Frequently Asked Questions

about how Sunlight Charge products work.
  • What is phosphorescence?
  • Phosphorescence is a material property of some chemical compounds allowing them to absorb light, which is then stored and re-emitted as luminescent light. Phosphorescent material is commonly called "glow-in-the-dark."
  • Are Sunlight Charge products different from glow-in-the-dark toys?
  • The short answer is "No." However, recent phosphorescent products use a newer material, strontium aluminate, which glows brighter and longer than older materials. Sunlight Charge products use a recent Japanese-made version of this pigment which holds a longer afterglow. Similar materials are now used for emergency exit signs at US federal facilities, now mandatory after the events of September 11.
  • Do the products need bright sunlight to store energy?
  • No. Direct sunlight is more efficient, but our products can also absorb light from indirect light or indoor lighting. Direct sunlight provides a fully-charged product in about 20 minutes. Depending on lighting conditions, other light sources may take up to 1 hour to fully charge. But remember that phosphorescent products are always "on", so it is best to either charge just before using, or continue charging throughout the day while not in use.
  • How long does the light last and how bright is it?
  • Our long afterglow pigment can glow brighter and up to 10 times longer than other phosphorescent pigments. Phosphorescent pigments all gradually dim over several hours as they emit energy. Our quality material maintains high brightness for 1 hour, and continues to emit gradually dimming light up to 12 hours.
  • Can the products be used outdoors?
  • Yes. Our products contain only phosphorescent mineral material and plastic, so they are safe to use indoors, outdoors, or even in water. Unless the glowing area is dirt-covered or damaged, it will continue storing and emitting light semi-permanently.
  • Do the products contain any harmful materials?
  • No, our products contain no hazardous metals or radioactive substances. But as with most plastics, you should not ingest or burn the material.
