I prefer dx or flx plastic for glow discs, ch and z seem to be too slippery, when its cold and wet.
Just picked up a dx glow beast for this upcoming glow season
I was using dx valks for my goto driver last glow season

What's your goto plastic/driver in glow?

It is close to that time of the year. Night Discin, Oh yeah! Has anyone else built a new glow bag. Always like to see what others are doing. I had plans to build one in my Grip bag. But I have been a little short on time.

Phantom, I saw your setup in the newbie section with the aquarium lights. What battery are you using?

Necro bump

Well, I finally got off my butt and built myself a disc charger. I copied Phantom Discs a little and added some twists another golfer suggested locally.Basically, I made two rectangle frames from 1/8" x 3/4" aluminum, welded just at the corners. Finished inside dimension is 9" x 5" with the plexi. They are just to hold the plexi square and there are no vertical supports at all. I then cut some 0.050 plexi to make the walls, fitting inside the alu rectangles and pop riveted them together. So, I ended up with a 9" x 5" x 9" tall box, alu frame top and bottom and all clear in the middle. Its just a sleeve, open on the top and bottom.

Next step was to wrap 5 meters of 5050 UV LED's around the outside with the LED's facing inwards. That gave me 7 wraps around the box with 300 LED's total. I didn't cut anything, just a continuous wrap. That made it easier and quicker. Next, I spaced the strips out evenly and wrapped it all up with metal tape, sealing the light in and securing the LED strip to the plexi. Had to secure it one row at a time while taking out slack which took a little bit of time, but it came out well enough. Not the prettiest, but it worked.

The battery I got was a chicom DC 12680 lithium...some say ion, some say polymer. I say blue battery from China. I tested it today and got 2:20 out of it before it tanked completely, meaning the LED's were still lit, but ineffective. While the battery was fresh, I could get a disc supercharged in just a few minutes. The LED's did get pretty warm, but never hot. So, I think it passed sorta. Will definitely need either a bigger battery, or another same size as a backup.
