The Gen 2 3.5”x 5/8” 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
- 3.5”x 5/8”
- .75 Ounces
- The brighter the light source = quicker charge time
- Upto 24 hours of after glow ( Quick charge your UGM with a flashlight )
These markers are neat! They absorb ambient light, or any other light source with ease. The glow output is uniform and bright without being too bright. UGMs are ideal for medical equipment, compartmentalized bags, keys, hunting/camping equipment or anything else you need to set apart while still preserving you night vision. I do agree with some of the other reviews regarding price. These should be priced lower; $3-4 bucks tops.
Large surface area glows brilliant and is eye catching. But the light decay curve seems about the same as any other GID. The difference is the physical size. Still nothing beat a Tritium GID key fob.
