Cyalume Green Glow Sticks – Premium Bright 6” SnapLight Sticks with 12 Hour Duration (10 Pack)
These Glow Sticks are great. As soon as I received them, I turned off all the lights in my house which made my house pitch BLACK, as I live in the country.
I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. I took a couple, broke them, and sat them around the biggest room in our house and they lit up the whole room – that’s 22x 17. They provide enough light to let you see what you’re doing. I know the grandchildren will love them when we have the next campfire. i had seen other children running around with them last 4th of July and decided I figured my kiddies would love them just as well. I figure it us cheap, harmless entertainment for us.
The price on these is a pretty good deal, they ship quickly and they last a long time in storage (and easily for the stated 12 hours once snapped, although the do dim a bit after 8 hours or so,).
When the power goes out, or the car has a problem, these are real nice to have. There are times when the flashlight batteries are crapped out, or you are fumbling around in the dark for matches and candles. These work great.
Personally, I keep a half a dozen in each car and I duct tape two behind each closet door at our house.
Will buy again.
Holy wow these are bright. Compared to other glow sticks these are the brightest I’ve seen. I was surprised a little and glad that it matched up with the way I thought they would be. The plastic is thicker they are individually packaged with a lot of air in it so it would do well packed in a backpack.
I got the green ones and green always seem to be the brightest glow sticks. Will buy again. Works better than the cowbell at night to keep track of the kid.
