    How many do you need and what size? Inside diameter? Thickness?
    I have some different sizes.

    that sounds good, thank you fivemega!!!
    I must measure the exact sizes what I need.
    I like to replace the rings between bezel and lens from different flashlights I own.
    I have some Tiablo / Regalight and Ultrafire/Solarforce lights, with original glow rings inside and I like this, thats why I will replace other black rings.
    i have some Nitecores, Raidfire speer, Dereelight and some KD/DX Cree/ MC-E and P7 lights.
    I will measure the sizes and PM you!!

    thank you, Jens

    You can make your own using some 2mm silicone tubing, glow powder, and some epoxy. There's a thread on how to do it in here somewhere, but you essentially cut a length of tubing that's exactly the diameter of the ring you need, epoxy one end, then fill it with glow powder (cut a tiny hole in a sandwich bag and funnel it in like cake frosting), epoxy the open end, then epoxy the two ends together. The result is a super-bright glow ring that's several times brighter than the usual premade o-rings. Ist gut ja

    thank you very much for all your answers!
    But I have not enough time and not all these things, I need for building my own glow rings.
    I thought, you can buy anything which gives it in the world.....and I wonder, why I can't find a shop, who I can buy some cheap glow Rings (DX sell it, 10 for $2, but only small sizes....)

    It really depends on the demand.

    If you have a specific size in mind, you could see if there are enough CPF members that would also like some of these.

    For example GITD o-rings for the Aleph-1 or Aleph-3 or M@g. head may be popular.

    Then if you can find a manufacturer who is willing to make a certain number of these, you could then organize a Group Buy
    for these in the appropriate "Group Buy and Passaround" Forum in the MarketPlace.

    I know it sounds like a lot of work though.

    tubing.
