The Cyalume ultra high intensity flare alternative SnapLight is an orange industrial grade phthalate-free chemical light stick measuring 8” long, for providing instant 360 degree illumination, that can be seen up to a mile away for up to 30 minutes in optimal conditions. It also has a reflective strip, and a wire stand for positioning at an angle for better visibility. To activate the light stick, bend, snap and shake the tube. The SnapLight is waterproof, non-toxic, non-flammable, and emits no heat. This SnapLight meets Department of Transportation (DOT) non-hazardous standards, requires no permit for storage, and has up to a two-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. This SnapLight floats in water and has a specially designed illuminating substance that performs in warm, cold, wet and dry environments.
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 and 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.

The main reason for the high price is that these are quite bright and suitable for emergency use. They don't burn out after 30 minutes, but they start to get dimmer.
Sometimes I'll toss one to a jogger who isn't wearing any lights or reflectors, too.
My only issue with these is that there is no way to hook a lanyard or any thing to them really.
The little band at the top in the pictures is paper/foil and the wire is very malleable and not glued or attached in any other way than just the paper band. Maybe I'll be able to find some sort of container to put them in to connect to a lanyard.
The lights are fine, industrial grade orange color... No problems there. I was expecting little holders to go with them, as pictured... Nope. Not even in retail packaging...
Worst thing is I paid more for these as opposed to regular snap lights because there were supposed to be road flare alternatives... I won't be purchasing these again ... I will purchase the regular lights at half the price from other venders.

Great item, no chance of fire being caused by unintentional ignition.Published 16 months ago by Lawrence A. Mills
Could you light a flare, hold it a foot away from your face and stare at it for a minute? No. you'd probably damage your eyes. But you can with this light.Published on February 3, 2014 by Sean Brady
