Also, I suggest paying the extra couple bucks for a UV flashlight ALREADY in the USA instead of one shipping from Hong Kong.

I think what he is asking is, is there really a way to blast your discs so that you could play several throws with that one initial charge? I think not.

If not, (i.e. you charge the disc before each throw) then it gets much simple, just go with what's effective enough and easy to carry. I used to have a keychain 1-LED UV light and even that was enough. No need to lug around a massive lightsaber or a UV light from which you need to protect yourself (I actually laughed aloud at that) if the difference to a "normal" light is negligible.

UV light is more effective than normal. It also will not mess your night vision. If you have to do it with a normal light, just do it behind your back and dont look at it if you want to keep seeing in the dark.

I think some people build some light rigs inside the bag to keep a constant charging atmosphere in there, so as to avoid the few seconds of charging before each throw, but that sounds like too much work. No need to overcomplicate things.

Huh. 12 hours yeah right? Like you could charge them at home and then play 4-5 rounds of glow disc golf without charging...

Any of the small, inexpensive UV flashlights will work fine.
You just hit it for a second or two, before every throw.

As for the gateway superglow stuff, I have found you need to take a little longer to charge them (I have a voodoo that is real slow/hard to charge) but once you get it going it is super bright, and lasts a long time.
It's almost too bright to putt with, because you can see the basket.
