Normal discs don't "charge". You need to get glow discs.
I'm guessing he means that they're glow in those plastics.

I have picked up a DX 166 Valkyrie, CH 168 Roadrunner, and have a 176 Voodoo in the mail (can't wait to see how well the superglow works)
plus I got another led/uv light

I also bought some red and uv leds to go with some cr2025 watch batts. For disc lights


I have a super bright reg/white led light I put tail light repair tape on the lense to make it red (for walking in the dark)

I have my old crunch box set up as a glow bag now (pics to follow)

The uv light for windshield repairs should work great never thought of it I got one but it plugs into the car lighter

I have mounted the uv light in the bottom of the bag (using vecro from the old disc divider)

then i got some flexible mirror i could cut up (mirror repair kit from auto dept.)
i put it full width on the long sides, and in the lid/top flap.
i also used some smaller pieces in the bottom and on the short sides.

this allows the one uv light, to bounce all over the inside of the bag, lighting all the discs very well

I found spencers at the mall had a bunch of batt. powered black lights.
So I got a couple 6" and mounted them on one end
(They kinda suck compared to the windshield repair curing light)

I got a voodoo in superglow plastic (it has the big stamp)
And it isn't all that super.

Anyone else have any gateway superglow plastic?
What do you think?

How are you charging it? A good UV flashlight works the best.

Admittedly, Gateway's glow hasn't been so super lately (compared to the older runs). Dave said the cost of the glow agent went up in price substantially so it was either cut it back a little or charge way too much for the discs. They still glow fairly well though when charged with the right light.
