465812 Here’s another one I’d like to do homebrew version of…Emergency Afterglow Lighting combines scotopic phosphor blend with non-radioactive after-glow phosphor blend to provide uninterrupted illumination in critical interior areas during low-light and no-power conditions. Even if bulb breaks, glass pieces will continue to glow up to 12 hr after power goes off. This 100% bomb-proof fluorescent lighting can also be detached and used as portable emergency light source.

    Yea, these are really cool. My only wish is that the manufacture actually have a way to order a small quality on their website.

    Yes, it’s a bad idea to undercut your distributors, but unless they can tell you to just go pick up a few at your local “Home Disaster” hardware store and home center, you really need to either give out free samples, or let the consumer actually buy a few of whatever your selling.

    Instead of thinking, wow, what a really cool idea, I could now be showing and selling the product to all my friends via word-of-mouth advertising, the kind of advertising every manufacture craves.

    I’m sure they’re ecstatic over the sudden traffic, they ought to be slapping their heads right now.
