Frequently Bought Together
The Cyalume SnapLight is a yellow 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 12 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.

The civilian version (SnapLight) is better then the military version (ChemLight) as the civilian version has all the latest composition and chemistry updates allowing for more brightness and shelf life longevity (5 year as compared to 4 for the ChemLights). This is because ChemLights are required to meet a DoD standard that locks them in to an older chemistry configuration.
I keep them in my camping and emergency kits.

At over a dollar each these are best for emergency use or as a safety light for a Halloween night. I tested one and for the first 15 minutes it gives off light equal to about 1/2 the light of a standard night light. For those roughly 15 minutes, you can read black and white about a foot away from the light source. After that the stick starts to dim to a low glow until the only visible light is of the liquid in the stick. Technically it will last 12 hours, but realistically the light stick is only useful for a short time under most situations. Unless you are in a harsh environment where flashlights won't cut it, these are not a necessary item to have as a light source for most emergencies.
Instant emergency light that can be used in almost any type of environment.
Good to get attention/warn others in a dark/harsh environment while liquid is at its peak.
While the stick is 6 inches from hook to base, the amount of illuminated liquid when completely mixed is just over 3.5 inches.
Price, at over a dollar each there are longer lasting reusable light sources you can obtain for emergency use.
Duration of "useful" light much shorter than advertised.
Since it's that time of the year, I decided to do another test of these light sticks to be sure I was giving it a fair review. Testing the same color (Yellow) I combined the liquid and early in the test the stick was bright, almost nearing the light given off by a night light. But within 30 minutes the brightness diminished and became a steady glow.Read more ›
These snap sticks help take the scary out of the dark - I give them to our kids when they have friends 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. We give one to each kid when the power is out, and it helps them feel secure and able to sleep in their own beds. An added bonus is the hole at the end, which allows the user to attach a lanyard and free up their hands.

I bought these for emergency purposes. The yellow and green seem to be the brightest. I will definitely be buying more.
