 Red Nite Glowring in hand

Nifty Keyring

Of course, everyone knows that laser-sealed borosilicate glass vials that are internally coated with phosphor will create a cold energy that produces a light source when injected with gaseous tritium. It's as plain as the nose on your face.

The manufacturers of our Glowrings, who produce military equipment and other need-to-see-at-night items, have taken this everyday nugget of basic science and made it their business.

Green Nite Glowring

Glows in the dark!

A Glowring is small enough and tough enough to attach to anything you might need to use in the dark, a bunch of keys being the most obvious. But because they can glow for a few years, you can leave them hanging off things that only come out once in a while like fishing gear and camping equipment. It does have to be pretty dark to see the glow, but that's the point.

Green, Blue and Red Nite Glowring

Available in Blue, Red or green

Customer Reviews

The images shown for this product are very misleading, they don't glow anywhere near that vibrant. The plastic casing doesn't become illuminated from the glass-vile in the slightest unlike in the images. Even a 15-second long photo exposure doesn't give results like those images.

Firebox says: Hey Daryl, sounds as if you may have a sub-par Nite glowring! Drop our customer services team a line on and we will try and help you the best we can.
I bought a set of 3 about 10 years ago from Firebox. One has broken when dropped - but the other two are still glowing strong. (YSWIDT?) I wish everything I bought lasted so well !

Is it dangerous for my health if one breaks. And the gas escapes.

Firebox says: Hey Thomas! These are non toxic so there is no danger.
Please Tell Victoria (Paris), that the style has changed over the years and the new, current ones are stronger. I have had the old style break open and the light has gone out, so now with my remaining old ones I put a piece of clear sticky tape around them. Solved and still going strong. Not had a failure yet with the newer design. Please keep stocking them as when they fade I will need loads more. Particularly useful if you drop your car keys in the car at night, usuall falling under the seat!

I bought one of these glow sticks back in the late ninety's from a different sight but still working and still glowing in wifes bedside drawer. I used to keep beside bed so knew where watch was years ago, now have the other one on my keying. Supposed to have 10 year life span, 13 years strong so far!!

Firebox says: Wow, now that is impressive!
I ordered this item yesterday, and I was really pleased with the service Firebox offered - the postage was cheap and the item turned up in the post today. However, the Nite Glowring I ordered seemed to be nothing like some of the pictures - I took it into a pitch black room and it didn't seem to be glowing at all, and after 10 years I very much doubt this will be glowing.
