To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was very surprised as to how bright these were. My lights went out due to bad storm the other night. I used a couple of these glow sticks. To my surprise it lit my whole yard up outside and my house on the inside. My lights were out all night, when I woke the next morning they were still half as bright. These last longer than what they are promised for. If you need back up supplies or camping light. Dont buy into those really high end lights. These work the best.
It blew my mind how bright they were. I will be ordering a lot more. I'm moving in the woods soon, in my cabin, these will work great for all emergencies that come up, and for camping. Honestly anything you need light for. I've even used them to work on my truck. I would recommend these over any other light source online. Cheap and affordable. You cant go wrong. Buy them and you will see, they are super bright.
These are great glow sticks for the price. They are relatively inexpensive, bright and will last for 24 hours. They are really effective for the first 8-12 hours. I use them on every camping trip. I mark my tent at night so other people don't fall and trip on my stake lines and so that I can find my way back to my tent if I get up at night to use the latrine. Don't forget to stock up for Halloween and give a couple to your kids. They are a great safety item. I recommend this product.
I have been buying glow sticks for the past 4 years on Halloween. We fill empty milk jugs with water, draw Jack-o-lantern faces on them, and drop a glowstick in each one. These are the best glow sticks I have used so far. They really made the jug glow, and they lasted longer than 24 hours (the glow was fainter after 12 or 18 hours. I highly recommend these.
Bought these as an emergency lighting source ahead of Hurricane Irma. It's nice to have these so there isn't a need to rely on batteries. I didn't need them, fortunately, but I have put a few in each vehicle for roadside emergencies. Great customer service and follow-up, long shelf life, non-toxic, fast delivery (mine arrived as the storm hit us). This is definitely one of those products that you are better off having and not using, rather than wanting and and desperately needing.
My building recently lost power for seven hours. Extremely glad I had these. I also use them as nightlights in hotel bathrooms (that way I don't have to remember to take them back home). I took one to a concert last summer and gave one to my brother to put on his car. When lit, they made it so much easier to find each other when he came to pick me up when the show was over and dozens of cars where picking other people up.
I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another pack of these when needed. I've only tested one so far and although it didn't last as long as listed, this snap light is very bright and reached it's max brightness in only a few seconds after use. I'm not sure exactly how long it lasted, it says 12 hours in the listing but the one I tested was out well before that. I left it hanging and checked around 10 hours later and it was out.
I didn't dislike anything about these. I have to be honest that I placed in my different emergency kits, including the trunk of my vehicle. I got these for an emergency. I cannot honestly give five stars because I have not used one. I could have gotten the cheap ones but I'm hoping these operate as promised. In the past, I've often gotten what I pay for. I don't mind price when things work as promised. Here is hoping...
i cannot comment on the "Rate Features." This i can only do after about 9 -12 months. the "longevity" and the "Brighness," only time will tell. lastly, i i wll not open one to see its "brightness," for it is not to be used for playtime. i will use it when the power goes out, this is safe me batteries. i will also use it outdoors. P.S the package was not handed to me. are you kidding? we are in the middle of the COVID-19. thank you.
These are great emergency lights, they last at least 12 hours and are incredibly bright. I admit, though, that I bought these for my kids to play with, and they worked extremely well for that, too. We turned out all the lights in the basement, closed the blinds, and cracked a couple of these open. We played for a couple of hours, then they insisted on sleeping with them in their bed like a night light.
Purchased for personal safety lighting for after hours trek during Defense Force training. Works as expected. My only feedback would be that even though it has a hole for string, it has no string or hook included with which to attach to anything. Since we are an all volunteer organization and we must purchase all equipment, including uniforms, so it is nice to find required equipment at a reasonable cost.
