Are cold cathodes safe?
I've seen pic of computers that the cold cathode light cuaght on fire.

I'm looking to pick up some sort of UV lights to make my UV reactive cable glow. (x-connect power cables and UV reative IDE cables)

Any advice?

Before I zoned out in chem. class the teacher was playing with cathode ray tubes. It was pretty sweet, anyway there perfectly safe.

Like I Always say Go for it and don’t look back.

The only way I know to judge a CCT is by relative price. The High Voltage inverters in these units are the part that fail, so if they go...the light goes. And in a big way.

Can I talk you out of using CCT's? Creatively placed LED's are so sweet IMO.
