Has anyone ever used those illumines night light disc (translucent green color) in the darkroom? Any problems?

Thanks in advance, Robert

I have them in my darkroom. My daughter put up glowing stars all over the ceiling. (she felt sorry that I had to stay in the dark so much). Yea, it was a really shock to see them the first time! But I haven't noticed any problem with film fogging. And they are so bright that I can see the sheet film in the tray (very unnerving). All I can guess is that they put out a light that has a narrow spectrum, and the film doesn't see it. Very odd however.
