What is one of the most annoying things you face when organizing your cables? One challenge may be locating a cable at night. Another could be identifying one cable from another at a moments glance. Find out if you can solve these annoyances with Color Cables.
According to the directions provided:
We recommend placing the cable close to a bright light source to enhance the glow effect. Less than a foot from a 100w bulb or in direct sunlight will produce excellent results, usually the cable glows for 6-8 hours of glow from 1-2 hour of light exposure. The more frequently the cable is exposed to a light source the brighter and longer it will glow each night.
I followed the directions and put my cables into direct sunlight for 8 or so hours. I am currently living in New York and the sun is really strong here. After 8 or so hours, I brought my cables inside. I did notice the glowing effect. You should get near the amount of glow effect stated on the directions. The strength that these cables glow in the dark is similar to the glow sticks often used during Halloween. I would go as far as to say that when seeing both color cables and a glow stick side by side, people might assume they are made by the same company.
Following their calculations, the cables did last most of the night. I am happy that after continued light exposure to a light source, the glow was slightly brighter and lasted a bit longer. As one would expect, the cables do work in connecting your Android devices to a PC or to provide power. I also like the non-glowing color part of the cables which let you assign specific cables for individual uses.
I like things that glow in the dark. I like a cable that subtly glows more than cables with embedded lights that provide a light show. The main reason for buying these cables is for their glow in the dark ability. I am happy to say that this ability does seem to work as its creators had intended it to. These are great cables to purchase.
