Product Description

The Cyalume SnapLight is a white industrial 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 SnapLight 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. Each light stick is individually foil-wrapped for protection from light and moisture, and has up to a five-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. 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.

Not super bright but lasted for a very long time.
ERIC WATTERS
I would definitely recommend these to anyone simply because they are great to have and dont take up a lot of room to store them.
Dmitriy Zak
Just one of these sticks easily gave enough light to get around the house safely.

These simply work. Used them extensively in the military.

One thing I will add to your purchase consideration: the Cyalume SnapLight "Industrial" Grade Chemical Light Sticks lights are chemically very similar to the "Military Grade", but with a longer shelf-life. The "military grade" lights are formulated per DoD specification, and as such cannot take advantage of newer formulations.

In short: if you are buying the "Military Grade" lights because you think they are better somehow, they are not. They are the same brightness. As a matter of fact, according to the manufacturer the military versions have one year less shelf life (4 versus 5 years for the industrial series). The higher price reflects the custom (older) formulation that the DoD specifies.

Source for this info: Cyalume Corporation.

So unless you are required to buy an NSN product, do yourself a favor and pay less for a longer shelf-life and get the industrial version of this product.

Hope this helps.

I always keep some snap light sticks in the house for power outages and sleepovers. We've had every color, but these white ones are the best. They last a full 8 hours and we haven't had any "duds" in the pack. The white light glows brighter than red, yellow, green, and blue, and help take the scary out of dark rooms. I give them to our kids when they have kids sleeping over, or when they sleep out in the yard in the tent, to save on flashlight batteries.

Because they're sealed and basically unbreakable, and they don't get hot, they are safe for kids to use unsupervised. From a power outage standpoint, they're safer than a candle or a lantern for getting around a dark house. An added bonus is the hole at the end, which allows the user to attach a lanyard and free up their hands.

I purchased several of these snap lights and white is not the color that you want. Within two hours after snapping a white one it is so dim that it is almost useless. Go with the green or yellow. Those ones were MUCH brighter and stayed that way a LOT longer !!

I have a habit of keeping some light sticks in my hiking pack and after Halloween I needed to get some replacements. After reading some reviews I decided to go with these. Let me say this, when you first snap them they illuminate greatly, but after about 30 minutes they are only good for markers(greatly reduced visibility). After about 2 hours they are completely useless. I am glad that I tested one tonight. I would hate to have been somewhere that I was planning on using them and had to endure the embarrassment of displaying these. I am very disappointed in the product and will be attempting to return them. I would not recommend these for anything or to anyone. Pure waste of money!

Even though these are Cyalume light sticks, they don't live up to the name. These are only as bright as the average light stick and the light fades away very quick; to a light dim after about 2hrs like someone stated previously. Even at its brightest, it can't even light up a normal sized bedroom. No doubt these will last up to 8 hours as stated, but the catch is that after an hour or two, they're dim, very very dim. From experience, orange/gold light sticks are the brightest of all the Cyalume lights, one of these can light up a hallway or large sized bedroom/living room.

I can recommend that this product works well in below freezing weather. Used them to mark a path, and even in 9 degree weather, worked perfectly well, and stay lit a bit longer than 8 hours listed.

Delivered EXTREMELY quickly from the merchant! I got it WELL before expectated!

These light sticks are the worst light sticks I have ever used. I don't care what the manufacturer says these are no more than path indicators!!
I have used light sticks for more years than I can remember. Having ran out, I bought these. What a surprise during Hurricane Sandy, as soon as the lights went out ( around 6 pm NYC time ) I went to my first line of backup. The light sticks.

My wife stood around as I opened the first one ( we use 2 at a time ) and chuckled after I cracked it and it came on. She said " you 've got to be kidding". The light was SO DIM I thought it was a defective. Not yet wanting to give up on humanity yet I cracked the second one.

A barely glowing tube of plastic.
What a disappointment.

Another family member I gave some to , called and asked if these were "seconds" I said no, but thinking about it they must have been old stock at best.

But since these are part of my emergency preparedness kit I won't be buying these again!!!
Can't take the chance.

My advice to you all is go to sporting goods big box store and buy them there. Same price and I have never had a problem with them..
If you want to know where the store's name rhymes with Rick's. Or the store that starts with a "C" or "B".

I would do a video review but the light sticks were to dim to film. And I have a low light camera!
Just my story, another story in this naked city of a thousand stories,,, Just my story.
