Default UV Lights

Too lazy to search if this thread had been done before, so here goes...

Who here glow-golfs, and what light do you use or recommend?

I bought one of the crappy RAYOVAC lights from wallyworld last year and it's already starting to have connection problems.

I'm looking to upgrade to a 100-led monstrosity for one reason: more power (insert tim taylor grunt here). That weenie rayovac light, when it's working mind you, barely gets some of my stuff glowing, specifically latitude discs.

What do you use?

Avoid the big 100 light one, had one similar and it was bad quality. The best UV LED flashlight out there is the UltraFire WF 501B. Packs a heck of a punch in a skinny, streamlined housing ideal for your pocket. Used to be able to find them on eBay or wherever with charger and rechargeable batteries for like $15.00 and they last for years. Almost everyone in our weekly glow league has eventually come around to this model after trying others that didnt quite work well enough.

Make sure you place it right on the disc and close your eyes when charging your disc. Only takes 1-2 seconds of extreme UV light from the UltraFire to get your disc glowing great.

Googling that brings up an LED light, not a UV one.

I do like the rechargeable 18560 batteries though.

Agreed, wouldnt order from HK either. Just giving you the proper name of the item, feel free to click on US Only or snag it from some other trusted site with faster delivery. Probably get it in a day or two from Amazon.
