Default Anybody uses short CCFLs to highlight UV componenets

Just curios if anybody find a good use for short CCFL lights, such as half size from usual 12".

Any point to make them available for you guys?

Thank youf or feedback.

Nope. Either 12" inverterless CCFL or LED is what I'll be using for now on.

I used to use some of the small ones back when I built my cube case, mostly because they were really cheap, but I dont use any lights anymore, sleeving them is a pain!
