Product Description

The Cyalume ChemLight is the gold standard in chemical light technology. Standard issue for U.S. military personnel around the globe, these tactical-grade light sticks aren’t some child’s toy you find at a party store. When the Navy has a man overboard, they reach for a ChemLight to mark his location. When a downed Air Force pilot needs to mark his position for extraction, it’s ChemLight he trusts. These ChemLights provide bright, reliable, 360-degree illumination for up to 12 hours. The green ChemLight is so bright it can be seen from up to a mile away – so you’ll have no problem illuminating small rooms, passages, trails and camps with just a single light stick. ChemLight is waterproof, non-toxic and non-flammable. The light stick has a hook and gate top which keeps the light source secure whether you’re hanging, attaching or stringing them together. To activate ChemLight, simply bend, snap and shake to immediately flood your surrounding area with functional light. Each green ChemLight measures 6” long, 10 sticks per pack. Each light stick is individually foil-wrapped for protection from light and moisture and boasts a four-year shelf life from date of manufacture. ChemLight meets Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA) specifications. National/NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) are printed on each product for reference. For technical specifications, see the Material Safety Data Sheet below. The maker of ChemLight, Cyalume, is a pioneer and world leader in chemical lighting solutions for tactical and safety applications. Trusted by the US Military and government agencies for over 40 years, you can rest assured knowing that our products will perform when they are needed most – without question. All Cyalume products are expertly engineered and crafted in the USA to strict quality standards.

I've thrown a few of these into every emergency bag, kit, box and drawer that I have. After testing this Cyalume item against others listed on Amazon, I can report that these are brighter and last longer. Buy green for better ambient lighting. Buy yellow for better visibility from long-distances.

I purchased a number of different glow sticks at various price points, and these are by far the best and brightest. Twice as bright as the cheaper ones, and longer lasting.

Also much more expensive, but for an emergency kit, worth the premium. I did a side-by-side test, this brand and 2 cheaper ones. At activation this one was clearly MUCH brighter than the other two. Twice as bright would not be a big stretch. An hour after activation, this one was just as bright, the cheapies had dimmed considerably. Not even a close race.

My ONLY complaint (besides the price) is that they are individually wrapped - which by itself isn't a bad thing, but the wrapper is awfully tough to open in full daylight. I can only imagine what it would be like in patch darkness. Something to think about if you're putting them somewhere you can easily reach them in the dark.

No, literally cool. A chemical compound that is luminescent without heat. Imagine the applications of such a tool. Under water, in an explosive atmospheric environment, etc.

Of course I just had to pop one the day I got them after it got dark. These aren't your light sticks from your childhood. Those things would last a couple of hours at best before fading into nothingness. These, on the other hand, are quite bright. I could read my Kindle with it, although I wouldn't really recommend it, but what was (again) cool was the fact that twelve hours later, just like advertised, I could still read in otherwise total darkness. Sure, it had dimmed but they live up their advertisement and my expectations.

The box I ordered earlier this month was manufactured in Aug 2011 and have a four year shelf life. This is something you want to keep in mind if you're building your bugout bag or emergency kit. Off on a tangent, if that's what you're doing, then make sure to make a list of what's in your kit and list the expiration dates of everything in it and keep things rotated.

Anyway, store them out of sunlight and away from excessive heat (their words) and you'll be pleasantly surprised when you need emergency light and discover that the batteries in your flashlight died six weeks ago.

In my decade and a half in the military I have probably gone through thousands of Cyalume ChemLight just myself. They have a million uses, both fun and functional. But most important the Cyalume models have proven to be utterly reliable and bright. When a chemstick might be your only chance of rescue, identification, light or escape, having one that is bright, works and lasts is very important. You can use chemsticks in areas where it is not safe to use other sources of light, like flashlights. So following a car accident for example, where fuel may be all over, it is better to have a stick to break and be able to see than using a flashlight. For this reason I keep several in all of my vehicles and change them out regularly. They can also be used as flares to mark an area without worrying about fire or flame. The uses for them are only limited by imagination, from Christmas lights to Fourth of July 'rockets' there is a lot of fun and use to be had.

The chemlight sticks are military grade and are exactly what I needed. The expiration date on the sticks are nearly 4 years away! I have not found that length of time on any sticks in nearby stores that carried subpar chemlights!

I guess it's military grade for a reason. Well worth the price. Bought these for a camping trip. Compared against other folks' light sticks at camp, these were brighter (way brighter) and larger. Used them starting around 9pm and they were still bright the next morning at 9 so they definitely lasted more than 12 hours.

Good product I would buy it again. The only thing I noticed when I tested the stick. Is it really only gave out about 8 hours of usable light. After 8 hours I had to take the stick and put it really close to what I wanted to see.

When I saw that you could buy these on Amazon I had to purchase a few of my own. I used these back in 2005 when I served in the military on field training missions and these chem lights worked well during the night. There are however more practical applications for these chem lights for everyday use. They work well when you get a flat tire on the highway at night and don't want to have your blinker lights on while changing a tire(blinkers and police lights attract drunk drivers for some odd reason!), during Hurricane season they work better and are much safer than using candles in the house, can be used out on the water to identify life savers during fishing trips, and these are perfect for camping with the family. I found one in my seabag from 2008 last summer and they do have a expiration date as a previous person noted. Either way, these are good in case one of these solar flares knocks of us the grid for a couple of years like Professor Michiko warned us about a few months ago ):
