Product Description

Color: Blue

The Cyalume SnapLight is a blue 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.

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.

Color: Red Verified Purchase
Having spent 32 years with the military, I'm quite familiar with "ChemLights" which is the military term for these 12-hour light sticks. I noted that one reviewer was less then happy with the illumination capabilities of the red ChemLights. Yes, if you're looking to illuminate a large area or even a two person tent in a safe and secure area, red is probably not the best choice in colors. On the other hand, if you're looking for a ChemLight which doesn't draw as much attention to your position and is more difficult for animals and humans to see, red is the preferred color. It's for up close and personal use such as map reading or marking a location without becoming a light house beacon. It also does not attract as many - if any - night time animal and insect visitors. If there's information to be considered in this review, it's suggested that selecting a color in ChemLights should include an assessment of situation, application and desired results.

These are top of the line light sticks. I used cases of the military version in the Army and these are the same thing made by the same company just the civilian version.

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.

I'm the kind of person who likes to test their gear before relying on it in the backwoods, so I cracked one of these as soon as I opened the package. I was easily able to navigate around a pitch-black house and yard, without the benefit of any other artificial light. It was brighter than other glow sticks I've tried (Coleman brand, for example), and was still putting out enough light to read by a full 12 hours later. The plastic walls are angled instead of round, and are thicker than any others I've tried, which means they should hold up well against accidental cracking in the backpack. No lanyards are included, FYI, but I don't consider that too much of a detriment. Overall: great product, very reasonable price.

I bought sets of several colors of these Cyalume SnapLight Industrial Grade Chemical Light Sticks, for emergency preparedness and the first night of having them, I opened up each color and activated each one.

Quickly, I'll just say that these seem to be pretty standard, if rugged, light sticks. They're a bit thicker than what I've typically seen kids playing with at 4th of July fireworks shows and the like, but basically they are what they are. Light sticks, with perhaps an industrial use slant. This is the first time I've bought light sticks, so I can't really speak to price.

Anyway, what you probably care most about, here, is the brightness. On first snapping of the stick, they will certainly light up a small room, well enough to see clearly. After an hour, however, you'll probably be stumbling around in the dark unless you're holding it in front of you, these are quite dimmer than a candle flame. As time goes on, the light will get dimmer and dimmer. Put a few down on sharp corners, and you'll avoid smacking into anything in the dark and hurting yourself, but after a few hours you're basically just using these as signal flares, rather than a source of good working illumination. There will certainly be a glow inside the stick for many hours, perhaps even 12 as advertised, but the nature of the chemistry is such that the strongest brightness will be at the beginning, and it will taper off from there. As you approach the 12 hour mark you can probably read a book with it, if you hold it right up against the page, but that's probably about it.

So, which color is brightest? They're all about the same, I would say, at least of the ones advertised at 12 hours. But, bear in mind, the human eye is tuned more to see shades of color closer to the green part of the spectrum.
