Out of curiosity, I did a little test:
I lighted a nock on Feb 5th.

Today, Feb 21st, the light is still on, faint but visible in the dark.

Amazing performance!

Best lighted nocks on the market, of the ones I have tried.

Great product. I am shocked they stayed lit so long, just tells me I need another pack before the company catches on.

They are everything I use, very dependable; but I never suspected they could last that long.

Wow. Lot longer than I would have thought. Expected hours, not days. Thanks for sharing.

I think these things are cool and on video they are really cool but I am bit lost on why folks use them.

Frankly, I don't think I have lost more than an arrow or two (very small percentage of shots anyway) and most of the time the arrow isn't in the animal anymore so what do they do for you folks that use them. If it is just cool that is ok as I have nothing against cool or fun factors either. Just don't really understand the value.

In low light situations it really helps in tracking. Especially with hogs. I have shot at hogs and have no idea which way it went after the shot. A lighted nock down the trail is good indication which way the animal traveled after the hit.

My only complaint about Nocturnal is the need for a knife or something pointed and thin to turn it off and with my aging eyes I have to do with my glasses on. I hate that.

Shot my first animal with one this year. A great help in seeing where you hit during low light conditions. Also assists in finding arrow and/or game. Did a "coon shoot" at ETAR last year using them, would have lost 2 arrows without them.

I also like using them in the late evening during backyard practice to learn "the trajectory of the arrow".

Love them!

I have some of these. I take them off the bow on AM hunts once it gets good and light.

I've never shot an animal with one on the string though (missed a deer last year with one on -- sort of a bummer watching that little light laughing at my miss stuck there in the dirt with a few white hairs! [Confused]

I think the package says they last 20 hours. My son has them and pretty sure that's what I read.

I did put off the very very faint light today!

The result of this test: You will have a few days to find your arrow. And for a couple of days, it will be very bright.
I would not hunt without one where it's legal. One might shoot at lunch time and be still tracking at night.

with hogs its more likely that the arrow will stay in for a little ways if not all the way to the end of the recovery . Its not all about loosing arrows but loosing game for me.

I'm late to the party. I've never shot lighted nocks.
