Yesterday, my son tackled me and said that the foam conducts. And he can prove it. So, we touched one of the neon testers to live, and I lit it up, through the gloves. Slightly less bright than without the glove. But, it was definitely glowing a bit.
So, I pointed out that I was standing on a vinyl floor, on concrete, wearing rubber trainers, etc. The tester contains a resistor (although I have not found out the resistance yet - anyone know?)
So, the gloves are only a bit of the resistance in the chain. Anyone know what the gloves' resistance is? Does that reduce a lot with wear?
I'm going to continue wearing them.
