The Nitestick is a glow-in-the-dark recharagable keyring sized night light, powered by sunlight or artificial lighting and guaranteed to last for ten years. Ideal for campers or anyone outside in the great outdoors at night, the Nitestick glows brighter the longer it is charged, and requires as little as five minutes to power up. This handy little device measures just 10 cms x 5 cms, is ideal for helping you find your keys in bags or tent zips etc., and comes on a keyring for safe keeping. Colours Available: Vibrant Orange Cool Pink Royal Purple Ice Blue Mellow Yellow Crystal Green
These Nitestik keyrings use the old glow-in-the-dark technology requiring light to charge them. Admittedly you need less light to get them glowing, and they last longer than you'd expect, but ultimately these keyrings have limited use.
An example of a bad use would be your car keys. These will likely live in your pocket or your bag whilst you're out. In relative darkness. It's night time when you return to your car, and pull out your keys. The nitestik hasn't had much light, and it's now dark, so it doesn't glow, or glow very well.
A good use of these keyrings though would be on things that are exposed to the light. So backpacks, dog collars etc. If you're doing a long walk that ends up in the dark, a keyring attached to a strap will have had ample light during the day to glow for quite a while at night, at least until you make camp.
My recommendation would be to get a Tritium gas filled stick, which will cover all potential needs for a light-marker!
However, as some others have noted, this stick needs to be 'charged' by placing into Bright light; it then continues to 'after' glow (luminece) depending upon how long it was left in bright light;
(thus it is of no use if it's attached to keys in a bag all day for example.)
It does NOT 'naturally' glow like Tritium NiteStik...
Its glow life depends upon how long, and bright it was left in direct light, and fades after a few hours.
No use as any kind of illuminating light, but 'OK' as a light locator (for example on a tent Zip.)
It will fade after a shorter period of time (ie will NOT last all night long).
OK for the Warehouse price, but if you can find a GENUINE NiteStik for slightly more, that would be the recommendation.
