Product Description

The Cyalume ChemLight is a white military grade chemical light stick measuring 6" long, for providing instant 360 degree illumination, that can be seen up to a mile away for up to 8 hours in optimal conditions. The ChemLight is waterproof, non-toxic, and non-flammable. To activate the light stick, bend, snap and shake the tube. The light stick has a hook and gate top, for hanging or attaching the light. The ChemLight meets Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA) specifications, and National/NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) are printed on each product. Each light stick is individually foil-wrapped for protection from light and moisture, and has up to a four-year shelf life from date of manufacture.

The durable, waterproof, external body of the light stick is made from low density polyethylene (LDPE), and is phthalate free for safety. The internal illuminating chemical substance is non-toxic and non-flammable, and the components of the light stick are recyclable. The light stick floats in water and works best between 40 to 80 degrees F (4 to 27 degrees C), and although the light stick works at higher or lower temperatures, it is less effective in colder temperatures.

All sticks are tested at a temperature of 72 degrees F (22 degrees C) to determine the illumination duration. Each 10-degree C (50-degree F) increase or decrease in temperature doubles or halves the reaction rate, and therefore the brightness and duration. For example, the same light stick that emits approximately 30 lux (a unit that describes how much light is visible over a square meter) at 15 minutes after activation at 24 degrees C (75 degrees F) will be half as bright but glow twice as long at 14 degrees C (57 degrees F). At 34 degrees C (93 degrees F), the same light stick would be twice as bright, but glow half as long. Storage at elevated temperatures (above 120 degrees F or 49 degrees C) will decrease shelf life and start to soften the plastic tube, and increase the risk of a leak. Exposure to cold temperatures will not affect the light sticks if they are warmed above 40 degrees F (4.5 degrees C) before activation, unless they are frozen (which occurs at -15 to -20 degrees F, or -26 to -29 degrees C). Once light sticks have been frozen, they will still produce some light, but performance will not be as reliable. Humidity and atmospheric conditions do not affect the light sticks.

Light sticks are chemiluminescent substances in plastic tubes that provide hours of illumination in a number of safety, industrial, and military applications. Light sticks are waterproof, non-flammable, and non-sparking, which makes them useful in hazardous situations where sparks or flame could cause an explosion. Duration is determined by the chemistry of the formulation. Brightness is affected by temperature: the warmer the temperature, the brighter the light will appear. All sticks are tested at a temperature of 72 degrees F to determine the illumination duration. Viewing distance can be affected by temperature, moisture, and other elements. Exposure to direct sunlight can reduce shelf life and effectiveness.

Cyalume Technologies manufactures chemiluminescent products used for safety, industrial, and military applications. The company, founded in 1970 and headquartered in West Springfield, MA, makes products under ChemLight and SnapLight brands. ChemLight products meet military specifications, and the company meets ISO 9001 standards.

I recently tested the Cyalume Military Grade white light sticks against the Cyalume Industrial Grade white light sticks. Result: there was no discernable difference in either light output or duration. It seems the only difference between the two is that the U.S. military, for reasons best known to it, requires a slightly different formulation for their light sticks. This formulation, however, is not even as good as the Industrial Grade formulation as the Industrial Grade formulation has a five-year shelf life while the Military Grade formulation has a four-year shelf life. Bottom line: The Military Grade version is a good light stick but not worth the 25% extra you pay over the Industrial Grade light stick which produces the same amount of light and lasts just as long. The Military Grade packaging does look cooler though.

Bought a supply of these after living through hurricane Irene this summer, and they're everything they claim to be.

The packaging is sturdy and made for long-term storage, yet it just takes a second to rip one open and light it up. I've tried both the "commercial grade" and the "military grade" (these are the milspec), and the military grade seems to burn somewhat brighter and longer, although to a great degree, intensity and duration depend on ambient temperature. I've noticed that in warmer temperatures, you get a brighter light that doesn't quite last as long, while in the cold, you get a dimmer light that lasts much longer.

These are the long duration light sticks. They aren't as bright as the "high intensity" ones, but instead of 30 minutes, these last at least 8 hours (in cold weather, I've had some producing useful amounts of light for about 12 hours).

Requiring no batteries or electricity, these are safe in hostile environments, such as when investigating a gas leak. They're also bright and strong enough to make a good replacement for road flares. They're also lightweight, safe for kids and handy on the boat for emergency lighting.

Everyone should have a supply on hand for emergencies - definitely recommended.

If you really want good light say to perform a task by white is the way to go. Yes it's harder for your eyes to adjust to over the green but they put out way more light

We used this to keep a very dark johnny on the spot lighted, so our guests were not afraid to go inside it at night. The light stayed on all night and everyone was relieved!

I got these recently and I really like them. They are bright (at least for the initial few hours) and slowly fade away.
They seem strong and emit a nice white light.
I once kept a started light stick outside for a whole night (it was about 45- 50 deg F) and it still was glowing in the morning, probably like after about 8 hours (the brightness reduces in colder weather).
