Full set of BATTSTIK™ - 4 pieces
Alumina A, Cerium, Chrome and Zirconium Oxide Polish Charging Sticks.

This new product from Gearloose is a quick, easy and non-messy way of charging your laps with a choice of four different oxide polishes to suit gem material softer than corundum.
Now available direct from Aussie Sapphire - the Australian dealer for Gearloose laps and products.  Give these a try - you'll be impressed by how these work for you.
Touch the BATTSTIK™ to the lap, move outward to flow melt the water soluble base, forming a thin uniform film on the lap. Turn on a SLOW water drip or light mist, creating a slurry film right on the lap. Reduces waste and mess! 
Information below from Gearloose (the manufacturer):


The BATTSTIK™ was developed to reduce the mess and waste we all experienced with oxide slurries. This became even more important when the Darkside™ laps came into common acceptance, because everyone learned they require VERY LITTLE oxide polish! 

If too much oxide polish is used, it can pile up and cause scratching. One benefit of the BATTSTIKs is they train people not to use too much oxides.
Monoclinic Zirconium Oxide is significantly more aggressive and faster than Cerium Oxide on polishing quartzes. The Zirconia BATTSTIK™ has been released for use on the Darkside and other polymer laps, or can be used as a "Boost" on the Creamway™. 
As always, there are surprises. Users have now reported good results on peridot and the beryls.
NOTE:  image sourced from Gearloose website.  This item is for a full set of 4 sticks.
NOTE:  The Battstiks are now the new version with a hard plastic covering and removable lid - this change has been introduced to reduce the risk of contamination and mess on your workspace.  To expose polish as required, remove the hard plastic outer layer with a crayon sharpener (ie. the ones with the larger size hole).
