So, some days ago I got some “glowing stuff” from CRX.
Not everything is installed yet, but this is the FW3A with a green gasket Wink
Good quality material, good fit under the Carclo optics! Mi likes Wink
I didn’t test it for the time it glows, but CRX has already presented the data, so I won’t bother with it again!
Soon I’ll show the rest of it !

Thanks CRX for the quality stuff Thumbs Up Beer

Those little discs are the mutts nuts, every time I use my FW3A I’m almost as excited (maybe the wrong word lol) when switching it off to see it glow!

I just received my own set of glow gaskets from CRX and I have to say: you do excellent work and I quite the added bit of color customization I can add to my FW3T and EDC18.

Sorry for the silly question. I thought LED with high CRI is a great feature. Are those blue/green gaskets designed to do the opposite of high CRI by adding blue/green tint?

The light out the front doesn’t shine through the gasket so effect on tint is minimal if any I believe.
But say you have the light on full power then change to ML, you’ll have more tinted colour output than white light for a while.

Does ML mean Medium Light? Is the purpose of those color glow gaskets purely decorative?

MoonLight mode. Yeah just to give an afterglow.
You can buy LED versions from Lexel for a more consistent glow but they require wiring.
Red 1mA.

Minus green filters can be installed between the glass & optic for altering the tint some. It’s a thin plastic film.

imo no

the glow from the gasket, when the light is off, makes it easy to find the light on my nightstand.

the glow has very little actual illumination distance.. I do not feel it changes the CRI of the LED

I especially love my acqua blue color gaskets from CRX! Highly entertaining Smile

I can see the dim glow on my nightstand, in full darkness, even without precharging the glow gasket. Ambient daylight is sufficient to charge the gasket enough to be visible by the bed, in the dark.

Thanks gentlemen, I didn’t know about glow gasket and misunderstood its purpose. I though it was a kind of filter to alter the light tint

Is the glow permanent? does the glow gasket get power from the battery? Is this a similar design than some tail click button that has a led that glows weakly when the light is turned off? Sorry I saw a post somewhere for this design but don’t remember which flashlight model.

Nope, its just molded polymer that had glow-in-the-dark powder mixed in. Like watch lume or little GITD toys.

There are powered “aux LEDs” that can be a single or many different colors depending on their design. The newer Emisar and Fireflies lights have these, and Lexel (maybe others too) here sells boards so you can add them to other lights like the FW3A.

yes,
but not constant brightness

the glow is charged by turning on the flashlight, but the glow is not battery powered

the highest brightness immediately after charging fades quickly (less than 1 minute)
but the residual dim glow remains sufficient to locate the light in the dark.

Even if I do not use the flashlight to charge the glow before bedtime, ambient light during the day, (iow leaving the light sitting on the nightstand 24/7) is enough to make the glow retain sufficient brightness to locate the light in the dark.

welcome

CRX is an old world craftsman

iirc
he designs and builds everything from scratch, with handfiles
I think his only power tool is a drill
no cnc, no lathe

reminds me a bit of Stan Shaw, a very old school master cutler
