Not All The Way Dead

The phosphorescent night sights on Portia aren't completely dead.

If I charge them up with my super bright Chinese 7w CREE LED light, they will glow quite brightly for about 30 seconds.

Before charging.
About five seconds after 10 seconds of charging with the Cree light.  It's about half as bright as when I started to attempt to get the camera to take a focused shot.

They're on life support, most assuredly.

I wonder what one would buy to renew the phosphor.

Or even upgrade to tritium, like they did starting in 1986.
