The UV Paqlite–You Would Definitely Say it Glows

What’s more fun and practical than the glow-in-the-dark toys you played with as a kid? What light source is useful for including in your prepping supplies?

It’s the amazing light–or lights–from Company owner Steve Nagel was my guest yesterday on DestinySurvival Radio to talk about Paqlites. His daughter and business partner Alexis is usually with him for such interviews, but she was unable to join us.

The UV Paqlite comes in four sizes. There are two sizes of the Tooblite. Then there’s the newest introduction, the Scooblite for divers.

The UV in the name comes from two sources. One is ultraviolet light which recharges the Paqlites. The other is Steve’s Uncle Vernon, who inspired the family to be better prepared.

Paqlites don’t require batteries. They always work, and are easy to recharge. They don’t put out heat, and there are no mechanical parts. Plus, there’s no need to worry about shelf life or an expiration date. Nothing else compares to them.

Paqlites use the best glow-in-the-dark material Steve Nagel could find. I can tell you from experience that it’s amazing how long they stay bright. As Steve puts it, they’re not pretty, but they work. They’re rugged, waterproof and can withstand extreme temperatures.

These lights won’t replace light bulbs, but they put out a surprising amount of light for a glow light. Sunlight or ordinary daylight will charge them up. Or if you need a fast charge in the middle of the night, a flashlight or car headlights turned on for a short time will do the trick. That saves your battery power, too.

These lights are great for any time the power’s out. Use them to find things in a dark tent. Or mark trails. Children like them as night lights. There’s no limit on the practical uses you’ll find for these nifty light sources.

When Steve started the business, he marketed to hunters and fishermen first. Then a few months later the survival and emergency preparedness market came to his attention.

Believe it or not, the UV Paqlite business has only been around about a year. And it’s been within the past few months that it’s really taken off.

Never be without light again. Paqlites should be in your survival kits and supplies. Get some mini Tooblites as gifts, or use them as promotional items. They’re great for fundraisers, too.
