These 1.4”x .4" x .27” Universal Glow Markers (UGM’s) or simply Glow In The Dark Epoxy Resin Bars are perfect for marking all your gear making it easy to find in the dark. These are a super bright, long lasting, reusable glow stick that does not wear out. They do not use batteries, bulbs or electricity.
They recharge quickly by absorbing light from any light source. The brighter the light source, the brighter they glow.
Their original use was as emergency markers, marking survival equipment onboard submarines. The Navy required them to be “non-powered, rugged, re-usable, and non-nuclear”. We use them everywhere including hanging them from the inside door knobs at hotels to help us find our way out.
Finding and tagging your gear out of a dark cargo hold has never been easier.
Add the UGM to your Keys, Backpack, Door Knob, Gas Valve, TV Remote, BOB, SHTF Bag, First Aid Kit. ETC
Each UGM is hand finished
- USA Made
1.4”x .4" x .27” - .10 Ounces
- The brighter the light source = quicker charge time
- Upto 24 hours of after glow ( Quick charge your UGM with a flashlight )
These are pretty sweet. They glow intensely for a few minutes and then fade to a subtle glow and stay that way for a few hours. I charged mine next to a lightbulb for 15 minutes around 9pm, in the morning around 530 it still had a faint glow. Not bad.
These are "Goldilocks" sized Glow Markers. I bought a bunch for gifts. I prefer putting directly on the typical 1"+ Split Ring rather than using the ball chain just for security, or using a smaller split ring to hang the marker. (I just don't trust ball chains... ymmv.)
The Glow Marker itself is very bright once exposed to sunlight for even a short bit of time, but, of course, the longer the better and brighter. The persistence of the glow will last all night long - of course, not at its initial bright output, but more than adequate for night vision adapted eyes to see your keys, etc., on the nightstand or table, etc., early in the morning.
The challenge for this role is that keys live in your pocket or purse, not out in the daylight, so you need to let the marker charge a bit.
Other uses, where the marker can be exposed to light - tent marker, gear marker, location marker, etc., have no such limitations. To your eyes at night, the bigger the marker area, the easier to "see" the marker.
