more was the fact that the lamp assembly glowed. While the lamp itself had an after-effect, the plastic around the base that was still visible glowed dimly for 1.5-2 seconds. Cool!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/buttrock.gif[/img]

    Keep in mind I wasn't blinding myself and seeing the dots. Shine it into something so so light gets out for a few seconds (gut works), turn it off then look at the lamp assembly. As the bulb fades, you can still see the halo around the edge. Too bad it doesn't last longer. Glow powder comes to mind... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Well, I thought it was cool. Let me know what you think

    That is the phosporecense effect. the phosphor will still glow for a brief amount of time.
