The folks at Streamlight have announced some great accessories for their Sidewinder family of lights.
One that I thought is particularly useful is the Glow-in-the-Dark Safety Wand. The wand is a polymer glow in the dark hood that mounts to the articulating head.
The operator can change colors from white to red, green or blue by engaging the appropriate LED with the function select knob located on the head.
I got word, today, from Streamlight’s marketing arm that the Glow-in-the-Dark-Safety Wand is in fact made from a glow in the dark polymer – like the plastic statuettes sold by the Catholic Church, years ago, of your favorite Saint – and it does not rely on the Sidewinder’s L.E.D.s.

It’s inexpensive at $12.95 and highly functional.
