Sorry @leech~~, haven't looked at doing uv for glo but you tweaked my interest. 

 

I just thought may be you had a few spare parts laying around and could through one together in a hour?  😊

Slept on it last night, can get material from one of my most favorite suppliers. Using an egg shape container will bombard the jig from all directions with wavelength +- 400Nm UV using bright white LED's. Plan to add a Dual-Element Pyroelectric Detector AKA photo sensor that will turn lights on/off automatic when jig inserted saving battery power on flasher. Destroying the function of the Ozark Trail wine cup by cutting the bottom off won't be a great loss as I quit drinking 40 years ago. With Christmas, New Years and trip to Red won't be done till late Jan.

I just thought the cup idea was cool.  Just dip your lure in the cup and go. But a LED flashlight is a cheap option that works.

OK @leech got the UV Led strip & Ozark Trail insulated wine glass. Cut the top off the top of the wine glass (its steel not glass) removing the inside cup. Put UV LEDs inside. As I am still waiting for my 3 cell 18650 charge board I put together my Pre-Prototype using a 2023 12volt battery in holder with push button switch from my scrap bin and mounted on a 1x4. Going out go a local lake today & will post working results and how long the $1 battery last.

If you have a steel wine glass (you might be a Red neck)  😅

Looks good hope it works out.

Wine glass is steel, chromium I think very thin & strong. Out today small lake. Small 12v battery only dropped .2 volts with 30+ jig lights. Think I'll use 2 batteries in parallel should last a long time.

Are all LED UV lights purple?

UV light is not visible to human eye. They add color lens usually blue/purple
