As described. I have not used them yet thankfully … As described. I have not used them yet thankfully. They were purchased to use in an emergency for Oversize Load Transport if something happened on a night move. I can not say how long they last since they have not been used yet. If they do last and are bright then it would be worth 5 stars.

Which color should you get? Because human eyes are much better at seeing shades of color towards the green part of the spectrum, green light sticks will always appear brighter than red, which we see relatively poorly, even though I suspect both light stick colors put off the same amount of absolute brightness. By that reasoning alone, you might be inclined to buy the green version of these, which *seem* much brighter than the red ones. If you’re interested in light to work by in the dark, and don’t have a flashlight…

Highly recommended Fresh pack, definitely lasts for 2 hours – they probably could have marketed these as 4 hours. Temperature of use was 65-75F (18-24C). Visible for over a mile (~1.6km) in moonless clear (no mist/fog) night – using the simple wire stand helps with distance, getting the glow stick up off the ground improves the ability to see it past road surface changes which is important.I have 30 minute flares/fuses and these glow sticks are not as bright as those, but the flare flame is more…
