    Chad's Crappy Corner & Another Gadget For His March Theme!

    Chad polled our loyal Patreon members and asked them to vote on his theme for March. They picked “Inexpensive Garden Gadgets”.

    Chad's 4th gadget of the month bears the Amazon long-winded name: AMAGABELI GARDEN & HOME Glow in the Dark Pebbles for walkways, Décor Glow Stones rocks for garden outdoor, Decorative Luminous Pebbles Gravel, Fairy Garden Pathway Walkway, Fish Tank Aquarium (These are) Blue Decorative glow stones measuring 0.8"-1.2"/ 2-3 cm. - 100 pieces per package. Pebble lighting that requires no electricity and no power. This glow stones pebbles gravel stones are durable and weather resistant. They absorb sunlight during the day and give off light throughout the night. Intensity is strongest 2 - 3 hours at night after a full day in the sun and light soft light rest of night. 

    And Chad's take:Chad liked them, although they don't glow quite bright as seen on the Amazon page. But as Chad shows in his video, the darker the space, the more you'll be able to see the Glow Stones actually glow. Chad also pointed out that if you look closely you can see some of the seams on the stones. They're made of resin, and use no power except for the exposure to sunlight, or even artificial light. I believe the glow effect is shorter with artificial light. Watch this week's show for Chad's “in use” test, both indoors and out. All in all, Chad thought they were pretty good for the price. $10.99 (100 stones) and they're Amazon Prime.
