any light source
do they require the uv flashlight or will any Led light do? Any help would be great. thanks flashlakso
Sunlight to me seems to work best and quickest. Of course, that doesn't help you at night. I have been disappointed by how long they hold a "charge". The website says 10 minutes will charge them enough for several hours. So I laid my slide in sunlight for 1 hour last week from 12:30-1:30. By 5:00 pm, they were dead. Not what i was hoping for.
I tried them and thought they were OK. My main gripe is that they are a bit stingy with how many they give you. Considering that they are basically just a decal, and tend to slide out of position, or come off after a few cleanings, I think they should give you more extras.
Of course, I guess you could argue that they wouldn't sell as many to the same customer, but the customers might be more willing to recommend them to others, and I probably won't buy any more, anyway, since I use up ~$10 worth every couple of times I clean the gun.
If I could replace them every time, for a year or so, I would probably make it a point to always have some.
