    After the first very successful GB here is a second opportunity as some missed out and others wished they bought more. Delivery to the Moot is free.

    We need to meet a minimum order of 100 units for this group buy.


    Attach them to your valuable kit, zips, keys, ridgeline etc. to be able to locate things easily.

    They will last 10+ years and always be on, they do not need to be activated by light, the decay of the Tritium is the energy source for their luminescence. I am very pleased with mine, you can see it at a good distance in the dark.

    There are several colours to choose from. White is dim, ice blue is nice but green is by far the brightest. The tinted green is as good as the clear green but obviously is more colourful in daylight! Different colours can be used to ID different kit etc. [/COLOR

    http://www.niteglowrings.com/clear-glowring/

    http://www.niteglowrings.com/tinted-glowring/

    The UK supplier/manufacturer sells them for about £11 + £4 P&P

    For this GB they are £7 each and P&P is £2 regardless of how many you have. (+ added costs outside Main UK) Recorded delivery is a further £1.10 if you want it. I will obtain a Proof of Posting for every order dispatched which I will supply to you in the unlikely event of loss in transit.

    Firefly units are £5 each and can be added to the full Glowring order, they are dinky but maybe only a third of the size so less output.

    Preferred payment is by BACS or Paypal if you add on associated costs. http://www.clothnappytree.com/ppcalculator/



    The Americans are supposedly not allowed these as it is considered a frivolous use of Tritium! ;) These are fun, practical and also make great presents that last and last.

    Orders need to come in thick and fast if you want'em.

    Here is a Tritium Glowring brightness chart:

    tritbrightnesschart.jpg

    Personally I have found the green/vibrant green to be far ahead and the ice blue to be an attractive alternative. I have found the White to be feeble and unattractive. If you want to use colours to differentiate between kit then great but if you want to see it at distance then the green/vibrant green is the one to go for.


    UPDATE:

    Whilst I am at it I can also include P&P free Aluminium Keyring Pill Holders. Two for £2 total. Add another £1 if you want both with Magnesium powder. Random colours unless you are really desperate and then I will try my best. (Don't throw all the fine Mg in the fire at once, it scares the campers, huhum, so I have been told! ;)) I also have long reels of Mg ribbon 25g at £2.

    [​IMG]

    Similar to this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-x-Pill-B...item2a3690431f

    These have a screw thread and O-ring. They are great for storing, Vaseline, matches, spare money, pills/medicine, magnesium powder, pepper, chilli, mints, spare batteries, etc etc.

    Please add costs to your payment and clearly indicate your total order when you PM me.

    Ta, Phil

    Hi Paul,

    P&P covers RM postage up to 250g, commercial standard protective shipping box, stickers. cellotape, insurance for losses, travel, telephone calls, parking, etc. Anything that may be left over would go to prizes, consumables and communal kit for the Moot and other meets. Buyers are free to maximise the RM allowance but £1 doesn't usually even cover the RM postage. My hours of time are free of course. :)

    Regards, Phil

    These are awesome bits of kit guys and at a great price. You will love them, great for practical use or presents. I was reading by the green glow of one last night, not easy but doable.

    Personally I have found the green/vibrant green to be far ahead and the ice blue to be an attractive alternative. I have found the White to be feeble and unattractive. If you want to use colours to differentiate between kit then great but if you want to see it at distance then the green/vibrant green is the one to go for.
