Man asks if he's wrong to use UV light to recharge watch on plane.

It's hard to travel no matter what. When this man is conflicted about how to act on a flight, he asks Reddit:

"AITA for using a UV light to recharge my watch on a plane?"

Background: Parts of the dial on my watch are luminous so that they're visible in the dark. It's quite common among higher end timepieces and it's essential for seeing the time, as well as being a neat party trick and conversation starter. The material (Chromalight) recharges with UV light, so I carry a torch to recharge it.

The incident: I was on an overnight flight this week and when they dimmed the lights, I noticed the brightness was starting to fade. From experience, I knew it wasn't going to last the full flight, so I got out my UV torch as usual and started to recharge it.

That's when the woman next to me started freaking out, screeching about how it was too bright and distracting her from whatever trash movie she was watching.
