Never lose anything in the dark again
“I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark.” That was what Mohammad Ali said about himself. For the rest of us there still can be a bit of light between the switch and the bed. Or anywhere else for that matter. Thanks to a nice little gadget called the Nite Glowring.
Little it is. Only 0.4 x 1.9 inches (10 x 48 mm). The perfect keyring. Add to it the following:
1. Self powered light source – GTLS Illumination gives up to 20 years continuous glow;
2. Visibility of 20ft (6m), increasing the darker it gets;
3. Waterproof up to 100 ft (30m).
The supplier, Gadgets.co.uk, explains the technology: “Each Nite Glowring consists of 10mm diameter polycarbonate case. This provides a very strong outer casing for the 3mm diameter laser sealed glass tube known as a Gaseous Tritium Light Source (GTLS). The inside of this tube is coated with phosphor, and the resultant reaction between the gaseous tritium and the phosphor causes it to glow continuously without any external power source. The highly specialised technology is also used in advanced military hardware, or safety equipment where a guaranteed light source is needed in hazardous environments or conditions.”
As they say, “Never lose anything in the dark again.”
Priced at about $20 the Nite Glowring looks like a must-have little gadgets.
