I have a handgun safe I keep it in,  going to use a little led light with a switch on the door, open the door on the safe that  bit of light will fire those sights up.

I still have to put a little clear nail polish on the site. But I'm pretty much done.

With very little light for a short period  Of time they charged up nicely. And are actually brighter than tritium.

After having the glow on paint on my sights for a a while now, I've come to realize the only time they will work is if you flash bright light on them for a while.
In the middle of the night and Intruder comes in the house I gotta pull out a damn flashlight and light up my sites. When fired up with a bright LED flashlight they are brighter than tritium but other than that ,the Glow on is useless.  $17 wasted!!!
Actually I found some neon pink paint very bright. I dug out the front sight removing the glow on and replaced it with bright fluorescent pink paint, the front sight stands out like crazy in the daytime.

No, it's definitely not the same as tritium inserts but I keep a bright flashlight on my nightstand.  If I close my eyes and hit them for about five seconds, they work really well. 
Sorry to hear you're so disappointed in it!

Tritium lamps shouldn't be intended for aiming a gun in the dark, they simply don't work that way.

Best use for them is finding your gun, in the dark.

Yea they do work that way but only after identifying the target as a threat.

1.  Don't lump "to dark to see/align the sights" with "pitch black".  There are periods of time and conditions during the night that you can identify a threat but not be able to line up regular sights.

2.  If it's shooting at you, it's a threat and being able to line up your sights is a good thing.

Like having an extra magazine or three.  Just because the average gunfight lasts 2.7 rounds (old number, I have no idea it that's still the statistic or not) doesn't mean you only need to carry 3 rounds in your pistol and the rest are useless.  You have the extra rounds/magazines because conditions may result in you needing the additional "help."

Yeah, they've got to be lit up first but I'll have a flashlight with me anyway.  And it really doesn't take much to charge them up.  While I may have the flashlight in one hand, I may not be able to keep it on the intended target unless things are over, real quick.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
